Hair stylist Shannon Keel, of Lee has created a hair coloring technique that has gone international. She is traveling all over the country to teach her technique. Shannon has been a hair stylist since 1992 and after moving to Madison County to be closer to her family, opened The Hair Parlor in 2009. Shannon came up with the color-melt technique when coloring a client’s hair who was in a rush. Color-melt is a way to create a natural gradient look without using foil. Shannon is also great at hair painting and corrugated (zigzag) highlights. Hair painting uses a clay-based lightener that you can paint on the hair and it gives it a nice sun kissed look. Corrugated (zigzag) highlights gives the hair pretty pops of color throughout. She started teaching these three techniques in her classes in February and the reception has been overwhelming. She has a wonderful assistant, Mandy Smith, of Lee, who travels with her to most of the classes. Mandy will work at The Hair Parlor when she graduates school. “I have a heart for stylists and I want to see their passion ignited again,” said Shannon about teaching. Hair stylists from Denmark have arraigned for Shannon to come to Denmark for a week and teach classes at the end of September. While there, a stylist from the Netherlands will travel to Denmark to have a one on one class with her. Shannon and her husband, Jeff plan to make the most out of the trip. Shannon has also received requests for classes in Canada and Australia.
