Shayla Nash is a professional makeup artist who serves the Kansas City Metropolitan & surrounding areas. As a 2003 graduate of Herndon Career Institute in Kansas City, she began her training in the artistry of hairstyling as a high-school senior. Years later, makeup and the "human canvas" became her passion and propelled her to self-educate in makeup artistry.
Shayla worked hard and studiously to establish a brand of quality, perfecting hair & makeup for the entire spectrum of textures, skin types, and complexions, continuously improving her technique and increasing the value of her skills. In addition to her aesthetic, an infectious personality and the willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done is a large portion of the "why" behind the mentions of Shayla amongst the "Best in Kansas City". Shayla was a nominee for the Midwest Fashion Awards 2019 Artist of the Year and a nominee for the Kansas City People's Choice Awards 2020 Best Makeup Artist.
Some of Shayla's current and former clients include, Strange Music Records, PBS, and Hall's Department Store. Her work has been published in and seen gracing the runways of the Kansas City Fashion Scene for Kansas City Fashion Week, Local Fashion Link's Local Runway Fashion Show, and West 18th Street. Additionally, she has provided services for commercials, celebrities, local designers, musicians, and those who want to ensure that they look and feel their very best for their most important moments.
