Alex states that her most inspirational person is her mother – “She never ever gave up and she always had a smile on her face. She taught me how to be kind and also live every day like it is your last.”
Alex’s fashion influence is probably Kylie Jenner. She loves her edgy style and how she can rock any outfit or accessory and be very confident about it. She love people who have their own style and hair style and walk around with their head held high.
Alex attended cosmetology school in Greenville, NC. They focused mainly on color and seeing peoples smiling faces when they walked out of the door. A long term goal of hers is to own a salon. She also wants to eventually go back to school for fashion design or marketing to end up having her own clothing line and show off my work at fashion shows in big cities.
Her best hair advice is to take 100% care of it. There is a big difference between products you get from the drugstore and products you gets from an actual salon. Use the products that best fits you!
If she could live anywhere in the world it would be in New York because she loves how there is such a variety in people and the way they act, dress, and also what they do in general as far as career goes. When she am not at work she is likely at home with her cute dog Jada or shopping for new outfits & makeup. Alex’s favorite music is country and pop. She love Jason Andean, Luke Bryan, & Rascal Flatts, Coldplay, Goo Goo dolls, and The Fray. The best concert she has ever been to was T-Pain, Kelly Rowland, and Chris Brown. she loves to sing and to hear other people use their voices and seeing the look on their faces about how that song relates to them.
Her favorite part of the cosmetology industry is making people feel beautiful and happy. She really does love seeing her clients’ faces when they walk out of the salon and they look happier than ever. Also she loves coloring and mixing different color formulas to make a certain color. It’s so fun for her to experiment and try new things!
