A full-service hair salon with a ‘comfortable environment’ is coming to Chelsea


CHELSEA, MI – Studio One Thirty Four offers the Chelsea community not only a full-service hair salon, but also a “comfortable environment” for its clients and stylists, said owner and stylist Nici Forner.

Studio One Thirty Four debuted at 134 W. Middle St. Suite A in March, but the company plans to celebrate its recent opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9. The event is an opportunity to meet the stylist studios and learn more about what the show is all about.

“I’ve always worked in salons at Chelsea, but I just wanted to do something different for myself,” Forner said. “I just wanted to have my own little studio where there’s room for growth (and that’s) something different than what I’ve done before.”

Forner, who has about 18 years of experience, works alongside fellow stylist, Anna Schlaff, to provide services such as women’s haircuts, men’s haircuts, custom coloring, styling highlights, styling and more. Forner added that custom coloring and creating bridal hairstyles is the studio’s “strong point.”

The pair of stylists work with clients to achieve their goals and expectations, Forner said, adding that she plans to continue adding more stylists to Studio One Thirty Four in the future.

Although Forner could have opened her salon in any other city, she decided she wanted to continue her endeavors in the city she calls home.

“I love Chelsea because I feel like everywhere you go you can see a familiar face,” she said. “Everything is very familiar and comfortable, which I want to continue to perpetuate even with a new living room.”

Forner said studio hours vary by day Monday through Saturday, and early morning and late night bookings can be scheduled by appointment. Currently, the studio takes walk-in appointments from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
