Alin started her beauty journey in 1993 when she graduated from beauty school in Lincoln, Nebraska. Nebraska couldn’t contain her creativity and style and she moved to the Northwest 5 years later. In 1997, while living in Portland, she truly fell in love and started working with dreadlocks. Her hair adventures took her to New York next, where she found herself working side by side with Sonja Peterson, the founder of Hair Police NYC.
It was there in New York, that Dollylocks® was born. 2 years later, Alin said goodbye to the cold weather and moved Dollylocks® to St. Petersburg, Florida. A decade and a whole bunch of sunshine later, the all natural, chemical free Dollylocks product line was born.
Nowadays, Alin spends her days running Dollylocks®,educating other stylists and creating beautiful hairstyles.
