Over the past decade, Alex Chases Salon has attracted an international coterie of discerning, style-conscious clients, including leading philanthropists, top business executives, as well as visiting royalty and heads of state. 

Chases is renowned not only for his craft and skill with proportions and scissors - evident in his flattering cuts, but also for his relaxed approach and warmth, always providing his full attention to making each guest feel extraordinary. Truly versatile, he is a master of all color effects and is especially beloved for the beautiful blonde tones he creates.

“I’m originally from La Jolla, so I grew up surrounded by - and studying - the best blondes,” said Chases. “This really inspired me. Since I started my career, my goal has been to achieve the most alluring, natural and flattering blonde tones that are simple to maintain.”

As a result of Chases’ reputation for excellence, he is currently booking appointments one year in advance.
