Tencia Salinas

Personalized Hair Solutions
By Tencia Salinas at Shear Attitude Hair Salon

Always the entrepreneur and after many years within this maturing industry, Tencia Salinas has become a leading force in the Personal Appearance industry with her unique Hair Extensions and Custom Hair Pieces for those that suffer with a variety of hair loss issues. Tencia grew up in the Santa Barbara area where she began her career in the hair styling beautician industry.

In 1990 Ms. Tencia Salinas relocated to Orange County with the idea to add a new technical aspect to her appearance services career. The standard beautician “beauty and hair styling” industry had become too competitive and she saw that there was a growing need for expertise and experience in natural looking hair replacement services. Even though “artificial” hair replacement is an ancient industry, little attempt has been made to make it look truly real and natural. Tencia searched for and found an experienced Salon that offered both natural hair replacements for both men and women, while also offering traditional beauty salon services. Under their experienced tutorage, Tencia gained extensive knowledge, experience and quite a local reputation for ingenuity, design and artistry. She learned every aspect of manufacture, repair, and attachment methods and how to market these types of services.

With the growth of this industry, Ms. Salinas found that it was a nature progression to move on to another level of learning of the business with someone that has been a cornerstone in the innovative design and manufacture of hair units for the public and the professional theatrical market. Tencia also continued to develop a wide clientele and generous reputation for quality services.

While contributing to her education and hands on experience, Tencia attended as many professional training seminars and trade shows as possible. This gave her the opportunity to learn about new techniques, styles, methods, and materials, and develop relationships with suppliers and manufacturers to this industry.

Now Tencia has brought her unique brand of styling custom hair solutions to the hub of the ‘Fashion Coast’ in the Lido District of Newport Beach at Shear Attitudes® salon.

Tencia provides leading edge services in personal appearance from her patented easy-care hair extensions to non-surgical hair restorations which include additions, weaving, partial and full hair pieces for both women and men. Services also include the custom design, creation and repair of personal hair pieces used by her clients. Tencia has an impressive history of services within this fast growing area of personal image. She launched her unique patented Hair Extension system and its attachment technique which does not require the usual cumbersome gluing, braiding, threading and/or cabling other Extension use. This Highly specialized patented custom Hair Extension was designed and developed by Tencia in 2007 and is a revolutionary design that can be applied in less than one hour with dramatic results. But Tencia is never satisfied with what’s already great and is always looking for and developing new designs and methods of creating hair replacements and extensions, and ways to make them feel even more like they are your actual hair.

Ruth Dodgson

“Do what you love, love what you do.” This is one of my favorite quotes for so many reasons. I have been working in the cosmetology industry for over eight years and I can say I have never been happier and more fulfilled. People are at the heart of what I do but I also love to offer quality hair services.

I am a native Chicagoan but I have worked around the world and in Orange County for the last few years learning new trends and techniques. My goal is to give each client personal attention and care as I get to know them and their hair!

Traveling and donating my time to non-for profit groups is what also motivates me to stay passionate about what I do and balanced as a person and stylist. I love chic looks as well as natural

My expertise is:

  • color
  • Precision haircutting
  • Updo styles.
