Shelbey is the creator and owner of Boja Hair in Pittsburgh’s Strip District.
Shelbey has been styling my hair for nearly ten years. In that time, she has taught me so much about how to care for my hair to ensure maximum health. Not only is she a lovely person and an excellent conversationalist, but she also spends each session working to provide me with a cut that works for my lifestyle. When I tell her that I want a "Zooey Deschenel meets Alanis Morisette" look, she knows how to execute the style so that it is flattering for my hair texture and face shape. It is evident that Shelbey is an expert in her field, as she continually seeks out professional development opportunities. Even more, she genuinely cares about her customers and works to create a positive space. Her new salon offers such a relaxing and modern vibe. My sessions with her are always so restorative and refreshing. Although the very best reason why I choose Shelbey is that when I leave, my hair looks incredible and styles beautifully.
This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had when getting my hair cut—numerous times before it felt rushed when discussing what I would like done with my hair and often I wouldn’t completely like the outcome. Shelbey really wanted to understand what I meant and it was easy to talk with her about what I liked, disliked, how I took care of my hair, etc. I’m definitely coming back and making it a point to be a regular with her.
It was such a comfortable setting in Shelbey’s studio. Her coffee was amazing, my balayage is amazing...and to top off the whole experience, the warm towels and shampoo were Aaaamazing!!! Highly recommend!! 🙌💗
