29 year old Louisiana native Alicia Paige is the owner of Salon Edge in Slidell, LA. She pursued a biology degree at Southeastern Louisiana University, only to realize after 3 years that’s NOT what I wanted to do. I always had the gift of “manipulating” hair, just didn’t have the passion. Now, I can’t see myself doing anything else! Favorite color is purple!
Alicia is very with her ministry & takes her walk with Christ very seriously! She enjoys traveling, singing, cooking & shopping. Oh & did I mention she LOVES being behind my chair?!!! The Beauty chair that is!

Business Challenge & “Ah-Ha” Moment
After finally realizing that I should be a hair stylist. I decided to go to cosmetology school and shortly after, I realized it was just not being run right and was chaotic. So I left there and decided to go to another school, and the same exact same thing happened. So I left that school as well. Then I decided to seek GOD and pray because by this time I knew that this is what I was now supposed to be doing in life. One day I decided to call State Board of Cosmetology to get some guidance, and was told that I was NOT allowed to enroll in any other school because I owed the previous schools although I did not complete their programs.
After about 3 months of working on a job that I just was not happy in, I was driving one day and the Holy Spirit said to call State Board again. That was the day that truly began my journey. The person on the line looked at my file and said, “There were NO blocks on my account and that I could enroll in any school that I wanted to” From that point I enrolled in a Paul Mitchell affiliated school and received the best education and would not trade it for anything!
