On the Cutting Edge: Ursula Kershaw


If you’re an African-American woman who wants to experiment with new hair styles, look no further than Ursula Kershaw. As a hair stylist and makeup artist with 14 years of experience, Ursula owns one of the most popular and renowned hair salons in North Charleston, South Carolina. What separates Shear Creations by Ursula from other hair salons? Ursula Kershaw herself.

With a dedicated focus on color, cuts, and braids for black hair, Ursula truly understands the unique care and maintenance that African-American hair needs. Not only does she know which processes, chemicals, and hair styles are harmful to scalps and hair, but Ursula also communicates her knowledge to her clients. In fact, if a client requests a style that could potentially damage her hair, Ursula takes the time to fully explain the possible harmful effects. She then helps her client find a style that’s nontoxic, simple to maintain, and – of course – fabulous.

Not into chemicals, harsh processes, or hair pieces? Ursula also specializes in working with natural hair. And according to the hairstylist extraordinaire, braids are a fantastic option for black women who prefer to keep their hair natural. Always on the cutting edge of hair, Ursula continuously learns new braiding techniques and knows how to help clients find the perfect braid style for them.

Whether you know exactly how you would like your hair to look, or have no idea what style you want, Ursula’s talented vision and precise hands will give you a style that not only suits you, but your lifestyle. But don’t just take our word for it – in addition to a long list of happy clients, Ursula and her hair styles have been featured in numerous black hair publications, such as Sophisticate’s Black Hair Style and Care Guide, Hype Hair, and Hot Hair Magazine.
