Alejandro is a totally self-taught artist. In middle school, he started watching videos on how to do a fishtail braid. Then he got into a cosmetology school and braiding became his favorite thing to do in his downtime. For his 19th birthday, he only asked his mom to buy him a wig and that was actually the start of his more intricate work. After being at school for 10 hours he would then go home to braid on his wig.
