Employee of the Month: September 2015

Simmons-Jr-TimJoin us in congratulating our own Tim Shane on being named the Blades Salon and Spa Employee of the Month for September! We hope you enjoy this glimpse inside his world!
Q. What is your number one piece of style advice as we transition into Fall 2015?
A. Fall is a great time of year for color! Make a gradual, natural transition from bright locks to richer, softer tones.
Q. If you could style anyone, living or dead, who would you choose and why?
A. I would have loved to cut James Dean’s hair. Why? Because he’s James Dean!
Q. What is one style trend that just needs to go this Fall?
A. The ombré needs to disappear. It’s been a tired look for over a year. Let’s try something new, Louisville!
Q. What inspires you to continue learning and growing as a stylist?
A. I always look to what’s going on outside for my inspiration, never out of a magazine. Nature provides all the best colors and shapes!
We hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about Tim Shane! Want to schedule a consultation with Tim? Just call (502) 893-0431!
