Shear Faith Salon Team
Sandy Fain



God has honored me to be the fearless leader of this amazing team! I have been a stylist for over 30 years.  I love my job!  I am privileged to work with an amazing group of stylists, and other technicians here at Shear Faith.  Even though I've been in the business for years, I still learn from the younger ones.  We are always evolving in education and trying new ideas to expand on the services we offer.

I am married to a wonderful man named Darrell. He is my partner in life and business.  We have three daughters, two sons in law and three little grandsons that we call our grand monsters.  They call us Nonna and Dah.  Life is good!

Tabi Uremovich



I started my journey in this industry in 2004.  I've worked with my mother, Sandy, for most of my career.  My husband, Bob, and I got married in Townsend the summer of 2006 and had our son, Wyatt, in 2013.  He is a little athlete and keeps us busy with baseball and wrestling.  I was born and raised here in Blount County, but was able to see the world while serving in the United States Air Force.  I love working with my mother and the rest of our team at Shear Faith!  My passion is helping people find and accept their inner beauty and self-confidence.

Judy Davis - Nail Technician


Nail Technician

I have had my business, The Nail Boutique, for 23 years.  I love doing nails.  My customers are all like family.  I do acrylics, manicures and pedicures.  I do not use drills and my customers receive their own files and buffers for sanitation purposes.  I love working at Shear Faith Salon.  Everyone is so friendly and I love the Christian atmosphere.  I have been married 41 years to my wonderful husband, Joe.  We have two grown men, Adam and Aaron.  My contact number is 865-924-7009.

Angel Stinnett-Locklear



I am a native of Blount County.  I have been a hair stylist for 26+ years.  Pixie cuts are my jam!

Working at Shear Faith is shear joy because of the loving people I work with and the NO drama environment.

I enjoy doing hair because it gives me such a sense of accomplishment to make others feel good about themselves.

Lavette Scalf - Massage


Massage Therapist

Hello! I am a licensed massage therapist.  My work career started with various unfulfilling jobs.  This all changed after discovering massage therapy, where I received relief for my back and hip pain due to scoliosis.  I had to learn to do this for others!  This led me to Winter Haven, FL, where I enrolled in massage therapy school.

That was 21 years ago and I have not stopped since!  I have studied Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Healing Touch to offer my clients pain relief using a gentler, hands-on experience.  I love helping people get back to a better quality of life.  

My work is sacred to me.  Won't you let me help you feel better?

Tiffany Ricketts



Hi! I'm Tiffany. I have been a licensed esthetician since 2015.  I was born and raised in Blount County.  Skincare was instilled in me from childhood.  I grew up playing with all of my mama's pink tubes, trays and compacts.  I still don't think she has ever gone to bed without washing her face. . . or her dishes!

Services that I'm most passionate about are:

  • Skincare

  • Facials

  • Body Treatments

  • Dermaplaning

  • Waxing

  • Peels

  • Specialty Massage

Aside from skincare, the things I treasure most are my family and faith.  I have been blessed to be married to my husband and friend, David, for 28 years and we have three amazing children, Amber, Ramsey and Hayden.  I love to express my creativity through baking, farmer's markets and painting.  In my free time, you will find me with my toes in the Little River in the beautiful Smoky Mountains, camping or at the ballpark cheering for our WB Governor!

It is a pleasure to serve and create a welcoming, relaxing and memorable experience that leaves you feeling rejuvenated, restored and renewed.
