SHONEL - Senior stylist
Hi, my name is Shonel and I have been hairdressing since 2003 and I love it even more now than when I started.
Since I can remember I've wanted to be a hairdresser. I love the feeling of making someones day, making someone feel better about themselves. When I was growing up I loved playing hairdresser with anyone that would let me, from playing hairdresser at home with my pop my passion became an obsession.
In 2008 I joined the Pura Veeda team and have been here ever since. My speciality in salon is foiling and blondes. I'm very particular with how I do my foiling and have designed my own technique to achieve results specific to each particular clients needs and ideals. All while never compromising the integrity of the hair. As well as experimenting with my blondes and foiling, I also love trying new and unique styles with men's cutting. Giving them something different and edgy, but easily maintainable.
In 2007 I was looking for something else, more of a challenge, so I decided to go back to school and complete my Certificate III in Beauty. Juggling full time work and full time study was a real challenge but I loved every aspect. Having the skills to do beauty services as well really breaks up my day and gives me something else to focus on in the salon as well as my hairdressing. I love giving someone a complete makeover, from head to toe.
I'm committed to always learning and growing as a hairdresser so I can give my clients the latest styles and the best look that will suit them. I look forward to looking after you all for many years to come.
