Alexandra Briand​
Master Stylist/Owner

Xtreme Lashes Stylist of the Month on August 2010

Alexandra was born in Argentina and raised in Peru and Miami.​ ​ During and after High School her focus was in Visual Arts. After completing her 3rd year in New World School of Arts she decided that she wanted to do something that was helpful to society and turned her focus to an area that had captured her curiosity, Alternative Health Care.​​​​ Alexandra completed Massage and Acupuncture Degrees at Acupuncture and Massage College in 2000 and 2003 respectively.​ While studying Natural Health Care she got involved in Tai Chi and Yoga. She took 2 Yoga Teacher Trainings and taught for the next few years before opening her own wellness center, Qi Balance Wellness Center, neighboring her brother’s hair studio, Gustavo Briand Hair Studio. Alexandra had envisioned this, a place where Natural and organic beauty services would also be offered, aside from Acupuncture, massage, reiki and private yoga classes. This led her to study Aesthetics and during this time​ she came across Xtreme Lashes and decided to take a course. It was love at first sight! And the first time she felt that all of her skills and gifts blended to shine to the same importance. About a year and a half later, Qi Balance Wellness Center became Sultry Eyes Lash Studio, the first Lash Studio in Miami and Miami Beach. The first place to focus on eye beauty and to enhance each individual’s own beauty. Alexandra is also an National Certified Xtreme Lashes Trainer, one out of 20 elite ladies.
