Shelbie Mittendorf

Shelbie Mittendorf

Cosmetology Instructor

Shelbie has been in the cosmetology industry for over three years. After graduating from Stewart School in August of 2016, she went full force into her career by starting at a full-service salon. She worked there for about a year and found that it wasn't the right place for her. Shelbie went on to specializing in Men's and Women's haircutting and styling, waxing and beard trims. While Shelbie has a huge passion for the art of cosmetology, she also found that she is passionate about the Marketing industry. While working in the salon for the last three years, Shelbie has also worked hard to earn her Associates of Applied Science degree in Marketing. She feels strongly that no matter where our future professionals end up after they graduate- booth or suite rental, commission based or opening their own salon-business and marketing are going to play an important role in building their business. Shelbie hopes that with her background in marketing, she can encourage them to find new and creative ways to build relationships with their clients. Shelbie can't wait to grow and advance in her position here at Stewart School. More importantly, she can't wait to help the students learn and to inspire them in new and exciting ways!
