A relaxed mood and lots of personality grab your attention when you enter The Style Studio, owned by Shannon Gentry.

 "They say in beauty school that customers will come back because they like your personality," Gentry said with a bright smile. "It's very relaxed in here and I'm very flexible with my customers."

 The Style Studio has been offering a full line of services since 2000, which include haircuts, styles, color and wax.

 "A lot of people don't know where the salon is located," Gentry sighed, "One of her regulars agreed that the first time she tried to find The Style Studio she ended up at a different location."

 When Gentry isn't styling hair, she enjoys spending time with her three kids, Desi, 19 who is a sophomore at Iowa State University, Kaige, 13 and Haden, 12. Gentry also enjoys watching sporting events.

 Gentry knows the importance of buying local and enjoys having everything Leon has to offer.

 "I wish there were a few more stores, then I'd never have to leave town," Gentry joked.

 Gentry describes The Style Studio with one quote that hangs on a wall in the salon, which is, "Blessed is the hairstylist that brings out the beauty in others."

 Gentry stated that she is currently happy with what the chamber is currently doing. "I think that they are doing a lot of really neat things," Gentry said.

 The Style Studio is located at 109 NW 2nd Street in Leon and is open Tuesday through Friday by appointment.

 Thank you Shannon for your continued confidence in our community of Leon. Your business allows the community of Leon options of services to keep and bring people to our community. The Leon Chamber wishes you continued success.
