Meet Us

I began my cosmetology career in 2006 and quickly fell in love with cutting hair. I knew then that I wanted to open a salon and have a place where people could relax and take a break from the day. Charlotte was missing this niche for men. In June 2011, I opened the original Shear Excellence location in Dilworth.

In 2015 when the Ballantyne location opened, my husband, Matt, left his career to work alongside me. When we added this location we wanted to make sure we maintained our core values as a business: Satisfaction is crucial. Every man should leave the salon with a precision haircut, tremendous experience, and be more relaxed when he walked in the door!

As we expand Shear Excellence, we never want to lose sight of these values. In 2018, J.J. and Victoria (pictured right) joined our Shear Excellence family so we can remain just as dedicated at making sure our clients receive the very best experience available!

We take pride and work very hard to make sure every client is satisfied. If for any reason you feel like you did not receive our highest standard of service, please reach out to me directly at
