“In the block of marble I see an angel as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely angel to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it and set it free…”

--Michelangelo

Shin An is widely recognized for her transformative work with cut and color. She intimately understands the potential and possibility that exists within the scope of hair styling and works with clients to deliver their dream hair.

Whether it’s a subtle change or complete makeover, the result is ecstatic clients who love and can manage their own hair. An’s approach is more of visual artist than stylist, envisioning shapes and textures, then sculpting precise “fits” for each face, head shape and body.

It is this innate ability to identify optimal cut and color for each individual client and empower them to take risks that delivers what they never thought possible.

For this Korean-born, Wisconsin-raised native, the borderline obsession with the art of shapes helped fuel a career trajectory that would catapult Shin to the top of her field. She quickly became known for her transformative work while styling at some of New York’s premiere salons. Editors, models, actors, musicians, businessmen and women sought out Shin for her ability to cast a soft critical eye and deliver image-altering results with her signature dry cutting and color enhancement.

Shin views hair as the most important accessory one can wear. “Hair is at the very core of an individual’s self expression. The style you present to the world says volumes about how you perceive yourself or how you want to be perceived. And it can have a huge impact on your psyche,” extols An.

With over 20 years of experience, Shin has maintained a loyal clientele that spans across the US and is internationally based. In November 2011, she made the move west to open her eponymous salon, SHIN, on Los Angeles’ Westside in Santa Monica. Shin currently lives in Santa Monica with her two daughters, Luci and Noa.

I just knew I had to be here. I had a vision of my own place, near the ocean . . . and finally, here it is.

About The Salon

Located on popular Montana Avenue, the 1,160 square foot cottage-style retreat is an indoor - outdoor beauty haven. This chic bungalow has an al fresco patio space which also houses a section for massages and facials. With the help of designer Suhail, SHIN incorporated the critical elements of a luxury salon experience into an art installation that represents her personality and philosophy.

There is an obvious connection to nature and culture through the peaceful simplicity of clean, modern lines and hand carved dark blonde wooden panels or “cultural tattoos,” which add to the abstract Asian-influenced decor.

The interior walls are adorned with bright mosaics, intricate wood carvings and a red and black gradient-stained koi design, symbolizing perseverance and strength. A focal point of the

four step philip b. rejuvenating oil treatment 125

Purifying Scalp Treatment : This unique treatment does it all: eliminates frizz, thickens limp, fine hair and heals troubled scalps -- targeting dandruff and psoriasis. The process includes scientific brushing, scalp massage, rejuvenating oil with deep heat penetration, specialized “double” shampoo process and deep conditioning of the internal and external hair shaft.

youth boost scalp facial 110

Our Youth Boost Scalp Facial is specifically designed to combat the issues hair faces as time marches on and gets tired from everyday wear and tear. Years of exposure to hot blow dryers, flat and curling irons take their toll after years of exposure, not to mention hormonal changes as we age. This can result in loss of luster and coarser, thinner hair. This unique scalp and hair treatment restores hair's youthful vitality, leaving hair strengthened, smooth, shiny and revitalized.

Nano Hydration from the technology-based line, Liqwd, sends super- active ingredients to the hair's critical cortex layer for a total transformation. This deep conditioning treatment is composed with thousands of tiny nano- hydrospheres and contains color-life technology, along with Quinoa proteins that lavish each stand creating a miracle in minutes.
