Meet the Pin Up professionals that are keeping the Seacoast looking stylish.


Alex Tuley

Owner + Level 4 stylist

Since 2008, Alex has been reshaping the way people think about hair. She began her career in dynamic downtown Portland, Maine and relocated to the NH Seacoast in 2010. As a woman with curly and sometimes unruly hair, Alex understands the importance of working with natural texture and pattern to create a style that complements your unique face shape and lifestyle. The right style for you won’t just look great on the day you leave the salon but will grow out correctly so you’ll feel great every day between visits. Whether you seek to add shape to straight hair or control your curls, Alex has the tools and training. She’s skilled in classic precision cutting techniques and specializes in re-texturizing hair that’s been cut against the grain for years. Alex will keep your new locks looking healthy by applying only organic colors, lighteners, and styling aids. On her off time Alex thrives on hunting down speciality antiques and oddities, with her partner Jesse, to add to their growing collection—some of which has spilled over into the salon! Alex also loves watching 80’s and 90’s music videos and learning all the dance moves.
