More about the Owner:
Shanita Clarke is a Boston-based hair stylist with over 10 years of experience in the hair care and design industry. She loves the intimate, long lasting relationship that can form between a client and a dedicated stylist, and appreciates the evolution of the client through their hair journey. For Shanita, there is nothing more rewarding than helping her clients to feel their best (besides spending time with her son Avery, of course).
She attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and graduated with a B.S in Legal Studies and a B.A in Sociology. She landed a position working for the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office, but it wasn't long until she realized that law was not her true passion. While still working full time she attended cosmetology school on nights, and earned her Cosmetology License in 2008.
Shanita’s hair care and design philosophy support the growth of natural, non-chemically altered, healthy hair. She is an avid advocate for sulfate-free products, and loves styling locs, twists, blowouts and curls. She enjoys styling for photo-shoots, and has worked on many fashion and hair shows. She has worked with celebrities such as Vanessa Simmons and Project Runway finalist Korto Momolu.
Through her love of hair, fashion and creativity, Shanita’s passion is to encourage her clients to embrace "yourself, your texture and your style", while enjoying the process along the way.
