Our modern, spacious facility and friendly, courteous and well-trained staff make us uniquely suited to accommodate all of your beauty needs.
THE FRENCH METHOD
We are widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost authorities in the French cutting, colouring and styling techniques. Owner Candy Shaw Americanized these revolutionary techniques and has instructed tens of thousands of hairdressers worldwide in their use. The French cutting technique focuses on soft, sexy, versatile, feminine looks. The client often stands for a portion of the cut so the hairdresser can properly frame their face - like an artist would a canvas. French finishing incorporates a round brush and blowdryer nozzle to create unparalleled shine. Using French hair colouring methods, such as Balayage, we artfully paint highlights directly onto the hair to achieve beautiful, natural-looking, sun-kissed results.
Owner Candy Shaw, the daughter of former world-champion stylist Jamison Shaw, is widely recognized as the world’s foremost expert in balayage (the French term for “sweeping”) highlighting. Candy developed her own state-of-the-art balayage lightener and education-based product line, SUNLIGHTS® Balayage, to provide stylists world-wide with everything they need to learn and do balayage. For a schedule of educational events and more information visit the official Sunlights website.
Jamison Shaw Hairdressers is also home to a twenty-year-young Advanced Training Academy specializing in the French Technique. Our classes, which often sell-out up to a year in advance, train stylists from all over the globe in our world-famous French cutting and Balayage highlighting methods. As a result of our Academy, every stylist at Jamison Shaw undergoes a rigorous, comprehensive training program to ensure that our clients receive the best service and technique available in the business.
