Rising Stars: Meet Shannon Moton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shannon Moton.

Hi Shannon, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
At the early age of ten, I knew that the hair industry had to be a part of my life. I knew either going to school to do hair or being in the hair industry was my calling. In high school, I begged my mom to send me to North Technical High School. In 2006, I got my wish and thanked her for it. However, due to personal reasons I was not able to graduate. After having my daughter in 2009, I choose to going back to cosmetology school another try. Once again, it did not work out the way I wanted to or need to. I had felt so defeated. However, I never lost my passion for doing hair. Around 2016, I came up with idea of creating my own hairline for ladies that had a hard time find the perfect hair extensions. It took me years of failing and trying over and over again. However, in 2021 Intensity Hair Co was created.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it has not been a smooth road at all. The main struggle I had was losing my mom in 2018 due to cancer. She is one of the main reasons I choose to start my own hairline.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I specialize in providing women with hair extensions that they deserve. I also specialize in help women take care of their hair while wearing hair extensions. I am known for going above and beyond for my customers because without them I would not be where I am today. I am most proud of how far I have came with my business and how many people my business has touched in these past couple of months. What sets me apart from other people in my industry is that I have the knowledge of the hair industry and personal experience.

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
Yes, that it’s always good to be safe.
