Now we would like to take a moment and recognize each one of our fabulous franchise owners and their families. To our ever growing Shear Mad-tastic Family - Here's to you!

Shear Madness Franchise Owners

Picture 1Brenda and Eduardo Morales: Our very first Shear Madness franchise owners, this couple opened their first salon in San Antonio TX at the Village in Stone Oak in San Antonio, TX in November 2012. Brenda and Eduardo have faithfully endured many of the early franchising growing pains with good humor and a willingness to learn. Their store has steadily seen growth despite the tough competition in their area. Their birthday parties have been a very successful addition to their haircutting business. We are so grateful for this caring, enthusiastic, and extremely hard working couple. Brenda currently manages the store while Eduardo assists however he can while also managing his business in Mexico. They live in San Antonio with their two children.

Elsy and Jorge Garcia : Owners of the Shear Madness at the Forum in San Antonio, TX, this couple just moved to the United States from Monterrey, Mexico. Opening their first Shear Madness location while moving their family and and enrolling 4 children in school was challenging - but worth the effort.

Their store has been converted completely from a previous children's hair salon into a fantastic Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids!
