Why She’s Awesome: Hair stylist, Cynthia Alvarez is a newbie when it comes to celeb styling. But from her resume, you might assume she’s a 15+ year veteran. What you soon realize is that she’s climbed some pretty steep industry mountains in a just short period of time. Her journey began as a child watching her mother and other female relatives transform their personal looks through fabulous hair cuts, edgy colors and trendsetting styles. Cynthia was inspired by the creativity of these women and the versatility that hair can have. She took her raw talent, creativity and inspiration and began styling the hair of family and friends.

After graduating high school, Cynthia had plans of joining the Air Force. But after a series of chance encounters, and true direction from above, she found herself on the path to becoming a hair stylist. Mentored by industry veteran Tippi Shorter, Cynthia received invaluable knowledge and insight into the celebrity glam business. Soon after her decision to make hair her only focus, she was given the opportunity to work with Alicia Keys on her world tour. Perfect timing, impeccable skills and her raw award-worthy talent allowed Cynthia to tour with Alicia Keys and Shakira twice around the world.

Cynthia has earned the trust of Hollywood’s hottest starlets and is definitely “one to watch!”
