Shani Gailbreath

Owner / Founder

With over 10 years of experience in the beauty industry, Shani (pronounced shay-nee) found her love in working with couples getting married. Helping people feel like the best version of themselves on their wedding weekend or event day is her dream job — and she feels fortunate to be living it. 

Shani listens to her clients’ beauty vision and uses her artistry to create stunning looks. She believes skin should look clean and soft; eyes should pop with glowing warmth; and hair should be carefully crafted to look natural and ethereal. 

Because she knows the nuances of using different lights and lenses when working with subjects this informs how she executes beauty looks- always striving to make the person in her chair look natural and beautiful. 


Canvas + Coif is committed to working with people from all walks of life. They are a fully inclusive business. They celebrate all races, genders, sexualities, religions, ages, and body types.
