Her inimitable creativity has seen her style shoots for the cream of fashion publications, where she works alongside top photographers including Matt Irwin, Angelo Pennetta, Ben Toms, Scott Trindle and Tyrone Lebon.

Alex counts Florence Welch and M.I.A. as clientele and in 2010 she co-founded cult hair salon Bleach, with a portfolio that includes fashion brands Hermès, Topshop, Jigsaw and Dominic Jones.

Hailing from the midlands, Alex’s career began at her mum’s before moving to London at the age of 16, where she began in an apprenticeship. Nearly ten years on, she is one of fashion’s most sought-after hair stylists and colourists.
