Thank you for checking out my site. For those who don't know me, I'm Shannon. I began working as a Stylist in 2001. I was 18 years old, fresh out of school. I worked at a salon for 9 years with a group of woman that had been in the business for a long time. Some of them 20 + years. I was lucky to learn so much so quickly. I went on my own and opened a salon at my house in North Collins. I was in business for 6 years. My family decided to move to Blasdell and I took a job at a salon in Orchard Park. Orchard Park was great but with the space I had in my new house, I got the itch to be back on my own. It was the best move I have ever made! My dream has always been to open a salon where I could employ all my friends that are all leaving a huge mark on this business. I have 2 kids and I'm walking this fine line of being an awesome mom and a successful stylist. So, at this point in my life, an at home salon is where it's at. My favorite part of this career is learning. The hair industry is ever changing and its so exciting. The more knowledge I can gain the more I can offer my guests.
So, remember I said " My dream is to open a salon where could employ all my friends...."
I DID IT!!!!!
Today is Aug 1st, 2018 and I am officially in my new space. I am beyond excited to branch out in this industry. I look forward to having a team of talented stylists to make this dream a success. We are going to do amazing things. I want to thank my Husband, Phil for all the love and support. He has been through it all right by my side. I could not have done it with out him. From the floor to the ceiling, he did it all. I love you! I want to thank my kids. They were here everyday at the salon while we worked. It was not much fun but I will make it up to them. I love hearing them say that they are proud of me. I also want to thank my parents for all of their support. This also would not have happened with out their help. I want to thank my Mentor, Jason Clemons. Jason, has been my Paul Mitchell Educator and friend for many years. I call him my "On-call Doctor" because anytime I call him he is there. I look up to him immensely. Thank you to all my friends that have been there to show support. I have cried on a lot of shoulders. I am thankful to have each and every one of you. Your encouragement helped pull me through the worry and doubt that I had. Last but certainly not least, I thank my amazing clients. A lot of you have been with me since the beginning, You've followed me 4 times in the last 17 years. I am so grateful to have such a loyal following. I promise to always be the best I can be. Thank You, Thank You!!!
