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 opened her second HLT location in Lido Marina Village, Newport Beach. At her salons, she prides herself on creating a go-to-hub for all things beauty.
