​Betty Lou:  

I am the owner of the Shear Talent with COLOR and have 50 years of experience in the beauty industry! My background includes teaching beauty school , I started with L'Oreal Professionnel as an educator and model-room coordinator for large hair shows. During my time with L'Oreal, which started in 1993, I spent time training new educators, teaching seminars and  doing private salon classes on basic color, corrective color and color techniques.

  I have worked here with the previous owner since 1993. I specialize in color, cutting, perming, styling and Shellac No-Chip manicures. I have a passion for my profession that isn't  fading any time soon! I love what I do, the stylists I work with, the people I meet, and I love making the world beautiful, one client at a time! I strive to make my salon a clean, warm, friendly and  inviting  for people to come--a place where everyone can feel at home!  We laugh, we cry, we hug, and we support each other in every way, both clients and stylists!  I hope you'll come check us out and give us a chance to make your day.


I joined the staff of Shear Talent with Color in December 2011 and couldn't be happier. Hair coloring, highlighting and hair cutting are my specialties! My experience covers a 28 year span, and I love it as much today as I did the day I graduated from beauty school. Aurora is my hometown. My life took a turn to Florida for 18 years, but  I am back and ready to roll!  I have  re-build my clientele but always have room for new clients. My Philosophy is my career is the same as in life: Treat every client the way I want to be treated. I believe every client is the opportunity to make a new friend, and I look forward to meeting you.

I have been doing hair for 18 years and nails for 20 years. I enjoy meeting new and exciting people, at every age. I love to do color, as well as perms, cuts and waxing. I specialize in waxing of the brows, facial, arms, legs and bikini area (female only).  My acrylic nails are hand sculpted, using no drills. I also enjoy doing manicures and CND Shellac No-Chip manicures. I always put my clients first and do my best to accommodate. Please come and see me!

I am a master barber/stylist with 39 years experience!  Clipper cuts, flat tops, kids cuts are a specialty of mine, though I also excel in hair coloring and perms!  Along with hair, I also enjoy doing facial waxing and pedicures, especially problem feet! Even with all of my experience, I always have room for new clients!  I am very outgoing and straight forward with my clients and love to send them out the door fresh smiling!  Hope to see you soon!
