Rising Stars: Meet Shakura Miller

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shakura Miller.

Hi Shakura, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
About 10 years ago, I started working for a large beauty retailer. That’s where I found my love for brows. During that time, the super snatched brow was hot (lol). Showing clients how to fill in and shape their brows with makeup quickly became my “thing”. In 2015, I agreed to accompany a friend to a threading class. Five years later, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and put those skills to use. My boyfriend, family, and friends have been extremely encouraging. In just two years, I’ve grown so much.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I wouldn’t say it was necessarily easy but it wasn’t extremely difficult. It’s really all about your drive and discipline. You really have to hold yourself accountable. For me, I talked about it for months and still kept pushing my start date back because I felt like I wasn’t ready. After the second or third new start date, I told myself it’s either now or don’t ever speak of it again. I literally started with 0 clients and no pictures of any of my previous work. I used my family as models and started promoting myself on social media. It was terrifying at first because you don’t know how people are going to respond. It was a slow trickle for the first month but the second month my schedule was booked! I was so shocked. Thinking back to my first day with my first client to now, I’m so grateful that I took the leap, terrified and all. I have the most beautiful clients, students and supporters-some who I’ve never met but are constantly sharing my work and giving me positive feedback.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in all brows. I started with Threading and Tinting but have expanded into treatments, lamination, and permanent makeup. What sets me apart is the understanding that I’m not just here to do brows. I’m going to create a brow plan with you, so we can achieve the best brows for you. Eyebrows are not a one size fits all! I love when I hear my clients say, “wow, my brows have come so far!” or “I had no idea my brows could look like this!”. Those moments make me the proudest. As of now, I’m currently working on expanding my services and something special that I’ll be sharing towards the end of the year. Follow me to stay updated.

Pricing:

  • Brow Threading $20
  • Brow Threading and Tint $35
  • Brow Lamination $70
  • Brow Henna $55
