Alchemist Studio is a private studio salon owned and operated by master stylist/artist, Laura Covell. Laura graduated top of her class from Regency Beauty Institute in 2011. She is certified in Keratin application, advanced color placement, and cutting techniques through Davines, Paul Mitchell, and Framesi. Prior to Regency, Laura's love for the arts lead her to Malone University in Canton, Ohio. While there she gained a unique perspective of mixing, blending, and color application while studying ceramics, painting, fiber art, and printmaking. She believes her artistic talent separates her from other hair stylists. Laura continues her education to keep up with latest hair and beauty trends while working exclusively with Davines products.
This is hands down the best salon I've ever been to. It's clean, gorgeous, and is owned by an incredibly talented artist. Laura, had a cancelation and was able to see me for a quick cut (to give my hair some shape) the day that I called. As someone who is VERY particular about my hair and who does it, I was quite nervous about having a stranger even give me a trim. Luckily, Laura was, by far, the best hairstylist I've ever had. I almost always leave salons dissatisfied or (at best) content, but I left Alchemist Studio ecstatic. Laura was kind, considerate, and definitely knew what she was doing. Yes, the price was steep for a cut ($60) but it was well worth every single penny. I don't even usually write reviews! Thats how much I love this! Go book an appointment now!
This was my first appointment with Laura. I am thrilled with my cut, color and highlights. She suggested a base color which brought warmth to my face, and she was right. My skin was kind of pale, and now it is colorful. I recommend her.
I found Alchemist Studio by reading reviews on Yelp! So many great reviews, I knew where I needed to go. I checked Alchemist Studio's website and booked with Laura, who I am writing to say is absolutely masterful at her craft. I have never been more pleased with my haircuts and the experience. I know Alchemist Studio doesn't really need any more reviews. I simply wanted to give a shout out for Laura who is the best stylist I have possibly ever had! I have dead straight hair and she creates cuts that are exactly what I am looking for and more!
I have been trying desperately to find a good hair stylist ever since moving to the Chandler area 5 years ago. In December, I received a very bad cut from a stylist at a local salon. I decided to give Alchemist Studio a try. I explained to Laura that I needed to have a bad hair cut corrected. She got me in right away. Laura, was very attentive, assessed my situation quickly, knew what needed to be corrected and then she gave me one of the best haircuts I have had in years. I have been back to her ever since and she is always consistent. The salon is gorgeous and relaxing and in a good location as well. Since I had such a good experience with Laura, she now cuts my husband's hair, as well as one of my friends.
The atmosphere is amazing in this unique salon. I was referred to Laura by a friend and she did an absolutely amazing job with my pixie cut. She was also very sweet and understood exactly how I wanted my hair. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for, and she gives free bang trims between haircuts! I would highly recommend this salon and Laura if you want your money's worth.
I love my new hair!!! My stylist, Laura, amazingly layered and cut my hair just like the reference pictures I brought in. She was very helpful in telling me how to manage my new style as well as making sure she knew what I wanted. The layers look lovely :)
Salon is clean, classy, and very much a local art gallery! Came in for a drastic change... Laura, was able to help me pick out a great haircut for my face shape.. she ended up taking off 12 or so inches of hair which I was able to donate to charity right on the spot! I felt very comfortable throughout the whole experience... and can't wait to grow my hair out again so I can see her again!
Not being from Gilbert originally I was skeptical to get my hair done by anyone other than my lifelong hairs stylist back in California. I was pleasantly surprised with Laura! She did a great job on my cut. She listened to what I wanted my hair to do and executed it quite well! Definitely will be a repeat customer. I now have a hairstylist in Chandler to call my own! Not to mention the salon is a great spot to be in! Thank you, Alchemist Studio!
I could not be more relieved to have found Alchemist Studio and specifically, Laura. She is such a GODSEND! Her own super chic style somehow translated to my haircut and I have never looked so good. For 3 straight weeks after getting my hair cut and colored from her I had compliment after compliment -- from good friends to strangers on the street. On top of it all she made me feel super comfortable and relaxed while I was there. I can't recommend her or the salon enough!
I had a wonderful first experience getting my hair colored and cut at Alchemist Studio! Laura, did a beautiful job adding balayage highlights to my hair. I love that this style of highlights is easier to maintain and it continues to look great for months! She even gave me several styling tips that have definitely helped me to keep looking great. The atmosphere at her new location is bright and elegant! As a client, you feel extremely welcomed from the moment you arrive. I definitely felt special getting my hair styled at Alchemist Studio and will be returning!
