The Balay Lama
"An American entertainer once said 'most overnight successes take about twenty years,' which is exactly how long I’ve been teaching balayage." - Candy Shaw
Celebrity-stylist Candy Shaw literally grew up in the beauty business as the daughter of former world-champion competition-hairdresser Jamison Shaw. Trained in Paris, Candy’s been a French Cutter and Balayage Highlighter her entire life. Widely regarded as the world’s foremost authority on balayage education, Candy teaches a hair painting system that’s fast, efficient, beautiful and profitable. Today Candy runs three companies. Jamison Shaw Hairdressers, a fifty-year-young, third-generation, 50 chair salon in Atlanta, where she works full-time behind-the-chair to personally service up to thirty-five guests each day. An Advanced Training Academy specializing in balayage education that is twenty-years young. And her most recent venture, SUNLIGHTS Balayage, the maker and purveyor of the world’s leading balayage products and education, including THE BALAY BOX® and SUNLIGHTS Professionnel Balayage Lightener®.
