Lisa Harvie Hellam

Lisa is a highly acclaimed stylist and owner of SHED. As a California native, Lisa has cut hair professionally for over 20 years. Lisa received early instruction in New York City from renowned hair stylist Dallas Amos and learned the Vidal Sassoon technique. From there she went on to study at Bumble and Bumble, where she mastered in razor cutting and styling. She seized the opportunity to assist at Italian Vogue Magazine photo shoots performing creative styling on set.  

After returning to California, Lisa went back to professional development studying at Vidal Sasson in Santa Monica. She also continued to refine her skills learning hair coloring techniques from Wella, Original Mineral, and Goldwell. Lisa furthered her education once again at the Eva Srivo Academy taking classes in the Art of Balayage. Lisa continues her creative training to this day, always refining, and refreshing her technique from the best and brightest in the field. Lisa established SHED in 2006. Her passion for design, desire to work with her hands, and entrepreneurial drive has kept Lisa engaged with her business. She is always looking to the future, seeking inspiration, and continuing to craft a better experience for her clients. 


I’ve been a client of Lisa Harvie Hellam, the owner of SHED, for several years now and find it a total gem in the Bay Area. I have the utmost respect for her quality of service and expertise with color, style and cut. Therefore, what more can you ask for! The salon is elegantly designed and exudes attention to detail. This is also how I feel about my hair, that she has thought about it and takes care to make it work for me and my profession. I would highly recommend the salon to anyone looking for a great look from a total professional.

Edwin Alfredo Ramirez

Edwin is an experienced stylist, having cut hair professionally for over 12 years. Edwin is known for his welcoming personality. He loves working with clients to evolve their look and believes in the transformative effect of hair. A new cut can bring someone’s whole look together and provide a sense of empowerment. Edwin is fueled by fashion's ever-changing looks, hairstyle trends, and new techniques, keeping him happily behind the chair.


SHED is one of the loveliest salons I’ve been in: understated, calming, not a lot of people, beautiful light filtering in… just a quieting, relaxing experience being in there without being ‘over the top’ in a self-conscious way. I’ve followed Edwin to the shed over the past year and have really enjoyed it.

Kelly Tartaglino

Kelly has been in the haircutting industry for over 17 years and continues to refine her work through training. Her initial inspiration is derived from the classic yet timeless styles of Vidal Sassoon and over time she has been inspired by Bumble & Bumble, Goldwell, Kevin Murphy and other industry behemoths. Although she has the ability to give haircuts and color services that reflect the trends, ultimately her passion is to listen and customize hair for her clients’ individual needs.


Kelly Tartaglino is fantastic. Very careful, very detail-oriented, very intuitive. She’s got a fantastic sense for style but is also able to understand a client’s needs (by asking questions about what the daily routine looks like and how much time a client is willing to spend on styling). I have always had a really hard time managing my hair and have always been self-conscious about it. Recently someone told me that my hair always looks pulled together and well-styled; that’s all Kelly and her careful cuts and precise color.

Jessica Rush

Jessica has been in the hair industry for over 10 years. Constantly challenging herself, she trained in Tony & Guy haircuts along with additional Vidal Sassoon training and Goldwell color. Jessica recently decided to add a new color line to her belt, Alfaparf, so she can continue to grow in her industry taking new classes and making sure her clients have flawless hair. Jessica is persistently inspired to keep up to date with fashion, techniques, and color. With Jessica's perfectionism and strong passion for hair, she happily gives her clients exactly what they need. 
 

I travel a lot for business and everywhere I go I get compliments on my hair. I wish I could take the credit, but it’s all Jessica. My cut is perfect - easy to style, grows out beautifully, and my two-toned color is flawless every single time. I have followed Jessica for years and I’m so thrilled she’s now at Shed. It’s a beautiful space with a great vibe. I always enjoy my experience there and I always walk out feeling beautiful. I couldn’t recommend Jessica more highly.
