Shelby Urban HAIR ARTIST

WHAT YEAR DID YOU START DOING HAIR? 2010

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY? I've been a creative free spirit ever since I was little. I grew up going to the beauty shop weekly with my grandmother and fell in love with the smell, vibe, and the way people would open up to the stylist. I started cutting on my dolls and that led to my friends when I got older. In high school I wasn't sure what I wanted in my future, my cousin had just finished beauty school and encouraged me to go. I have always had a heart for people and learning about others.

 

WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS? Drew Barrymore, Florence Welch, Busy Phillips, with a little Stevie Nicks.

 

WHAT STYLES AND HAIR TYPES DO YOU MOST ENJOY CREATING AND WORKING WITH? For cutting I love working with natural texture, curl, men's hair, and textured cuts. Curly hair has a different layout than a regular cut. I like making clients with natural curl or wave fall in love with their hair and showing them how to style. I also love dry cutting for certain hair types. As for color, Balayage, hair painting and lived-in-color are my favorite techniques. I've also learned about hair and fashion colors from Kevin Murphy and Keune color.

 

FAVORITE Bb. PRODUCT: Thickening Dryspun Finish

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: I took a year off from doing hair after 5 years. It was the best thing for my career. I Learned Toni and Guy color, highlighting and cutting layouts. I also worked under a curly master. Before that I worked with Redken color and a Master Stylist in American crew 5-step men's cutting.
