Anna Papa

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.

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 and I have been fortunate to mentor and lead an amazing, diverse, ever changing group of stylists. It is paramount to me our values live in education, kindness, and inclusivity. Everyone is welcome.

Behind the chair, I specialize in blondes, corrective colors and Natural Beaded Rows extensions. When I’m not doing hair, you can find me training with my team, volunteering in my beloved community or spending time with my husband Anthony and our five year old Luca and shih tzu Cooper.

 

SHAE McCLONEY

Natural Hair Specialist

Hello my name is Oleshea McCloney, but you may know me as Shae. I have been married to my high school sweetheart Paul for 28 years and we have 2 beautiful kids. My hair career began at the age of 10 with my very first client, my little sister! After that, I continued to do all of my friends and family’s hair until my husband recommended I go to cosmetology school. I graduated 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.

LAURA HERNANDEZ

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 and I have never ever been so excited to work in thus industry 6 years later. I’m proud to be a part of the Tanglz Color Studio family.

I specialize in “brondes” and luscious blow outs. Yes, your girl loves her round brush!

RAINEY KNOX

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. In my free time you can catch me watching Daria or hitting the roller rink. But in between skate sessions I’ll be looking forward to seeing you at Tanglz!
