I look forward to connecting with our guests every day and have been blessed to have developed long-term personal relationships with many of you.  Having been in the “beauty” industry for over 17 years, I have a keen perspective, intuition and passion for delivering superior guest experience. As a leader, it is my responsibility to my team to keep them on task making sure they achieve their personal goals and maintain the core values on which Sanctuary has been built.

Alder Guicardi


My career started as a hobby! But after years of giving myself haircuts, my family, friends and co-workers began to request my services. Within a short time I found myself taking care of a large group of people and my clientele was growing fast! It has now been 9 years since graduating and will never regret making that turn in my career! I am rewarded every day with each client by using my skills to help them look good and feel special.

Along with my passion for hair, I love to play the acoustic guitar and enjoy playing for my church. Originally from Brazil, I have been living in Orlando for the past 12 years where I met my beautiful wife, which along with my two baby girls is my motivation!

I am certified in Global Keratin, Schwarzkoph BlondeMe and Non-surgical hair replacement by Hair Vision International Academy.
