Fall Education Part Two: Balayage Gets Better

It is no secret that the technique of Balayage has taken over the world of professional hair color. For the past ten years,  it has continued to be an important trend. The technique is difficult to master and often takes years to perfect.

The agreed-upon expert in this field is Ms. Candy Shaw (@thebalaylama) of Jamison Shaw Salon (Jamison Shaw Hairdressers) in Atlanta, Georgia. For decades now she has been internationally recognized as the leader in the perfection of this beautiful technique.

Did you know that The Root Salon has one of the country’s top Balayage experts, personally trained by Ms. Shaw on our team? Our very own Shane Mullins studied with Candy and was also an educator and colorist on her team in Atlanta for quite some time.

Shane’s career path led him to join our team five years ago and today, he is a much sought-after Balayage expert on our staff. Given his years of experience, one would think he knows everything and that he would just be satisfied with being amazing. But, as keeping with our tempo here at The Root, we never stop learning.


Last week, Candy and her team came to Phoenix, and guess who was one of the first to sign up for her class? Yep, Shane! He spent two full days learning everything in the advances and updates of this technique.

Shane has returned to the salon energized and inspired for the coming holiday season. You are going to want to book ahead of time to experience the benefits of this super-talented guy’s ability.

If you want to try a new Balayage soon, the good news is, our team members learn from one another. Education and being at the top of our game are part of our core culture here at the salon. So, get to our website and get your Baly on today!
