Owner, Master Stylist & Colorist, Certified Handtied Extension Specialist
Chelsea is well known for her devotion to fantastic hair, and strives to make each client look and feel their absolute best. Chelsea works hard to help her clients meet their beauty goals, and built her business by ensuring each client is overly satisfied with her exceptional level of service. Chelsea is creative and artistic, approaching each appointment with fresh ideas. She stays on top of the most current techniques, thanks to her commitment to ongoing education. She believes it is important to be excellent at all types of colors and techniques and never stops perfecting her skills. When she’s not taking great care of her clients (friends) at Salon Renew, she can be found “glamping” on a beach somewhere in Michigan or hanging out with her pal Mickey Mouse. She gets copious amounts of love and attention from her devoted husband, her sweet sons, Jamison, Emmett, and Finlee, and their furry bundle of energy, Sookie.

Esthetician, Certified Massage Specialist, NovaLash Certified Lash Extension Specialist
Kelly is an experienced esthetician, specializing in massage, skincare and waxing since 2007. Her laid back personality sets clients at ease, and her affinity for helping others through body work and healthy skincare nourishes the physical body as well as the inner spirit. She places a big emphasis on continuing education to ensure she’s always bringing the latest and greatest services, techniques, advice, and products to her clients. Kelly and her husband, Rick, were married in 2007 and have three boys: Braden, Owen and Will. In her free time, she loves to read books and go running, but not at the same time.
In the time that Jessica has been at Salon Renew, she has dedicated herself to learning all of the new trendy styles and techniques. Her favorite technique is balayage. She strives to keep every client's hair healthy, while also being stylish. She believes patience and time are the key to getting dream hair. She married her high school sweetheart in 2019 on a beach in Grand Cayman. She and her husband have three little ones together, Gavin , Piper, and Lennon, their youngest princess. Oh, and don’t forget Captain Mo (everyone's favorite), the family cat. When she is not at the salon, you can find her roaming the aisles of the nearest Target. She can’t help herself when she finds a good bargain! She also enjoys exploring the city for new restaurants. We aren’t saying she is clumsy, but she has broken six bones throughout her life. So when you meet Jessica, go gentle on the hand shake or hug.

There is just something so warm about Paige. You will feel it the moment you meet her. She always puts her heart and soul into giving each client the hair of their dreams. Her ultimate goal is for you to have the confidence and ability to recreate your “salon hair” at home. Paige’s favorite color trend to create is natural “lived-in” color. When you stick with natural, you will never be out of style. Paige is married to Ty, her biggest fan, who just so happens to be her middle school/high school sweetheart. She loves to spend time with her family, friends, and pup, Sophia. Paige’s lifestyle consists of staying active and being in the gym. If she isn’t working, it’s a pretty safe bet you can find her in the gym. The girl is dedicated; she gets in 5-7 workouts a week! It is pretty obvious she strongly values health and fitness. She believes all beauty starts from within and should be honored by fueling our bodies properly. The more you get to know Paige, the more you will love her.
Office Manager, Receptionist, Nail Tech
Kyra wasted no time getting into the beauty industry. She graduated from high school early in December of 2019, and immediately enrolled in cosmetology school the very next month. Right before graduating, she joined our team as a receptionist and behind-the-scenes assistant, and was more than ready to step into an assistant role the day she graduated cosmetology school. She has embraced honing her skills and expanding her knowledge to ensure every client gets the hair of their dreams and feels beautiful in their skin. A little known fact about Kyra (that still blows us away): she showed livestock for 10 years on a national level, even winning Reserve Grand Champion twice! On her days off, Kyra is either at home with her dogs, Charli and Rip, bingeing Netflix and browsing Amazon, or she’s exploring the wide array of dining and shopping options around Fort Wayne.
Hair Stylist, Esthetician
Jordan is dual licensed in esthetics and cosmetology. So, while she's been heavily hands-on on the hair side of our salon, she has hopes to join our esthetics girls in the future to offer more services for our clients. Jordan enjoys meeting clients and listening to their stories during their visits. If you're the talkative type at the shampoo bowl, you're in for some good conversation with Jordan! In her spare time, Jordan loves spending time with family and bowling with friends. She's been bowling for 6 years, and has actually been on a bowling league for 3.5 years. So, maybe we need to plan a staff bowling outing so she can show off her skills!
Hair Stylist, Esthetician
You aren’t the only one that wants to join our team when you come in for your regular appointments. We first met McKenna as a client. She just so happened to be dual licensed in esthetics and cosmetology so we snagged her up immediately.
McKenna is passionate about bringing out inner confidence in all of her clients - flawless skin and beautiful hair are just an added bonus.
She loves getting to know her clients and hearing all of their stories. By the end of your appointment not only will you be relaxed but you will have gained a friend.
The chances of seeing McKenna outside the salon are very slim, unless you are a member at her gym or work at Crumbl. She is very regimented about getting her work out in 3-5 days a week and takes her heath and nutrition very seriously but don’t you dare tempt her with a Crumbl cookie. On top of working at the best salon in Fort Wayne and staying fit, McKenna is a full time radiology student. She loves learning in all areas of her life and she is always down for a challenge. After you meet McKenna you will understand why we fired her as a client and hired her as a teammate.
