My Story

Shantel Brewer is a 25 year hair industry vet that has serviced thousands of clients throughout her career as a hairstylist. In 2012, while she pregnant with her third child, she got in contact with a virgin hair vendor and it immediately changed her life! She had purchased a few bundles for herself to be installed for her baby shower and  everyone in the salon was in awe of how the hair looked and how soft the hair was to the touch.  After being a walking billboard wearing her hair extensions, her clients started  to ask her where did she her hair from and started using them on her clients.  For the next few years with no more than $200 dollars, Shantel developed her own FREE website which showcased her virgin hair line and to have her clients book their appointments online and purchased the hair extensions. 

Today, Shantel remains a licensed hairstylist that caters to all hair all while continuing to build up her hair styling community and to focus on Layers Hair brand.
