Sunlights Returns Down Under!

Last year, Candy Shaw and the Sunlights team headed to Melbourne for Hair Expo Australia, the largest hair show in the country! We had such a great time we returned, this year to Sydney!

Candy and her team taught two hands-on balayage classes to a total of 70 students on Sunday, then spread the Balay Gospel to OVER 400 students in a packed out Look & Learn on Monday. With numbers like that, it's clear that Australia has bought in to the Balayage Revolution in a big way!

Thank you so much to all the wonderful Balay Believers that came out this past weekend and made our second visit to the other side of the world so special. We can't wait to be back!

Did you make it out to see us this past weekend and are looking for Sunlights down under? Just want to see what all the buzz is about? We're available through Rogue Beauty at sunlightsbalayage.com.au!

Living stateside and looking for some more Sunlights love in your life? Candy and her team will be in Bellevue, Washington next weekend! We'll be back soon with more tradeshow updates, so stay tuned!

SUNLIGHTS Turns 5 at ABS Chicago 2019!

You’d think after 8 straight years, we’d be tired of ABS Chicago, but you’d be wrong!

This year saw not only the release of our all new 50 volume High Lift Balayage Developer, Suncrème, but it also marked Sunlights' FIFTH BIRTHDAY!

The chilly weather couldn’t keep us out of sunny spirits, with Candy Shaw spreading the balayage love in a (what else?) packed out Hands-On Balayage class. We weren’t just there to paint the tradeshow floor yellow, though: for the first time ever, Candy brought a live hands-on French Cutting workshop to Chicago! The sold-out class opened up a whole new world of hair cutting to a group of students looking to further their skills as hairdressers.

Among the droves of hairdressers in attendance were a group of very special visitors: a group of SIXTY beauty school students that came all the way from Erie, Pennsylvania to meet the Balay Lama, lead by our very own Sunlights Artisan Educator, Kayla Noonan!

We’re glad to be home after a nonstop weekend packed to the brim with French Cutting and Balayage, but it was certainly one for the record books and a birthday to be remembered! With the support of Balayage Believers all over the world, we’ve been Painting the World Yellow for five years, and can’t wait to see what the next five bring.

See you soon at ABA Toronto, then Image Expo Houston, Sunnies — here’s to many more years of spreading the Balay Gospel!

Candy's First Ever 'Cut Camp' HUGE success!

This past weekend, Sunlights Balayage and the Academy at Jamison Shaw had the pleasure of hosting 20 students for our first ever Candy’s Cut Camp! Students took part in an intensive, 3-day workshop to learn the French Way — the right way!

The weekend began with a get together over dinner with the Balay Lama on Friday night. Can’t learn on an empty stomach, can you? With bellies full, our French Cutting devotees-to-be were ready to learn!

Students spent Saturday deeply engrossed in one-on-one learning with Candy Shaw, getting a detailed looking into her “Americanized” French Cutting method as they shadowed her in her Atlanta salon. Throughout the day, they learned the ins and outs of the technique, and how to use it to create gorgeous, versatile, and consumer-friendly hair cuts in half the time of a British cut. 

Sunday, the group took live models and really put their new found knowledge to the test. Nothing tests your skills like the real thing, and this crowd did not disappoint — nothing but beautiful hair cuts and happy guests walked out the door!

Just the Cut Camp would be a busy weekend for anyone, but was that enough for us? Not at all!

On Saturday, we had the honor of hosting ANOTHER cutting class at our education facility taught by none other than protege of Vidal Sassoon and world-renowned haircutter DJ Muldoon! Talk about a full schedule!

In all, it’s hard to ask for a more successful weekend. Such a successful weekend, in fact, that we’re excited to announce ANOTHER Cut Camp this July 27 + 28! If you missed out on the inaugural class, you have another chance but act fast — this class WILL sell out quickly!

Stay tuned for the release of the registration form to secure your place in Candy’s Cut Camp!

Sunlights Welcomes 37 NEW Trainers at Train the Trainer 2019!

Another Train the Trainer has come and gone!

