Alyx has been a hairstylist for 11 years starting their career at Toni&Guy working with some amazing stylists. They assisted on photoshoots and hair shows and later started freelance work while studying fashion design at university.
Let’s hear from Alyx!:
Queer Cuts was born out of my desire to provide a welcoming, accepting space for members of the queer community to achieve the hair of their dreams. Having trained and worked in a hair salon myself, I recognised that gendered pricing and gender norms are such a huge part of traditional salon experiences, and being non-binary myself – this is something I found challenging to navigate, and speaking with friends and clients, I knew I was not alone. By crafting my own space for LGBTQIA+ and gender non-conforming clients, I can apply the skills and knowledge I’ve gained from over a decade of hair styling to help clients feel their most authentic selves, celebrate their individuality and provide them with practical, non-judgemental tips and advice to care for their hair. Queer Cuts is here for anyone and everyone ready to feel completely and unapologetically themselves, from someone who understands just how important hair can be in expressing your identity.
