[04/03/21]   It’s been a busy spring! Please try and call ahead (at least a week) for an appointment with me. There are 14 of us at By Shear Design Salon and Spa and most days unable to accommodate walkins, even though we always try!
My personal schedule is cutting down a bit as well as I seem to be aging (#heavysigh) and feeling some physical effects from years of standing.
I AM available for evening appointments for those working folks, However, at this time I am working just one Saturday a month. I’ve worked Saturdays my entire career and am enjoying having some off (in my old age! Ha)
Thank you to all my amazing clients (and co-workers) for your loyalty and friendship!
I love getting to visit with all my best friends every day. It has always made my job not feel like work!

So many have become dependent on appointment reminders that are sent out through our salon computer system.

In the event that we should ever lose our service connection, please know that we are still open and expecting you to arrive for your appointment.

Feel free to contact your salon artist for an appointment confirmation if you are uncertain of your scheduled appointment date and time.

Our salon will continue to be open Monday through Saturday. Thank you for choosing us!

To our guests at By Shear Design Salon and Spa:

In light of recent announcements from Governor Parson, and in accordance with the City of Hollister, we will be reopening on Monday, May 4th.

We want to be very clear that the safety of our guests, as well as our artists, is something we are taking very seriously as we navigate this strange time in history! Our salon will continue to carefully follow MO State Board Sanitation Guidelines and will be taking on several extra safety precautions to ensure our guests can leave our salon healthy and happy.

We are doing our very best to get everyone scheduled for their services, but we have limited appointment availability. Our artists will be reaching out to their guests about scheduling appointments, but if you’ve not heard from us yet, please feel free to contact them individually about their availability! Our artists will be scheduling extended appointment times to allow for proper sanitation and disinfection in-between guests, as well as working one-on-one within their suites to reduce the number of people coming in and out of the salon. Beginning on Monday morning, we will have a Guest Coordinator taking messages for our artists, but she will not be scheduling appointments. We ask that you please refrain from calling the salon before May 4th, as no one will be available to take your call. If you’d like to make an appointment with our artists, please feel free to fill out our online form at

Here's what you can expect:

-First things first: If you are not feeling well, are immunocompromised, or are uncomfortable coming in for an appointment during this time, do not come in! We can always reschedule your appointment for a later time or work with you to accommodate your needs. Reach out to your artist if you have any concerns!

-Arriving for your appointment: Please do not arrive early! We will not have any seating available within our lobby, so you will have to wait in your car or in our “socially-distanced” outdoor seating.

- Limited items and guests: Please limit your belongings to only your necessities, perhaps your phone and form of payment if able. Do not bring any extra guests with you, including children to your appointment at this time. If you bring extra guests, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for another time.

-At the door: Your temperature will be taken upon entry. If you have a fever of 100 or above, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for a later date. You will also be asked to use the hand sanitizer posted outside of the door prior to entry.

-Waivers and questions: Some of our artists will require you to sign a waiver prior to your service. You can also expect to be asked if in the last 14 days you:
•had a fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath
•have traveled more than 50 miles outside of the city of Hollister
•have been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 patients

-Masks: All of our staff will be wearing masks. We require that you wear a mask to your appointment, preferably one that secures behind your ears. If you are not wearing a mask, we maintain the right to refuse service.

-Gloves: Please do not arrive at your appointment wearing gloves, as we cannot ensure that they are clean!

-Capes: Each guest will be fitted with a new cape for their appointment, and all capes will be properly disinfected between uses.

- No beverages: We will not be offering any beverages at this time.

-Touchless greetings & goodbyes: We will not be shaking hands or hugging at this time. 😞

This has been an incredibly difficult (and weird!) time for all of us, and we’re forever grateful for your patience as we do our best to accommodate your needs while keeping everyone as safe as we can! We will be working diligently over the next few weeks to handle the influx of appointments that have accumulated during this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your artists, or to our salon after May 4th!

Thank you so very much for your kindness and support during this difficult time in history. We look forward to seeing you in the salon soon!

