Candy Shaw has been named Female Entrepreneur of the Year and Woman of the Year in the Women Helping Women category at the 2017 Women in Business & the Professions Awards!
The award was handed out on the evening of June 26 at the historic Intercontinental Mark Hopkins hotel in San Francisco, California. Our Balay Lama was honored for both her tireless dedication to propagating Sunlights and the virtues of balayage to hairdressers the world over, and consequently her work towards improving the lives of hairdressers (who are mostly women) everywhere. There couldn't be a better or more deserving candidate for this award, and send our most sincere thanks to the amazing organization that bestowed this honor upon Candy.
It's already been a busy year for Candy - in addition to being named Female Entrepreneur of the Year and Woman of the Year, she's also won Maverick of the Year and won the 2017 Jerry Gordon Salon Business Leadership Award, and Sunlights took home the prize for Start Up of the Year at last year's Beauty Pitch.
Where will Sunlights and Candy Shaw go next? Who knows! Make sure to keep up with us here and on Facebook and Instagram (for both Candy and Sunlights!) to find out.
Until next time, Balayage Believers!
