Behind Unfiltered Beauty


Hey! I'm Alexa. I'm a licensed Esthetician, lash trainer, and the owner of Unfiltered Beauty. I'm a Michigan native, went to Esthetics school in Indianapolis, and finally landed in North Carolina. (Hello, Sunshine!) I'm a lover of all things local, my dogs- Willow, Pepper, & Harley, fun hair, pool days, spending time with my loved ones, and maybe some champagne on occasion ;) 


I love being able to offer a variety of services while still customizing each service to YOU. I love all parts of Esthetics, but I specialize in lash extensions and sunless tans. It's probably because those are times my OCD is celebrated! I'm both Classic and Volume trained in lashes and continue my education as much as possible. I love to teach people about lash health and uphold the highest lash damage here! In 2018, I collabed with EndureLash Pro to create the perfect classic and volume lash trays for lash artists. In 2020, I was added to the training team for EndureLash Pro-  I'm so excited to spread the love and art of lashes to other professionals!

I started my sunless tanning journey at Toast in Raleigh, training under Brenna Holt who is AMAZING! I started spraying in 2013 and have loved it ever since. I'm now multi-certified and offer tans both in studio and mobile. I proudly use BEETTAN Sunless. It's made from organic ingredients (Beet sugar and aloe to name a few) and won't dry your skin out! I'm mildly obsessed and it's made right in GA!
