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:

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!

I want the salon to be a place you can be heard. Ask me any questions or concerns you have about your hair and I will give you my best ideas and solutions to have you leave, looking and feeling beautiful!
