Alyssa grew up in the tiny town of Monument, Colorado, just outside Denver. She lives in the suburbs of Denver now with her husband, Kenton, and 3 year old son, Emerson. Alyssa started cosmetology school after high school, knowing it was her calling in life. She skipped college, not completely convinced that the “American Dream” was the only way to go. She knew she was destined to do, live, and BE hairdressing. Being a hairstylist was the only thing she was absolutely sure of, and the passion that fueled her was lit with intensity. Alyssa attended the Aveda Institute Denver and hit the ground running, showing the world she was meant to do hair, and wouldn’t take “No” for an answer.
She started her career at one of the top salons in Denver, and climbed her way to the top. She was a color and cutting educator for their Advanced Academy and that was the moment of her career she knew she was meant to teach other stylists to be the best stylist they could be. The most rewarding opportunity for her was to see stylists grow and advance in what they know, and be so proud to have invested their time and effort into education. This lead her to her pursuance of being a part of the Masters of Balayage team. She has now been behind the chair for 8 years and has big goals for her future and the future of other stylists that attend our classes!
When she’s not at the salon, you can find Alyssa with her husband and son hiking in the foothills and trails where they live, getting in a pilates or yoga class, or grabbing coffee at the local coffee shop.
Alyssa is so thrilled to be joining the MOB team in 2020 and teaching you all everything she knows about Balayage and the value of education that all of our Masters of Balayage team are so passionate about!
