Shear Beauty salon


Small Beginnings


Shear Beauty is a newly-opened salon at 62 Westminster Ave in Portland, Maine. Although the salon is new, we have been around for twenty years as K's Traveling Hair Fashions!

Karen Paradis - Owner


Karen has been a licensed cosmetologist since 1992. As a single mom of three, she needed the flexibility a traveling business provided. She met clients’ needs by going to their homes, as well as styling brides and bridal parties, high School girls for proms, and women preparing for any special occasion. After many years of providing hair services here in the greater Portland area, Karen has been blessed with the opportunity to expand her home with a family-centered salon.
