Alexandra Gerard, Social Media Director
Alexandra is a Milwaukee transplant and a DePaul graduate. With a degree in creative writing and a passion for human computer interaction, Alexandra curates Blowtique’s strategically beautiful online presence. “One of my favorite things is a perfect Instagram aesthetic. It’s something I’m constantly trying to achieve with Blowtique.” As our social media director, Alexandra curates our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, writes our blog, serves as our ad hoc photographer, and maintains the Blowtique website.
“Everything about my job is creative and that’s why I love it. The hair and beauty industry is an artform and I’m lucky enough to be able to document it in a way that allows me to show it off as something fresh, adaptable, easily digestible, and deeply personal. Beyond that, I genuinely believe that Blowtique is above and beyond other salons -- every time I’m in the salon or I attend one of our DIY Hair Camps, I am completely blown away by how talented our stylists are at hair design, but also how talented they are in their ability to teach clients personalized, lifelong techniques.”
Whenever Alexandra returns to Milwaukee, she loves to visit her mother’s consignment shop, Ivana’s Trunk, and her family brewery, Brenner Brewing. Alexandra is the proud owner of a 17 year old cat named Bread, whom you can see at @alexgerardsucks. You're likely to run into Alexandra at Innertown Pub.
