After being one of the first dozen stylists certified in IBE® she found a renewed passion for her craft.

  • I’m Melissa Sharkevich and I’m proudly changing one life at a time by empowering women to be the best version of themselves. In 2004 I immersed into the beauty industry by attending the International Institute of Cosmetology located in Wethersfield, CT. I’m a huge believer in community over competition and always dreamed of opening my own salon to create a safe space for my guests and stylists. I now own two salon locations in Wethersfield and Glastonbury CT with an amazing salon family that I truly couldn’t be more proud of. Over the years I’ve seen many trend changes in the beauty industry, one thing that troubled me was clients experiencing hair loss. So, I decided to expand my knowledge by becoming a USTI Certified Hair Loss Practitioner. Understanding the patterns and reasons for hair loss helped me develop a guide for restarting hair growth which also led me to a journey of mastering various hair extension methods. The Invisible Bead Extension Method developed by Mckenzie Turley is brilliant. This method changed my clients’ daily routine and allowed for them to wear their hair in any style without anyone knowing they have hair extensions. I was delivering client satisfaction by helping their hair regrow a luscious head of hair and giving them the confidence I strived for. Over the past year I continued education with IBE® and am now Masters certified in business, color, and cutting. I’ve also taken on the role as Elite & Platform Artist with IBE® and begin my training in May where I can now help other stylists grow and achieve the same client satisfaction as I have.

  • Aloha. I am Shanel Moe from the best island ever Maui. I am the youngest child of 8. I have been married for almost 10 years. I started in the beauty industry 14 years ago doing bridal makeup and hair while attending college. I graduated with my BS in Behavioral Science. I soon after went to nail school then attended cosmetology school. I have been doing hair for just about 10 years. I taught at Paul Mitchell The School Provo for 4 years and still substitute when I can. I have always loved color. I decided almost 3 years ago to start figuring out what I wanted to focus on and specialize in. My favorites were hair extensions, lash extensions and makeup. I certified in IBE® 2 years ago. I soon after certified in many very popular methods to make sure that I was offering the best of the best to my clients as well as a community I wanted to be a part of. When it came down to it IBE® checked off everything on my list. I specialize in dimensional color and IBE® extensions only.

  • Salon Edge
  • 6006 SW 18th St
  • Boca Raton, FL 33433
  • Sheila’s career in hair artistry began in 1984. This consummate Southern California girl followed her passion for hair coloring and cutting to New York City, where she was influenced by the top hair masters from Toni & Guy, Bumble & Bumble, Loreal, Goldwell and Redken. Ultimately she opened her own salon in Connecticut, gathering a following of women willing to travel any distance to obtain gorgeous “lived in” color. Still, she sensed that women were looking for more. This is when she incorporated extensions and fell in love with the results!

    A deep desire to transform and bring to life each woman’s hair dream and an ever evolving “leveling up” of her education, Sheila landed at IBE®. While she works and lives in Boca Raton, Florida, Sheila Papillon has again amassed an adoring cult-like following with local women as well as women who travel from all over to experience her perfect mix of warmth, master artistry and a bit of magic.

  • Hi its me, Shelby-Layne! I was born and raised in Austin, TX. Fun Fact, I was also a D1 collegiate athlete for 3 years before graduating early, with honors in 2016 from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA. Ive been in the beauty industry since 2017, and started doing extensions in 2018. In early 2020 I got certified with IBE® and haven’t looked back. I believe in this method 100%; the education, support, and detail is unmatched. I am an IBE® exclusive stylist and specialize in blonding and lived in color. I am the proud owner of Layne & Co. Salon which opened in September of 2021. As a stylist and extension artist I value my relationships I build with my clients, and nothing makes me happier than helping a woman express her beauty and leave with a huge smile on her face and all the confidence in the world. I pride myself in giving a luxury extension experience that is unique and customized to each individual client. I truly have a passion for hair and love what I do, so It never feels like work to me… its a true blessing. When I am not behind the chair you can find me spending time with family and friends. My fiancé Ben and I both have a passion for fitness and love working out. We are planning our destination wedding in Mexico and will tie the knot in February of 2023. We share two dogs, Remi who is a cattle dog mix who I rescued, and recently added Tank our fluffy boy who is a chow chow.

  • I have been fortunate in my life to have a career that I love and I am passionate about. I love to create looks for my clients. Education is a huge part of growth that dictates the evolution my career. Hair cutting was my first craft that I mastered. I also served as an educator in haircutting and styling for over 10years inspired other artists. Haircutting was a foundation invaluable as I evolved into hair extensions, I then advanced my color skills empowering my craft as a whole. Giving someone something they have always desired is heartfelt feeling, which is the best part of what I do. IBE® has been an extraordinary enhancement to my career.
