CEO & co- founder Bex began her career at PMTS Schenectady & then went on to earn her specialty in haircutting at NYC’s mizu salon. From there Bex went on to build a successful beauty business in Austin, TX. Bex was inspired by the rejuvenation of Schenectady and felt the community would benefit from high quality hair services. Bex therefore decided it was time to stand apart from traditional salons and raise the market bar with beauty expertise! Bex is a professional beauty expert that loves making others feel like a better version of themselves.
As well as a nickname for the founder, BEX also serves an acronym for“Beauty Experience” performed by a “Beauty Expert.”
