Chief Stylist & Artistic Director
Shiela Ocampo Gomez discovered her passion for hair styling when she was just 17 where she eagerly sought a position within the prestigious traditional European David's Salon in the Philippines. She learned the ropes from the ground up, including the intricate details and subtle nuances of European hairstyling combined with Asian techniques.
Philippines Cosmopolitan magazine featured Shiela and she soon landed a TV spot on the popular TV show Good Finds.
In 2005, Azta Urban Salon eagerly snapped up Shiela where she rapidly became one of their top-grossing Senior Stylist and Senior Technical Educator.
Upon emigrating to the United States, she set her sights on being a Master Stylist in Weston, Florida. She soon began collaborating as a texture specialist for several large hair product distribution companies in South Florida.
It wasn’t long before she opened her own salon in 2009 and named it aztig urban salon, inspired by her time at Azta.
She served as the national educator at De Fabulous for Japanese and Keratin Straightening treatments, traveled to New York City, Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles, and Dallas to showcase her "Razorality" hair cutting technique. Shiela was also invited by Oprah Winfrey’s hair stylist of 25 years -Andre Walker- to promote his products in Australia as their international sales-spokesperson.
With 15 years of experience and a US-Licensed cosmetologist, Shiela's mission is to share different techniques and spread knowledge where breaking the norm and pioneering new trends is essential for today's Hair Artists.
Lead Guest Coordinator
Before joining the aztig urban salon team, Arianna sharpened her people-skills as an Administrative Assistant at a New York company until she moved here in October 2013.
She has a thirst for Guest Service and Business Management that we could not pass up and brought her on board as soon as we found her.
She is credited with helping a previous guest of hers in New York with getting placement as the personal chef to Sean "P. Diddy" Combs of Hip Hop fame.
It's little wonder her future goals entail fully managing -or even opening- a business of her own.

This intelligent woman, already set up for success, felt beckoned to join the ranks of the prestigious Aveda Institute. After mastering her advanced classes in national color brands like Redken, Fekkai, and Kenra - now she's with aztig urban salon!
During her studies, she kept her wits about when directed, on the spot, to design a dress from recycled materials and a corresponding hairstyle during Aveda's Catwalk for Water charity fashion event.
Finally, she's going to build a brand all her own - to become a household name. She plans to operate a luxury mobile salon, and train with the greatest stylists currently in the industry becoming one herself.
