Mary Wheeler

Artistic Designer
Building confidence in others is what I strive to do each day in the salon and it all starts with understanding each client’s individual needs. Creating a look that matches your lifestyle and also showing you how to maintain your hair at home. I specialize in all coloring techniques, woman’s cuts, men’s cuts and love doing big transformations. Continuing my education and always being up to date on the latest trends assures you will be walking out of the salon with a new outlook on the way you see yourself.

I just moved to East Texas from Kansas to be closer to family and I am fresh out of cosmetology school, but don’t let this fool you! Throughout school I have won two international cutting and coloring awards including ‘Sassoon Image of the Year’ and ‘Wella Next Generation artist’! Throughout 2018 I have traveled all across the United States performing runway shows at the Nations biggest beauty shows. I have been mentored by top professionals in the industry and I am beyond excited to start my journey in East Texas at Shear Decadence! I am Michaels personal assistant while I am learning all his tricks of the trade!

Rebecca Williams

Shampoo Assistant

I love working on natural hair and I have done weave, extensions, and certain braids on myself and others for over 20 years. 11 years ago I decided that I wanted to do hair professionally, but I put it aside to raise my family. I never gave up on that dream and I finally decided to go to school and get my license. I graduated February 2018. I'm very excited to embark on this journey and hopefully become a great stylist for many years to come.

Senior Creative Director
“I've lived in East Texas almost my whole life now! I had a passion for hair since I was little, but never thought about making it a career until I was around 20! When I started school, I fell in love with doing hair and my passion for it has continued to grow since then! Two of my favorite things to do are cuts and color. I'm so grateful to be able to live out this childhood dream of mine and interact with people every day!”
