Celebrity Stylist Joins Volunteers at the Annual Sunscreen Film Festival 

(CLEARWATER, Fla.,)  April, 2013 — Local Celebrity Stylist, Dawn Shannon, owner of Intuition Salon and Spa in Clearwater, is once again volunteering her expertise at the Annual Sunscreen Film Festival by providing models, arranging for and coordinating designer clothes and providing hair and make-up services for each of the major Sunscreen events being held this year.

On Thursday April 19th Dawn and her team provided glamorous models, hair and makeup for the opening night Red Carpet event as well as the after party at NOVA event space. On Friday, April 20th her team will be presenting a “Tea Time” fashion show at the VIP reception at PUSH Ultra Lounge.  And on Saturday April 21st there will be model presenters for the awards ceremony.

“I think Film and Fashion go together very well,” said Shannon. “They are both visual, both have motion … and I just can’t imagine what films would be like without costume designers and professional, artistic hair and make-up people!   So, we feel very comfortable at Sunscreen and really enjoy volunteering our time and services to help promote Film in the Tampa Bay area.”

This is the second year Shannon has volunteered and her staff and services to Sunscreen – last year supervising the Fashion, Hair & Makeup at the Sunscreen Events which were held at the Dali Museum and NOVA 535.

“We always try to do at least four or five volunteer activities every year, to give back to the community and help support worthwhile causes.” added Shannon.  “Last year we did Sunscreen, then a fund-raising fashion show for a local Youth Group,  another for a Human Rights/Fair Trade Group, and another event for Breast Cancer Survivors.”

Although she is a Master Stylist and a Master Colorist with 20 years of professional experience and a long list of Celebrity Clients,  Dawn is still a bit hesitant to use the title “Celebrity Stylist” on herself.

“Yes, I’ve done hair for a quite a few Film and TV personalities whose names you would instantly recognize” she says. “But they keep coming back to Intuition not only because they are very happy with the work we do and our excellent service, but because we always remain professional and discrete.  We protect their privacy and try to give them a nice, relaxing salon and spa experience where they can truly ‘let their hair down’  and not have to be “on” while they are with us – which in itself can be a truly rare and valued experience for them.   We also don’t ‘name drop’ in our advertising … although we do keep some autographed magazine covers of our celebrity clients on display in the shop … with their approval, of course!”
