About Stephanie

Stephanie not only has a passion to create a unique vision for each of her guests’ aspiring looks, she also believes that a visit to your hairstylist should be about more than just an updated look- it should be an experience to look forward to.

Stephanie began working in the hair industry at age 17, and graduated as a stylist in 2007. Today she has over 11 years of experience, all of which has been spent continuously seeking out new knowledge from various training programs and receiving several certifications. Some of her achievements include becoming balayage certified by The Business of Balayage (2016), receiving her certification in Keratin Complex Keratin Treatments by Coppola (2010), completing various cutting and styling courses at the AVEDA Advanced Academy in NYC, and being quoted in Northern Virginia Magazine (2018 issue) to name a few. 

Additionally, Stephanie passed the exam to become an American Board Certified Colorist (2013), and in 2014 and again in 2015, she had the incredible opportunity to work backstage on the models’ hair with a team of incredible stylists at New York Fashion Week. 

“When my clients visit me for a service, I want them to feel as though the stress of their busy NOVA lifestyle is another world away. 

“A hair appointment should be about more than just a transformation of the hair, it should be something in your calander that you’re counting down the days until; looking forward to the processing time that you get to spend daydreaming and allowing your brain to stop working for a minute, or the scalp massage at the shampoo bowl that almost puts you to sleep-or maybe you do fall asleep-

what’s better than a little nap and then waking up to a brand new you?”

-Stephanie Shadid

Day of my first appointment with her I was so nervous but she made me feel comfortable and confident about the process she would be doing. Each session I’ve had I’ve gone lighter without damaging the integrity of my hair. She is beyond talented and explains the process so well before starting which puts me at ease. I get sooo many compliments on my hair and it’s all thanks to her and her advice on how to maintain my hair between sessions. THANK YOU!”

I could not have asked for a better hair stylist than Stephanie! Not only was she absolutely amazing (best stylist I have ever had) with my hair, she was so sweet and I had a blast talking to her. After I told her what I wanted (I pretty much had black hair and wanted to go bronde) she gave me a price estimate and then before every step made sure I consented to what she was doing. She was EXTREMELY informative and made me feel so safe and comfortable. After being there for almost 5 hours my total came out to about $300 for a balayage, cut, and blow dry. For me that was extremely reasonable since I was at the salon forever and my overall look was amazing. I couldn’t be happier and I highly highly highly recommend seeing Stephanie if you’re looking at going lighter. Her Instagram is @loveyourhair88. Thank you Stephanie! You’re the best ever.

I have seen Stephanie the past 2 times I have gone and she is just outstanding. I commute an hour and a half just to get my hair done by her and it’s so worth it! She is super sweet and really listens to the goals you have in mind for your hair. Every time I walk out of the salon I feel like a brand new person! Price is definitely fair for what you are getting.

I booked an appointment with Stephanie for a partial balayage, and am so glad I did. My goal is an ashy blonde color (I’m naturally a brunette), and Stephanie did an amazing job.  She took her time to explain taking brown to blonde is a process, to set the correct expectations. I love the color and continue to get compliments.
