Meet the Pin Up professionals that are keeping the Seacoast looking stylish.
Owner + Master 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.
*Unfortunately, Alex is not currently taking new clients.

Guest Master Stylist
We are over the moon to have Taylor on our team! Taylor spends her 9-5 traveling around the country for John Paul Mitchell Systems teaching stylist’s technical color applications, advanced blonding techniques, fashion forward vivid color placement, color correction, and making hair dreams come true! Taylor has a limited schedule with monthly Saturday guest appearances. Although we are an eco-friendly salon, Taylor exclusively uses JPMS colors and lighteners. We stand by the John Paul Mitchell Systems family business and ethical practices as they are very thoughtful about ingredient sourcing, transparency, and respect to the client experience.
