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.
