Shear Elegance Hair Salon

Liven up your hair with a treatment from Shear Elegance Hair Salon on Gulf Shores Parkway. They have been serving Gulf Shores for over 30 years now and love being part of this amazing community. Owner and stylist Laura received her cosmetology degree from Charles Academy of Beauty Culture and has been working hard for over three decades to make clients look and feel stunning. The stylists that work for her also value their clients and will work with each individual to give them the look that they want.

They do haircuts for men, women, and children. Just need a trim? They can do that. They also do a fantastic job with coloring hair. The stylists use the Igora 10-minute coloring system so you can get in-and-out in no time at all.

If you want your hair straightened, Shear Elegance does Keratherapy hair straightening, which is something their clients rave about. Shampoos, blow-drying, and waxing are all available too.

Highlights can be done when you come into the salon. You can get foils, painting, frosting, or chunking done by the stylist you see. Of course, hair straightening is quite popular here since the humidity outside can make your hair frizz up. The Keratherapy treatment is highly effective at combating frizz and will leave your hair with a long-lasting sleekness and sheen.

While you’re there, you can pick up some of their products. They carry Igora 10-minute colors, CULURA coloring systems, and REDKEN shampoo and conditioner. You can also get Scruples’ Urban Shock color treatments here, which involve no developer and no ammonia. You can take your pick from numerous soft pastels or vivid shades. There are also plenty of oils and hair gels in stock, so if you forgot yours at home or run out while you’re staying in Gulf Shores, stop by and stock up on the high-quality hair products you need.
