Advisory Council Voting is Now Open

Each year, PBA Distributor Members can elect two (2) members to the Advisory Council.

Each Advisory Council has six representatives, and the terms are for three years. Two of these representatives’ terms will expire on August 31, 2024. The newly elected representatives will join their Council to represent the members-at-large of their membership section.

As set forth in the bylaws, the Advisory Council established a nominating committee to develop a slate of candidates for your consideration. Members were notified of the opportunity to be considered as a candidate for the Advisory Council via the PBA website, social media, and email communications. The Nominating Committee considered each applicant’s experience and skillset and is confident the final candidates are highly qualified to be part of your Advisory Council.

Salon Service Group | Springfield, MO

Shelby’s love for the beauty industry started early. She grew up in a barbershop and in salons where her family members worked. She was the first in her family to choose a four-year degree and the job offer she was most excited to receive after graduation was for an outside sales position with a distributor of professional salon products. Of her 30-year career in the beauty industry, more than half has been spent managing beauty stores, salons and spas. She has a true respect and admiration for all salon professionals. Her first experience with the PBA was an impactful one. She sat on a panel at a PBA event in 2019 and loved the opportunity to learn from others and the feeling of community at the event. In 2021 she was elected to the Distributor Advisory Council and then in 2023 became a member of the Board.

Salon Backbar | Canoga Park, CA

After graduating from Law school in 2008, the Great Recession had just begun, and Aaron was unable to get a job in the legal profession. Needing to earn money, Aaron started selling professional beauty products to salons and barbershops from the trunk of his car. Aaron’s mom’s garage in Los Angeles, was his first warehouse and where his distribution business launched off. Little did Aaron know that calling on salons and barbershops would lead to a distribution company servicing thousands of salons and barbershops. Through the years, operating Salon Backbar along with his brother and business partner David, Aaron has learned a lot about the professional beauty industry. Aaron is now at a stage in his life that he would like to use his experience and his legal background, to give back to an industry that has given him so much.

2024 marks Guy Lacey’s 31st year in the Pro channel.   He started his career working in IT and inventory control at Gene Juarez Salons in Seattle where he quickly fell in love.   He was raised the son of a single mom hairdresser and remembered how hard it was for her in the 70s to provide a living for her family doing hair and found a great opportunity to use his love of people and strength in math and communication to help hairdressers make a better living doing what they love.

Guy was promoted to Director of Purchasing shortly after, then retail development was added.  He gained great experience developing and marketing their private label line, identity1.  Guy left GJ after 20 years to work with Salon Services as he felt it was the right channel for him to influence more hairdressers.  He is now the VP overseeing education, customer care, IT, purchasing and distribution.  Guy is a beauty industry lifer.  This is his DNA.
