About Jessica

Jessica Shambo

My name is Jessica, I am a full-time wife and mother of two amazing little boys. Born and raised in Ballston Spa, I enjoy seeing the town continue to boom with new businesses while maintaining its natural heritage.

I have been a licensed professional hair stylist for 14+ years and continue to educate myself and stay up to date with the latest trends and fashions. I have trained in NYC for L'Oreal Professionel, Wella and Schwarzkopf to name a few.

Once out of cosmetology school, I worked in Saratoga as a stylist for many years and gained a great clientele and following. In 2008 we built an addition on our home and integrated a private salon in which I continued to work from as well as pull double duty as a stay at home mother. I was fortunate to have the majority of my clientele follow me, and appreciate their support and loyalty throughout the years! As the business continued to grow and the need for a larger space was evident, it was decided to move into a new building where we can continue that growth in the coming years. I'm excited to now have the opportunity to meet many new people and experience being a small business owner in downtown Ballston Spa!

About Katie

Katie Hodgson

My passion for hair started when I was about 4 years old. I was that annoying kid that always wanted to do my parents friend's hair any time they stopped over for a visit.

As I was slated to start my fourth semester of college at a small school in Southern VT, I realized I wasn't following my true dream. I decided to enroll in Cosmetology School, moved to Burlington VT, and started classes two weeks later. After school, I completed an apprenticeship program at a wonderful salon called John Thibault and Co. which would later merge with another well respected salon to form what is now known as Indigo. It has since been voted the top salon in the area every year since their existence. While there, I had access to work alongside some very talented professional stylists and at the same time, became a certified Goldwell colorist.

In 2007, I moved to NY. For a short time afterword, I continued to work for a small salon in Saratoga. I have since had two absolutely amazing children and in the years following, I've had the privilege of continuing to do hair from home as well as spending time with my 2 girls. Truly, the best of both worlds.

In the fall of 2014, I was introduced to Jessica and was given the opportunity to head back into a wonderful, comfortable salon setting and help promote and build clientele.

I started at Canvas Hair Salon on January 2, which happened to be my 19th anniversary of the start of my career.
