Business mixes art and hair

Cheveux Salon & Spa opened its doors on Main Street in January

Husband and wife duo Andrea and Chris Fortney have mixed art and style with Cheveux Salon and Spa. Located on 10 N. Main St. across from Eagle Creek Coffee Co., Cheveux offers cuts, colors, highlights and waxing and features paintings from local artists in the salon.

Andrea, who has been a stylist for nine years and a Zionsville resident for six, said she wanted to bring something different to the Zionsville area.

“I love the Zionsville community and wanted to have good location and offer really good customer service,” she said.  “I love the feeling of making people happy and am confident we can bring our clients the services they need.”

Since opening on Jan. 10, Cheveux has participated in the Zionsville art walks on the first Friday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m., and Fortney said they have had a great response from both art-goers and clients alike, selling around 10 paintings in the first month.

The Salon currently employs three stylists and a receptionist and is plans to expand its services to offer messages and facials at the end of February. In addition to its normal services, Cheveux offers mainstay ammonia-free hair color, Bumble and Bumble hair products and Brazilian blowouts.

While this is the couple’s first business foray together, Andrea said things had been awesome so far. Andrea typically sticks with customer service and styling, while her husband handles the salon’s bookkeeping and marketing efforts.

“I really like being on the brick street. Our customers are so friendly, and I really like being able to run my salon the way I want it. My goal is to be the best there is,” she said.

Cheveux Salon and Spa is open on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To schedule an appointment or for more information call 873-0033 or visit
