Candy sees anywhere from 20-30 clients every day! She works with a handful of talented assistants, however, she couldn’t do what she does without the tools to complete the job! Candy uses these tools on a daily basis to create beautiful works of art!

Her tried and true shear is the French 7” curved shear. 7 inches may sound like hedge cutting shears if you're used to the short British shears, but these shears are designed to saw hair, not snip hair.  It's also ergonomically designed to help prevent carpal tunnel since the holes are large enough to sit at the base of the fingers. Check out these shears in action! 

Nothing is more satisfying in a haircut than to see the movement come into play. Candy loves her French 42 tooth texturizing shears for this purpose. Whether she is removing bulk, or adding texture, this texturizing shear is the best! She is able to cut interior (building weight) or exterior (removing weight) just by placing the teeth on the top or the bottom.

Does anyone have those clients whose hair is so thick that no matter how much texturizing you do, it just does not seem to be enough? That is where the French chunking shears come to the rescue! Candy will use these to really add some texture and remove unnecessary bulk from haircuts. The chunking shear is able to give that razored effect, without causing the frizziness that can sometimes come with other texturizing shears. 

Candy has been asked before, what is the one tool she would take with her if she were stranded on an island. Most people are surprised by her answer: Clippers. Here at Jamison Shaw, the clippers are something that we use more than most would think and why not? They are quick, accurate and it can guarantee a straight line every time!

And that’s it! Now granted, some cases cause her to use other tools to get the job done, however, these four tools are Candy Shaw’s go-to’s. Go to our SHOP page and check the tools out yourselves and see what difference it can make behind your chair!

A Beautiful Hair Transformation from The Balay Lama

As hairdressers, it may be nerve-wracking when a color correction sits in the chair. (Kudos to those who thrive on this!) The best advice on how to approach a color correction is… BREATHE! A lot of times, overthinking is the problem, and tendencies to take the longest route often get the same result. The best solution is to let our brains work to solve the problem!

To know how to do these corrections–go back to basics.  This client was completed with NO highlights. Instead of compromising the hair further, Candy went back to basics. She asked herself, “What makes light look lighter?” And the answer is DARK! The results speak for themselves. To see her process and formulas, check out Candy Shaw’s Instagram page @thebalaylama for the details!

Times Square, New York, New York; For Immediate Release

Candy Shaw, aka ‘The Balay Lama’, the founder of Sunlights Balayage — the makers and purveyors of the world’s leading balayage products and education — received Intercoiffure America/Canada’s (‘ICA’) prestigious ‘President’s Award’ at a black-tie ceremony at New York’s Hilton Hotel on Sunday, October 28, 2018 in recognition for her extraordinary service as the organization’s New Member Chair. Intercoiffure is the world’s leading hair and beauty organization. 

ICA experienced unprecedent growth during Candy’s four-year reign as membership chair, explained Frank Gambuzza, the organization’s President. Fifty-two new members were inducted at the Fall Atelier including such industry leaders as: Sam Villa, Nick Stenson, Nick Arrojo, Scott Missad, Richy Kandasamy, Ginger Boyle and Edward Tricomi. Shaw also inducted a number of new manufacturer partners like: Kevin.Murphy, Davines, L’anza, Hairbrained.me, and Beth Minardi.

The organization experienced a staggering 32% increase in ‘A’ members under the outgoing administration which included Gambuzza, 1st Vice President and Intercoiffure’s President elect Sheila Wilson, Candy Shaw and Artistic Director Van Council.

In addition to receiving the coveted ‘President’s Award’, and personally pinning the new members, Shaw was joined by Sonya Dove and acting on behalf of Platinum Sponsor Wella, presented the inaugural ‘Fabio Sementilli Scholarship Award’ to Vivian Yeh, who’s salon was recently destroyed by a hurricane. ICA not only pitched in to help Yeh rebuild but the annual scholarship fund established in Fabio’s memory enabled her to attend this year’s Atelier and be recognized and encouraged by her peers.

