Alexes began cutting at the age of 13 in her aunt’s bathroom. What started out as volunteering to help with line ups ultimately changed her life. Finding something she enjoyed, she continued cutting hair for her family members. Although she was a full time student, she also became a full time barber, building a clientele with the students of SUNY Brockport, eventually making a name for herself and creating her own business. During the pandemic, she became a mobile barber, consisting of word of mouth and marketing. She believes that barbering is more than the job description. She enjoys beyond what the job entails, which includes containing a sense of community, developing personal relationships, as well as being an overall form of expression…her own personal therapy. She aims to further evolve her career as a barber in addition to expanding her clientele from different backgrounds and hopes to continue providing clients the experience of a lifetime.
