Born and raised in Illinois, Chad Kenyon moved to Madrid, Spain where his childhood fascination with hair color quickly turned into a bustling career. After 16 years in Spain, he returned to the US and headed to California. He immediately joined an elite group of colorists at Cristophe Beverly Hills. It was here that he mastered and evolved the art of balayage.
Chad has since developed his signature service, COLORMELT™ - which includes balayage accompanied by his face-framing HairStrobing method. His COLORMELT™ service enhances facial features and gives a more authentic feeling than traditional coloring. Clients leave his chair feeling like a younger fresher version of themselves!
In 2014, Chad joined forces with Olaplex and continues to serve Olaplex Brand Ambassador. His dedication to hair color education is demonstrated in the brand’s educational videos on the Olaplex app and olaplex.com
Maintaining healthy, colored hair is, and always has been his number one priority. Chad takes extreme care to ensure that all of his clients are educated and understand that their color journey may be unexpected in order to achieve the ideal result. His meticulous approach and unparalleled care he takes when treating tresses have made him a highly trusted and sought-after force in the industry.
Chad’s ability to create customized hair color that enhances his clients’ natural beauty continually draws in celebrities such as Kieran Shipka, Elisabeth Moss, Carla Gugino, Abigail Spencer, Rachel Keller, and Rowan Blanchard. It’s not only A-listers whose admiration he’s garnered but leading publications such as Vogue, Refinery29, Popsugar, and Allure among others have praised his work.
