About Faces By Shannon

hired 3 times on Thumbtack

My interest has always been in beauty. As a young girl, I knew it was what I wanted as a career. I started working in the beauty business at Safire McMillan Canale Salon in Malibu, California at the age of 17. First, as the receptionist, I moved up to being shampoo girl and then apprenticed under Bernie Safire. He was my mentor and a friend that introduced me to some of Hollywood's biggest celebrities. As time passed, I realized hair was not my passion and started to focus on skin and makeup.

I moved to Australia at 19 and did various freelance work at salons while attending college, but my heart remained here at home in the states.

Upon returning to the states I went to work for MAC while living in South Carolina. I loved working at the makeup counter and helping people look their best, but I soon realized I wanted a more personal relationship with my clients.

After moving to Florida and attending the Florida College of Natural Health to obtain my license in Esthetics. I cannot only help women look their best with makeup, but I could also show them how to have a beautiful canvas on which to create any look they want to achieve.

    I worked with Shannon for my wedding. After doing two makeup trials and working with her on my Big Day, I can't say enough about how talented she is. Her technique is great--a natural, but noticeable and glamorous application; and she and her team are also incredibly professional. Great talent and great to work with. Highly recommended!

    I was 26 years old and I had NEVER gotten my eyebrows waxed...until I got them done by Faces By Shannon. I felt so comfortable and relaxed--before I knew it, it was done and my brows looked amazing! I will be going back for my eyebrows and much more!
