Nadine Pullin Shinhoster studied at Madame Cargo’s cosmetology school. She pressed and curled hair in her home for decades, as she mothered six children and worked other jobs. She was a Godly and praying woman who cared about people, not just their hair. The beauty parlor in her home was a healing space of love, laughter, tears, and one-on-one friendships where ladies gathered to be coiffed by Missionary Shinhoster.
Women came to her as much for the hospitality and soothing conversation as they did for straightened hair. Tender-headed girls filled her chair at Easter, Christmas and other special occasions for a gentle touch and Shirley Temple curls. Miss Nadine never worked with or used chemicals in her hair or her clients’, only her pressing comb and curlers. Doing hair was ministry to her. She laid edges straight without a hint of heat damage, and at the end of the day, women left with smiles on their faces and sometimes answered prayers in their hearts.
Grandma Nadine was 74 when she died in 1991.
