Do you feel like you've been going round and round in circles?

We prefer to call it the “trinity” factor! Yes, there are three reasons why many beauty professionals are falling behind in their careers.

Fewer Options

You feel your efforts are not enough; nothing you do is making a major significant impact on your career as a beauty professional. Doubt starts to creep in, and you begin to question if this is even your calling.

Not Having Enough Funds

The bills are stacking up, and you’re worried if clients will walk into your store today or if you'll get that next contracted job. Your emotions are filled with doubt and anxiety, but you have to put on a composed and confident look just so that you can get through each day.

Not Having Enough Time

You feel like you're spending a lot of time and still not making any progress. You are exhausted at the end of each day, yet there isn’t any notable growth. You are short of ideas and time to market yourself or even grow your business.

These three areas of concerns can be devastating, and we understand that. Spending years in this industry has helped Monet to unravel the truth behind the enigma you feel trapped in. It usually comes down to these two factors:

Lack of Guidance

Nobody is disputing your talents or skill level as a beauty professional. Whether or not you're new in this industry, you're qualified because you are professionally trained. But you never learned how to master the business side of things; you never had anybody teach you the ins or outs of running a business. This will ultimately catch up with you, and you’ll find it difficult to organize, manage and advance your beauty career.

You’re Trying to Do This All Alone!

We know you're independent, and that is a really good thing. It may have always been your dream to establish your own business. However, independence has its downside. You see only one perspective of the whole picture – your own view. The answers may be hiding in plain sight, but you are just engrossed in your own world.


Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.

Amazon Reviews

 This is a must read!!! So many books claim to help you map out your plan and you get nowhere...not this one. It seemed like she was speaking to me and only me. As an esthetician, makeup artist, and salon/spa consultant for over 5 years, I was able to gain valuable insight into unconventional career options such as working on set or even creating my own lane merging various services and sales (not just behind the table). My favorite chapters were on branding and the internet. I was really able to assess where I was in my process and start making changes to clean up and build my brand image. I guess when you think you have explored every option, there is always more. Definitely a must read if your are looking to expand beyond your current situation or even if you are just starting out and need that support. Felt like a little gift of heaven letting me know I was on the right track. - By ADC

 As one who's always on the lookout for my next inspiration or nugget of knowledge, I found Shear Destiny to be an easy to read, relatable guide to beauty industry insight and opportunity. Regardless of how many years, one may or may not have been in this industry...this book is a great resource for all. Monet did an amazing job consolidating the many facets of the what we know as the "beauty industry" and intertwining her own experience, and knowledge, thus making this read super engaging and approachable. Thorough, concise, and to the point... I highly recommend this source be placed in all cosmetology schools. Take a risk and explore your Shear Destiny!!! - SID RAOOF, REDKEN 5TH AVE

This is a great guide for professionals...mainly for, but not limited to, the beauty industry. For example: Chapter 7 talks about developing your personal brand. Though the author talks specifically about the beauty industry, she raises very good points that would benefit anyone no matter what profession you are in. Branding isn't just for beauty professionals. I gave this book a perfect 5 stars because YOU WILL walk away with something beneficial from reading this book. It's an easy read, so much useful information, and the author speaks to you as if she's your personal cheerleader...in a world full of haters...it's encouraging to have someone cheer you on. -By Becky Sotillo

This book is truly an inspiration for anyone reading! As a newer hairstylist (about 2 years) and building clientele, this book has helped me stay inspired to grow and help me map out my future!! This is a must read!! - By Hmskittles

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

About the Author

Shades of Monet was inspired by the famous fine art impressionist and founded by a determined female entrepreneur that later evolved into a beauty platform.

Monet Colbert is now using her beauty industry career and product development experience to help take beauty beyond the chair. As a former educator for the L'Oreal brands REDKEN & Pureology, makeup artist, hair stylist, fitness competitor, model, published author, actress, wife, and mother of two, Monet packs an entrepreneurial punch to the beauty business.

Her career in the cosmetology industry has made her an expert in makeup, hair and business. Her journey up this ladder gave birth to her motivational book “Shear Destiny.” Monet believes that it's a natural part of the cosmetology industry to focus on external beauty. However, Monet shows how determination, persistence, and faith can be a testament to how beauty can really be defined from the inside out even while taking beauty beyond the chair.


A Brand that's Giving with PURPOSE not just for PROFITS

Human Sex-Trafficking

No child or woman should be sold into sex slavery! So Monet is taking her brands and partnering with organizations that fight against this atrocity.

You too can get involved

NO child is immune to this epidemic.

Building a Community

Knowing that Monet's  journey in the beauty industry wasn't easy, and while listening to similar stories from others, she felt it was simply time to build a community that genuinely gives back. As a lifestyle and business brand strategist, Monet helps thriving entrepreneurs find their way through her newly launched 'Inner Circle' group, while taking beauty beyond the chair.
