Celebrity Stylist


Tasheara Neshell

Tasheara Neshell started doing hair as a hobby on the south side of Chicago and has become one of the most sought after celebrity stylists in the industry. She’s worked with A-list beauties including Jennifer Hudson, Keke Palmer, Viola Davis and many more.

BIG BREAK: “After working as a hairstylist for Paramount Pictures, the self-taught stylist received her cosmetology license from Pivot Point Academy. After getting formal training, she gained more and more celebrity clients. “I was working around A-list celebrities all the time, but I didn’t do a lot of networking, says the mane pro. “My work kind of spoke for me.”

BIG STAR BEAUTY: “[Working with celebrities] is definitely a challenge, but it pushes me as a hairstylist to be better and to play close attention to my work.” While she loves all her clients, she admits she’s a bit biased to Jennifer Hudson. “ She was the person who believed in me and trusted me, before I [even] had training,” says Neshell.

NATURALLY FIERCE: When Neshell isn’t on the road with star clientele, you can find her designing Natural styles at Chicago’s Huetiful Salon. “What I love about the Natural hair community is that they embrace beauty by wearing their own hair,” she says. “I love the courage and beauty by wearing their own hair,” she says. “I love the courage and the bravery of a woman who is willing to rock her own hair.”

“She has a beautiful head of hair,” says the coif connoisseur about her client, The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star Porsha Williams.”
