who is Shelbs?

People are my passion and give me so much joy. I’ve worked in retail, public education, and the automotive world before finding my home in the world of hair. I’ve got an eye for detail and color unlike most.

Since becoming a licensed cosmetologist in 2016 I’ve learned so much about myself, making others look and feel fabulous, and I’m still learning and growing each day. Growing up watching my dad run a small business taught me what hard work and sacrifice look like. He also taught me all about color and art, money, business relationships, and how to stand my ground.

My passion for hair has taken me to the sets of photoshoots, commercials, TV shows, and even a Disney movie to date. I’ve spent many hours in the salon slaying rainbow hair (only once or twice past midnight). My education continues every day as I push myself to learn new and innovative colors, as well as cutting trends.

I am 112% committed to education which is why it important for me to teach classes for other stylists. If you’ve ever paid a visit to the salon, you have seen me in action explaining chemistry, biology, anatomy, and color theory to my clients and fellow stylists in a way that I like to think of as Bill Nye meets Bob Ross.

My clients range from energetic pre-teens to the not-so-average grandma and are as eclectic as my tattoos. I’ve been lucky enough to work with a number of seriously talented actors and actresses through my TV and film experiences.

The Rad Stylist (aka me, Shelbs) offers a collection of services from hair color & cuts, to color theory education & beard services. I always welcome new clients & am open to discuss any hair questions you might have! Consultations are always complimentary.

You can find me behind the chair most days making magic with hair color at Marquee Salon + Studio in the Downtown area of Vancouver, WA USA. I’d love for you to follow¬†along on social media by clicking the links below, and don’t be a stranger.
