Shag’d Hair Studio is closed. Here’s where you can find the stylists
After six years in business, Shag’d Hair Studio closed its doors for good last month. One of our 25 reasons to love Audubon Park, the hipster hair spot has landed in the No. 2 spot in our Best of Orlando poll a few times during its tenure. A large part of what made the studio so popular was its staff. Don’t be too sad about the loss of Shag’d, though – we know where the stellar stylists are going.
Four of Shag’d’s stylists will be moving on to a relatively new shop called Porte Noire. David Freebern, Rachel Linch, Bill Haire and Tiffany Howell will be renting chairs at the Winter Park salon. Calling itself a “salon collective,” the shop is not a traditional one-owner salon, but a group of independently owned salons housed under the same roof.
Karla Alvarado will be taking a chair at Matthew Michael’s Salon and Spa Experience, which will be moving into the former Shag’d space.
Sadly, Nico, the owner of Shag’d, will not be popping up anywhere in Orlando, as he is retiring from the hair business.
