My name is Dan Sheahan. I am the co-owner of PRESS and this is my first blog, hello cyberspace! I’d like to thank our loyal guests for your business and referrals. And a bigger thanks to our talented team of hairdressers – who’ve served over 22,000 guests.
I want to share a brief introduction about my background and how I’ve contributed to the inception of PRESS Men’s Hair Salon.
I’m an ordinary man with a secret obsession for men’s grooming services and products. Growing up with a father who’s the epitome of the metro man of his time, he has permanently rubbed off on me. I have vivid memories of my dad prepping me for school each morning. Parting my hair perfectly and caking on the hairspray and other unknown products. I will admit, he has forever set the standard and made a metro man out of me. Since the days of puberty, I tried so many products, looking to find the one that best fits my needs. Let’s just say I’m still searching. Thanks a lot dad!
Growing up in St. Louis, I spent the first years of my childhood shooting hoops and playing street hockey. In high school, I moved to Arizona and eventually attended Arizona State University, majoring in Broadcast Journalism. My dream was to become an ESPN Sports Anchor. As luck would have it, that dream took a minor detour. After college, I returned home and started a finance career at Boeing, an aerospace company that instilled in me a new passion for airplanes (that’s a whole story in itself). A few years later, I returned to school and received a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Webster University. Summer of 2008, I accepted a relocation package too good to turn down and took the leap of faith towards Southern California. After a few years of living at the beach, I met love of my life -Vaan. Now I’m a proud husband and father of two beautiful girls.
I believe that my obsession for men’s grooming combined with Vaan’s superior hair-cutting expertise, education and artistic background makes us a great team. I love Southern California, my family and PRESS. I’m definitely here to stay. We truly appreciate your business- thank you!
I look forward to checking-in, connecting with you and sharing more about us-
