Paige & Company celebrates first anniversary

Paige & Company Hair Designs celebrated the one-year anniversary of its opening in Oakley Plaza in Troy with a ribbon cutting on Nov. 6.

The event was originally scheduled for spring, but was moved when the salon was closed for six weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic before reopening on May 4.

“It’s been great. The community’s been great,” Long said. “(Oakley Plaza) has been fabulous.”

Paige & Company provides haircuts, colors, perms, highlights, eyebrow micro blading and balayage, which is hair painting. The salon also provides special-occasion styling and makeup.

Owner Paige Long operated a location in Arnold in Jefferson County for 18 years before closing in 2005. After nearly a decade-and-a-half away, Long decided to start another salon, this time in Lincoln County.

“I had been commuting from Troy to Arnold after I got married – and the commute was too much, so I decided to reopen Paige & Company,” she said.
