Shannon Talbert, Instructor

Santa Shannon is a second generation Santa Claus. His grandfather and great uncle were both Santas. Ever since the secret was revealed to him, he knew that being Santa was his calling.

Shannon is a Master Barber with nearly 20 years of experience and the proud owner of Talbert’s Barbershop & Beard Emporium in historic Ringgold, GA. He offers a traditional barber experience as well as specializing in beard care and maintenance. Shannon has a large clientele of Santas and is entrusted with maintaining their “Red Suit” look throughout the year.

Shannon is blessed to have a lovely and supportive wife Merriam and two wonderful boys, Braxton (15) and Harrison (10).  Merriam maintains their Christmas operations and sales of Santa accessories. And Braxton is a graduate of the Northern Lights Santa Academy and is excited to join the Christmas entertainment community. Harrison likes to run 5k races and is considering joining the family business in the future.

We are proud to welcome Shannon to our team of instructors this session!
