Hair By Amber Shastid
I have been in the industry since 2006 and professionally styling hair for 12 years. While I have vast experience combined with training by some of the industry’s most highly regarded professionals, as new trends come out, I never stop learning.
With years of extensive Wella color education, I love to create beautiful organic hues, balayage and multidimensional blondes. I also love all aspects of hair styling and cutting from detailed barber style cuts to long beachy layered hair.
Hair integrity is priority number one for me and I feel strongly about educating my clients on maintaining the health of their hair and teaching them how to easily achieve salon worthy styles at home. As well as technical training, I have had sensitivity training in working with and providing a safe space for clients that suffer from Trichotillomania. I truly enjoy working with clients with Trich and helping them choose the best style for their situation as well as ways to style their hair at home. Ultimately, my goal is to make clients feel more comfortable and confident in my chair and in their daily life.
When I am not in the salon I love to travel the world with my boyfriend, learn about different cultures and scuba dive. I’m a self-professed foodie that enjoys Austin’s eclectic food scene and I always have great restaurant recommendations for my clients or recipes to trade. In my free time you will also find me hanging out with my adorable miniature Australian Shepherds, Indie and Bear.
