Ariel Shannon SALON OWNER HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST

WHAT YEAR DID YOU START DOING HAIR? 2006

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY? I started getting my hair colored professionally as a junior in college. I soon discovered that I have challenging hair and I had many disappointing hair appointments. I would go into the salon with a picture of Faith Hill's natural-looking blonde hair and come out with dark brown hair with white blonde stripes. I was baffled that a stylist could look at the photo I shared and produce something so obviously different. After many botched coloring attempts, even at high-end salons, I felt that there must be a better way. I was determined to learn to produce results for people that left them feeling like their most beautiful selves. The freedom and creativity of hairstyling and business ownership also suits me well.

 

WHAT STYLES AND HAIR TYPES DO YOU MOST ENJOY CREATING AND WORKING WITH? I love my blondes! They say that 'blondes have more fun,' and I have to add that blonding blondes is more fun!

 

WHAT IS YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL? Tony Robbins. That man is my personal hero. The level of discipline, genuine caring and passion, and thirst for knowledge that Tony embodies is a never-ending source of inspiration for me.

 

FAVORITE Bb. PRODUCT: Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: I originally went to school to be an elementary teacher (man, do I respect teachers!) and I owned and managed 41 apartments in NY and OH for several years. I have had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors for Outside Now Nature Academy and currently on the Board of Directors for Downtown SLO. I opened Bluebird Salon in 2008 and have been a proud partner with Bumble and bumble since day one.
