Our Team

Owner/Stylist, Associate Trainer

Stacey Wilson

Stacey is the owner as well as a stylist at Shear Artistry. With 27 years behind the chair, she still is able to say “I truly love my career and enjoy helping my guests feel better about themselves”.

Stacey is where she is today because she wanted to offer a better experience for her guests while offering her employees/co-workers a salon atmosphere and work experience rival to none.

Starting out her training at Calhoun Community College with Pivot Point, Stacey continues to train extensively with world renowned Redken and Pureology artists. Stacey is a Certified Redken Colorist, Redken Certified Design Stylist as well as a Certified Pureology Expert. “I believe that in this industry, education and learning can never end. As trends and styles are constantly changing, so are the techniques to achieve them”. Stacey also believes in passing it on as she mentors up and coming stylists that participate in the salon’s associate program. Working one on one with her daily, they gain a first-hand knowledge and the self-confidence needed to be successful at a much faster pace than someone going it alone.

When she’s not behind the chair, Stacey enjoys spending time with her family, decorating interior spaces and reading.