-All of us at By Shear Design Salon and Spa

[04/22/20]   REOPENING

We are hopeful that we will be able to reopen our salon on Monday, May 4th.
I am taking appts and if that should change due to executive order by the governor I will contact any of you with an appt.
We also will be implementing some new procedures as we all ease back into our new normal.

1. When you arrive for your appt please text/call me and wait in your car. I will either come and get you or text you back when I am ready. We will be avoiding any waiting in the front area.
2. I will scan your forehead for your temperature.
2. Please notify me if you have traveled anywhere outside of taney or stone county 2 weeks prior to your appt.
3. All stylists will be wearing a mask, feel free to wear one, however it may have to come off at some point for your cut. You are not required to wear a mask.
4. I will be sanitizing my stylist chair after each client and/or any surface touched or used by prior client or myself.
5. There will be hand sanitizer outside the front door. Please sanitize your hands before entering the salon. You will be asked to wash your hands or use sanitizer in front of me as well while I do the same.
6. If you are not feeling well in any way or have a cough you will be rescheduled.
7. Please do not bring a friend or family member with you for your appt. Exceptions will be if a child is receiving a service.
8. Shared shampoo area will also be sanitized before and after each guest as well as the chair backs and arms.
9. I ask if you are uncomfortable with anything you might see or experience while visiting my private room/shampoo area that you immediately communicate that to me.
As always, YOU are my priority and now more than ever your health and safety will be top of mind and I will diligently keep any area you visit sanitized and safe.
Thank you! I have missed you all and am looking forward to getting back to the “grind”. I love my career and my place of employment, so being back together again, even though a little different, will be a happy time for me!

Today, a parade for another great client’s 90th birthday! As we drive by her house - with signs and balloons on our cars - I have gathered some interesting finds in my house to wrap and toss! I can’t say I’ve ever given jello as a birthday gift!

[03/10/20]   Besides the flu which has been rampant this winter, we are now hearing reports of the dreaded corona in Missouri. While it’s not a good idea to panic, we all still want to protect ourselves and others.
Please rebook your appointment with your stylist if you’re feeling sick and stay home and out of the public.
Consider your stylist who sees dozens of clients a week and the exposure that she/he encounters. When your stylist gets ill she should also have the consideration to stay home and not spread illness. When we don’t work we don’t make money. Remember, we don’t have the luxury of paid sick days and missing work because of sickness puts a dent in our pocketbook!
So MY clients are aware, I will refuse service is you are running a fever and ask you to rebook. Please don’t be offended if I give you a mask to wear if you are showing signs of a cold or flu and we do continue with your service.
Thank you for understanding!
We appreciate all of our clients and only want what’s best for all!

[11/23/19]   Is coconut oil good for your hair?

Rub coconut oil onto your skin and it certainly looks softer and feels more moisturized, right? So, it only makes sense that the same would go for your hair. Well, while coconut oil is “somewhat” moisturizing, it's not necessarily the best option in the longterm.
The problem is the molecule is so big that it doesn’t get absorbed like products created specifically for hair, Instead, it sits on top of the hair shaft and makes it shiny and soft — but just temporarily. That means you’re just one hair wash away from losing any benefits the coconut oil might have had for your hair.
If it’s deep conditioning you’re looking for you will not get it with coconut oil. You need a product that has smaller molecules and will pe*****te into the hair shaft and strengthen/moisturize from within.

[11/01/19]   Pre-booking is so important! The next seven weeks will be a very busy time at the salon. My schedule is filling up quickly and I want to take a minute and remind all guests to please pre-book your appointments. This is the best way to make sure that you are getting the day and time that will best fit your needs. 417-294-2050

[09/30/19]   Fall is upon us!! Time for a new or different look! Deepen those highlights? Get rid of the sun damaged ends with a fresh cut? Whole new shade? Let’s do it!!


We have grown to 18! And what a powerful group of women we are!! Talented, creative, kind, compassionate, giving, funny, and always totally annoying!! I love going to work.


Little ‘trim’, reduce the gold tones and you have a whole new look without drastic changes.
