I have always had a passion for fashion, hair and make-up, and I love learning new techniques and staying current with trends. I have more than 10 years' salon experience and, for many of my clients, I am a secret weapon. Because I am fascinated by the science and behavior of hair, I can offer expert guidance when you're choosing a new style. I see my relationships with clients as partnerships: We work together to achieve your desired look while taking your hair type, physical features, daily routine and, yes, budget into consideration. I take pride in empowering my clients through education, and I produce free videos on a variety of topics that you'll find on Instagram and Facebook.
I specialize in curly and wavy hair and earned my DevaCurl certification on-site in New York City.
Styling your hair is more than just a job for me. I love my work and getting to know my clients. Utilizing my knowledge and skills to help you feel confident and attractive is why I choose to spend my time behind the chair. For me, it is a joyful and rewarding experience, and for my clients, it can change their world.

"It's more than just a haircut with Alaina. Her skillset, advice and product recommendations have helped me achieve fantastic second day hair (previously impossible). Thank you for being my hair stylist and curl consultant!"
"Alaina always knows exactly how to achieve the look I have in mind and yet offers creative ideas as well. I always leave the salon feeling my best!"
"Finally found a hairstylist that knows how to cut and style curly hair! So happy! Thank you!!!!
"Alaina gave me my first DevaCut, and I love results!"
"I got my first ever Devacut from Alaina. I had been following her curly haircare videos and posts on her Facebook page Locks by Alaina. I appreciated the care and attention she gave to these posts. It inspired me to consider how I could take better care of my hair. I decided to get a Devacut from her, and I'm glad I did. She asked me questions to get a good feel for what I wanted. She gave me a great cut, and spent time answering my questions (about how to tame frizz and increase volume at my crown.) She also answered my questions about Devacurl products line. She gave me tips on styling and encouraged me to experiment to find the combination of products and tools that will work well for my hair. I really appreciate a custom approach to caring for curly hair, and that's what I got from Alaina!"
