Lotus Hair Design's adept stylists smooth frizzy follicles and fashion progressive hairstyles with vegan and organic products. The deep-conditioning treatment begins with a ritual scalp and shoulder massage, which soothes stressed craniums and clavicles via repetitious kneading and finger-whispered Gregorian chants. Next, tress technicians envelop limp locks with organic keratin oil to infuse skull forests with sustainable style before a dryer dome caps crowns for 20 minutes. Then, an application of sulfate-free Pravana keratin shampoo and conditioner spruces hair to shine, enabling the savvy beautician to snip and style cleansed head nests into trend-setting topiaries or human bonsai flamingo sculptures. Ensuring that patrons leave surging with good vibes, the salon's fuchsia-and-lime-colored interior employs a vibrant décor of plants and lanterns to impart a cheerful, springtime feeling.
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.
