Valerie Neal of Greensboro has been styling hair professionally for over 25 years. She has been a salon owner for ten years, and in just six years of operation, she has shaped Shear Kreations into one of Greensboro’s best salons.

After graduating from James B. Dudley High School in Greensboro, Neal enrolled at North Carolina A & T State University. While there she says she realized her true passion was to style hair, and as fate would have it she enrolled at Leons Beauty School as a cosmetology student. After graduating, Neal says she found her niche and the rest is history.

“Being a cosmetologist/salon owner is an abundance of work,” says Neal. “You have to be there when no one else is and when something goes wrong it all falls on you.” She credits much of her success to the individuals and clients who have faithfully supported Shear Kreations. Randy Currence of Dudley Products and Wilbert Artis, who owns Influance Hair Care, Neal says has encouraged and advised her through difficult moments of operating her business.

Neal has a sincere passion for helping people. She volunteers and mentors other stylist. She says she is only concerned with doing what God has in store for her. She has managed and directed Shear Kreations into a place where everyone is considered to be family, including both clients and stylist.
As the northeastern side of Greensboro continues to thrive, Neal and her staff are prepared to accommodate new and existing clients. Complementing Neal are Veronica McNair, Shonda Herbin, and Sharlene Peebles. As they remain committed to providing the best service, the Shear Kreations team are constantly refreshing their skill sets with updated instruction to keep them abreast with the latest styles and trends.

Veronica McNair received her formal instruction at Dudley Cosmetology University. She says her specialty is Healthy Hair. “It doesn’t matter the cut or style, it is the healthy hair underneath that counts,” says McNair. She finds enjoyment in making her clients smile by providing them with the highest quality of service available.

After Shonda Herbin graduated from Reidsville High School in Rockingham County, she added to her accomplishments by successfully completing the cosmetology program at Leons Beauty School. She says her life and career has been impacted by several women in the Reidsville community including Evette Harden, Dawn Davis, and Sylvia Pinnix. She describes herself as someone who is reliable, appreciated, and understanding. These are qualities that any successful stylist must have and provide to their clients.

Sharlene Peebles attended Davidson County Community College in 1995. For the past 16 years she has been serving the Piedmont Triad area residents. The freedom of self employment and the wonderful group of professional stylists that she is blessed to work alongside of is what Peebles says make her job enjoyable. “I have learned that in order for me to succeed in my career, I must make it happen for myself,” she says.

Moving forward Neal and her team are positioning themselves to remain as one of the best choices for healthy hair care and styling in Greensboro. They plan to accomplish this by maintaining a close walk with God and by remaining focused on meeting the needs of their customers.
