Shana Dyer, a native of Nashville, has always known she wanted to make people feel beautiful. She has
been licensed in Cosmetology for over 16 years and has a passion for creating confidence in her clients
from the outside in. If you LOOK good, you will FEEL good!
When she and her best friend, Eva Marie, opened Harlow, they knew they wanted it to be different than
any other salon in Nashville. Shana knew her dreams of owning a salon had come true the first day Harlow
was open for business. Pampering the client is what Shana is all about, and each day she comes to work
with a smile. She enjoys offering her clients a flexible schedule by working late nights and weekends to
ensure everyone is happy.
Shana specializes in color, cutting, makeup and upstyles. Some of her favorite creative works in the salon
are bridal parties and styling for photo and video shoots.
Shana has also won "Best Stylist" in the Nashville Scene's "Best Of" contest for two years in a row.
Eva Marie has been a hairstylist for over 19 years. She began her career in her hometown of Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, where she was trained in the hair industry.
Now living in Nashville for the last 16 years she has furthered her career and education to become a
prominent salon owner on Nashville's Historic Music Row along with Harlow's co-owner, Shana. Eva
specializes in bringing today's latest fashions in hair trends to her clients in a way that they can take home
with them and duplicate for themselves every day. Listening to her clients needs and lifestyles and
incorporating a look for them personally -- customizing their color and haircut or even extensions -- are just
a few of Eva Marie's talents.
She has just received her Regional Education Certification in Babe Hair extensions and is the head
extension specialist at Harlow. Eva enjoys working with clients in the salon and talents all over Nashville,
whether it's just a trim, or hair and makeup on location for an upcoming video shoot!
"Find a passion...something you love to do for a living and you'll never have to work another day in your life."
Eva and Shana met at a large salon and day spa in 1999 and worked closely providing hair and
makeup services to people all over the Nashville area. In 2007 they decided to put their creative
works together to be able to offer their clients the best that the hair industry has to offer.
Having over 33 years of combined experience in the beauty world, these two knew they could
create an amazing atmosphere for their clients, and stylists, as well. Their vision, Harlow, is an
upscale salon on Music Row with some of the most talented hair artists in Nashville.
Harlow is an Old-Hollywood themed salon that offers an array of music including soothing
sounds from the 30's and 40's, soft lighting, wine, cappuccino and scalp massages. Shana and
Eva knew their dream had become a reality when they opened one of the most unique salons in
