Brunswick Maine`s best secret

My mission & History

My mission at Shear Body is to provide you with quality service from the moment you come through the door. Whether you come in for just a brow wax or a day of pampering, I will strive to do my best.

If you're looking for an affordable salon experience, where you can be yourself and feel at home, look no further.

I will provide you with consistent, professional and personalized services.

I received my Cosmetology license in July of 1980, after completing my training from Mansfield Beauty Academy.

Having been a cosmetologist for 21 years, and having worked for 5 different salons from the Portland and Bath/Brunswick areas, I decided it was time to open my own salon. (This, after I "retired" from the industry to try "something different". I didn't know how much I would miss it.)

Thanks to the experiences and training of the various salons I had worked for, I was able to offer a full Day Spa menu when I opened Shear Body Hair Studio & Spa.

In May of 2000, Shear Body began in a 110 sq. in the basement of the old Mitchell School on High Street in Bath, Maine. I stayed in that location for the next 3 years, once again building a clientele and improving my skills, especially those of being a small business owner.

Feeling a bit closed in I began to look for a new location. Construction on the new 1180 sq. ft. space began in April of 2003 and continued until mid August. We opened with a wedding party of 5 which was hectic and a lot of fun.

After 10 years I decided to down size to a smaller space in the same building. After a few weeks of construction, the new Shear Body Hair & Waxing Studio opened on December 17, 2014

There have been a lot of changes and adjustments over the last 20 years, all of which has made me stronger and more excited to be your stylist and waxing provider, where "You are the center of attention".
