Owner, Licensed Cosmetologist
Ali grew up with a passion for hair. After completing her cosmetology license in Colorado, she immediately packed her bags for what was supposed to be a 3-month internship at MTV in NYC. Within 2 weeks of hairstyling for the major network, she was hired on as a full-time hairstylist for the show “The Seven”. During her adventure in NYC, Ali styled hair on shows such as Teen Mom After shows, Real World Reunion, 2010 VMA promotions, and Jersey Shore. To fulfill her love for make-up artistry, she also worked Fall Fashion Week for Maybelline New York and Marie Claire Magazine.
After working the famous New Years Eve Bash for MTV as her last hoo-rah, Ali returned home to Fort Collins to start her own creative salon in her home town. The Cutlery Salon was made to “Bring the Big City to the Small Town,” as Ali says. She continues to use her knowledge from the Big Apple to start trends and updated looks at her up-scale, lofty salon. Education is her #1 priority at the salon, for herself and her fellow stylists.
