MEET THE TEAM

Paula Lindsay

Owner, Master Stylist

Paula opened The Leading Edge Salon in 1987

Her motto on beauty is “believing in yourself every day” no matter what!

She loves caring for people and making someone feel great about themselves. For her, being in a position to make someone’s day, is awe inspiring and she’s on a mission to do things differently than other salons. She strives to be an example of integrity to her guests and be the best roll model she can be to her team. She loves and appreciate the relationships and trust that she has established with her guests over the years.

By focusing on experience, dedication, and integrity, Paula has taken the Leading Edge to a place of unequivocal quality. She has worked to create a team, a family, a collective group of individuals that are of one mind, one purpose, and one mission with shared core values. She admires her team and how they can make someone’s day with just a touch and a smile and believes they are truly living the life as Daymakers!

The Leading Edge is not just a hair salon, it’s an experience!
