Born and raised in Austin, TX, Shelby knew early on she wanted to share her artistic abilities with the cosmetology world. Her passion began to thrive from her first job as a salon receptionist. After high school, she went to cosmetology school at Avenue Five Institute, where she was trained in Sasson cutting and advanced color. There she learned she enjoyed all aspects of color-such as balayage, blondes and highlights- and delveloped her skill for cutting. She regularly participated in events like Austin Art Bra and UT fashion show.  Constantly being inspired by new techniques and trends is what keeps her motivation high. Shelby is excited to be apart of the Jose Luis Brand and hopes she can share her passion with her clients.
