Our mission is to never exclude someone due to hair texture, hair length, or race. Our hair stylists want to help you look amazingly beautiful on the outside because we are all amazing and beautiful on the inside.

Shag Noir is in the heart of downtown historic East Austin. All textures are welcome in our studio, from custom haircuts to dimensional balayage and non-toxic hair care! This Austin hair salon focuses on recycling and minimal plastic usage.

Because of our love for small business, we have partnered and affiliated with the best non-toxic brands in the industry. Stop in to indulge in emotion-enhancing scents by Reverie, Cult + King, Hairstory, Afterworld Organics, and HuiHui Essentials. Minnie Little opened Shag Noir in March 2022 to expand industry techniques, business knowledge, education, exemplary customer service, and neighborly networking.

We look forward to exploring the salon industry endlessly, not just with combs and color but also connecting like minds in the community to create personal and financial freedom and journeying the road to self-fulfillment through our careers.

Thanks for dropping in, and we hope to share space with you behind the chair!

Minnie Little is the sole owner of Shag Noir, which makes it a Black Owned Hair Salon. She is a black hair stylist that can handle any ethnicity, texture, or length. Also, an Austin Native, a 2011 graduate of Avenue Five Institute of Austin, where she licensed her already trained passion for the “crown” and makeup artistry. Plus, she is the student of April Kearney, owner, and Trichologist of Blling Salon in Pflugerville, TX.

From the moment she steps into the salon, Minnie is motivated by the art and skill that goes into creating effortless looks for her clients. With a goal in mind of not having to constantly reach for hot tools to style your crown. She is extremely passionate about continued education, learning, and educating her clients and staff. Her goal is to leave people not only feeling beautiful but empowered! On her days off from the salon, Minnie is a Business Coach for Destroy the Hairdresser, helping independent or commissioned stylists connect and resonate with their true desires in our salon industry, creating equitable work-life balance!

Minnie is largely known for her stunning Shag/Curly cuts and coloring, educating her clients about texture and non-toxic hair care, and her unmatched customer service! Minnie loves taking risks, laughing out loud, eliminating plastics, jammin’ out behind the chair, and connecting with all walks of life in the community, even the furry ones.

Minnie now lives in Hyde Park of Central Austin with her 7-year-old Shepard mix, Bear. Outside of the salon, you can find Minnie being a full time plant lover, visiting Seattle to be with her son, thrifting all over Austin, hanging with her huge Pittsburgh native family, or eating tacos with Bear downtown!

I'm a stylist who has been working in the industry since 2014! I am very passionate about what I can do for people's hair. My goal is to constantly adjust and change and continue to improve day by day, year by year.

I see hair transformations as a journey, always needing edits to fit your life changes and goals. I feel the best place to improve is in a relaxing and friendly environment. In a place, you feel heard and understood.

I am constantly looking at ways to improve my guest experience and give my clients the most out of their service. One way is through energy healing and meditation tools that can be included in a service. I know the time you choose to spend with me is very valuable, and I don't take being a part of your self-care ritual for granted!

All my services are genderless and gratuity-free, which means no surprise at the checkout when paying.
If you are looking for someone who shares your values in sustainability and can help take your self-care and self-expression through low-maintenance hair to the next level, I'd love to chat.

East Austin Hair Salon Makeup Artist

Talisha Kaye's Makeup Artistry

Talisha Kaye (widely known as TK) is a published Austin, Texas, Model/Makeup Artist/Nail Tech/Photographer and owner of The Glam Experience. Originally from St. Louis/Southern Illinois area, TK began her makeup artistry journey with a few top-name brands such as MAC, Stila, Hourglass, and NARS. TK eventually became a freelance makeup artist, working on her own while still employed part-time with a major cosmetics brand. After honing and perfecting her craft over the years and creating a lane for herself within the Austin, Texas, area, TK decided to challenge herself a bit more with nail artistry.

After graduating and receiving her nail tech license in the fall of 2021, she decided to revamp her image and rebrand her business. Formerly known as Makeup By Talisha Kaye, respectively, she felt it necessary to update her service menu to now offer other services that she’s very passionate about (nail artistry and photography). Now, as a solidified business owner and Celebrity-Master Makeup Artist/Nail Tech, Talisha Kaye wants all the hardworking individuals in the beauty industry to know that the sky is the limit! While she continuously finds new and innovative ways to express herself through her artistry.

TK would love for her clients to understand that a professional, luxury beauty experience is what you deserve. She humbly asks that you would welcome The Glam Experience By Talisha Kaye with open arms. I'm excited to be the first make up artist at the Shag Noir Salon.