Trish Storhoff, who served on Shaw’s membership committee, takes over as Intercoiffure’s New Member Chair. Also serving on Shaw’s ‘blue ribbon’ committee were: Joseph Abolafia, Timothy Belcher, Sam Brocato, Marcy Cona, John Gialluisi, Shirley Gordon, Terry McKee, Angela Pantaleone, Debra Penzone, Coral Pleas, and Oliver Steinnagel. 

Shaw, who frequently says “joining Intercoiffure was the best business decision I ever made,” was recently appointed to the Advisory Board for Hair Expo, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest and best hair show, which next takes place in Sydney, Australia in June of 2019. Shaw will continue to serve on Intercoiffure’s Board of Directors.

ICA’s 2019 Spring Atelier will be held April 6-8 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Transitioning your Guest to their Natural Grey!

The time has finally come: your client has finally decided to embrace the beauty of having their natural grey come through. Don’t panic! This can be incredibly intimidating as a stylist. There are a million thoughts going through your head: “Where do I start?” “How do I approach this?” “No more every 3 week regrowth touch up? That’s less money on their ticket.” 

First and foremost, be honest with your client. Are they really ready to embrace this? Or are they just having a bad day? If they're really ready to give up the color retouch, that’s the first hurdle! 

Next, what does their natural color look like? What color have you been applying on top of this? Is their hair short or long? Obviously, the lighter the color and the shorter the hair, the easier the transition will be. If they have long, brunette hair, the transition may be a little harder for them to handle. There are many options depending on how drastic and how fast you and your client decide you want to do the transition. Some tend to want to do it a little more organically. In that case, just let the color grow in, and get more frequent hair cuts. Others would prefer to lighten up with highlights gradually and tone with a color closer to their natural grey but it will take more time.

However you approach it, you have to be honest with yourself and your client. This can be time consuming and costly. Explain to them that this is a process and will take time! Ask them to be patient, and in the end they'll be happy! Remeber that no matter what, our goal is to always make our guests happy.

Bobs are Back, Baby!

TREND ALERT! Popular hairstyles from the red carpet are always fun to imitate, some of the newest trends of this fall include bold bobs, bangs, and sleek parts!

Bobs are trending in the celebrity world now, ranging from angular to straight. Perhaps the surge in 90’s fashion and hair inspired the re-emergence of edgy bobs, and we love it! The geometric look is in, whether you want your bob in layers or all one length you’ll be a trendsetter going for a chop! 

Fringe-bangs are also on trend, with beautiful versatility to them. Long, tapered bangs allow the look to be at once relaxed and soft, while also being classic and elegant. Wear them to the side, split down the middle, or messy; they're this season’s fun new addition that can add diversity to a look.

Lastly, sleek looks with center parts are some of the most cool, sophisticated styles of this fall! Using a thin comb to get a perfectly straight line can make a style look sharp and clean. Even pair a center part with a edged bob to be even more trendy.

Visit our salon today to get on trend – we have skilled stylists who have learned the French cutting method; an essential technique to cutting the perfect bob, or fringe!

Why is Salon Education Important?

Here at Jamison Shaw Hairdressers the foundation of our success starts with education. Whether that education is from a salon, going to trade shows, or being self-taught watching youtube videos you are never too seasoned to stop educating yourself!

You may find yourself wondering why your books aren’t as full as they used to be, or why your clients throw a fit if you raise your prices by a few dollars. But ask yourself, when was the last time I invested in myself and my education? Graduating from cosmetology school may not be enough. Within Jamison Shaw Hair Dressers we have a class every Friday morning for our stylists and our assistants. That’s right! We carve out at least an hour and a half of our busy schedules to dedicate to education each week.

