I really enjoy volunteering our time and services to help promote the film industry here in the Tampa Bay area.

Dawn Shannon’s Intuition Salon & Spa will be donating their services for the fifth year in a row to the Sunscreen Film Festival being held April 28th through May 1st in St. Petersburg, Florida. Each year, Dawn Shannon provides hair and makeup for the celebrities attending the festival as well as models who add an air of Hollywood flair to the event. This year is no exception with Shannon joining together with Marina, the owner of ARTpool, a local vintage fashion store, who will be donating the outfits for the models.

“Dawn Shannon has been supporting the Sunscreen Film Festival as a celebrity hair stylist for several years and has worked with a variety of artists. Occasionally, celebrities can have challenging personalities and Dawn always works well with them,” said Tony Armer, Founder of the Sunscreen Film Festival.

Having worked with celebrities such as Kelly Preston, George Takei, Justin Hayward and others on photo shoots, magazine covers, videos, personal appearances and award winning documentaries, Dawn Shannon loves to share her beauty expertise.

“This is one of my favorite things to do! I love working with celebrities and film festivals,” said Shannon. “Film is like fashion—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. Besides, I really enjoy volunteering our time and services to help promote the film industry here in the Tampa Bay area."

Since opening her first Intuition Salon & Spa in Clearwater, Shannon has been an active member of the Tampa Bay community and her business has continued to expand with a second location in St. Petersburg. This expansion resulted in a nomination for a Momentum Award in 2015 and spurred the launched of a new website for her business.
