Alex is a glass-half-full kind of woman. She believes that every person that sits in her chair is unique and their hair should reflect their individuality. The foundation of your unique experience in Alex’s chair begins with listening to your needs, and creating a customized look for you, while keeping the integrity of your hair. Alex specializes in dimensional color—balayage, ombre, highlights, and natural lived-in hair; and haircuts—long layered, long bobs, textured cuts, beachy waves, and scissor-over-comb. She was educated at College of San Mateo Cosmetology in 2012, and has since taken Aveda Advanced Training with many of their master stylists, learning advanced color and cutting techniques. She styled hair behind the chair at Mizu Salon Uptown, an Aveda Concept Salon in Half Moon Bay, California for five years. Alex is a small-town girl from the redwoods of La Honda, California. She moved to Portland with her husband, Jed, son Everett Forest, and two pups. Alex loves exploring the outdoors, running, backpacking, and hitting up all the amazing farmers markets here. She enjoys every moment and experience life has to offer.
