Sahar is the founder, creator and soul of SH Boutique Studio.

Since then her expertise has been sought after by Miss Universe, Miss Universe Canada and Miss Persian Awards. She has had several TV appearances and her work will soon be featured in print.

SH Boutique Salon was her personal vision; Sahar personally designed many of the architectural elements and solely selected all the finishes, wall papers and materials.
She hosts an annual bridal show that features hair designs, wedding gowns and hair pieces that she has created and fabricated. Her bridal hair design work is exceptional; integrating elements of the bridal gown into the up do to create a look that is completely unique, artistic and individualized.
A constant innovator, Sahar recently launched a high-quality hair extension line that has the many of the same attributes of natural hair giving the stylist a broader range of hair design options. She is also preparing to launch a fashion line. Sahar is excited about the many future possibilities.
Upon first meeting Sahar, you can’t help by be impressed by her own personal beauty and graciousness. She enters her salon with regal elegance, softly greeting each client and offering an encouraging word to the stylist caring for the guest.
Despite her diminutive size and quiet humility, she has already made a huge impact in the beauty and hair design industry. Winning international hair awards and being recognized for her expertise in Canada and abroad.
When asked what drives her to succeed she shares that as a child growing up in Iran, she saw her mother, and other women in her family and community not being appreciated or respected. As a young woman beginning to gain recognition on the international stage, she did not feel encouraged or supported. She promised herself that she would honour women and dedicate her life to helping them feel more beautiful and more confident.
Honour and integrity are values that Sahar emanates in her business. “I believe that I could make more money,” she pauses. “But I only do for my clients what they need. I want them to trust me.” Whether planning the makeup and hair design for a bride, correcting the colour of a new client, or maintaining a long-time client’s hair, Sahar is aware of their budget and develops treatments and plans that give them the best results in a price range that they have selected.
Sahar believes, “truly believes”, in the inner beauty of every woman.
“True beauty is expressed in the way a woman loves her family, cares for her community, and conducts herself in work and business.” She continues, “The perfect hair cut does not make a woman beautiful, she is already beautiful. A good hair cut may make her feel more confident and stronger; so she can express love more freely to her family, show more compassion to her community, and work from a place of strength.”
This belief in every person’s natural beauty is reflected in Sahar’s work and the culture at SH Boutique Salon.
