Since relocating to 75 Old Hope Road a little over two years ago, award-winning hairstylist Roxanne Shields continues to deliver superb hair care for all her clients. A typical Friday at Roxanne goes like this: ladies walk in, sit and relax, then chat about the day/week or month they've had with their stylist. And, roughly two hours later, they've undergone a full transformation of hair, mind, and attitude.

Shields is totally hands-on and interactive, having a hand in every head of hair that passes through the salon. She tailors the products sold at the salon to her clientele and uses products depending on clients' needs exclusively.

Shields is a firm believer in continuing education and updates her knowledge of products, trends, and developments in beauty by attending beauty school regularly. The Redken ambassador is a Vidal Sassoon alum, recently completing training at Bumble and bumble, and has myriad learning experiences with several acclaimed beauty schools, locally and internationally. “I have to keep ahead of the game,” she tells Under The Dryer (UTD).

What's her secret? It's all in those gifted hands! Plus, she uses a few on/off-brand products, and swears by the All Soft Mega line, which she says is “formulated for women of colour and [for] multiracial hair”. Under the Dryer checks in at Roxanne's.
