INDIAN ROCKS BEACH – Former big-city hair stylist Chad Malm is under negotiations to lease space on 15th Street in Indian Rocks Beach to open a business under his name. He is currently conducting business under the name Headhunters West.
Malm apprenticed at the Manhattan salon, Bumble and Bumble. During his time there, the California native owned and operated Claude Nine at 9 Claude Lane in San Francisco’s French Quarter.
According to a press release, “Malm’s sheers have worked their magic on a star-studded list of celebrities and models, earning him a coveted following among fashion editors at such magazines as Cosmopolitan, Allure, Harpers Bazaar and Modern Bride which have featured his work.”
“Each haircut is a creative process that begins with a consultation,” Malm said in the press release. “It’s a collaborative brainstorm between the stylist and the client. After a clear concept is established and the hair is shampooed, the art begins.”
The studio is at 102 15th Ave. in Indian Rocks Beach. Call 415-8009.
Revised. A previous story said Malm had opened a salon at the location under his name.
