About Shannon

It seems that Shannon King was predestined to be a hair stylist. Born in Baltimore to parents who were both stylists, King grew up in the salon industry and, eager to follow in his parent’s footsteps, began working in Baltimore straight out of beauty school while attending Towson University for business.

Early in his career, Shannon became an educator, inspiring fellow Stylists to explore their creativity and build on their technical skills.Redken quickly recognized his talents as a trainer and his knack for performing and made Shannon a National Educator in 1998.

King was also one of an elite group of facilitators at The Redken Exchange in NYC. Shannon shared his cutting, finishing & barbering skills with Stylists across the US & Internationally for Redken, as well as participating in multiple Redken Symposiums.

From here, King moved into L’Oreal holding education positions corporately. First as an Education lead at Soft Sheen Carson, one of the largest textured hair care companys in the world with a very talented team of salon professionals and session artists to deliver world class education to salon professionals and consumers alike. Then to Global Director of education and training for Matrix, developing and delivering training to the 1600 educators supporting 57 countries around the world.
