Paula’s Hair Unlimited
Owner: Paula Jones
Address: 729 Lakeside Dr. W.
Paula Jones says she specializes in the “science of making people beautiful.”
Paula’s Hair Unlimited is a full-service hair salon offering cuts, color, weaves, perms and eyebrow waxing. She was also recently certified to provide non-surgical hair replacement.
A master cosmetologist, Jones has big plans for her 31-year-old company once the COVID-19 pandemic passes. Her business strategies include hiring a nail technician and esthetician to round out the salon’s services.
An active member in the community, Jones is often invited to speak at local high schools. “My goal is to instill in young adults that hard work and dedication pay off,” she says. “It’s not a job to me, it’s my passion.”
