SALON ADAIR: Family Business Thrives Under Leadership Of Chelsea Adair




Born in Redlands CA, Chelsea Adair considers herself a native of Encinitas, CA after moving there at the age of three. Coming from a bloodline of renowned stylists, Chelsea has piloted her family business to new heights, with clientele ranging from Nicole Kidman to Fergie, The Beastie Boys, Sophia Collier (Miss Nevada Earth 2020), Seattle songstress Scarlet Parke, and countless others.

In 1929, Chelsea’s great-grandmother, Phyllis Adair, opened one of the first beauty schools in Southern California. Chelsea’s mother, Maxine Sullivan, soon followed in her mother’s footsteps, founding esteemed salon “Maxine’s Backdoor” in Redlands. It was only a matter of time before the family tradition was passed down to Chelsea.

From appearing on TV Shows such as “The Look: All Stars”, to prepping A-list artists to slay the stage at Coachella, Chelsea has become a mainstay in the beauty industry. Given her rich heritage in the space, it’s no surprise that Chelsea is driving an evolution in style, all while cementing her family’s legacy.

Since 2006, Chelsea’s brick and mortar, Salon Adair, has perennially been rated Carlsbad’s number one Salon.

Known to frequently change her appearance, some regulars have been unable to recognize Chelsea when coming in for an appointment – a testament to her chameleon-like approach to style. She never settles and is sure to push the envelope of beauty by always evolving and providing her clients with the cutting-edge in style.
