...She’s super thorough with each section that she works with. Listens to what you want to the T!!! I showed her a couple of pictures from Instagram and she told me the technique that she would be using on my hair and explained everything that she was, and would be doing next. Plus she is super easy to talk to! It’s not one of those awkward experiences where you feel like you’re having empty conversations. She’s great and I give her a 10/10!

...I liked that we discussed my hair goals and she described how she was going to achieve them to me so that I felt included in the process. I have a lot of hair and a lot of damage done so the process took a while. But Alexandra never rushed and really took the time to get every detail and step right...

...She has a unique technique that incorporates highlights seamlessly throughout your hair without the chunkiness of a typical highlighting process with foil / balayage. I will never trust anyone else with my hair as much as I trust Alex ...

My friend referred Alex to me and before the appointment we texted to explain what I was looking to do. I did a full balayage from dark brown to light gold and a short over the shoulder haircut. She really layered my hair well so it lays naturally. I’m not someone who spends time styling it and Alex made sure to take that into account when cutting. All in all, I’m SO pleased! It took a solid 3.5h (always does, I have a LOT of hair) and Alex was such a sport with high energy and full attention the whole time.

I came to Alex by referral and I’m so grateful. Alex did a wonderful consultation, was meticulous in her technique and the results were amazing. I came to her because i wanted to try something new for my birthday & it’s exactly what I didn’t know that I wanted!

I did a photoshoot with Alexandra to update my portfolio. She came up with a few terrific looks. She made me radiate! If you’re looking for someone to do your hair and makeup for portfolios, head shots, company websites or just for your own keeping you must use her! I will definitely work with her again.

I’ve been seeing Alexandra for years & she is amazing! My highlights are the perfect color, very natural looking & she doesn’t use a toner. For my fine hair she keeps the foils delicate & the results are consistent, I’m always getting compliments.

I came to Alexandra from a recommendation from a friend. I have super thick and curly dark hair and have never tried highlights before. Alexandra not only brought me as close to the picture as I wanted, but articulated exactly the time it would take, and the steps that would be needed to get there. I’m so happy I went to her for my first experience going blonde.

...This was by far one of the best color appointments I have ever had. Alex immediately knew how to achieve what I was looking for with the least risk of damage; which is so important to me because my hair is so fine and breaks so easily. My thought of traditional highlights was quickly updated to getting a mix of highlights and balayage to give a more modern look which I appreciated. On top of the amazing color, the blowout was not rushed and left my hair looking soft, healthy, and not overly dry. Many times I find myself having to fix blowouts that just went bad by time I got home or just were bad to start with, but this one was a perfect mix of smooth and volume and lasted the through the rest of the weekend.

Alexandra is amazing! I am a brunette, basically every highlight I have ever gotten turns orange, I started panicking thinking of what my color would look like in my wedding pictures...So I decided to splurge...And I am never leaving. She did balayage and it’s the perfect tone! Alexandra has a great eye, my wedding pics turned out beautiful, I will forever be grateful.

Alexandra Sifre is a hair color goddess! Not only is she the best colorist I’ve ever had, she is also quite a beautiful person inside and out, making you feel like a true queen when you leave! She knows the science behind coloring, which is equally as important as a vision. Her balyage skills are on point. I went to her because I wanted to go more blonde, but still look natural with my skin tone... Not only did she blend and tone, she color corrected my prior colorists mistakes. I literally never loved a style more! I was blown away

I was anxious since an ombré can be challenging and I hadn’t had success with past stylists. I was greeted warmly by the manager and immediately felt welcomed and at home. It’s the total opposite of what you would expect at a swanky upper east side salon. Everyone there is really friendly and down to earth. Alexandra took the time to explain each step of the process and was extraordinarily diligent. The result was stunning. Very natural and totally in line with the photos I had shown her of my ideal look. I was so happy with the result that I returned the very next day for eyelash extensions. These were applied with the steady hand of a surgeon and it was so relaxing in the spa atmosphere that I fell asleep on the table. Alexandra is a very talented artist and this salon is like a relaxing mini vacation. I’ve found my second home on the upper east side!

What a difference! After Alexandra did my eyelashes I didn’t even have to wear mascara anymore, such an improvement. Not to mention I never had anyone take so much time and care into putting them in properly. Two weeks later I still haven’t lost any lashes!
