Known around Austin as the "curly hair guru", Ethan Shaw specializes in working with the natural textures and tendencies of each individual's hair. Known for his abilities with curly hair, he works with every client (no matter the hair type) to develop a unique plan to make sure hair is healthy, easy to style and looking great! Several years ago, Ethan was sent to New York for advanced training as a hairdressing instructor. This was the height of the "flat iron era", soon after ceramic flat irons were all the rage. Ethan and his fellow pupils were told by some of the greatest hairdressers in the world that the current state of hairdressing was a disaster, with everyone trying to pretend that every woman had silk-straight hair, and terribly damaging it in the process. "The art of hairdressing--working with one's natural hair textures--had been lost," they said. Ethan took that to heart, and set out to master the art of working with the natural beauty inherent in every woman's hair. After years of experience, education with some of the top names in hairdressing, and lots of trial and error, Ethan has developed his own unique system of approaching hairdressing. He feels that the keys to beautiful hair are the health of the hair and working with its natural tendencies. He believes many women over-complicate their daily hair routine, when they could spend a minimal amount of time on their hair and have it come out better! Ethan teaches every client in his chair how to approach her hair in a simple, effective way, achieving beautiful results easily. He is now happy to have many happy beautiful clients trusting him with their hair!
