Paige FitzSimons graduated from Summit High School early, in December 2010.
After graduation, FitzSimons immediately started cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell in Denver. She graduated with honors in coloring and precision cuts.
"I moved back to Breckenridge after graduating Paul Mitchell in February because I missed the mountain town, and wanted to start my career here. I love how it's a small town and everyone knows each other - and, of course, the beauty," FitzSimons said.
FitzSimons is a hairstylist at Roots Hair Studio on Main Street in Breckenridge.
"I love that it's a salon that brings city style to the mountain town," she said.
Of her time at Summit High, FitzSimons said she worked very hard all throughout school to keep her grades up so she could graduate early and live out her dream of doing hair.
"(My) dreams for the future would be to build up an amazing clientele and to make each and everyone feel more beautiful and confident every time they leave my chair in the salon," FitzSimons said. "Bring some serious style to this small mountain town!"
