Shanti was born and raised in Northern California's wine country. Her passion for hair flourished in the San Francisco Bay Area from 1985 through 2014 before moving to Portland and taking a short sabbatical. After nearly 3 decades behind the chair and over 56,000 appointments (yes, she counted) she realized it was time to take her talents and experience and pass it along to the next generation. She was privileged to enter the Industry during a time in Berkeley, Ca when there was a huge movement to raise the bar in professionalism, artistry and creativity. From the beginning she was always trying to improve herself and her client experience.
Shanti is an expert when it comes to extensions. She has been certified in Balmain Extensions for over 20 years but she has also broadened her menu to include the latest technologies.
There is no style too short or too long for her. She is truly gifted!
