Celebrity Stylist Joins Volunteers at the Annual Sunscreen Film Festival 

(CLEARWATER, Fla.,)  April, 2013 -- Local Celebrity Stylist, Dawn Shannon, owner of Intuition Salon and Spa in Clearwater, is once again volunteering her expertise at the Annual Sunscreen Film Festival by providing models, arranging for and coordinating designer clothes and providing hair and make-up services for each of the major Sunscreen events being held this year.

On Thursday April 19th Dawn and her team provided glamorous models, hair and makeup for the opening night Red Carpet event as well as the after party at NOVA event space. On Friday, April 20th her team will be presenting a "Tea Time" fashion show at the VIP reception at PUSH Ultra Lounge.  And on Saturday April 21st there will be model presenters for the awards ceremony.

“I think Film and Fashion go together very well,” said Shannon. “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!   So, we feel very comfortable at Sunscreen and really enjoy volunteering our time and services to help promote Film in the Tampa Bay area." 

This is the second year Shannon has volunteered and her staff and services to Sunscreen - last year supervising the Fashion, Hair & Makeup at the Sunscreen Events which were held at the Dali Museum and NOVA 535.

"We always try to do at least four or five volunteer activities every year, to give back to the community and help support worthwhile causes." added Shannon.  "Last year we did Sunscreen, then a fund-raising fashion show for a local Youth Group,  another for a Human Rights/Fair Trade Group, and another event for Breast Cancer Survivors."

Although she is a Master Stylist and a Master Colorist with 20 years of professional experience and a long list of Celebrity Clients,  Dawn is still a bit hesitant to use the title "Celebrity Stylist" on herself.

"Yes, I've done hair for a quite a few Film and TV personalities whose names you would instantly recognize" she says. "But they keep coming back to Intuition not only because they are very happy with the work we do and our excellent service, but because we always remain professional and discrete.  We protect their privacy and try to give them a nice, relaxing salon and spa experience where they can truly 'let their hair down'  and not have to be "on" while they are with us - which in itself can be a truly rare and valued experience for them.   We also don't 'name drop' in our advertising ... although we do keep some autographed magazine covers of our celebrity clients on display in the shop ... with their approval, of course!"

- Sunscreen Film Festival

Intuition Owner Dawn Shannon is named Director of Hair & MakeUp and the staff of Intuition Salon and Spa are contributing to the Sunscreen Film Festival by providing model hair for presentation of fashion, hair and makeup during two of the after parties - one at the Dali Museum and another at Nove 535. Dawn found and coordinated the fashion designers, models, stylists, makeup artists and photographers - as well as taking on several of the models herself, to help show how fashion and film work together to create a truly artistic experience for the average movie goer.

Nova 535 Event

Sunscreen Film Festival Board Member and Director of Events Lisa Mansel said,

"In April of this year, Dawn took on the post of 'Director of Hair and Make Up' for the Sunscreen Film Festival in downtown St. Petersburg.

Over the course of the festival, there were two big fashion shows that were incorporated into the overall event.

Dawn got the designers to contribute their clothes, got the models on board, arranged for her staff to do the hair and makeup and again, did a 100% professional and enthusiastic job."

Fashion and Arts Week

Intuition Salon and Spa is contributing to the Downtown Clearwater Renaissance by providing model hair for fashion shows during Clearwater's Fashion and Arts Week February 3rd - 6th in the Cleveland Street District, as well as participating in other ways.

Here's what Diane Stein of JOTO PR had to say about it ...

"The purpose of Fashion and Arts week is to help revitalize the Cleveland Street district through fashion, arts and cultural activities.

"Not only do the arts add beauty and excitement to an area, studies have shown the presence of aesthetics can significantly boost the economy of a neighborhood.

"Fashion and Arts Week will include a VIP reception at Water's Edge, a sample sale from designers including Craig Taylor and 10,000 Villages, fashion shows at System Productions, a film screening from the Sunscreen Film Festival, a ballet presented by the Guilfoil Ballet Theatre, street performers, musicians, an open air art show and more.

"All activities will be free of charge, with exception of the film screening and the ballet.We look forward to playing a role in the revitalization of our community just as much as we look forward to the event's sample sales!" -

Intuition also provided model hair for the last
