Perry Nixdorf: A Carson City Icon and Fourth-Generation Hairdresser

Decades of Dedication to the Art of Hairdressing
My journey with hair began when I was just 18, and since moving to Carson City in 1981, I've become a recognized icon in the local beauty industry. My passion for hairdressing is not just about crafting the latest styles; it's about embracing the entire spectrum of fashion trends – from today's hottest looks to timeless classics.

A Tradition of Beauty in the Nixdorf Family
Hairdressing runs deep in my veins, being a proud fourth-generation hairdresser. I continue the legacy of the Nixdorf family, a tradition that began with my great-grandmother in Hamburg, Germany, and carried through generations across continents – from Europe to North America. My parents operated "Hair Studio" in Carson City's Silver City Mall, and before that, they owned salons in Buffalo, Lake Tahoe, and Toronto. This rich family heritage in hairdressing has been my guiding star and inspiration.

My Formative Years in Hairdressing
My professional training began at a beauty school in Lake Tahoe at 17. Post-graduation, I honed my skills in Sacramento under the mentorship of my boss, Carmel, whose apprenticeship program laid the foundation for my career. Despite a brief stint in LA, my heart led me back to Carson City, where I joined forces with my wife, Starr. Navigating through various roles, I eventually took over the family business, "Hair Studio", from my step-mother, setting the stage for my own legacy in hairdressing.

Celebrating a Decade at Paradise SalonSpaWellness
Today, Starr and I celebrate over a decade at Paradise SalonSpaWellness, our joint endeavor to offer premier spa and wellness services in Carson City.