This education can range from our own stylists passing down their trade secrets, to outside educators coming in to show us the latest color formulating trends or (gasp!) even foiling. Jamison Shaw may be known for balayage, but if you don't use it, you lose it. We also have an in house academy that we host for people around the world to attend right here in Atlanta Georgia. Whether you are new to balayage, French hairdressing, or just need to refresh your skills, we encourage everyone to invest in their education at our Academy

Beginner's Tips

Balayage is one of the most requested services in the salon today. However, if you’ve been foiling since you left cosmetology school, painting hair can be intimidating, but it can be so rewarding to you as well as your clients once you get the hang of it! 
First step: Sectioning 
After pre-cutting, you’ll want to section your guest’s hair to start your balayage. Make sure the crown is not over parted; meaning taking the hair where it naturally falls instead of forcing the section to be where you want it. Take a section from the crown to the top of the ear and clip away and mimic on the other side. Make sure the sections are clipped back taunt so that you can stay clean while you paint.
Using Sunlights Balayage lightener, you will want to use a 1:1 ratio of lightener and any crème developer. You want the consistency to be like cream cheese - not too runny, and not too thick. Mix it with love! A good check is once the bowl is mixed, if you can hold it upside down with no spillage, you know you’ve got it right!
Third step: Application 
Tap, Rub, Push! Tapping the product on the regrowth first, you will then want to rub the product down the strand to the midshaft. Make sure the saturation is correct, before you move on to painting the ends and re-saturate if necessary at the regrowth and midshaft to avoid patchiness. Once you are happy with how the product looks on the strand, you then push your product onto the ends of the hair utilizing your balayage paddle, for full saturation and to have the “pop” on the ends.
Balayage is a technique that can be tricky to master, but with our tutorials, and some practice you’ll be painting your way to financial freedom, and saving time behind the chair!

What's the difference?

For those of us who have attended cosmetology school, we learned the British way to cut hair. Did you know there is another way? Here in Atlanta we don’t have to go to cosmetology school, instead we have the opportunity to apprentice under a master stylist. Within our salon at Jamison Shaw Hairdressers, French cutting is the only thing we know, and do because it's better!

Why is the French method better? Let’s break it down:

British haircutting is building the shape from the bottom up. It is angular (90 degree angles, or 180 degree angles) and architectural. In some instances a British cut is what your client wants with hard lines and angles, and that’s okay! However, in French haircutting is building the shape from the top down. It's soft and less angular. Following the head shape it allows the hair to fall in soft moving layers. For that reason, the same haircut can look completely different person to person since each person’s head is a different shape. The French cutting method also provides versatility so the guest can wear their hair in different styles.

In the time it takes someone to cut a traditional British bob, the French hairdresser will have cut 3 bobs and be well on their way to cutting the 4th. French cutting allows us to work smarter not harder! Everyone wants to know the secret to making more money behind the chair, and this is one of them!

Invest in the French cutting education you need. At our academy in Atlanta our world renowned educators teach you the efficiency of French Hairdressing and how to build your clientele learning to cut french the right way!

We’ve all heard it: Balayage is a fad. It’ll be out the door just like the cap. Well let us tell you! Balayage is like the little black dress. It isn’t going anywhere! Not only do we need to be educated in balayage and techniques, but we need to educate our guests on what is truth and what is myth about this beautiful technique:

This is not true! Can balayage create a beautiful melted ombre? Of course! There are
so many other options for this technique, all it takes is a little education, practice and you’ll
be creating more than just a typical ombre. Click here to see how!


False! As with using Sunlights lightener, our clay lightener can give up to 7 levels of lift when your application is correct. You have the option of making a bold statement, or beautiful subtle highlights.

 We all have those blonde clients who get out of the chair after the service and immediately look at their regrowth to see how close you were able to get those foils. With balayage, we paint right up to the scalp and hairlines. There is no foil line and nothing in between the lightener and your scalp. You can’t get much closer than that!

You can use as many different colors as you'd like! If you want to use a low light or multiple low lights, you can be as creative as your mind allows. Using the balayage wrap will help keep your colors separated and will act as a window for you to see your creation come to life. You can also balayage with fashion colors or only low lights. You do not have to use lightener. Remember, balayage is a technique, not a style!
 Wrong! Balayage lightener is mixed thicker than your standard foil lightener. Because of this, you are only painting on the surface of the hair therefore not the underneath side will not have anything on it.

Now you know the differences between balayage fact, and fiction! Check out our Youtube for more techniques on balayage.

In traveling to different salons and shows we often hear students say they do not need a balayage lightener, they just use foil lightener. Although foil lightener will lift the hair, the evenness of the application, as well as the end results, can sometimes be a little patchy.

