SHANNON MCDONALD

Shannon has been passionate about all things beauty since she was just ten years old. She was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and moved all over the west coast to pursue her dreams in doing hair and make-up for motion picture, film, and TV. 

 

Shannon has been a licensed cosmetologist for 11 years and currently holds licenses in Colorado, California, and Pennsylvania. Shannon graduated from Jean Madeline Aveda Institute of Philadelphia with a full cosmetologist license at the top of her class.

 

Shannon moved to California to pursue her dreams as a celebrity hairstylist and make-up artist. She graduated from Make-up Designory of California with a Master’s Degree in beauty make-up and special effects creation/make-up.  From there, she worked on various movie sets, music videos, photoshoots, and red carpet events. Shannon’s work has been published in many places, one being the cover of the “Makeup Artist“ magazine for her work at the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) in LA in 2012. 

 

Shannon has two young boys that inspired her to move to Colorado. Aside from doing hair and make-up, her favorite things are spending time outdoors and enjoying time with her friends and family.

Sadie had a passion for fashion, art, and personal style ever since she was a young kid. She loves exploring different ways to express her personality through what people see. She found that hair was the perfect way to showcase just this.

 

During high school, Sadie drew influence from the music scene. She became the “go-to” hairstylist for friends and family. She spent multiple nights a week going to shows and being so inspired by everyone’s unique style.

 

Through the years, her muses and inspiration have evolved. Her current obsession is nature. Inspired by the colors and textures in nature, she works to translate her love for the outdoors into her art with hair. It brings her so much joy to highlight one’s natural beauty, just the way nature intended. Enhancing a client’s natural color and texture will help bring out their best features. When clients don’t love their natural color, Sadie works with them to find a style that compliments their best features, awakening their most confident self.

 

Sadie has worked in the hair industry as a stylist for 15 years. Her knowledge continues to grow by furthering my education with the latest trends. Her extensive education includes Arrojo, Bumble and Bumble, Hairstory, Wella, Pony Studios, Oribe, Unite, R+co, and many more big industry names. 

 

Sadie also enjoys doing editorial work. She has worked Denver Fashion week, has done numerous photoshoots, and even had her work featured in Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine.

 

When she is not in the salon, she is outside exploring with her pup Georgie or getting her sweat on in the yoga studio or whatever workout she is currently obsessing over. She is a huge fan of delicious food, so wining and dining is another favorite hobby. She just moved to Steamboat after living in Denver for 12 years. She is so excited to explore and make meaningful connections with lots of new people. She can’t wait to meet you!

HUNTER GANSMANN

Hunter is a Colorado native raised in the beautiful valley of Steamboat Springs. She has worked as a professional in the beauty industry for five years; however, her love for beauty started at a very young age.  She loves that her career and her passion are the same!

 

Hunter graduated as a Cosmetologist from Colorado Northwestern.  She started her career working in all areas of her industry: hair, nails, makeup, skincare, and lashes.  Eventually, Hunter decided to focus her attention on Aesthetics & Lash Artistry.  To hone this skill, Hunter began working with Milk + Honey Spa & Salon — one of Austin, TX's top spas.  To go even deeper, she moved into the Medical Aesthetics field, where she received additional training from FacetoFace Spa, also located in Austin, TX.

 

A mountain girl at heart, Hunter chose to head the call and move to Saratoga, WY, to work with the prestigious Relais Chateau, where she learned how to deliver world-class spa service.  Once there, she met the love of her life and the father of her son!  This lead Hunter and her family back to Steamboat Springs, CO, to create a home and her own business as an Esthetician and Lash Artist.

 

Hunter seeks to create an inclusive space for locals and visitors.  She strives to create a comfortable "at home" feeling that leaves customers feeling AMAZING with their self-love experience!
