Meet Our Team

Brandon Barrett - Owner / Master Stylist


Hi, my name is Brandon! I'm the owner here at By the Blade Salon. I set out a couple years ago to create a company where the team truly acted as a team. People should enjoy their work and in turn that shines through in the way we treat our guests. I truly enjoy the fun family we have created as we continue to grow. 

Laken Martin - Master Stylist / Texture and Extensions Specialist



Hello, my name is Laken and I am super enthusiastic about the hair industry. It’s my passion, and I’m dedicated to each and every person that sits in my chair. I became a hairstylist because I was at a point in my life where I needed more. My purpose in life is making people feel and look good. Ever since I can remember I was doing hair, whether it be my mom and sisters or even my neighbors. From then on I knew I should become a hairstylist. It just took me a while to get here. My inspiration comes from life. Listening to other people talk, what people wear, and nature. I’m inspired by all of it. My favorite hair color has always been red. It may look simple however, red, it's not always easy to achieve. I guess I just love the challenge. The person who inspires me the most is my daughter. It’s like no matter what I do both good or bad, I’m still super mommy. She inspires me to get up (sometimes late) and conquer the day. Without her I might still be in that place, trying to figure it out. I’m so excited to continue down this path of artistry . Whether behind the scenes at a fashion show, working a photo shoot, or behind the chair, I am forever happy.

Lindsey Gray - Massage Therapist


My name is Lindsey. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist. I attended the Dayton School of Medical Massage. I am a firm believer that self care should not be a luxury. From aching muscles, old nagging injuries, headaches, limited mobility, and improved immunity, the benefits from regular massage are so much more that just relief from stress. I can't wait to help you feel your best!

 I specialize in relaxation massage, Swedish, deep tissue work, hot stone, prenatal, trigger point, and sports massage.
