Jess Shelton

Get to know me

Meet Jess – Founder of Whitefox Styling

Jess’s passion to create amazing hair started in 2011.
Her rigorous, continued education has taken her all over the country to attend courses and obtain multiple certifications to become a Master Stylist, Extension Specialist, and Educator.

Jess has received inspiration from the nation’s top educators, mentors, and salons to bring the very best to Amarillo.

Wanting to be surrounded by like-minded and ambitious stylists, Jess decided to take the plunge and open Whitefox Styling in 2019, hand-picking her dream team. She takes pride in making sure advanced education is in place on a monthly basis, along with offering and providing top-of-the-line hair care products & styling tips to uphold the health and integrity of the hair of her salon’s guests.

Jess created a space where guests feel truly listened to and completely comfortable. Whitefox Styling is a space where stylists and guests truly feel welcome and love to be a part of – a beautiful place where the energy, positivity, and authenticity radiate and fill the spirit of each person.

Her passion for extension artistry has blossomed. “The opportunity to create true confidence in someone and allow them to see themselves in a whole new light gives me chills. Every woman deserves to feel absolutely stunning”.

Jess enjoys being creative and loves fashion, interior design, and art. When she is not running her dream salon, Jess enjoys spending time with her husband, Josh, and adorable little daughter, Charlie Jane. They love their two dogs – Ella and Ruby as well as their mischievous little kitten Scotty Pippen.

She loves comedies & unsweetened green tea. She’s not a big coffee drinker, but when she is in the mood for a little shake-up, her go-to would be an iced caramel latte, add sweet cream foam!

Jess welcomes you to come experience luxury hair at WHITEFOX Styling!

Lived-in Color, Balayage + Extensions

Lauren Montgomery

Get to know me

Meet our sweet & incredibly talented, Lauren Montgomery.

She was raised in Dalhart, TX where she met her other half, Ulises. They have a sweet and spunky little girl named Kendall who keeps them on their toes and loving life with her!

Some fun things about Lauren, (or as we call her, Lo) include her quirky obsession with fruit roll ups and her love for weird comedies. One of her favorite things do is gather a bunch of snacks and have movie nights with her family.

She has a strong relationship with God so we asked what her favorite Bible verse would be…

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ”

To say Lo loves hair would be an understatement.
She is meticulous and detail oriented. “If it’s not perfect it’s not right.”
She wants to know what it is that YOU as her guest wants to achieve with their hair goals so she can strive to make those hair dreams come true.
Her love for this line of work comes from the smile on my guests face before they leave our salon!

Chief of Operations

Lauren Tice

Get to know me

Meet Lauren, also known as Tice, our Chief of Operations.

Tice grew up right here in Amarillo, TX and contrary to popular belief, she is NOT in hair school!

Jess may be the heartbeat and visionary behind WHITEFOX, but Tice is the veins that makes sure everything is operating as it should be as one whole system. We value her dearly!

She attends West Texas A&M University where she is majoring in Strategic Communications and on track to graduate in December of 2022. She has an open mind and heart to wherever life takes her after graduation!

Her taste in music is chaotic as her love for One Direction is unmatched, but she’s also a sucker for 90’s alternative rock.
When Tice is not at the salon or buried in school work, she enjoys relaxing and spending time with her loved ones.
