Sharleen McBlain

Sharleen is a Master stylist and has been in the industry for 38 years. She has extensive knowledge in both cutting and colouring and is a level 1 deva curl stylist.  She has taught hairdressing, been a Colour Educator on the La Biosthetique professional team.   Sharleen has attended International Hair Shows and Workshops.  She continues to be inspired and motivated by others in the industry and believes that keeping up her “Hair Education” is the key to her success.

Sharleen has been in business since she was 22 yrs old.  She has owned and operated Secret Hair Affair in Kelowna for the past 15 years.  The majority of Sharleen’s clients have wavy, curly or super curly hair and come from afar for the dry cutting technique she learned in 2018 from Deva Curl.  The advanced cutting techniques and tips on the curly styling method have been a huge success for all that sit in her chair.  She still loves her razor and design cuts for certain hair textures ( curly not one of them ) and is a master colourist as well as a grey reduction specialist.  Sharleen loves to create styles that are very natural and then add a flare of rebellious style when her clients permit her.   She continues to inspire and mentor others to be the best at who they are!

After many years behind the chair and having personal insights and connections with people and their personal challenges,  she is now Certified Fearless Living Life Coach.  Life is about being beautiful inside and out and confident enough to show your true colours anywhere, anytime with anyone.


  • Katie is an incredible stylist! My mum had been looking for someone who could do a beautiful precision cut since her old stylist moved, and finally the search was over! Definitely will go back again- she’s super talented 🙂


  • Katie took the time to figure out the color and cut with me, love it!

  • Terrific haircut and the salon uses excellent products. They played great music (a folk rock 70’s playlist) that allowed for conversation.  Andrina listened carefully to what I wanted and made helpful suggestions before she got started (i.e. there were no surprises!) The whole experience was fun and professional. I can’t wait to go back and would recommend to anyone seeking a new stylist!

  • Love the service with Andrina!! Super fun and does an amazing job. She helped me come up with a new style and color I just love. Would definitely recommend!

  • Thank you so much for the great haircut. I am loving it. It’s easy to wash and blow-dry and comes out looking good every time. Thanks for the suggestionto bring the length up and style it differently from what I have worn for years. It really suits me better and feels softer around the face.

  • I have very thick, naturally wavy hair that I wear long, but I was forever putting it in a ponytail to keep it off my face. Well no more. I wear my hair long everyday and it is sleek and manageable. I look much younger when my hair is straight, so at 50 it is an understatement to say I’m thrilled to have discovered such an inexpensive beauty trick. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Smoothing Treatment and Sharleen and Anna. Both are true professionals and hair artisans.

  • I usually like to keep Secret Hair Affair my own little secret; the busier Sharleen is the further in advance one has to book! If you have not yet discovered Secret Hair Affair on Ellis (down the street from Bliss Bakery and Chai Baba), then stop on in and tell Sharleen that Pam sent you!
