Hello, I’m Deborah Cohen, and the owner/manager of Shear Perfection Salon & Spa. In November of 2017 I will have had the privilege of being in Mount Joy for 30 YEARS! Wow, I’m still astounded by how the years go by. I started out going to college with a psychology major, then decided to work for several attorneys, and finally ended up in this wonderful industry. What a trip, and my clients often joke that I became a psychologist anyway! 🙂 It is a special bond when you find a hair designer or technician that you connect with, that you trust with how you look, and your personal life details. I consider it such a blessing to have had so many beautiful people come into my doors and my life through the years. You are amazing and have taught me so much. Thank you. I know the excellent designers/therapists I have on board as staff feel the same way. We all so appreciate you and your loyalty and business, and we look forward to our future years together. It is a gift to be able to make you look and feel more relaxed, happy, de-stressed, and beautiful.

My favorite specialty? Definitely LASH EXTENSIONS!!! I have now been doing them about 10 years, and I love the way they transform a client’s look from basic to a beautiful glamour, and save so much time in the morning to look great. I think I get as excited as my lash clients do about their new look!


First of all, I’d like to thank you for taking time to check out our website as well as read about myself! My name is Allison and I’ve been at Shear Perfection Salon & Spa as a Massage Therapist for a year. I’ve grown to love my coworkers and most importantly; my clients! There is nothing I love more, as a Massage Therapist, than seeing my work right in front of my eyes and feeling soft tissue. I graduated from Lancaster School of Massage and I am excited to grow as a Massage Therapist and learn new modalities through Continuing Education. Outside of my workspace at the Salon, I am an aunt to the cutest niece and nephew, a lover at cooking and baking new things in the kitchen and a soon-to-be wife to my high school sweetheart. I cannot wait to meet you and work with you to the best of my abilities. So, come take a vacation on my table; your body will thank you!


Hi! My name is Rachel Newswanger and I am thrilled to be a part of the team at Shear Perfection. After attending The Lancaster School of Massage,  massage has personally impacted my life in such a positive way, and I am eager to be able to pass that on to others. In this day and age, getting an hour of pure relaxation is a rare gem, and truly a gift to be able to offer people. My interest lies in a Holistic approach to wellness, which in addition to massage includes: green smoothies, yoga and dance, loud music in the car (it counts as therapeutic), and yes…essential oils! Through massage I would love to partner with you in your own journey, whatever that may be.


Hi my name is Ellen but I also go by Ellie. Ever since I was 5, I told my mom that I wanted to be a Cosmetologist and that has never changed. I have lived in Maytown Pennsylvania my entire life. I attended Lancaster School of Cosmetology for both my cosmetology and esthetic licenses. In my free time, I love to spend time with my boyfriend, family, friends, and my three cats Cally, Luna, and Leo.

In the Salon, I love to do highlights, facials, body waxing, and makeup. I am also certified by Xtreme Lashes and Brazilian Blowout. I have also taken classes in speed waxing, babylights, triple threat makeup, and lash and brow tinting. I love helping my clients with their skin because I have very difficult skin myself.
