Alicia knew at five years old that a life behind the chair was in her future when she cut her own bangs and couldn’t be happier about them. With her now-trained eye, she looks back with a smile and realizes her first masterpiece could have used a little tweaking, but from that moment on, her passion for hair was born! Alicia’s pride in her work is mirrored by her rapidly growing clientele. Her knack for balayage painting is exhibited in her ever-expanding before and after photo album of her clients. Alicia was originally going to college for Marketing and had a last-minute realization that she HAD to follow her dream. We are so glad that she did! She signed up for cosmetology school, sought out Gerald’s upon getting her license, and the rest is history.
Favorite thing about working at Gerald’s: “I’ve always known about Gerald’s because my whole family has come here since the Northville location opened (over forty years ago). Gerald’s is a one-of-a-kind salon to me.” She is extremely grateful for our continued education program, and has even set her sights on achieving a Colour Department Trainer position, but it doesn’t stop there. “Not only do I LOVE Gerald’s for the training aspect, but I love it because everyone is like family here. If you ever need advice or a boost of confidence, the girls are always willing to help!”
Fun fact: “I would rather go on a vacation in Northern Michigan than on a tropical island!”
