Las Vegas Black Image Magazine is pleased to announce that hair stylist Shyra Green has won the Las Vegas Black Image Magazine Online Hair Show. In what proved to be a wonderful promotion, Black Image conducted the online hair show in association with Hollywood Hair & Beauty Supply.

Model Tee J' Aware, showcases the winning hairstyle that received more than 800 online votes.

Competing against 23 other stylists, Green won the contest with a total of 811 votes from visitors to “I was so excited when I was told that I was the winner of the Las Vegas Black Image Magazine Online Hair Show,” said Green. “I couldn’t believe I had so many votes — it was overwhelming. No one had ever heard about an online hair show before, and initially I had to explain it to my friends and family — but they really thought it was a fun way to experience a hair show. Then word-of-mouth spread, and I got the most votes to win the contest. Hollywood Hair & Beauty first told me about the contest, and I am thrilled to be the winner and featured in Las Vegas Black Image Magazine.”
A native of Moreno Valley, Calif., Green has earned a reputation in Nevada as a natural hair specialist. “People know me as a hair stylist who works with my client’s natural hair rather than working with a lot of chemicals,” she said. “I want to make sure that my client’s natural hair is healthy. I do weaves as well, but I don’t use glue in the braids. I want to make sure my client’s hair is healthy and strong when I take the braids out. I am a certified sister lock consultant — I do a lot of sister locks.”
Green adds, with a laugh: “I realize that this is not for everyone, and some people haven’t gotten off the ‘creamy crack’ — relaxers.”
A single mother of two girls, Green acknowledges that she sometimes works seven days a week. “I seldom get time off, because I love what I do,” she said. “On my off time I like to listen to jazz and go to happy hour at a local restaurant or spend time with my girls. I really take pride in my work, and I am really big on healthy hair. I want my clients’ hair to not only look good, but to be healthy.”
To that end, Green shared a hair-care tip for those coping with Las Vegas’ dry weather. “People believe that no-lye relaxers are better for your hair,” she said. “On the contrary, no-lye relaxers have an ingredient called calcium hydroxide and the calcium hardens and dries the hair out. I suggest first that if you are using any chemicals on your hair, do not administer it yourself. Have a professional stylist apply it. But if you have to do it on your own, don’t use no-lye relaxers.” 
Committed to her craft, Green speaks passionately about the art of hair. “I love to make people feel better about themselves and to lift up their confidence with a great hairstyle,” she said. “It makes me feel so good to get that call a couple of days after I do a client’s hair and they say, ‘I just love my hair — I am getting so many compliments.’ That makes my job so worth it.”
Aynee Workneh, owner of Hollywood Hair & Beauty Supply, wanted “to thank Las Vegas Black Image Magazine for partnering with my business for this contest. People are still coming into the store to ask about it. We made history by doing the first online hair show and I look forward to doing it again with Las Vegas Black Image Magazine.”
