Meet the face behind Little Shop of Hairdos!
Founder & Owner
Shaina Meck is a California Native, born and raised. She has been thriving in the beauty industry for 10+ years now. She attended Make-Up Designory in Burbank, California straight out of high school to futher her education in beauty and special effects. After working as a Make-Up Artist 6 years, she then decided to attend the Cosmetology program at West Valley Occupational Center. Shaina is licensed in North Carolina as well as California making her a dual licensed hairstylist and make-up artist.
She was first attracted to the creativity and flexibility of the industry. Now her passion is guiding others to see the beauty in themselves! Seeing the smile on her client's face when their new look is revealed, whether it's a make-up transformation, color, or a new style, fires Shaina's passion even more. With many classes and certifications under her belt, she is a firm believer that continuing education is the key to success. To this day, Shaina continues to further her education with Pulpriot, Redken, Schwarzkopf, and Neuma. She is certified in Babe tape in extensions, Donna Bella sew in extensions, Brazilian Blowout, and Keratin Complex treatments. She is also certified with the Business of Balayage as a balayage specialist. Before moving to Raleigh, her clientele consisted of unicorn hair, balayage, highlights, and long lengths to cute edgy cuts. She loves being well rounded in each area to offer a broad spectrum for her clients.
She has worked on numerous photo shoots, special events, as well as with many other talented make-up and special effects artists, such as: Gage Munster, Marcel Banks, Jo Holland (Face-Off Season 1), Greg Lightner (Face-Off Season 2), Kris Kobzina (Face-Off Season 4), Laney Parkhurst, also known as Laney Chantal (Face-Off Season 5), and Johnny Leftwich (Face-Off Season 10). While make-up will always be her first love, hair has taken over her love for the industry. Constantly craving new information and growth when she began doing hair in 2013, she absorbed everything she could possibly learn about hair. She loves not only the business side of the industry, but she also loves connecting with her clients. Customer Service sits at the top of her values when it comes to her work, priding herself in the art of her consultation and attention to detail. Listening to clients and open communication is crucial. Shaina is a true artist. She is able to customize really any look by adding in small details like face framing to get to the desired look a client is looking for. She values each and every client and always ensures that her clients feel comfortable in their own skin and leave feeling rejuvenated, happy, and the best version of themselves that they can possibly be. She truly has created a safe space for honest feedback for all clients in the salon.
Its no secret that she loves all things spooky and Disney.
Shaina's vacations usually consist of a nice relaxing weekend in the mountains to enjoy the cool breeze with her husband. Listening to music, watching a movie, scrolling through Pinterest hair and make-up boards, or watching educational videos is what keeps her on her toes when it comes to inspiration. In her past life, she could have been a elementary school teacher with her love for children.
