Our creative artists

Shane Mauldin, Co-Owner

As weird as it sounds, Shane Mauldin, co-founder and co-owner of Hush Studio Salon, never wanted to be a hairstylist. But after years of working in corporate America, Shane found himself sitting at lunch staring at an older version of himself, an unhappy looking businessman spending his lunch with a drink. Shane decided right then and there that wasn’t going to be him. He went back to his office and quit.

As Shane looked for a new path in life, his stylist friends encouraged him to check out their industry. He was apprehensive at first. Hair didn’t seem like the right fit. But, wow, was he wrong. After only one hair show, Shane was hooked. He discovered an industry that inspired and energized him like nothing else had before.

Shane saw that he could be his best self in an industry that combined beauty, art, business, and teaching, and he found his opportunity to build a future as a creative stylist, salon owner, and teacher.

Shane took that passion and inspiration and brought it to life with Hush Studio Salon. Now, he gets to live his dream and feel blessed every day as he works in the studio helping clients develop an image through beautiful hairstyles, mentoring other talented hair stylists, and living the wonderful life he didn’t know was always waiting for him.

Frankie Ryan, Co-Owner

Frankie never expected to grow up and become a hair stylist — even though there were obvious signs in his early childhood. His mother was a stylist, and Frankie could often be found playing with and styling the wigs she used for her clients.

That early interest in hair turned into a career and business later in Frankie’s life as he co-founded and co-owns Hush Salon Studio. Now, he still enjoys playing with hair. Frankie’s favorite part about being a stylist is watching a great haircut and style come together. He loves when clients are willing to trust him and let him make small changes to their cut to create a more beautiful, polished look.

Beyond the salon, Frankie spends time with the things he loves most: travel, music, movies, and of course, animals. Growing up on a farm in the midwest with a range of animals instilled a deep love for animals in Frankie, and you can usually find him spoiling his dog, Beastie.
