“Owning Shear Image Salon for the past 30 years has been one of my greatest joys. With over three decades in the hair industry, I am a trained Colour Specialist and DevaCurl Professional. Every day, I strive to learn from my clients and my surroundings, always aiming to be the best I can be. Life is a journey, and there is always room to grow and learn.

Connecting with my clients and helping them feel beautiful and confident has been—and continues to be—the love of my life. I am passionate about all hair types and textures and am confident I can give you the cut and color that will make you feel your best.”

In 2023, Deanine had the honor of winning the Diamond Best Hairstylist/Barber and Colour Tech titles in the Grimsby Lincoln News Reader’s Choice Awards.

“Helping clients embrace and love their natural hair texture is one of my favorite things. Seeing their confidence grow when they have a haircut that works and when they learn techniques to style their own curls brings me so much joy.”

A self-proclaimed “product junkie,” Elisa has a passion for hair products and finding the best ones for your hair texture. Her expertise shines when working with natural curly hair, backed by extensive education in curly hair-cutting techniques. 

Starting her journey as a teen at the salon, Elisa has grown to become a manager at Shear Image. She earned her B.F.A. in graphic design from the University of Tulsa in May 2020, and she is set to graduate from the Niagara College Hairstyling program in July 2023. Elisa’s exceptional skills and commitment to her clients have earned her the prestigious title of 2023’s Diamond “Best in the West” Hairstylist, an honor bestowed upon her by the readers of New’s Now Niagara.

Junior stylist Ala, originally from Poland immigrated to Canada in 2019. She graduated from Niagara College’s hairstyling and barbering program in August 2023 and completed a makeup course in April of the same year. Her expertise extends to bridal hair and makeup, where she brings out the radiance in brides. Ala’s creative makeup artistry shines, and her warm demeanor is a hit with kids. Starting her journey with Shear Image in September 2023, she also indulges her passion for skiing and the great outdoors, perfectly complementing her adventurous spirit. Ala is currently available for makeup and hairstyling services.

Sierra completed her hairstyling program at Niagara College in April 2024 and joined Shear Image Salon in November 2023. She especially enjoys updos, event styles, curls, and color services, bringing creativity and skill to every client. Under the guidance of our stylist Elisa, Sierra is excited to enhance her expertise in curly haircuts and looks forward to helping clients embrace their natural curls.

Outside the salon, Sierra leads an adventurous and vibrant life. She loves immersing herself in books, exploring new destinations, and seeking thrills through zip-lining. An avid animal lover, she finds joy and inspiration in her furry friends, bringing that same passion and warmth to her work in the salon.
