Shelby knew in high school that she wanted to be a colorist. With the name “diPietro Todd” scribbled on a piece of paper given to her by her childhood hair stylist, she headed to San Francisco to pursue her career. After beauty school she landed a job as an assistant in the Development program at diPietro Todd. Fiercely motivated and truly inspired, she treated her apprenticeship like the Harvard of hair. She gets her inspiration from the sun and enjoys using balayage to mimic it’s effects. She also loves to play with texture and considers herself an expert when it comes to hair smoothing treatments.
Shelby calls herself a “color geek”, constantly wanting to learn new techniques and her fun personality makes spending time in her chair an absolute pleasure.
