For the first time ever Sunlights Balayage and its creator Candy Shaw were invited to teach in Cape Town, South Africa! Candy was invited by Baldacci, their Swedish Distributor, who brought over 50 of their best customers to an Education and Wellness event!
Each morning the group of hairdressers started their day with either Yoga or an exercise Boot Camp on the beach. Candy also shared her best business practices of how to run a salon in America. She taught them how she hires, how she trains, and how to become a six-figure hairdresser, all essential practices in running a successful salon.
Candy also spent the afternoon introducing the Sunlights brand, and teaching a Look and Learn Balayage Demo. She stated, "my first impression of the Swedish hairdresser was since blondes are quite common, they would all know how to paint balayage!" However, to her surprise, the technique, although wildly popular in America, is just now catching on in Sweden!
The Swedes were so excited to learn from The Balay Lama they are organizing a trip in 2020 to come to her Academy in Atlanta to see first hand how an American Salon and it’s business practices are run! We can't wait to spread the Balay Gospel all through Sweden!

Sunlights Balayage & Jamison Shaw Hairdressers Give Back
We absolutely love what we do at Jamison Shaw! We can’t imagine anyone getting into the beauty industry that doesn’t thoroughly enjoy making people feel better about themselves, and seeing a priceless smile on their face at the end of their service! Even outside the salon, we love to make people feel beautiful! We had an amazing opportunity recently to spread our love for a friend who was going on a mission trip to La Vega, Costa Rica.
We were able to donate haircutting kits with scissors, combs and hair care products to treat a special group of ladies to a spa night! La Vega is a very small rural town where a lot of the women and children had never had the opportunity to get pampered and get their hair done. The ladies on the mission trip were able to give massages, paint nails, give jewelry, soaps, and luxurious body products! We love that we've been able to bring happiness outside of the walls of our salon and give the gift of beauty to a well-deserving group of La Vega ladies.
We are so happy to have been able to reach these beautiful ladies and put a smile on their face! It lets us know that we chose the right industry to be in. Check out these amazing photos to see their bright smiles!
Have you noticed after getting highlights your hair eventually loses that shine it had when you left the salon? Do you have hard water at home? Or live by the city where air quality is worse? Does your hair turn more gold/yellow after a while?
All of these factors can be assisted by using a violet toning shampoo and conditioner. Violet tones are often used to combat brassy or yellow/red tones by making them cooler. Although violet shampoo can be used on any hair color, the biggest benefit is on blondes. Blonde hair can be easily tainted by hard water, or pollution in the environment that eventually can leave hair a bit dull, and yellow. By using violet toning shampoo and conditioner it can take away dullness, and prolong the life of highlights with weekly use.
These toning shampoos and conditioners aren't just for color treated hair, either. Violet tones can breathe new life and vibrancy into natural blonde hair to give it more dimension and shine than you ever thought possible!
What better place to get your toning shampoo and conditioner than from the authorities on blonde, balayage, and so much more than Sunlights Balayage? That's right - we now have our VERY OWN toning line in Violet + Frost!
Specially formulated by the Balay Lama herself, Candy Shaw, Violet + Frost are designed to neutralize brassy tones, add brightness and shimmer to both virgin and color treated hair, and even restore the pH balance of your hair! Even better, VIOLET Grapeseed and Sunflower Toning Shampoo comes in both a convenient 12oz take-home version for your guests and a 32oz version exclusively meant for professional use (with a much higher dye load to go with it)!
