Shag Salon is the vision come to life for owner/stylist Shannon Campbell. “I wanted to provide a relaxed atmosphere, where clients felt more like friends. The personal connection between our stylists and clients, is equally as important to me as what we do with our scissors and a color brush.”
Shag Salon is dedicated to providing you with the most up to date techniques and we take extreme care in choosing the products we utilize and recommend.
We, as a team, constantly seek advanced education to be sure that you will be up to date and on trend. Focus on the lifestyle of each individual client is of the utmost importance to us in helping us choose the look that is best for YOU!”
The hairdresser is…
It is my considered opinion that the hairdresser is the most influential person in any community. When the public goes to a hairdresser, something happens to them. They feel safe, they relax. The hairdresser knows what their skin is like under the makeup, they know their age, they don't have to keep up any kind of pretense. People tell a hairdresser things they wouldn't dare confess to a priest and they are open about matters they'd try to conceal from a doctor. When people place their secret lives in the hairdresser's hands, the hairdresser gains an authority few other people attain. I have heard hairdressers quoted with complete conviction on art, literature, politics, economics, child care and morals. I tell you that a clever, thoughtful, ambitious hairdresser wields a power beyond comprehension of most people.

Having found a passion for hair at a young age, it was a goal of Jill’s to study under a stylist who has experienced the ins and outs of this industry.

Along with Shannon, Jill continues to hone her craft by regularly participating in advanced continuing education. Jill specializes in hair cutting and hair straightening, specifically the “Magic Sleek” technique. As well as both conventional and edgier fashion hair coloring.

After growing up in the Midwest and then moving down to South Carolina, Ashley has been lucky enough to experience several salons in the Mount Pleasant area. On the job experience is her favorite way to learn new skills. She is now finishing her last semester of cosmetology school at Wando High School and will be receiving her license in April.
