SALON BACKSTAGE

Salon Backstage was established in December 2016 by Stephen and Caroline Segler.

To focus on his passion for the craft, Stephen opened a shop where stylists would share common values of artistic creation, professionalism, and of focus on the client’s image.  His personal history leads the vision of the environment, and the character of stylists who set up their business here.

Tradition

The above photo was captured in 1927 in San Angelo, Texas, Stephen’s hometown.  It depicts his forebears in the business, making Stephen a third-generation barber.  In this cherished picture is his grandfather, Bid Murray, second barber from the front, and great-grandfather, Charles Murray, at the fourth chair.  Also shown is great-uncle Sid – a tailor by trade – in the back of the shop.


Meet the Talent

Stephen Segler

Owner / Stylist / Color Wizard

The man, the myth, the legend.  The Grand Poobah, and the owner of this clubhouse.

No, Stephen didn’t write this, he is too busy doing hair.

Stephen earned his barber license at age 21 and worked for a year alongside his friend and mentor, Anthony, and Anthony’s father Antonio.  As a skilled keyboardist, he also played music with local artists in the evening around town.  While performing locally, an offer come to join a touring national act (Neal McCoy), and he went on the road with the band for the next 14 years.

With the road now in the rear view mirror, he put away the keyboards and looked to his barbering roots.  Naturally he returned to Texas – and his buddy Anthony – to refresh his training and hone the skills.  That challenge met, he followed his heart and wife Caroline here to the Old Pueblo.

After working for ten years at other salons for other owners, he desired to open his own salon representative of both his family heritage and his career in music: A fusion of the behind-the-scenes essence of the hard work and glamour.  His vision for the business provides a coveted pass BACKSTAGE, where the magic is created.
