the best! – I've been going to Shelby for years and I have never once left her without great looking hair! My hair was horrible before I started going to Shelby - dry, fine, and lifeless from years of having extensions and bad bleach jobs. I never have to worry about that again. She does an incredible job with color - she always mixes up the perfect combination for me. She also gives amazing hair cuts and blow dries! From what I've seen, she has a wide variety of clients with all different kinds of hair and they all seem very happy when they leave! Not only is she incredibly talented, she has an awesome personality that makes you actually enjoy the time you spend in her chair. I'll always be loyal to Shelby and I've recommended her to everyone I know. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
Simply the best! – I stumbled across Shelby, wasn't referred and really knew nothing about her, didn't care to know at the time. I was desperate for a good color with low lights and highlights without turning my hair platinum blonde. My last few experiences here in Vegas have been awful and overpriced for what I received. I have paid in ranges of $110 to $205 for cut and colors most of my adult life and have been at the mercy of the stylist for their knowledge. I don't like chunky color, just more natural. I have medium to long hair that has a natural wave to it and haven't changed the style in over 5 years, until yesterday. I told Shelby what I wanted based on my previous coloring experiences, and she didn't agree with me. For the first time in my entire life I found a hair stylist that knows what the heck she is doing and that sometimes the client isn't always right. It's easy for a colorist or stylist to tell you that they can achieve the color or cut that you want. Most stylists and colorists are "yes" people that will tell you that despite your current level of damage or the texture of your hair that they are the skilled ones that can do anything and that they don't "see a problem" getting your head to look like what you're asking for. It's b.s. and most everyone has walked out of salon feeling cheated in one way or another. I am a middle aged mom that needs a respectful but playful haircut and Shelby delivered. She cut my hair dry and while she was cutting I could see how my hair was laying and how much movement she was creating. It was sexy, whispy and full of texture. The color was exactly what she said it would be, natural looking blonde with some light brown low lights. I was impressed even more so that I wasn't left with the blow-dry shock of "what the hell is this?" I was ecstatic! Her prices are right in line with what you'd expect to pay if someone could actually give you exactly what you want the first time, with no corrections. You will always have to pay more for a cut and color if your hair is long and you are getting what you pay for with Shelby. She is worth every penny and then some to never have to experience that shame of overpaying for a crappy cut and then having to live with it for the next few weeks until it grows out! I scheduled my next appointment with her on the spot. Shelby may look unconventional to us middle aged traditional women but don't let the cover fool you, she is a no nonsense girls's girl and a guys girl all wrapped into one! A perfect diamond!
the absolute best! – I've been going to Shelby for years and she is fantastic. Not only is she the nicest, most attentive stylist I've ever met but she is also the most talented (trust me on that- I worked in the spa/salon industry for years). Before a job interview, a party or a big date, I always have her do a blowdry. Her blowdries give my fine hair SO much volume! You will never regret having Shelby do your hair.
Shelby - The Worst Haircolorist – I've bleached my own hair for years and decided one day to do it with blueing. I washed it out when I noticed that the blue was clinging to my hair. So my blonde hair was orange and blue. I found Shelby online and she said she was a colorist. I explained my situation, she said no problem. I had mentioned doing my hair ALL honey colored.She said she could get the darkest hair blonde without bleach. Super! So when I got there she got the blue out and then put some dark streaks in. I was waiting for her to get the orange out but she never did. Then instead of making my hair honey, she "did her own thing" and put ash on it. Now I have orange and green hair with dark zebra looking streaks in it. It cost $170.00. Even Geela, a gal that works at Tonic II said Shelby should give me my money back because my hair looks "muddy" and that it would take a couple of visits for Geela to color my hair correctly.
She fixed another salon's mistakes, and my hair looks PERFECT!!! – I went to another salon in town (the Loft), and I got horrible color not once but twice (the second was a redo). I found Shelby by searching for "corrective highlights" in Vegas and found she works up the street at Tonic II. She fixed my highlights from the other salon, and now my hair looks better than it did before I even got it colored. She knew right what to do and made me look like a normal human being! I think it takes a lot of talent to not only create great color, but to fix someone else's mistakes too. She did a GREAT JOB. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!
Editorial Review – Stylist Shelby Kelsey is proud to call Las Vegas's Tonic II Salon home where she offers the utmost in hair care ranging from unique cuts and colors to the ultimate in client-catered styles.
Shelby is a five star stylist, anything you can imagine. – When I first met Shelby I loved her style and her ambience. I was able to see her work first hand on a couple of clients she had that I was associated with. Being a former hair stylist it was very hard for me to find somebody that I could trust with my precious hair. We all have horror stories about going to a stylist and leaving with nothing close to what you had wanted. Some stylist take it upon themselves to do what they see fits best. Well you wont get that with shelby. She is attentive she,gives the best and listens to what the client's want. My hair was beyond any help, or so I thought. She formulated a color just for me and it is absolutely wonderful. She is a master. Her cutting skills are out of this world. Not only is she absolutely out of this world with her color and styling!!!!!!!! She gives the best Shampoo that I have ever had. I would follow Shelby anywhere, I have never had so many compliments on one hair style in my whole life. So wether you are looking to change your entire hair style or you would like a hair cut, blowdry, highlights, low lights, or just one of her out of this world shampoos, you are definitely at the right place. Shelby is by far one of the most talented stylist that I have ever met. The salon where Shelby is located at is awesome, everybody there enjoys there work to the fullest. It is an up beat salon that totally caters to the client. This is one stylist that you would tell all your friends to go to. She is a hair genius.I will never go to another stylist again.

The Queen of Color and Cut! – Shelby is AMAZING with color and a scissors...actually for my hair she uses EVERY (no exaggeration...seriously) cutting device she has! I always feel comfortable and confident that she will transform my head into a masterpiece...and I have never been disappointed. I TRUST HER COMPLETELY (emphasis added). I even recommended that a very good friend of mine see her for her "wedding hair." Because I know she won't be disappointed on her big day! I have no regrets or hesitation when it comes to choosing her as my stylist....I am her client till death do us part!!
A Cut Above the Rest – Without a doubt I have the world?s worst hair and it wasn't until Shelby got a hold of me that life started to take on a more rational tone. She is very patient and careful yet has a sense of flair that truly reflects the needs and expectations of her clients. The care she takes is far beyond anything I?ve ever experienced and it?s almost like she is cutting each hair individually. Shelby also takes the time to explain every step in the ?styling? process and insures that her client is satisfied with the cut and never tries to sell product over style. A great experience and in a town full of smoke and mirrors it is nice to find someone who really knows (and cares) about what they are doing.
