Owner & Executive Stylist
As far back as my memory goes, I was obsessed with hair. I taught myself to French braid in the lunch line in elementary school. In high school and college my friends let me highlight and color their hair for fun!
I attended Texas State University and graduated with my BBA in Management. My course study accidentally prepared me for my role today. After two years in corporate America, I made the leap to cosmetology school and I never looked back.
Living in Las Vegas at the time, I was fortunate to train under several incredible stylists. In the fall of 2010, Anthony and I relocated to my hometown and began to build our life here. On January 4, 2011, I began work at a salon called Tanglz Salon and Spa. By some stroke of luck, I had the opportunity to purchase the salon business in 2011. I spent the next 4 years building my personal business and in 2016, began to really create the brand you know today.
Tanglz Color Studio was born in 2016 and I have been fortunate to mentor and lead an amazing, diverse, ever changing group of stylists. It is paramount to me that our values live in education, kindness, and inclusivity. Everyone is welcome here.
In 2018, I received the Beaumont Enterprise – Readers Choice Best Hairstylist. Tanglz Color Studio was a Better Business Beareau Spark Award Finalist in 2019 and a Torch Award Winner in 2022. In 2022, I became a proud Lamar University Alumni when I completed my Master of Business Administration. Being a Cardinal Alum is among one of my proudest accomplishments.
Behind the chair, I specialize in blondes, corrective colors and customized hand tied hair extensions. When I’m not doing hair, you can find me on a beach with a book, volunteering in my beloved community or spending time with my husband Anthony, our son Luca and shih tzu Cooper.
Natural Hair Specialist
Hello! My name is Oleshea McCloney, but you may know me as Shae.
I graduated from cosmetology school in 2004 and have enjoyed doing hair ever since. My specialties include natural hair care and sew-ins with a leave out.
My time here at Tanglz Color Studio has allowed me to enhance my craft and has been an enjoyable place to work. I thank God for the opportunity to use my gifts as a blessing to my guests.
Color & Cutting Specialist
As far back as I can remember I always dreamed of being a hairstylist. I was always finding trends to try on my own hair, such as getting my hair braided or curled, playing in my mom’s makeup, and definitely play nail sets! I’ve learned so many things life has to offer and I am grateful for all my lessons in the industry. Tanglz Color Studio has been my salon home since February of 2020 and I have never ever been so excited to work in this industry 6 years later. I’m proud to be a part of the Tanglz Color Studio family.
I specialize in “brondes” and luscious blowouts. Yes, your girl loves her round brush!
Hello! My name is Andrea. I am originally from Huntington, Indiana, but moved to Texas in 2006. I am a wife to an amazing husband, and a mother to two incredible kids. My passion for doing hair goes back to as far as I can remember.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a hairstylist, however, my dreams got put on hold after high school. Life happened and I wasn’t able to pursue my love for hair until the age of 35- but, hey, it’s never too late to chase your dreams. I have been a stylist for two years now and I LOVE it.
One of the greatest and most rewarding feelings in the world to me is seeing my clients leave with a smile on their face because we achieved their hair goals. I am always up for a good challenge and always looking for new ways to learn and grow.
Hey y’all, my name is Taylor Ford! I grew up visiting a family-owned hair salon often, which first sparked my interest in doing hair.
I became a licensed hairstylist in 2022 and have been constantly learning and growing since then. When you visit me at Tanglz, there is a good chance you will see me with a Chick-fil-a sweet tea in my hand—I could literally eat there every day!
On the weekends, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and binge-watching Netflix. I love the movie Mean Girls, and “on Wednesdays, we wear pink!” I would love to have you in my chair and be the stylist to help you reach your hair goals.
Guest Experience Manager
As a History major at Lamar University, I never expected to end up at a salon, but I’m so glad I did. It’s been a really rewarding experience having the opportunity to work with such a talented team of women.
Although I enjoy investigating people of the past, what I adore most is using my skills to connect with our customers and provide a quality experience here at Tanglz Color Studio.
In my free time you might catch me crafting the perfect homemade cold brew or hand-lettering in the most Instagram-worthy planner. But in-between doodle sessions I’ll be looking forward to seeing you at Tanglz!