This past weekend, Sunlights Balayage had the distinct pleasure of hosting a whopping 37 trainers from all over the world right here in Atlanta, Georgia — including one from the United Kingdom and not one, but TWO from Sweden! It was truly a mind-blowing weekend overflowing with inspiration, fun, friendship, mentorship, and — most of all — SUNSHINE! 

The weekend kicked off with a bang, beginning with an entrepreneurship workshop that featured some of our Artisan Team “Legends” — Lacie Wehrle, Abby Warther, Wayne Giles, and Jessica Scott Santo. A tour of Candy’s award-winning 50 chair salon, Jamison Shaw Hairdressers, followed to give the class of 2019 a glimpse into a busy day at the birthplace of Sunlights. Afterward, our newest crop of Artisan Educators was treated to a wonderful night of celebration at the Balay Lama’s own home, including a beautiful piano and cello duet from two of their own — Dianne Sitar of New Hampshire, and Brendan Buoni of Washington!

It wouldn’t be a Sunlights event if it wasn’t packed to the brim with education! The second day featured an intensive, all day, hands-on balayage class in which our newbies learned a wealth of tips, tricks, and techniques straight from the Balay Lama to carry with them into the classroom. After a busy day of painting, the group blew off some steam with a surprise trip to Top Golf to putt and play the night away — inflatable yellow suits included.

On the final day of the event, painters were divided into teams to show off their skills on stage, all judged by Candy Shaw and the Artisan Team Legends! After winners were awarded, Candy took a few moments to honor those legends and give the new class back story on their journey with the Sunlights family. Diplomas were presented, educators were gifted their very own handmade Sunlights aprons, and the whole weekend was topped off with what else? A dance party!

Train the Trainer is always a weekend full of laughter, tears, inspiration, new friendships, and life long bonds, and this fourth year was no exception. Please welcome to the family your 37 newest Sunlights Artisan Educators, the Train the Trainer Class of 2019!

Be on the lookout for classes in these brand new territories: Washington, New Hampshire, Maryland, Colorado, Arkansas, and Minnesota! For classes in the UK, please contact Rebel Beauty Brands; for classes in Sweden, please contact Baldacci Haircare.

'Learn What It Takes To Reach The Top In The Beauty Industry' from American Salon

If you're familiar with balayage, you're familiar with Candy Shaw. With the moniker the "Balay Lama," Shaw has been building her brand for the better part of her life—her father, Jamison Shaw, was a former world champion hairdresser and her mother was a professional makeup artist. Now, with over 35 years of experience, Shaw owns Jamison Shaw Hairdressers, a 5,000-square-foot, 50-chair salon in Atlanta, and sees more than 30 clients a day with the help of multiple assistants. 

In the hair color world, Shaw is regarded as a foremost authority on balayage education. She founded The Academy at Jamison Shaw, an advanced training facility teaching balayage highlighting more than 20 years ago, and launched a professional product line called Sunlights Balayage in 2014. Not to mention, she has worked with several A-list clients, including Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, and Karina Smirnoff, and received a number of honors including being named North America's Educator of the Year in 2017 by Intercoiffure. 

If you're wondering exactly how Shaw built her empire, she'll be sharing her secrets alongside some of the industry's most influential names at this year's International Beauty Show New York during the Leading Ladies segment. The brainchild of Tracey Hughes and Candy Shaw, Leading Ladies is an honest and realistic program that dives deep into what it takes for someone to reach the top in the beauty industry. Emcee Mark Bustos will guide the conversation between Candy Shaw, Kris Sorbie, Najah Aziz, Ruth Roche, and Tracey Hughes, who will share their respective stories about what it takes to succeed. 

"Beauty professionals can expect to take a number of things away from the Leading Ladies program," Shaw says. "Friendship, emotion, motivation, confirmation, and inspiration, to name a few. The program's raw and simple format—just five of us sitting on stools with a shared microphone—makes the audience feel as though they are onstage with us, appreciating the struggles and gaining confirmation that their journey is very similar to the panelists," Shaw adds. "Attendees will leave both motivated and inspired by the collective, shared wisdom of the accomplished panel of women."
