Shannon Wakeling


Coming from the sunny streets of Sydney Australia, Shannon is an innovative hairdresser that prides herself on creating fresh and funky hair cuts and colours. In her opinion there is nothing worse than boring hair! After all, your hair is the only accessory you will ever wear that you cannot take off at the end of the day.

She really takes the time to listen to her clients needs and wants, and makes sure that they are both on the same page, so that she can be sure to give her clients a hairstyle that they will love. Shannon sees creating striking hair as an art form. There is nothing more that she loves than making her clients feel beautiful and alive.

Back in Australia Shannon trained with Toni and Guy and spent a majority of her career working with this company. Working with Toni and Guy Shannon’s work has been recognized and celebrated through numerous awards and accolades including Photographic collections published in Vogue Italia and Culture Magazine, Assisting Backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Sydney for Ellery, Winner of Wella Trend Vision in her category for NSW 2011 and 2012 and Finalist in the Australian Hair and Fashion Awards 2013.

From here, Shannon went on to start her own Freelance hairdressing business focusing mostly on glamorous upstyles for weddings, catwalk events and photographic editorial shoots in Australia. Constantly looking for new inspiration and trends, and with a passion for travel Shannon then decided to bring her business to the vibrant city of Amsterdam.
