Styles by Alison

  • Years in the industry:
  • What services do you specialize in:
    Dimensional and Vivid colors, giving rockinʼ blow dry styles and haircuts: anywhere between edgy, asymmetrical pixie to a classic long layer. I love combining gradient natural or Vivid colors to achieve a blended, shine-reflecting, organic look for the hair. I am passionate about the art of eyebrow shaping -- itʼs amazing how it can pull your entire look together! One of my favorite aspects of the beauty industry is using my artistry to bring the inner beauty and confidence of my clients to the surface, and seeing a new, positive self-image shine through.
  • What color lines do you use:
    Paul Mitchell, Redken and Pravana Vivids
  • What type of clients do you attract:
    I have an incredibly diverse clientele ranging from the white collar businessperson seeking a more conventional cut with grey coverage to the client who is wanting to stand out from the crowd with a rainbow of colors cascading through their locks. I am known to send a client out the door with a bright red Mohawk, and give the next a beautiful layered cut with sun-kissed balayage highlights.
  • What is your level of pricing at 1313:
  • Describe your personal style:
    My style is also all versatile! I love flowing dresses with a carefree messy braid style, but sometimes it feels good to come back to my rocker roots with a pair of combat boots and studded jacket.
  • Where do you find inspiration:
    My inspiration tends to come from nature. Whether it is bright pinks, purples and blues seen from an ocean sunset, warm and cool browns on the wood grain of a tree while hiking, or remarkable reds, golds and copper from a campfire.
  • Advanced training this past year:
    Brazilian Blowout, Kenra Smooth System. I am a Pravana Certified Master Colorist.
  • Other education:
    Two year apprenticeship at a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Sexy hair cutting, Martin Parsons styling, Mirabella bridal makeup and Pureology haircutting.
