B Imaginative
Growing up creative, Shonti Conner literally "went back to her artistic roots." After a real estate stint, she switched careers and interned with a famous celebrity stylist who mentored her on the intricacies of coloring and cutting.

Before finding freddie b, Shonti put her shears to work at another salon. As a colorist, she puts her imagination to work with multihued locks. She also thrives and excels at the challenge of color correction.

Working with models side-by-side at hair shows brings out her fun and funky side. With precision haircuts, Shonti's meticulous attention to details is at the forefront. "I am all about making sure someone has the right style to go with his or her look. It's all in the details," she says.

"I've always loved glamor and retro," said Holly, describing her funky and feminine forte.

Holly has always been fascinated with the chic look of the roaring 40s and 50s. Think red lips, cat eyes, long eyelashes, curls and victory rolls reminiscent of those decades.

Holly brings this boldness and adventuresome streak with her to Freddie B Salon, as she transforms clients including brides with her retro brand of styling, vibrant color and sexy make-up. She also goes for the natural beachy look - a "must" in this coastal town.

She said, "Clients are like family to me - I listen and show I care about them a lot. I am artistic and creative but I also want my clients to feel good about themselves."

If creativity is the mother of invention, Luke is a very close relative. 

“Precision cuts are my jam,” says the Simi Valley native. Pixie, short, angular cuts,  hair color, name it and Luke can go to town and tackle it like it’s nobody’s business. He has an aunt to thank and credit for his intro into the hairstyling world. “Hanging out at her house and seeing no limits to creativity really influenced this career choice,” he says.

A hairstylist and barber in one, Luke really relishes the relationship part of the business and how he is able to affect people positively. A rare privilege is how he also describes it. “I love seeing them leave happier than when they came in,” he says. “And I also love doing the hair of entire families and making dad look as sharp as mom and the kids, or vice versa.”

When asked about his generation and emerging hairstyling trends such as shaved and undercut designs, he says, “There’s a lot of room for self-expression these days. I’m seeing a generation with some sense of creative rebellion.”

From her earliest memories, Kathy has had a fascination with hair. In fact, her grade 2 report card reads, Kathy "would do well to focus on her studies and not on the little girls hair in front of her." She grew up playing hairdresser, styling all of her dolls hair, then moving on to friends hair throughout school.

After moving to Los Angeles from Canada, she pursued and fulfilled a lifelong dream of working with Paul Mitchell. With JPMS, She was a color educator, trainer and Director of education, working alongside her mentors in the beauty industry. Eternally grateful for this experience, Kathy has also worked in film and television. She's truly passionate about sharing the love of hair to her fellow stylists.

Kathy loves to share all of her geeky hair knowledge with everyone to educate you on the how's and why's of your particular hair and to ensure all your questions are answered. One of her favorite things to do is haircolor. She loves to create the perfect color for you. In her words " taking you to your NATURAL color!"

“From the age of six, I remember following my parents around as they gave massages,” says Fernando, whose parents were also practicing massage therapists back in their native Mexico.

The early exposure to the craft paved the way for Fernando’s career choice. From the time he came to the U.S., he dedicated himself to finishing masssage school and getting his license. 

It could be his “people personality” and his innate desire to help too. “I just knew in my heart I wanted to do it,” he states. “And clients have said they could feed off of my positive energy.”

Outside massage therapy, Fernando finds his energy in running. He explains, “Running for me is spiritual, like meditation.”

FroM makeup before skincare, until Shanon made the connection that it's really skincare before makeup. This realization came after receiving her first facial at 8 years old! She has grown up in salons, surrounded by family who are in the beauty industry. As a 22 year veteran of the industry, she has a special love for skincare as well as waxing.

That first facial experience led to a lifelong love of skincare. One of her favorite parts of esthetics is teaching her younger clients how to take great care with their skin & skincare, to prevent any premature effects on their skin. Shanon is a firm believer that health from the inside is paramount to change any skin type and issues. And she's happy to share all of her knowledge with you. Her motto: good, life long skin care = life long, good skin health.

Shanon also takes great care when waxing her clients to make the experience comfortable & painless. "You're already done", "wow, that didn't hurt at all" are what she hears after her waxing sessions.

A facial with Shanon will leave your skin feeling its absolute best and you'll be sent home with lots of information on healthy at home skincare tips.
