THE NAME GAME
The name for Anger & Artistry came about at the time Alexandria Anger was a new mom and made the decision to start her own business. She wanted a name that was catchy, left a little mystery and was also something that had a more unisex vibe to it. Alexandria enjoys many different art forms and believes those should be celebrated and supported within our community… and so Anger (referring to who) & Artistry (referring to an all encompassing artistic platform) was born.
Anger & Artistry’s passion is to create an environment for clients to relax and enjoy a pampered experience, taking a break from the outside world i.e - busy-ness, social media and cell phones. We encourage you to bring a book, read a magazine or just relax and enjoy the chill time.
Anger & Artistry firmly believes beauty is not just skin deep. Maintaining interest in the client’s beauty as a whole, continuous education, staying on top of trends as well as creating our own will always go hand in hand with our work.
This is Anger & Artistry. We are team players in the business of self-esteem building through conversation, pampering and ultimately great hair. We will fight for your hair's right to party.
ALEXANDRIA (ALI) ANGER
Infusing love and creativity into everything she does, Ali Anger is the samurai of hair artistry. This Amika Pro Educator reigns from Ontario, Canada. As an award-winning stylist, Ali believes the root of a successful career is in continual education along with keeping a burning passion for the craft of anything hair.
While Ali has over 20 years' experience in the trade as a stylist and 8 years as a salon owner, she sees everyday as an opportunity to learn something new. Her passion is to give back to her industry and clients, revealing people's inner beauty just as much as it appears on the outside and training the new up and coming talent.
She's experienced with the stage and competing, editorial work, instructing in the classroom and working behind the chair. She loves the juxtaposition hair brings of angles and curves, masculine and feminine, sleek and textured, braids and curls.
Aside from hair... she loves shoes, hip hop and chocolate milk. You may spot her out from behind the chair on the soccer field, dance floor or running around town with her hubby, kids and pooches!
Evan is our amazing main barber. His passion for Barbering, fashion trends and serving the clients in his chair is what makes him so unique. He's eager to stay on his education game and keep upping the ante. Evan has a unique personality for the barbering world. He is naturally an introvert and empath. He is happy to chat and makes a great person to confide in and at the same time he can understand if you just need a quiet appointment to sit back and chill. His hot towel shaving services are out of this world too!
Evan has also been the plant man around here. When guests come in and complement our plants, the rest of us can’t take any credit for it. If its green and growing in our shop, it's because of him. He keeps the luscious greenery and clean air going. He's also Mr. Fix it who loves to help us keep our tools up to par. I guess he's got a few titles besides Barber extraordinaire.

Hey my name is Rachel! I’m a recent graduate of Niagara College. I can’t say when my love of hairdressing first started. From the moment my scissors touched hair I was hooked. My favourite hair services are creative colours and balayage. I’m excited to build my career in the hair industry.
My favourite thing to do besides hair is be creative. I love making paintings or drawings and I’ve taught myself to sew, knit, macramé, and crochet. I also have a love for collecting new plants, which my husband is thrilled about.

Hi there, my name is Cydney! I'm a very creative, hands on and hard working kind of person. I'm a young mom here working my way to the top. My daughter Violla is what keeps me striving for my best everyday. In high school I started my passion for hair by joining a cosmetology program at Collegiate for 2 years. I continued on my journey through Niagara College Hairstyling and that's when I knew this was the job for me!
Coming up with new ways to cut or color, exploring infinite possibilities is something I wouldn't miss for the world. I'm open to learning everything and really hope to add extensions, wigs, facials and makeup to my services soon! Creative people are curious, flexible and persistent, it's seeing what others can see and thinking what no one else ever thought.
