Meet the Founder

Hi, my name is Bridget Schlueter! I have a deep passion for the beauty industry and all it has to offer, which fuels my desire to connect with people and help them discover their inner beauty.

Throughout my journey, I’ve had the opportunity to build my dream company alongside my dream team. I’m both a licensed cosmetology teacher and a licensed cosmetologist. My career took me from being a Level 6 stylist and educator in my own company to becoming a former L’Oreal professional products division brand educator. I’ve also cherished my experiences working in the spa setting and as a spray tan technician with our sister company, BodiBronze Sunless Spa, located in Champaign, IL.

Stepping back from working directly with clients was a significant change for me, but it led me to my true calling, passion, and love — coaching my service providers. Now, I devote myself to helping them become the best versions of themselves, all while ensuring we deliver a top-notch experience to our guests.

If you want your hair to grow longer, we recommend a small trim every 6 to 12 weeks. Choose Shear Excellence Salon, one of the most loved hair salons in IL. 

How often should I color my hair?
