Alex Williams

Owner / Operator

“My goal was to create a warm and elegant yet cutting edge salon where customers could enjoy the ultimate in hair care without the hassles of traveling into the city; A place that is unlike and unrivaled by any salon in the area; an environment that clients love, want to be in and are in no rush to leave. I researched the dos and don’ts of the best salons in the country and made sure that every inch of Axle would be of the highest possible quality. The salon was designed for maximum comfort, service, elegance and practicality. I believe we have accomplished that in building Axle. I want to earn the right to say that we are the best salon in the area.”
