I know firsthand how much hard work, endurance, and grit goes into building up your own business, and this talented lady has got it all! Alyx, owner of Hair by Alyx, is one of the best hair stylists and makeup artists around—I love her work so much that I personally recommend her to all of my clients for any of their hair and makeup needs before a photoshoot. She is that good! Check out her recent interview featured on VoyageHouston!
about this session
So, when she reached out to me needing some updated personal branding images, I was thrilled for the chance to feature this remarkable business owner on my blog. I could not be more excited that this girl is moving on up! Alyx is not only successful in all of her business ventures, she is also one of the kindest, most inspirational women I have ever met!
Her salon is located at Salons at the Lake in Conroe, Texas, and she is exceptional at listening to her clients and fulfilling their hair and makeup visions in a way that makes every client walk out of her doors with confidence and a little added pep in their step. When describing her work and her style, Alyx explains,
“I’m not the type of stylist to do what I want. I like to understand your style, daily routines, and help mold your skills into your everyday look. I want my client to replicate their look at home, never leaving my chair feeling discouraged. Yes, I love to change it up, but I want you to be 100% comfortable. I will be truthful on what works for you and your lifestyle. But I also can come up with great alternatives for what you’re looking for. I shoot for realistic not idealistic. So, Let’s play! Whether it’s a new lipstick or a new hair color. It’s always fun to step outside the box.”
For her photoshoot, we aimed to capture the essence of Alyx’s own style and charismatic personality. I love the chic rock style that she pulled off so well with a Johnny Cash t-shirt paired with a pretty lace vest, killer black jeans, and matching black hat. Alyx is so beautiful inside and out! To lighten up the look, we shot outdoors for an airy feel with the sun highlighting her gorgeous smile and lovely eyes. I’m loving how they turned out, and I’m so excited for my friend’s continued success!
Thanks for partnering with me, Alyx! I wish you the very best!!
