OUR TEAM


Janne Barickman

Stylist | Salon Owner

I fell in love with the cosmetology industry over a decade ago and took my first job at a salon in 2006. I graduated from Urban Academy in 2008 specializing in hair and makeup. I moved to Dallas, Texas in 2008 and assisted a master colorist until late 2009. I then started on my own in early 2010 back in Albuquerque and bounced around at a couple salons until July of 2012, when I decided to pursue my dream of traveling for six months. I came back to Albuquerque in January of 2013 when I started to really focus on building my career and settling into a groove. After gaining knowledge and experience at a few other salons, myself along with a friend and colleague decided it was time to pursue our own vision and opened ALT Salon in January 2015. In January 2016, I became the sole owner of ALT Salon and have never been happier! We have an amazing staff and team that is made up of very talented and unique individuals, without whom ALT would not be where it is today. Thank you for all the continuous support over the years, and I look forward to many more!

Diana Chaparro@djchaparro9

Stylist

Hello world! I graduated cosmetology school from Aveda Institute of New Mexico in February 2014. Ever since I was a little girl I can remember how much I loved getting my hair done. I would tell whomever was doing my hair that I was going to become a stylist. Years later, here I stand. Behind the chair, creating art, relationships, giving a listening ear, and most importantly making people feel beautiful. My goal is to make everyone that sits in my chair to feel and exude confidence. Who would think that a simple cut or color can do that! I love to bring out the inner beauty in everyone. I have been an apprentice at two salons while also doing hair. I learned a lot of things in both salons, especially what I want and don't want in a work environment. Now, I remain at ALT Salon, owned by Janne Barickman. The atmosphere in our salon is nothing but happy vibes. Whether you come to me or my fellow teammates, I can assure that you will experience a great, fun time with us!

Erin Sanchez@hair_in505

Stylist

I am a proud stylist at ALT Salon. I enjoy getting to know every client who sits in my chair, while making them feel good about themselves. Something that I feel is important in the ever changing cosmetology industry is learning new techniques and styles by taking classes. This education allows me to be the best that I can be for my present and future clients. The best part of my job is that I have teammates that are all very supportive and friendly which creates an awesome work environment. Come in and let me help you love your hair!

Paige Wolff@_rammpaige

Stylist | Makeup Artist

Hey friends! My name is Paige and I’m here to give you all the hair and beauty needs you deserve. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, New Mexico and moved to Albuquerque to pursue an education in cosmetology. My passion for hair and makeup began at a young age as I was always experimenting with different types of makeup looks and hair styles. I’ve been around the color wheel of hair color, that’s for sure! I graduated from Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy in 2017 and have been at ALT ever since. Not only are the people here supportive and encouraging, but we work as a team to ensure the happiness and satisfaction of the beautiful people that walk into our salon. Schedule an appointment and prepare to see pictures of my two shitzu puppies, Benji and Bunny. I love to create, play with color and most of all share my passions about the always evolving world of beauty!

Alysha Alvarez

Nail Technician

My name is Alysha. I was born in Fullerton California, but raised here in Albuquerque. Growing up I always had a passion for hair and nails. After attending UNM for a few years I decided it was finally time to go to school for something I’ve always had an interest in. In 2014 I attended Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy where I achieved my cosmetology license. After going through school I realized nails were my jam so I specialized in that. Four years later I still love what I do! Although I’m new to the ALT team, I’m very excited to see where my new journey takes me and I look forward to meeting all you beautiful people!

Kimberly Romero@beautytherapybykim

Stylist | Makeup Artist

Hi you guys! My name is Kimberly! I started my hair journey after I graduated with my B.A. in Psychology from UNM. I felt burnt out, unaccomplished, and uninspired and needed something more out of my perspective career. I had thought about what I liked and was always interested in and it was always hair and makeup. Soon after, I signed up for cosmetology school and graduated from Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy in 2016! Since then, I've enjoyed doing makeup and hair for special events and photoshoots, specifically destination weddings. Now in the salon atmosphere, I love all things hair: especially creative vivid color! Bringing to life someone's fantasy hair is always so satisfying. The absolute BEST part about what I do is making people feel really good about themselves! Seeing them light up from the inside out and the biggest smile break across their face is the best feeling in the world! At Alt Salon, I'm surrounded by other creative, passionate people that are always so helpful. I couldn't have found a better hair home and I can't wait to share that experience with all of my clients!