Why is that? 

Typical foil lighteners have what is called 'silica' in them. Silica is very tiny sand granules and is considered a buffer within the lightener. The amount of silica within the product is what determines the consistency. If you look at the ingredients on most foil lighteners, silica is typically one of the first ingredients listed. Because of that, foil lighteners have a grainy texture and their consistency tends to be thin.



Better for Balayage
Of course, grainy texture and thin consistency aren't ideal for balayage. That's why Sunlights, which is specifically formulated for balayage, is Kaolin clay-based. Kaolin is a fine, soft, white clay that gives our lightener a smooth, creamy consistency rather than the grainy, thin consistency of granular, silica-based lighteners. It moisturizes hair while, and the application is incredibly smooth. Looking at the ingredients of Sunlights, you’ll see that Kaolin is one of the top ingredients listed.

Sunlights mixes thicker to be able to paint directly on the hair much more easily, without needing foils! This results in better looking painted strands, and the better it looks on the strands you paint, the better the outcome of the finished product!

Standing the Client Up: Why we do it, & why it's important.

If you are new to our salon, seeing us work on a client while they are standing up may seem very strange! To us, however, this is a quick efficient way to complete:

  1. The basic outline of a haircut 
  2. Balayage on a long-haired client

In our Atlanta salon we stand all of our guests up to start a haircut. That's right! Stand your guest up out of their seat!

Not only does this grab attention, it gives the stylist control of the situation! Our stylists adjust the guest's head in order to get the perfect shape. When we turn their head left or right, it takes shoulders out of the picture and provides a crisp, clean line for cutting.

A better approach to guests who have longer hair is by standing them up! Standing up the client is always the fastest, cleanest, least back-breaking way of doing highlights on long hair. It puts us on an even playing field with our canvas and allows us to paint exactly what we see. And the best part? It's fun! Who doesn't like painting on a canvas and having the freedom to be creative?

So give it a try! Stand your client up, grab their attention, and create a beautiful masterpiece your guest deserves!

Sunlights Balayage, the makers and purveyors of the world’s leading balayage products and education, shattered an all-time education record at the 95th America’s Beauty Show in Chicago on Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Candy Shaw, Sunlights’ creator, and the Sunlights’ Artisan Education Team held hands-on balayage classes for 120 students in a single day! Sunlight’s back-to-back three-hour courses, hosting sixty students each, set both new attendance and revenue records at the ABS, one of America’s largest and most prestigious shows. In its usual style, Sunlights accomplished this extraordinary feat without sacrificing quality. Feedback from attendees included: “I’ve attended hundreds of classes in my career, this was by far the best class I have ever been to” and “I went to two different balayage classes this weekend. There was no comparison! Sunlights’ class was head and shoulders above the rest!”

Paul Dykstra, the CEO of Cosmetologists Chicago, who produces the show, said “Candy Shaw is the consummate educator… We are proud that Candy and her team consider America’s Beauty Show among the must-do shows worldwide.”

In addition to its hands-on training, Sunlights taught a ‘Look & Learn’ for more than fifty additional students. This marks the seventh straight year that Sunlights’ ABS hands-on classes sold out. Sunlights also sponsored the late Jerry Gordon’s ‘Sunlights Yellow’ racecar prominently displayed at the show’s main entrance. Jerry was an iconic 20th century American hairdresser who also famously raced Ferraris. Candy Shaw, last year’s recipient and the only female winner of the Jerry Gordon ‘Salon Business Leadership Award’, hosted a champagne toast in Jerry’s honor for the Cosmetologists Chicago’s Board of Directors to kick off this year’s show.

You can next see Candy and the Sunlights Artisan Education Team in Orlando, Florida, June 3 & 4, at the Premiere Orlando Show and then again in Melbourne, Australia, June 9-11 at Hair Expo, where Candy is the headliner. You can sign up for both hands-on and Look & Learn classes at each of these events at www.premiereorlandoshow.biz and www.hairexpoaustralia.com.

The Australian hair industry is about to take on a journey like no other when Candy appears at Hair Expo in June.
