Since 1985, Chi Wah Soo has been on a mission to change the beauty industry in Rochester, NY. Joining the Aveda network in 1988, Chi Wah found that her passion for hair and beauty was supported by a company that understood the importance of using natural ingredients and giving back to the Earth.
In 1989, Chi Wah met her then-husband, Paul Brown, a musician from England who shared her zeal for transformation and understood the significance of giving back to society. Together, they opened their own Aveda concept salon in 1993, making it their goal to change the Rochester industry, one stylist at a time.
Chi Wah began an apprenticeship program that has blossomed into one of her greatest accomplishments. All of Chi Wah's employees are skill-certified by Chi Wah and trained with the latest and best education available. In 2001, the salon was co-branded with the Aveda name, becoming Chi Wah Aveda. The salon was awarded “Top 200 Fastest-Growing Salons" by Salon Today magazine in 2005 & 2007, and in 2019. When the salon moved to Clover Commons plaza in 2009, it changed its name to Chi Wah Organica.
