With over 30 people cast in “Love Is Blind,” you don’t really get to see every single contestant throughout each episode. Typically, a few personalities stand out above the rest and end up getting the most screen time. Shaina Hurley’s ups and downs have definitely guaranteed her one of those top roles. Hurley’s failed pursuit of Shayne Jansen, and her even messier engagement to Kyle Abrams, left viewers in a puddle of confusion (per StyleCaster). Fans are left on the edge of their seats with the last-released episode showing the couple falling apart, with Hurley leaving the retreat in Mexico as a result of their religious differences and intimacy issues.
Many fans are now wondering who Hurley really is, and what she’s like outside of the reality dating experiment. According to The Sun, Hurley is a freelance hairstylist, and her work can be found on her professional Instagram. According to a post from 2019, Hurley has actually worked on “New Girl” star Zooey Deschanel, and shared a few of the looks she’s created for the star. The caption on the image reads, “So grateful to have been working with her for the third year in a row!”
When she’s not doing hair, the 31-year-old seems to spend most of her time with girlfriends and traveling the world, from London to Mykonos and several places in between (via Elite Daily). When it comes to finding love, Hurley shared an Instagram post stating, “I appreciate honesty in all things, especially dating. Just tell the truth.”
