I am the founder of Styled by Shinae. At the beginning of my business, it was just me servicing all of my brides and we have grown into a team of hairstylists and makeup artists. 

To say hair and makeup is a passion of mine is an understatement, as a young girl, I always took the initiative to practice styles and complete makeovers on anyone I could practice on. Up until this present day, I have carried this devotion in the beauty industry. I've worked so hard at mastering my craft and upgrading my skills. It’s now time to teach the next stylist how to show up and style with confidence.

  In 2011, I graduated from the hairstyling program at Niagara College. Through the curriculum, I completed my apprenticeship and became a licensed hairstylist. I’ve worked for various companies in the beauty industry including Inn On The Twenty, White Oaks Resort and Spa, Salon Thairapy, Honor Beauty, BeYOUtiful Brides, and MAC Cosmetics. I am very grateful for all of these experiences as they have contributed to my growth as an artist. To further broaden my expertise I completed the Mario Dedivanovic's (Kim Kardashian's makeup artist) masterclass in New York City In 2016, Jen Evoys intensive 1 on 1 training in Toronto, Julia Dantas (from Glam masters) 4-day Makeup Masterclass, Ulyana Aster's Hairstyling masterclass and continue to invest in myself. I love investing in myself so I can increase my knowledge base and offer the most up-to-date techniques. 


     Throughout my journey, there is one thing that hasn’t changed, every day I wake up I get to do something I love and am passionate about. To me, hair and makeup is an art. My attitude when working with clients is a positive one, as I am calm, creative, and passionate. I am not afraid to try new things and I welcome each client, excited to embark on this journey with you to create a look and feel that you will remember forever.
