ALEX NIELSEN

Hey there Olympia!

 I just moved here from Chicago IL after years of dreaming of living in the PNW. I'm so excited for this new chapter in my life and career. Heres a little back story of my last 10 years of doing hair!

 

I've always been obsessed with all things hair. In 2009 when I discovered I could attend beauty school through a high school program, I didn't think twice. I always knew this was what I wanted to do.

I believe hair is a huge part of our identity. I love how changing your hair can completely transform someone's confidence and self worth. Having a career that allows me to be creative, and make people feel good about themselves is truly a dream come true!

I began my career as a color specialist at a well known, high end salon. I spent 7 years honing my coloring skills.

From there, I went to work at a chic, local salon where I focused on fine-tuning my modern hairstyling skills as a way to compliment my coloring skills. With that goal in mind, I continued my education and became a full service stylist.

Creating a look from start to finish sparked a whole new level of passion in me. 

In January 2020 I decided to start a new venture and The Alchemist Salon was born. Being an independent stylist gives my life the freedom and balance I've always desired!
