SHREEDA’S TOP TEN
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A STYLIST?
I am a second generation stylist. Growing up on the salon floor gave me early insight to my passion and true calling. After graduate school, I decided to follow my heart and make people feel beautiful for a living.
WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR TRAINING/EDUCATION?
I graduated from PCI Academy in Plymouth, MN.
WHAT HELPS YOU STAY CREATIVE?
I am immersed in my passion and that drives me everyday. Being content keeps me motivated and the happiness derived from that keeps me creative.
WHICH TRENDS ARE YOU LOVING RIGHT NOW AND WHY?
Sun kissed effortless highlights are my favorite right now!
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER STYLISTS?
Because of my graduate work in Education, I am able to teach and guide my clients so they can make better desicions about their hair. Client education is very important to me and I make sure my clients can duplicate the style and make informed choices about their haircare.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHANGE YOUR OWN HAIR COLOR? DO YOU LIKE TO BE DRASTIC? DARING? NATURAL?
Every few months I tweak my look. I have had fire engine red hair, violet, blonde…you name it! I try to keep it chic and classy. So if I have a bold color than I have a more classic cut. Hair grows, have fun with it!
HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO A NEW CLIENT WHO WANTS A DRASTICALLY NEW LOOK?
I want to know what is fueling this change. Sometimes a drastic change is needed, but if it is for the wrong reasons one can quickly regret those choices. Once I know they are 100% ready for the change I try to find a way to incorporate the change while keeping in mind their skill level and lifestyle.
WHAT ARE YOUR ASPIRATIONS FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS? 10 YEARS?
I want to grow my business and expand my reach. I have started doing tutorials online to benefit more people with tips and tricks. I am an artistic educator for OYA color and plan to further my career as an educator. I would like to someday be a platform artist. Most of all, I would like to grow every opportunity that comes my way. The beauty of the future is that we have no idea what is in store! The possibilities are endless!
YOUR FAVORITE “AT HOME” TIP FOR EVERYONE…
Don’t go to bed with wet hair! It causes dandruff. Quickly blow dry and braid your hair. You will wake up to beachy waves!
