Hi. My name is Desiree Aleman. I grew up in Temple, and have known that I wanted to become a beautician since I was in the third grade. I attended Temple High School and simultaneously earned my cosmetology license before I graduated through their Cosmetology CTE Program. I am a Certified Redken Haircolor Authority, but I also enjoy doing nails and makeup along with hair color. My goal as a stylist is to make people look and feel great!
