If you are looking for a new hairstylist in Asheville, reviewing a sample of their hair portfolio and reading hair salon/stylist reviews from previous customers is a great place to start. Before relocating to Asheville in 2015 Chelsea served a wide variety clients at a boutique salon in Wilmington, NC. Frequent referrals and a fully-booked schedule reflected just how satisfied clients were. Chelsea looks forward to working with satisfied clients in her new hometown of Asheville.
Here are just a few client comments about their favorite hairstylist, Chelsea Goode ...
Love love LOVE this salon. Chelsea Goode ALWAYS nails my 'do. - Jamie Moffett
BEAUTIFUL SALON!! Chelsea is by far the best hair stylist I have ever had- I will be a client for life <3 - Rachel Weisberg
My hair has never looked better! I love this place! Ask for Chelsea, you won't regret it!!! - Keisha Hendrix
Such a great salon! Chelsea is a miracle worker! Whether its coloring, cutting, or even hair extensions, she is amazing. I would recommend this salon to anyone. Love Love Love! - Jordan Kramer
Chelsea did a run through on my wedding hair and did EXACTLY what I wanted! I changed it up on her at the last minute for my bridal portraits and she again made it look exactly like I wanted! I also had Heather Smith do my make up and she covered all my scars! Amazing work these girls do! - Kristin Phillips
I really love the atmosphere that these guys create and maintain. When you walk in, you'll immediatelynotice the "super chill" vibe, rotating art gallery (anything from pop-art to watercolors to impressionistic), and Feng Shui. Chelsea Goode is one of the newest hair stylists who does amazing hair extensions. She also does excellent beard trims. Love it. - Jeremy Ashburn
Chelsea is hands down the best. She understood the fear I had of getting my long hair trimmed and she did not get even the least bit scissor happy. I left the salon with supermodel hair.. Seriously, I took so many selfies afterword. I won't let anyone else touch my hair, even considering flying back to Asheville once I move... Just to have her do my hair again. Also, Sarah the receptionist is a straight up princess! She is so accommodating and has the sexiest phone voice I've ever heard. Bottom line, Studio Chavarria is where you should go to get your hair done or drink wine or see rad art or have great conversation. It deserves all the damn stars. - Heidi Thorpe
Chelsea is amazing and the studio is a fun atmosphere. She was the first person in Asheville I went to and I don't think I'll be going anywhere else. She listens to what you want and uses her talent to make you look amazing. I also love the rotating art! Highly highly highly recommended. - Laura Connor
Meeting Chelsea was like connecting with an old friend and I knew almost immediately that I found my new hairstylist! She pays attention to your specific hair needs and makes the entire experience comfortable and fun! She gave me one of the best haircuts I've ever had! - Lauren Vaught
New to Wilmington, I met Chelsea when looking for a new salon. I knew right away I had connected with someone special. I surrendered myself and my very curly, frizzy hair to her. She was a total professional and made me feel at ease that she would take care of my color and cut as my hairdresser of the last six years did. I was not disappointed. Over the next 1-1/2 years Chelsea suggested changes that I appreciated and I always loved the results. It was a pleasure to sit in her chair and I left the salon feeling beautiful and relaxed. She is a great stylist and a wonderful person.
When I lived in Wilmington, NC I had the absolute pleasure of discovering hair guru Chelsea Goode. For almost a decade she was my go-to gal for cuts AND colors. That last part is important. Because what I learned over the next 4 years - living in Atlanta, GA and Nashville, TN is this: CUT Stylists and COLOR Stylists are mutually exclusive. It has been absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for me to find a Stylist (like my lovely, and dearly missed, Chelsea) who is exceptional at both. Hence why, over the past 4 years, whenever I find myself fortuitous enough to cross paths with Chelsea Goode I immediately do the following: 1. Hug her neck, and 2. BEG her to squeeze me in for a cut AND color. Do yourself a solid...let the lady handle your locks.
I set my busy life aside the minute I sit down in Chelsea's chair. She makes me feel completely pampered and cared for. Chelsea works her magic on my wildly curly hair unlike any stylist I have ever visited. I go with complete confidence that I will love the results every time and that is why I keep coming back!
I have the type of hair that is challenging to cut. No joke... I can count on two fingers the people that have been up to the task. Chelsea holds number one in that slot and has held it since fresh out of Cosmetology school. I live in the Asheville area and have been really missing her skills. I am thrilled that she is back in town. I'll see you soon Chelsea!!!!!!
