Welcome to Hair By Alla!
A bit about Alla
I’m originally from Odessa, Ukraine, right near the Black Sea. I came to the United States in 2002, and now call Oregon my home. Even back in Ukraine, I was interested in design, art, and crafts.
I’ve always had an eye for high-fashion and beauty, and was able to easily fall into the hair design industry. Creating art through hair styles comes naturally.
I’m enthusiastic about how hairstyles fit the individual. It’s all about balance and how a style can help an individual’s uniqueness shine through. Furthermore, I’m able to expand my own artistic visions by pursuing the industry’s cutting-edge techniques.
I’m constantly striving to improve myself; my skills and my understanding of hair design. I explore the industry’s boundaries and push past them. I endeavor to keep my skills honed, and opt to further my education to learn about new fashion trends and the latest techniques.
