Xpectations Salon  


Lynn- Stylist
Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to help others. I have been a licensed Massage Therapist since 2000, I have helped many people with pain relief. I wanted to broaden my career with helping others and decided to go to cosmetology school. I graduated in March 2009 from Kenneth Schuler Cosmetology School and have loved doing hair ever since. The best thing I love about my job is the wonderful people that I get to meet. I make people feel great about themselves and make them feel happy about their hair everyday. I love working at Shear Xpectations. I work with my two sisters(Artana and Jill), my brother-n-law(Patrick) and the best coworkers that anyone can ask for. If you haven't been to our salon, please come by and see us. Thank you for reading my story, I hope to see you soon. -Lynn

Beka-Customer Service Coordinator
Hi! My name is Rebecca but most friends call me Beka or Bex. I started working at Shear Xpectations in April 2013 but you may recognize me from Beaches Tanning Club, where I have worked since October 2011. I moved to Columbia from Augusta, GA in 2011 when my cousin, Artana, offered me a job at Beaches, and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made! I have always been interested in the beauty industry and I love working with a group of such amazing, smart and beautiful women. Some of which are my family and best friends. In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my sweet husband, Logan, and our three dogs. I hope to see y'all soon at Shear X and Beaches!

Chelsea -Stylist

My name is Jill; in 2002 I received my cosmetology license at the Academy of Cosmetology located in Charleston, South Carolina. My area of expertise consists of cutting, coloring, and styling hair. I specialize in a range of different designer cuts for women and men. Cutting techniques I use for women include long or short layers, a-line, stacked or angled bobs, and many other designer cuts. For men’s cuts I can create texture or depth for long and short hair as well as craft other requested styles. When I color hair, different color combinations may be used with foils to create the desired look based on the request or my recommendations. Hair and fashion has always interested me and been a part of my life. I love the fact that I can wake up every morning and make people feel better about themselves and their hair. I thrive on making someone’s vision a reality when they come in with an idea about their hair.-jill

Ever since childhood I have been enthralled with the cosmetology industry . I have been cutting and coloring my own hair since I was 15. Soon after my friends and family followed. I have had advanced training in New York, Minneapolis and Orlando. I wouldn't dream of doing anything else.  Come visit me at Shear X :)
