ALIX TAYLOR

OWNER + EXPERT BROW ARTIST

Passionate and dedicated to her craft, Alix has over 9 years of experience, establishing herself as a go-to beauty expert. Alix’s work can be seen on the red carpet, in magazines and on TV. She’s had the opportunity of working with Teddi Mellencamp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Joanna Krupa, Paris Hilton, Robin Roberts, Natalie Alyn Lind, Whitney Port, Allison Sweeney and Katharine McPhee to name a few.

Alix obtained her California Esthetics license in 2010 and her desire to expand her knowledge of beauty, skincare, makeup, and of course eyebrows led her to an accreditation in Microblading. From there, Alix’s signature brow 'Fluff' was born, taking her career to the next level.

With her beauty knowledge, education, business experience, and connections in the beauty industry, Alix chose Los Angeles, to follow her heart and launch her first salon, Hairy Little Things. Two years later, she is now opening her newest salon in Lido Marina Village Newport Beach, the second location for Hairy Little Things. At her salons, she prides herself on creating a go-to-hub for all things beauty. The salons offer a range of services from microblading, makeup, lash extensions and full-service hair care.

NIKA DOWLAT

SALON MANAGER + BROW ARTIST

An LA native with natural brows of genetic gold, Nika was constantly teased during her childhood for her bushy brows. Now she gets to give HLT clients the same level of brow envy!

Nika received her Bachelors of Science in Public Health from CSU-Fullerton in June 2018. Nika completed her esthetics training in May 2019 and soon after, was trained in microblading by Alix Taylor.

Nika’s approach is conservative and natural. She believes that building the best brows is a two-way effort and works together with her clients to achieve a shared brow goal. Her priority is to give clients the brows of their dreams!
