Meet Your Stylists
Malinda - Owner
"My name is Malinda Costa, I am the Owner of Sassy Paws Pet Styles LLC and have been grooming for 16years. I started my career in an agricultural high school and upon completion received my grooming certification from a grooming school. I truly love my career and all of my furry (and human) clients. My husband and I share our home with our 9year old Maltese named Lilly Bell (who's spunky attitude cannot be missed when visiting the salon) and our beautiful daughter. In my spare time I enjoy pet industry trade shows, craft fairs, photography and spending lots of time outside with my family."
Hi, I'm Iliana (lani)! These are my personal loves Lola (on my lap), Bruin (my grey boy) and Belle (my husky), life would not be complete without them or all of my family dogs. We are a family of 7 pups altogether, 2 lhasa apsos, 2 chihuahuas, 2 huskys and our big ol' american bulldog/pit mix. I got into grooming after relocating to the south due to the military. I decided to follow my passion and go through grooming school to become a certified groomer. I absolutely love working with dogs and giving them their well deserved spa time. I've now been in the grooming world for just about 3 years and I can not see myself doing anything else. The pure happiness, spark and excitement a pup radiates when they feel clean and know they look amazing is what fuels my love for grooming.
Hi my name is Lauren and I am a true animal lover at heart. I have lived in Reading, MA for the majority of my life. I have been working with animals for the past 3 years and I see myself doing so for many more. You will mainly see me in the bathing room, as my job is to prep your dog for their haircut. I am looking forward to joining our team of groomers in the future! My real passion for dogs started when I met my boyfriend and his two golden retrievers, Einstein (shown on the right) and Minnie, (shown on the left) who I now consider to be my own dogs. I was smitten from day one and my passion has only grown since. In my spare time I enjoy playing video games, kayaking, ice skating and, of course, spending time with my dogs which usually involves car rides and trips to the park. I look forward to meeting your furry four legged children in our salon!
