I owned and operated my own business for six years, a time that was deeply healing and restorative for me as a stylist. Leaving the big salon environment was crucial to slowing down and learning what I wanted for my career next. In the last year I have begun to offer group and one-on-one straight razor haircutting classes to my local stylist community here in Seattle. This year has been instrumental in understanding how I want to show up in this industry and give back to my hair community by offering education on a local level on my most favorite subject, straight razor haircutting. You can now find me holding classes at my salon home, zero.

Straight out of high school, I started my career at 17 in Seattle, WA at The Gary Manuel Aveda Institute. Upon graduation, I was hired by a well-established salon, Coupe Rokei, where I completed a rigorous two year apprenticeship and continued to grow my skills by attending countless classes with top educators and brands such as Bumble and Bumble, Oribe, R+CO, Corinna Hernandez, V76 and LaBiosthetique to name a few. 
 
Education has always been an important part of my career, I have been fortunate enough to receive a wealth of education and mentorship opportunities. I quickly discovered my own love for teaching and joined an education team where I was responsible for mentoring and educating the salon's apprentices. I taught one-on-one haircutting and styling classes weekly for three years before I left to open my own salon, High Post.


a deep passion for giving back 

Stay tuned...

something exciting coming soon!




 



 


Creativity, intuition and technical awareness are key principles that embody straight razor haircutting. This class will help you understand the foundations of this tool and the technical side of the razor while also giving you guidance on how to craft a haircut using your developed aesthetic and self-trust to create a look that is unique to the individual.

I will showcase two elevated yet functional haircuts, both with a shag focus. This class will be wonderful for stylists getting newly acquainted with the straight razor AND for stylists with more experience looking to broaden their razor knowledge or gain inspiration.

Quality education that is actually worth the money is sometimes really hard to find. Allegra is not just super organized, knowledgeable, and professional… she shows up for her students in a very real and approachable way. She’s very thoughtful, intentional, and communicates the theory and philosophy behind the razor very clearly. Her ability to meet people where they’re at and help them methodically move through their individual challenges and blocks is what makes her an amazing educator. I walked away from the class feeling like I suddenly had a solid foundation with the razor, and now I have the tools to actually play and be creative with it. The class has exceeded my expectations.

- Braeden B.

I have more confidence about my approach to a razor cut, especially being more mindful about the angle in which I am running the blade over and through the hair.

- Sonja L.

Allegra is so clear in her education process that it’s really streamlined for every day use. She helped my confidence grow ten fold with razor cutting and now I use the razor daily on my clients! She’s so easy to talk to, very patient, and so extremely skilled at her craft!

- Cori K.

Allegra brings passion, creativity, and intuition to her education offerings with a solid background of technical skill. Her classes disrupt our patterns and demand a more deliberate and thoughtful approach to our actions, resulting in personal growth and professional innovation.
