Shear Excellence was opened in June of 2011 by Laura Dudek. Laura moved to Charlotte, NC from upstate NY in 2008 with dreams of opening her own salon. When the time came, she realized she needed something to stand out from the competition. Many women go to a salon to escape everyday stresses, and relax with a glass of wine as they get their hair done. The Charlotte market was a great opportunity to create the same concept for men. Dilworth, the perfect spot for this, is just outside of Uptown to avoid the parking hassle, yet on the way home for most clients.

Laura's husband, Matt, joined the Shear Excellence team a couple years after welcoming their first son in 2012. Although Matt does not cut hair, he has a passion for customer service and ensuring every single client is 110% happy when they walk out the door.

Shortly after their second son was born in 2014 they began looking at a second location in Ballantyne. The salon in Ballantyne Village opened in spring 2015. Even after adding another location, Matt and Laura's values remained the same: Satisfaction is the most important thing! Every client should be happy with his end result!

"We take pride and work very hard to make sure every client is satisfied. If for any reason you ever feel like you did not leave 110% happy please reach out to me directly: laura@shearexcellence.com."
