Paige began her career in 1998 as a receptionist, after realizing her passion for the salon industry she completed a two year apprenticeship and received her cosmetology license. In October 2009 she pursued her dream of owning her own salon and purchased Design Studio East! Paige leads her team at Design Studio East with emphasis on working as a team and continuing their education to reach their highest potential.
As a stylist, Paige loves de-bulking coarse and or curly hair and creating flattering shape to this usually unruly hair type. She also loves to help those with fine and or thin hair to create volume and lift… as well as every hair type in between. She describes her work as her artistic outlet, and has a wonderful clientele who allow and trust her to do what she thinks is best. It flatters her to know that she has her guests trust and fulfilling to use her art to make people look and feel their best, as well as getting to know her guests and their families on a deeper level.
Paige has extensive education after attending several educational events over the years from Chicago to Las Vegas and most recently the Grand Rapids area. She is passionate about continuing her education as well as consistently encouraging her staff to as well. Trends change with each season and she believes it is our job as stylists to stay current on hair styling as well as new products that come out that are less damaging and more eco-friendly. Our Aveda hair care is made from 100% wind power, and our Loreal iNOA color line is ammonia free which Paige and her Design Studio East staff take pride in.
