Continuing education with Paul Mitchell Professional, as well as research on emerging trends within the haircare industry are important to the Alchemy crew. We attend workshops and  intensive retreats frequently, and practice on our mannequins before we practice on you. You can be assured that we will bring the full extent of our combined knowledge to you within the salon.

Boys may come and go, but a good stylist lasts forever…at my last Alchemy appointment, it was brought to my attention that I have been with Sadia for 10 years, which makes her my longest relationship! We’ve been through many cuts and colors together as my styles have changed over the years.  What keeps me coming back are the awesome skills, personalities, and environment that Alchemy offers.” ~ Amber


I have been following Paulette around Springfield for the past 18 years.  Sa’dia and Paulette have created a beautiful, professional and inspiring salon.  Their creativity and passion for their craft is obvious.  I feel Paulette is the best coloring expert in Springfield.   Since I have naturally curly hair, which Paulette also has, I know I can trust her with not only my innermost psychological secrets but also to turn my grey frizzy mange into beautiful hair that gets complimented often.  All three women of Alchemy are dedicated, skilled artists who blend a high level of intellectual knowledge with an imaginative eye for fashion which has produced a loyal following of devoted clients.” ~ Jackie


“I have been a client at Alchemy since the business began and I couldn’t even consider going somewhere else. Alchemy is much more than a place to get my hair cut. I feel like a part of the family. I couldn’t recommend Paulette and Sa’dia any more highly.” ~ Tom


“Stepping into Alchemy is always a magical experience for me. I have been getting my hair done there by the amazing, talented Paulette since they first opened and I am still smitten. I love the atmosphere and the dynamic between Paulette and Sa’dia. Their mutual respect for each other and passion for Historic C-Street is evident in everything they do. I leave feeling happy, confident and beautiful every single time. Did I mention that I drive 2.5 hours to get to Alchemy? I do, because you can’t find a place like Alchemy just anywhere, and it is so worth it.” ~ Cassandra


Sunshine in my life…that is what the ladies at Alchemy Salon are. Not only do they provide an extraordinary service to their clients, they also offer unlimited kindness and encouragement.  I have been a client of Sa’dia’s for several years.  During this time, she has listened to, shown concern for, and supported me through many life trials…and she has laughed with me and shared in my joy when those trials were overcome.  She has an incredible spirit, and I sincerely consider her a dear friend.  She helped me find the “Brandy” in me, and she helped me be more beautiful .  Most people look past their hairdresser when they look to name the blessings in their life, but I strongly consider myself more blessed because of my relationship with the ladies of Alchemy.  They are amazing.” ~ Brandy
