I have been with Jamison Shaw since ’91. I have learned a lot of fun techniques through the years including color, haircutting, and updos. I have been a part of JSAHS for over 10 years and enjoy teaching other eager hairdressers. My style is a little more edgy with a French foundation. And finishing hair is my favorite. I like teaching you to put a signature on your style after the haircut, inspiration Hollywood!
I started as a student at Jamison Shaw Hairdressers six years ago and continue to this day to come to work “as a student” because I believe every day is a learning opportunity. Known for our extensive training, I have had the opportunity to learn and build my experience with the French technique and now have the opportunity to share my education as the Director of the Jamison Shaw Hairdressers Protégé Program. The Protégé Program teaches our talented apprentices, soon to be a graduate of our training program, to polish their skills while gaining the experience of working behind the chair. I am proud to be part of Jamison Shaw Hairdressers and a mentor to our young professionals.
Hi, my name is Suzanne Szabo & I am a master and instructor stylist. I grew up in the hair business and have been doing hair for over 25 years. I have had the privilege to learn from many of the masters in our industry and I enjoy passing everything I have learned on to younger and passionate stylists. I am committed to life long learning and sharing what I have learned from others. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to train all over the world -Paris, London, Barcelona, Milan - with iconic industry leaders.
I am one of the top producing stylist and educators at Jamison Shaw Hairdressers and Jamison Shaw Advanced Hairdressing Academy, also the niece of Candy Shaw Codner. I have had very extensive training as I was raised a hairdresser through my apprenticeship program. The first hairdresser in Jamison Shaw history to produce six figures in my first year on the floor, I have taught all over the USA teaching the method of French Haircutting and French Balayage. I have worked on countless photo shoots from New York to LA. I have also worked with the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders and the Atlanta Hawks Dance Team. I am the mother of one daughter Charlee Shaw, 4, who already shows the passion of hairdressing carried on through the generations of the Shaw Family. I work in the salon five days a week and travel 10 to 15 times per year to educate for JSAHA. When people ask me if I travel for work or for pleasure I reply with the words my aunt and mentor always speak.." My work is my pleasure."
Hi my name is Adrienne Knapp and I have been an educator here at Jamison Shaw Hairdressers for about a year. I look forward to expanding my repertoire by traveling the country and by sharing my knowledge of the French technique. I fell in love with the free hand technique of balayage and enjoy showing it to others. I believe the teacher always learns more than the student and you can always continue to grow!
I have been an educator with JSH for two years and have traveled all over the country teaching others. I have a love for educating and helping create those "light bulb" moments. A very technical hairdresser, patience is my strongest virtue. I would say cutting is where my heart lies, "With the French technique all complications are taken away and what you are left with is beautiful simplicity with a perfect shape for everyone."
Hi, my name is Phat Vo & I am an associate stylist. I am Vietnamese and have a true passion for hairdressing. I love to make people feel good and look great. I am a great colorist and also great at finishing hair. I offer my clients exceptional massage shampoos and my specialty is the curly “sexy” blow-dry that can make you ready for the red carpet or any occasion. I have participated in many photo shoots with my mentor Candy Shaw Codner.
I have been teaching for the Jamison Shaw academy for 2 years. I have a passion for hair and love to connect with other hairstylists through teaching. I love to show a more " free hand and creative" side of balyage and how it can be used in so many different ways. I have seen Balayage and the French hair cutting method change people's career and I continue to be amazed at how eager to learn the students of the JHS academy are.
My name is Jay Melancon. I am an educator for the Jamison Shaw Academy. I am also a graduate apprentice. Because I received all of my education from the academy, I feel it is my responsibility to pass on my knowledge and experience. It is also an honor to educate for such a prestigious school.
I am from Los Angeles, California. I have always had a passion for teaching and the beauty industry. Starting as a successful make up artist, I rapidly adapted the French techniques. I am bilingual and enjoy meeting artists who share the same passion for hair and learning as I do.
My name is Jason Dejeu. Teaching for Jamison Shaw Hairdressers has been one of the most amazing experiences in my career thus far. Converting from British cutting and coloring to the techniques that we use here at JSH has opened my eyes to the world of French hairdressing. Seeing and feeling the beautiful results is what drives my passion to teach. My prior knowledge of British hairdressing allowed me to enter with opens eyes and various experiences in which I can communicate and help others learn from. At the end of the day we are all students because we will never stop learning and never lose our desire to succeed.
Hello, my name is Amanda and I have been an educator for JSH since January 2013. Being a part of the academy is important to me because I can directly affect the quality of life to other hairdressers. It gives me the motivation to perform at my best ability. The teacher always becomes the student and it is important to continue to educate yourself in any industry. I also educate and teach our assistants and students with in the salon. I look forward to inspire anyone willing to learn and improve their craft.
My name is Lindsey Melder. I have recently started teaching with my Jamison Shaw family. I have taught in-house classes and also traveled to Chicago to teach at the ABS hair show! Not only do I have the passion to do hair behind the chair, I also love teaching and mentoring to anyone willing to learn. One of my great mentors Candy Shaw Codner always says "the teacher learns more than the student." I truly believe in that quote and i am always learning. My desire for for French balayage and French hair cutting is just another layer to what I love about hairdressing!
