An Atlanta native, Shanitra “Shan*tastic” began her career styling hair for her family and friends while she was still in high school.  Upon graduating, Shanitra ventured into several fields of work but she never completely lost her desire and passion for the craft of hairstyling.

In fall of 2008, Shanitra enrolled in Pro Way Hair School in Stone Mountain, Georgia.  She was featured in a commercial for the school as well as regarded as one of the top stylist in her class.  Now with her license secured and four years of professional experience under her belt, Shan*tastic has a “pudding star” in the industry.  Shanitra is a Multicutural Hair Extension Specialist specializing in all types of hair extensions and weave closures.  She also does makeup applications, brow threading and arching, hair coloring and hair maintenance, and product development with a local product company.

To stay on top of “what’s what” in the industry, she attends various trade shows, continued education trainings, and seeks guidance from her mentors within the industry.  Her favorite quote is “I don’t work, I play.”
