Our Artists

Amanda Castillo

Amanda is a holistic stylist, specializing in curly hair & vibrant color palettes. She graduated from Paul Mitchell The School of North Haven in 2009 and has spent the better part of the past decade building a foundation in New Haven & making a name for myself throughout the region. She views her craft as a hairstylist as a type of healing art form – a perspective which, in 2017, lead to the foundation of The Chrysalis, a private salon for mind-body beauty and whole-being transformation . Her style, which has been coined “sophisticated” & ”soulful” by some of her clients, is informed by her deep appreciation for art of all forms, passion for consistently enhancing technique through continuing education, and rich tapestry of experiences from her travels on the music festival circuit. Amanda's signature custom crafted-color, coils & coifs have graced crowns of musicians, artists and executives alike, from Maine to Colorado, even all the way to Costa Rica! After years of styling clients in freelance fashion, she is so thrilled to have established an artistic home environment to welcome you into.
