Meet the Shear Tans Staff!


Angela Popelka

Hi, my name is Angela Popelka, it has been a long time dream of mine to own and operate my own salon. In December of 2013, my dreams started to look like a real possibility and as of April 26, 2014 the dreams became real. I have been a licensed Barber since January of 2003. I took my barbering classes at College of Hair Design in Waterloo, Iowa. A few of my favorite services to provide are men’s face shaves and men’s haircuts as well as spiral perms. I enjoy all of the people I meet through this awesome profession as well. I was raised in a small northeastern Iowa town called Oelwein. I met my husband in 2002 and moved to the Tama/ Toledo area in 2003 and have been here since. As a family we also farm and run an Ag repair shop. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, camping and driving tractor. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and serve all who choose to walk thru my salon doors.


My name is Denise. I graduated from Capri Cosmetology School in Cedar Rapids, IA and have been a hairstylists for 35 plus years, 29 of those years in Marshalltown, IA. I worked at Tropical Tan, the former business of Shear Tan for 2.5 years. What I love most about my job is the friendships I have developed from my clients and co-workers as well as the plethora of information, recipes, advice, jokes, etc. I am married, have 2 daughters and 1 granddaughter, who is the light of my life.
