Artistry Fargo consists of 2 Master Cosmetologists, Alina & Tashia. Scroll down to read more about them!
I’m Alina Wacek! Owner and operator of Artistry by Alina/Artistry Fargo, dog mom to Ollie and Hudson, and wife to Tony Wacek. I am originally from St. Michael, MN and moved to the Fargo/Moorhead area in 2013. I graduated from The Salon Professional Academy in March of 2016. Shortly after, I obtained my Master Cosmetologist License and opened Artistry by Alina in West Fargo on May 12th, 2017. A couple years later, I decided I needed more in my life so I hired an employee, moved to a bigger salon space, and Artistry Fargo was born April 15th, 2021.
At Artistry Fargo, I specialize in all things hair and skin, but my true passion lies behind blonding services and eyelash extensions. I believe learning does not stop after graduation, so I continually educate myself on industry trends, new techniques and more to become the best I can be at the services that I offer my clients. I chose this career because beauty is something I have been truly passionate about since my early teen years. I love knowing that I’m able to contribute to someone’s beauty and to genuinely build a friendship with each and every one of my clients.
When I’m not at work, I really enjoy Netflix, hanging out with my friends, husband and dogs, traveling, and spending an unnecessary amount of money on Amazon. I am just a plain ol’ gal who enjoys her life and genuinely loves her career. I am an open book so if you have any questions or just ever want to chat, feel free to reach out!
I’m Tashia, wife of Bryan Gunderson and dog mom to a Yorkie Terrier, Tucker and a Husky/Lab, Ziggy. I come from the one stop light town of Fosston, MN. Blink as you drive through and you’ll miss it!
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve believed that everyone is beautiful and I wanted to make everyone feel that way by enhancing the natural beauty they already had. I went to Josef’s School of Hair Design in Grand Forks, ND and fell in love with doing hair. I graduated in March 2016 and later became certified in eyelash extensions as well. I love seeing a persons eyes light up when their services are finished and they see the beauty I already saw in them when they walked in the door. I truly believe in the saying “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
When I’m not working, I spend my spare time at the gym or my FAVORITE, curled up on the couch with my dog while binging true crime documentaries and horror movies!
