Oh I just typed a long paragraph to compliment her but I forgot to log in and it was all gone... Anyways, she is so awesome and she gave me a great haircut last Saturday and I feel sorry that I didn't know what to say right after the haircut because I always feel weird after restyling, and only five days, I've got so many compliments from my friends and even strangers! I love it!

Ashley is an amazing colorist and stylist! I was nervous about trying someone new, but after reading her reviews and seeing her work, I decided to try her out. I am so happy I did! I work in the beauty industry, so I'm pretty particular about my color and haircut, I've also work with a lot of different stylists. She made my blonde look better than I've ever seen it, and my haircut was exactly what I wanted. I will definitely be going back! Thank you Ashley!

I get compliments all the time since Ashley started doing my hair! My hair was not the right shade of blond and damaged the first time I went to her 5 years ago and after one visit with her my hair looked perfect and felt so healthy!! She really knows everything about blond hair. Since I have been going to her I have had golden, caramel and super blond highlights and every time it looks beautiful and is just what I asked for. Ashley is the best hair stylist for blond hair!!

The only person I trust with my hair. Ashley has been cutting my hair for over 4 years now. She's professional, talented, and full of great suggestions. I recommend her to anybody looking for a great experience. - David Miller

Ashley has been doing my hair for the last 6yrs. I have a ton of hair and I am VERY picky. Every time I sit down we discuss exactly what I want and she listens. She is always patient and gets the color perfect every time! And the cut--You will love the way she cuts your hair! I have long, thick hair and I wouldn't be able to manage it if it wasn't for the cut. It looks great whether I wear it straight, curl it, wear it up or down, or simply put it in a ponytail. You will love Ashley! She is a stylist to keep!

Ashley has been cutting and coloring my hair now for 3 years, and I will never again go to anyone else! I often want to put red into my hair and she always does it in a natural and flattering way. Her suggestions are fantastic, and I have always loved the results. She gives great tips on hair care and styling when I'm not in the salon. Aside from being extremely talented, Ashley is very personable and sweet- you will definitely not be disappointed!

Ashley used to do my hair (color/cut) at another salon a few years ago and I "happened" to find her again...and am SO glad I did! She is the BEST! I am VERY picky with my hair and no one does as good of a job as Ashley. She listens to what you want and is very professional..and so sweet! Erin H.

Personable, tasteful, detailed, artistic, professional and exquisite talent. Ashley is the total package and can design hair to exceed all expectations. Whether I describe a preferred look or show a magazine clipping, Ashley ensures my hair is exactly what i want and makes me look GOOD!! Plus, she explains how to style yourself, and explains very well! During a recent vacation, I was asked if i was in the hair and makeup industry by a stylist. This was the ultimate complement for me and reinforces Ashley's talents. She is better than stylists when i lived in New York. She is perfect for designing hair to complement YOU! Plus, she is the sweetest person, easy to talk to, and makes your experience enjoyable and relaxing. No problems with scheduling. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to look Great 24/7. Tiffanie

Ashley is not only an incredible person but a fantatsic stylist! She saved my wedding day at the very last minute when my pre-booked stylist canceled the day of my wedding. Ashley was able to do all six of my bridesmaids updos within a very short time frame because of such short notice. Thank you so much Ashley!!! I will forever be in debt to you for saving my wedding day!

Ashley has been cutting my hair for several years now. My haircut is so easy to style and low maintenance which is ideal for me! Ashley is very persistent and each time she cuts my hair I know It will be perfect when I leave. I am constantly getting compliments on my hair and happy to say I have a current, flattering short hairstyle that is not a "mom bob" :)
