THE SVS TEAM is passionate about making a personal connection with clients while supporting and encouraging each other and delivering the very best salon services possible.



Jennifer was born and raised in the Midwest. She has perfected her craft for over 20 years, specializing in razor cutting and multi-dimensional color techniques. 

Her dream of having her own salon became a reality in April of 2014, with a small space in downtown Port Royal. Creating a blended salon with commission stylists and studio suites. As the salon grew, we had to find a bigger and better space. Which led us to the Bellevue Business Park. Tucked back in the park, we saw ourselves as a hidden gem. This concept took like wildfire. It’s a private experience when you come to get your hair done, from where we are located to you and your stylist being in your own private room.

“With a welcoming team of professional stylists that truly love what they do, owning Shear Vintage is a dream that became a reality.”

Jennifer Fleming is a San Diego, CA native (no military relation).  She has a wonderful supportive husband. They share an 18-year-old handsome son and two fur pitty babies. She has over 10 years of cosmetology experience. 

Three reasons she became a stylist is because she dyed and cut all her baby doll’s hair as a kid, got tired of doing everyone’s hair for free and wanted to understand why her hair turned orange every time she bleached it blonde lol. 
Things that make me unique as a stylist is that I love cutting curly hair, fashion shades, Balayage and RED HEADS! Three things that new clients experience with me is I love to laugh, find the positive in everything and will pump you up to take on the world !
