Who would have thought that the cold city of Anchorage, Alaska, could produce a warm and cheerful AVEDA professional ambassador? Yes AVEDA ambassador, because Shelby Yarbrough is not only absolutely in love with the hair industry but with the AVEDA brand and everything it stands for. Shelby is the kind of stylist that is aware of all the different trends in the industry, and will not allow herself to be stuck in a box but will talk guests through a hairstyle – not just the cut but the maintenance for the kind of lifestyle it is best suited for; she is an excellent listener. Shelby was 16 years old when she enrolled in a cosmetology program through a local high school in Myrtle Beach, SC. A year later started an internship at an Aveda Lifestyle Salon and she has stuck with Aveda ever since. Shelby loves the art and science behind formulating the perfect hair color, while building a shape through haircutting that best compliments it! As a makeup artist, she enjoys showing clients how to accentuate their favorite features and provide them with the knowledge to recreate their favorite look! Her favorite part of this career choice is making clients feel and look beautiful! This perceptive and “hungry for knowledge” young lady, says the best part of belonging to the Joseph & Friends team is having advanced education easily accessible and being surround by individuals who are equally as passionate in this industry. Her favorite AVEDA product is Confixor, because of its workable hold, and the great shine you get from Aveda’s signature Morikue protein. When Shelby is not working she’s finding new places to hike with her rescued Border Collie, and doing Pilates.
