Shear Passion is a multicultal salon working with all hair types and textures. There is always a dual focus on both the health and style of your hair. We offer a fabulous line of virgin hair extensions that last minimum of a year. We see your hair as an extension and expression of you. You can expect a relaxing atmosphere when you arrive. Unlike many salons your time and appointment is respected, clients rave about the ability to get in and out. No more waiting hours for an appointment, spending all day at the salon or under the dryer. For the short time you are in the salon or under the dryer getting a fabulous new color or hydrating deep condition, there are outlets at every chair for you to plug up your laptops, phones or other devices. There is also free wifi available for all clients. A lot of our clientel are working professionals who need quick and amazing service, but also to be able to work while in the chair. There is also a parking lot for everyones convienence and of course the salon is handicap accessible.

My name is Natasha Ickes Saman and I am the owner of Shear Passion. I have been in the business for over 14 years, a licensed cosmetologist for 10 and a salon owner for over 6. My focus is attaining fabulous healthy hair,  with professional and friendly service. I am always continuing my education. Therefore I am Vidal Sassoon trained and have taken numerous weaving, coloring & cutting classes; as well as a variety of other classes from Las Vegas to LA to London. I specialize in weddings, weaves, natural styles, locs and precision cuts. However I am versitile and do color, relaxers, unique braid designs, kid styles, press, flat irons, wet sets, updos and the list goes on. I have been blessed to have my work published in Munaluchi Bridal Magazine. I also partner with other stylists to continually give back to the community through free hair services for homeless women and children. I thank God to be able to share my passion.
