The Team 

Alex is the owner and visionary behind Carbon Salon. Since graduating from Paul Mitchell the school in 2009, Alex has worked very hard perfecting her craft and turning her dreams of one day being a salon owner into a reality. In 2011 she became a National Educator for Paul Mitchell, teaching live demos on stage at hair shows and sharing her knowledge with other stylists. Hair is her canvas and color is her paint. She loves specializing in all things color since it allows her to have full creative expression of her art. She is also passionate about her clientele and guarantees their hair will look and feel it's best when they leave the salon. Alex was voted for "Best Balayage/Ombre", "Best Corrective Color", and "Best with Long Hair". Aside from her passion with the hair industry, she's also a mom to three dogs, enjoys spending time with her family/friends and is a lover of interior design.
