Alaska and I clicked right away. She was professional, courteous, and an excellent communicator. Her prices were outstanding and the quality of the service was exceptional. I got compliments the entire day of my wedding and have already recommended her to my neighbor who has an event coming up. Do not hesitate to contact Alaska. She is versatile, creative, cheerful and calm. She made my day incredible and she will do the same for you!

Alaska did an amazing job with my daughter’s prom makeup and hair! Working with her was such a treat up to and during the stressful prom day prep. She is responsive, professional, got us ready on time, and the gorgeous work she did lasted all night! My kid felt like a million bucks and we still stayed in the budget. Thank you!!

Alaska was by far the best experience getting my hair blown out/curled with extensions while traveling, the curls lasted 4 days! Excellent work!

Alaska was amazing! I brought my first wig to her to get styled and she was so great. She made me feel comfortable and was very informative about what she was doing.

Alaska was great! She came to our house to cut my hair and my wife's hair and we were both very happy with the results. Alaska has also been great about communicating from the moment we reached out with recommendations, helpful advice and brainstorming - all the way through to the appointment, which she confirmed the day prior and then arrived right on time. We'll definitely work with Alaska moving forward and highly recommend her!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do require a 50% deposit to secure all bookings. No deposit, no confirmed booking. I also have a travel fee if I am traveling to the client. Price is based on round trip milage.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I try to make the client comfortable and at home — asking open ended questions. I like to know the clients hair history, what they’re looking to achieve, and I always, always ask for inspiration photos! I like to be clear about what we CAN achieve and what we CAN NOT achieve in our first session.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am DevaCurl certified, I have been trained to properly install and remove extensions, I have experience working in fashion shows in NY, LA, and Portland Metro area, I have experience with working with natural hair: feed in braids, crochet braids, design braids, styling, etc.
