Alexandria Alvarado of KODA Salon


A certified expert in the art of Brazilian blowouts, intricate buns, and the salon’s resident braiding queen, Alexandria, also known as Alex, trained under Koda owner Cheng Tan for 18 months before building her own catalogue of creative cuts and styles. A San Diego native and Bellus Academy graduate, ingenuity fuels everything Alexandria does, from wedding styling and photo shoots to dance and embroidery. Whether it’s an artfully messy bun or an impossibly intricate twist, Alex’s style is eclectic, confident, and carefully tailored to suit the unique esthetic of each and every one of her clients.
