Shekinah Jo Anderson, is a professional hair stylist and reality television personality. With just a few years of professional experience, Shekinah has already struck celebrity status and is a rising star in the Beauty & Entertainment Industry. The Atlanta native realized her passion for styling, at the age of 12 when she spent most of her time braiding hair for friends and family. Through high school she developed her styling craft and later received a Certificate from Platinum Hair Salon.

It was at Empire that Shekinah learned to master advanced and contemporary techniques in cosmetology. While she struggled with jealous classmates, Shekinah remained focus and prevailed. Two short weeks before graduation Anderson was introduced to another Atlanta native, singer-songwriter Tameka “Tiny” Harris. The two quickly developed a friendship and Shekinah became Tiny’s go to stylist in Atlanta.
