Chelsea Walters got the hairdressing bug from her mother, who transformed manes in the family home. Chelsea’s own journey toward scissor mastery took her farther from home, starting with her graduation from the Graham Webb Academy. From there, she studied under TiGi educators for eight years and picked up certifications with Bumble and bumble, Redken, and Wella. Today, she’s showing off her hard work and striking fear into the hearts of elementary-school art teachers at the I Run With Scissors salon, where she doles out her specialty short haircuts and precise coloring techniques. Beyond lowering ears, she also instantly adds length to locks with extensions, twists strands into updos for special occasions, and calms unruly curls with Pravana smoothing treatments.
