Owner / Stylist
My Name is Barbara Dallmer the owner of A Shear Distinction Hair & Spa Salon
I have been a hairdresser for 30 years starting my career early, always knowing that hair was me. I love the creative artsy side of the business. Hair has always been my passion there is nothing I dislike, challenges are good. My career started in New York where I was born raised and trained by some difficult hairdressers I might add which made me the hairdresser I am today. Moved to Wilmington in 1991 and love every moment here. Working many places here as most of my clients/family could tell you however, landing in my own business called A Shear Distinction, In which I am very proud of.
The name A Shear Distinction came about one day driving in my car wanting to have my own business some place that would be different from any other place I have ever been, (like having a small semi private place with a relaxing atmosphere) not being able to remember names that came to me and they would come to me of course while driving never hitting a red light to write it down, then A Shear Distinction came o me and I thought oh you won't remember this one either and sure enough I did and it stuck to me. A Shear Distinction has now been in business for 9 years and I would like to thank everyone for putting me where I am today because without my clients who are like family and my family, I would not be where I am right now. Oh and of course my talent. Being able to keep my prices reasonable is an indication of how much I care for my clients and new clients.
My motto for A Shear Distinction is: CHANGING THE WORLD ONE HEAD AT A TIME
As a business owner I will do my best to accommodate everyone with the warm welcoming atmosphere that we have at A Shear Distinction.
Certified Medical Esthetician
After many years as a professional make- up artist, I decided that I wanted to do more to treat the skin, rather than just ‘ mask’ it and thus began my career in esthetics. Upon graduating and becoming a licensed Esthetician and still feeling as though I could learn and do more, I continued my studies and training to become a certified Medical Esthetician, enhancing my scope of practice and enabling me to better assist my clients in their skin care pursuits. I also hold certifications in eye lash extensions and air brush spray tanning because they are just plain fun. I am ecstatic to be a part of the A Shear Distinction team and can’t wait to help our clients achieve their skin care goals.
