The only thing more unpredictable than Alyssa’s ever-changing hair ‘dos (in her two and a half months with us, she’s gone from hippie chic dreds to a sleek brunette bob) is where she worked before bringing her graphic design prowess to Birchbox. When we heard she came to us from a company specializing in hair dye for…down there…we knew we were going to love her. She’s currently rocking three tattoos—the one you don’t see is on her chest and says “The Lion’s Roar”—but she intends to be fully covered in ink eventually. We can’t wait see what’s next!
Name/Title: Alyssa (but you can call me Aly), Graphic Designer
Hometown: Queensbury, NY
Unofficial role: Social Butterfly
Fun fact: I’ve traveled to Spain, China, Thailand, and Japan. I love experiencing different cultures. I think my happiest moment was being on the Great Wall. It was breathtaking.
Beauty confession: I’m a serial hair changer. White blonde pixie cut, black elbow-length curls, fire engine red bob…you name it and I’ve done it. I actually just took my hair out of dreadlocks and this is the longest I’ve had my natural color grow out. I think I like it!
Currently loving: Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil. It gives my embarrassingly pale legs a nice golden sheen. Plus I can just put any extra that’s on my hands into my hair. This stuff does it all.
Worth the splurge: Any Kerastase hair products. They are hair lifesavers. Seriously.
Best beauty trick: Sometimes I’m too lazy to use a separate blush and lip product, so I just use a cream lipstick and dab some on my finger, then blend it onto my cheeks for a matching blush. If you use a light hand, it looks great and is super easy!
