Darleen Gage has been the owner of Shear Pleasure since 1984.Darleen began her education at Lakeview Elementary School and then moved on to St. Domonic Parochial to achieve her junior high school education.Her grandmother began the family legacy with her four children, and seven of her eleven grandchildren, and many of their cousins entering the beauty industry.Darleen's uncle was the dirst in the family to open his own salon and in future years may other salons and beauty schools followed.
When she was only seven years old, Darleen began frequently visting her uncle's salon where she became intrigued by his salon's environment.The energy, enthusiasm, and beauty that permeated from that salon created an aura of intrigue and desire that directed Darleen's creative talents right into the heart of the industry.Through the years to come, as many of her peers pondered over marriage, children, and homemaking, Darleen dreamed about the challenge of becoming an artist, an educator, and a career woman.
The family moved to a suburb of Houston, Texas where Darleen completed her high school education.She was awarded two different beauty schaolarships but elected to attend Continental Pivot Point Academy.Upon graduation in 1975, she began her training with a very progressive and successful area salon.It was not long before she recognized the great gulf between here school education and the actual on-the-job experience.This realization compelled her to pursue the advanced education and experience that would allow her to become the accomplished professional she envisioned.
The following is a list of the many certificates of achievement that Darleen has received over the years, exclusive of the many shows and classes which were not certificated:
In 1975, Darleen married Daniel Gage, who was also a hairstylist.
In 1976, they opened their first salon and Darleen became a member of NHCA.

After seventeen years of marriage, Darleen and Daniel now have three children, two girls and a boy.
