One of the industry’s leading multi-cultural salons in Pittsburgh. Take a ride through Pittsburgh’s vibrant Eastside and you will find a salon space unique in it’s own way, Sola Salon. In studio form, Sola offers stylists the space to own and operate their own business.
After fourteen years in the industry and six years as a traditional salon owner, Chelsea decided to step away from tradition and into trendy for more flexibility and less time away from her family. “Sola has been amazing! I’m able to schedule around the activities of my three children and still be available to my clients!”
Chelsea said the transition has been seamless, and she credits her extremely loyal clientele for the smooth process. As unique as the neighborhood she works in, Chelsea serves a diverse clientele throughout Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. Her main goal in haircare is to help clients embrace the natural texture of their hair. “I love to color, cut and style, but there is no greater feeling than helping a client love their natural hair. The acceptance of naturally curly hair has been a long time coming. “I’m just happy to be a part of the movement here in Pittsburgh.”
