After a thriving career as a licensed Cosmetologist and Esthetician in the highly competitive DC Metro area, Shelley built an impressive clientele at salons in the Georgetown neighborhood. Clients included politicians, actresses, and CNN on-air journalists. While in DC she began to expand by participating in product design and development for a cosmetics line for Universal Esthetics, Inc.
After relocating to San Francisco, Shelley opened BellaPelle Skin Studio in San Francisco’s Union Square in 2002 which received recognition by several fashion magazines. She developed her first line of skin care products which resulted in immediate improvement and helped maintain long-lasting healthy skin. She established a diverse and loyal following of customers drawn to her understanding of the relationship between skin, health, and beauty.
Currently, Shelleyskincare.com carries her most recent product line, as well as, various beauty brands that meet her strict criteria of natural, healthy and effective skin care.
Because of her professionalism and reputation within the beauty industry, she has been asked to teach classes, offer advice and share her knowledge. Hence, 415 Spa Consulting was born.
