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. 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. Once she got her 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 has a soft spot for singer/actress 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 her 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 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.”
