Welcome to A Shear Thing, a full-service salon in Shawnee, Kansas, where you’ll never walk out feeling less than fabulous.

A Shear Thing offers exceptional personal care, high-quality Redken products, and superior fashion-driven services for men, women and teens. From hair design, dimensional color and Great Lengths Hair Extensions, gel and acrylic nails, waxing services, special occasion styles, manicures, pedicures and more, you’ll find it here—along with a professional staff dedicated to making you look your personal best.

Salon Owner Becky Weir is a nationally recognized stylist and one of only a few Certified Redken Color Specialists in the greater Kansas City area. She trains and mentors each staff member. She also teaches stylists at salons in the Metro area, as well as across the nation.

A labor of love, owner Becky Weir opened the salon doors 13 years ago with only one other staff member. "I opened on prom day, April 26, 1997,” she says. “I remember the day well because I had all these appointments for up-dos, and the night before, I was literally scrubbing floors until dawn to get ready. Then I went home, showered, and put in a full day."

The salon now has a staff of 20. In December 2005, long-time colleague and friend Ken Parker joined Becky as co-owner at A Shear Thing. The powerhouse duo had big hopes and dreams for growth. Tragically, Ken Parker passed away in August 2006 while on a fishing trip in Colorado. His spirit and vision are still guiding forces for Becky and the staff as they move forward to a dynamic future.
