Q. How did you start doing hair?
I loved doing my sisters hair as a kid, but was somewhat embarrassed that I was so interested…eventually later in life I got over that and decided to go to cosmetology school.
Q. Who has been he biggest influencer in your career?
I have several, but the top 3 are: Fredric Holzberger, Karen Wilkin-Donachie and the great Leo Passage.
Q. What keeps you inspired?
My team. Seeing the passion, creativity, and the drive they have pushes me to be a better person.
Q. What do you do when you have free time?
Free time for me means I am not traveling, so I like to sleep in my own bed, have a home-cooked meal, and go to the fitness center.

We want you to get the most out of your Hairspray experience, so please keep the following policies in mind.
• If you need to cancel an appointment, please give us at least 24 hours notice to avoid a charge.
• Please arrive a few minutes before your scheduled appointment, so that you can be seated at your stylist’s station and ready to begin at your start time.
Late arrivals will be counted as no-shows, and charged one-half the cost of their appointment.
• We recommend that guests schedule their next appointment prior to leaving the salon to assure the date and time most convenient for you.
• We welcome the patter of little feet as long as the lucky child has a scheduled appointment. We hope to see you soon.
OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
The Hairspray design team has created an accelerated training course aimed towards new talent. Just because you graduated doesn’t necessarily mean you are able to jump right in. Shawn uses an analogy to help explain this idea. He says, “You must learn to crawl before you can walk and walk before you can run”. Hairspray has set the bar high. Shawn takes his employees through a training period, in which they will learn to master the consistency in skills and culture that makes Hairspray the same wonderful experience each and every time. The Hairspray design team continues to educate themselves through advanced classes, to stay on the cutting edge.
