Shear Black takes pride in customer service, allowing each guest to feel right at home. Hair integrity is important, and only the best products are used and paired with styles that maintain hair health. Private appointments are a staple at Shear Black, guests have set appointment times and generally private sessions with Ciara, so she can give their hair all the attention it needs.




Because she cares about the integrity of your hair first and foremost, Ciara chooses to use only plant derived and/or organic products during your services with her. Eliminating harsh chemicals, additives and sulfates helps to keep your CROWN  healthy from root to end. After visiting, guests can expect their hair to be soft to the touch, provide a shine on its own, and be nothing short of BEAUTIFUL.
