Salon Alexander’s talented stylists create fashionable, customized coifs to suit each client’s lifestyle and personality. In about 45 minutes, a staffer snips and shapes tresses into an angular bob or a series of flowing layers, giving hair the care and attention usually reserved for presidents trying standup comedy. Clients who opt to lighten locks with Schwarzkopf color can catnap in plush leather chairs in Salon Alexander’s comfy processing room while the color seeps into manes. After completing the cut and color treatments, a stylist treats hair to a blow-dry, styles it, and rewards it for its good behavior with arbitrary “brownie” points or “blondie” points.
Salon Alexander owner Ashley Stone might look familiar. That's because she—or, rather, her alter ego, Blondie—was the runner-up in the Oxygen network's second season of Hair Battle Spectacular, in which hairstylists competed to create the best larger-than-life fantasy hairdos. Stone has shared her hair beauty tips on Elle Girl's website and appeared on the Hot 93.7 radio show to discuss her interest in modern art, which is the driving force behind her avant-garde style.
Together with her team, Stone combines her extensive experience and passion for art and fashion to transform her clients with a variety of services, including specialty coloring, makeup, and eyelash extensions. The stylists at her sister company, Beauty Entourage, travel to the churches, homes, or low-hovering spaceships of brides-to-be to beautify them for their big day. The mobile crew has earned one of The Knot's Best Makeup Artists & Hair awards.
Committed to developing beauty beyond the surface level, Stone participates in charity events. You also might have caught her WTNH 8 interview promoting a charity event that benefited Wigs for Kids, which provides specialized wigs for children who have lost their hair because of medical conditions.
