Social Media Marketing. Copy Editing. Beauty Artistry. Dance & Choreography. If you mention anything among these worlds, Shea probably can give you a random fact about it. A native of Harlem, NYC, Shea Zephir has always experienced life in multi-dimensional realms. She was that kid in the church choir, on the school newspaper, Co-Captain of the cheer-leading team, in the pre-professional dance company and still managed to have extra energy left to dream some more and journal. Shea Zephir began her career in dance at the Harlem School of the Arts where she studied various styles from Ballet to West African.
Her commitment and skill allowed her to perform notable works from Kim Grier, Robin Williams, Keith Lewis, and other acclaimed instructors all across renowned stages throughout NYC. It is that exposure within the dance community that sparked her many other interest in the creative scope such as writing and beauty artistry. In 2006 after graduating from the Makeup Designery School in Soho, she began her makeup company “Zephir Artistry” for the everyday woman looking to glam up her beauty regime for various occasions. Shea Zephir is also a graduate of the Art Institute of Philadelphia where she earned her B.A. in Fashion and Marketing.
