About Our Team

    Owning a hair salon was part of a dream and goal that was set years ago by two stylists who love the beauty industry. Always striving to be better and soaking in as much knowledge as possible, Marbella Haws and Shannon Wickenden set a goal to own their own salon. After years of saving and really diving in to the business of hair as well as the technicality of hair, that goal was reached! Paradigm A Hair Salon opened its doors on August 2nd, 2014. With a strong and talented team of stylists, Paradigm is ready to provide the luxury and comfort that the owners dreamed it would. Here is a snapshot of our talented team:

Bio: Marbella is a passionate colorist and hair designer. Having been taught by Redken’s best educators like Sam Villa, David Stanko, Kris Sorbie, and Hugo Urias has given Marbella a great advantage in the beauty industry and enhanced her technical skill. "Seeing your guest's smile, thatsmile, the one that says you made their day better and they love their look, that's a great feeling. Making people feel happy is why I love my career." Continuing education is essential for continuity and growth. Traveling to the Redken Exchange in NYC, Redken Symposium in Las Vegas and countless other courses and events around the country help to refine her skill. Being a makeup artist, it’s a skill that continuously changes and recently Marbella has pushed to enhance her profession by becoming a Certified Makeup Artist with SeneGence. A passion for hair and beauty and an affinity for community involvement has made this more than a career choice; it’s made it a lifestyle.

Ali Malvini - Stylist 

Bio: I love Meridian! I was born and raised in Idaho, but I started my career in Cosmetology while living and working in Oregon. I have been a licensed Cosmetologist since 2007 and specialize in hair design and Redken color; short and long precision haircuts and updo's. I am Hair Extension certified and I offer facial waxing and brow tinting as well.

Being a hairstylist never felt like my job, it has really been my passion. Everyday I have the opportunity to be an artist, a teacher, a counselor and sometimes just a listening ear. I have loved being in a position that allows me to build close, positive relationships with my clients and enhances my ability to provide them a relaxing experience along with the best services and products possible!
