Alex McDonald is a stylist in Las Vegas, NV at Atelier by Square. Though she has worked in the beauty industry for 11 years, she has only been behind the chair as a stylist for 1 1/2 of those years. Working as a receptionist in salons, a sales associate with Armstrong McCall and store manager with Cosmoprof, made up majority of her years in the industry. Already having a love of hair and beauty, it was an easy transition to enroll as a cosmetology student at Paul Mitchell the School Las Vegas. After graduating in 2016, she went straight to assisting a master stylist at Atelier by Square and is now a full time stylist behind the chair. Since before enrolling in school, she was seeking outside education in all areas of hair but really fell in love with cutting. Having taken hands on classes with DJ Muldoon, Ira Pope Sage, Three Education, Sally Rogerson and Kien Hoang just to name a few, she has sought out endless classes to better her craft and truly customize each haircut she performs. Being an independent hairdresser with no company affiliation has allowed her to create her own ideals and beliefs that work best for her. She has already done several haircut demonstrations , participated in Elevate Hair and has been a two time Behind the Chair Awards nominee.
