Atelier by Christian Alexander is nestled in the iconic Bell Bros, a heritage listed art-deco building featuring marble foyers and Italian chandeliers. With just a small plaque notifying passers-by of its presence, the initial logic behind this hard-to-find salon was simple: Christian Alexander wanted somewhere that felt like a home, not a salon. The result is a luxurious salon and a celebrity clientele that has included Princess Zara Phillips, Jennifer Hawkins, Michelle Bridges and the late Amy Winehouse. Combining creativity, passion and 18 years of industry experience, Christian Alexander is an internationally renowned hairstylist and make-up artist whose philosophy exists in the creation of beauty and perfection. The salon provides a wide range of hair treatments for men and women. These include hair extensions, Brazilian blow-dries, beard trimming and hair colouring. Airbrush and wedding make-up services are also on offer. The team uses products from brands such as Oribe, Olaplex, Wella and Lakmé.
