about mimi lee

In the 6th grade, Mimi’s best friend ranked 2nd in the state tennis championships. Every time she had a tennis match, Mimi got to leave school early to french-braid her best friend’s hair because her mom didn’t know how to. These early moments of being an on-set hairstylist made Mimi realize that creating beauty and instilling confidence brought her unmatched joy.

From apprentice to mentor
Mimi moved back to Atlanta after years of training in LA and New York, taking all she learned from her mentors at Vidal Sassoon, Arrojo, Wella, Aveda, and Davines back with her. Inspired by her mentors to guide others and lead with creativity, she took on roles as an instructor at the Paul Mitchell Academy and Sebastian Professional. Since then, Mimi has worked her way from being a creative director at a salon to opening Shear Love in 2011. Her work has been seen in the New York Times. At Shear Love, Mimi continues to be an educator, philanthropist and advocate for an eco-conscious lifestyle.

about the team

Sara consistently had temporary color in her hair since the 1st grade to match her mood. The more she discovered self-expression and creativity with hair styling, the more she related it to painting and drawing - her favorite forms of art.

“I think art is what lead me to hair. It's just another medium for me to use. Color theory goes hand-in-hand with art so hair coloring is just fun for me!

Color is Sara’s specialty. Whether it’s developing fashionably-colored tresses at the salon or dabbing paint on canvas at home, her enthusiasm for color theory and painting brings technicolor dreams to reality for clients who want to express themselves with vibrant hair.

"I was given the opportunity at a young age to help stylists with clients at a hair salon. It was then I knew that this is what I wanted to do. It made me happy to see how stylists were able to make clients smile by a simple blow dry!"

Trained in french style and precision cutting, Sossy is passionate about hairstyling as she is about people she works with.  With an attentive personality to match, she specializes in her ability to cut, style, and color different textures of hair.

"My aunt was a model and she took me to my first hair trade show when I was 9. Watching her transform into this magical creature with colorful hair (my aunt didn't have any hair) blew my mind! From that moment on this was where I felt I belonged."

Hair extensions and coloring are Tinnie's specialties. With clip-ins, wigs, and ponytails,  Tinnie loves giving people different looks without making drastic changes to their own hair. You can also find Tinnie completely in the zone at the salon creating custom colors during the process of hair coloring.

Aside from exquisitely styling hair at Shear Love, Tinnie is an aspiring art director who curates art exhibitions and installations.
