Meagan Herrera-Schaff
Trainee Hairstylist

On Monday, January 4, 2021, Meagan Herrera-Schaff, loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 36 after a valiant battle with Colon Cancer.

Meagan was born on February 12, 1984 in Morristown, TN to Barbara Rose and David Herrera. She spent her childhood and adolescence in St. Clair, MI and graduated from St. Clair High School in 2002. At the age of 19 Meagan moved to Los Angeles, CA where she pursued her dream career as a hair stylist in TV and film. On May 5, 2012, she married the love of her life, (Richard) Kirk Schaaf. They had their first daughter, Parker, in April 2016 and their second daughter, Dylan, in January 2018.

Meagan was an amazing, dedicated mother and wife and loved her husband and children unconditionally. She was a beautiful soul that could light up a room with an infectious smile, a quick wit, and a determination to excel at everything she put her heart into. Meagan had an amazing career working on movies including The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect 2 and Jack Reacher Never Go Back and many television shows including America's Got Talent, World of Dance and American Idol. She was nominated for multiple Emmy Awards and earned a Make-up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Award in 2016 for Pitch Perfect 2. Meagan was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer just 4 months after giving birth to her youngest daughter. A year after being diagnosed, she co-founded a company called Love Beats All. She wanted to dedicate her life and her experiences to helping others with their cancer journeys. Her hope was to change the face of cancer. 

Meagan is survived by her husband, Kirk, her two daughters, Parker and Dylan, her mother, Barbara Rose, her father, David Herrera and her sister, Caisey Herrera. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many loving friends. 

A celebration of Meagan’s life will be held at a later date.
