Sheralee Leitner

Instructor. Stylist. Key.


Sheralee Leitner was born directly into the industry through her family’s salons in Winfield, KS. Now, with more than 18 years of experience behind the chair and working numerous local fashion shows, charity events and photo shoots, she’s a mainstay stylist and instructor in Dallas TX  since 1995, loyal to 3 reputable salons; Sean David Salon, Johnny  Rodriguez the Salon and Jamieson Jewel Salon. Sheralee opened her own studio Jonathan Dean Salon in 2014, named for her nephew.

She commented with such enthusiasm this year after working backstage side by side with the most sought after editorial hairdresser Kevin Murphy at White.Box here in Dallas

Working with Kevin and the team I knew I had found my home and where I truly feel my passion belongs. It was the height of my career by far!!!
