Ashly has been passionate about hair for as long as she can remember. In High School she got a Receptionist position at a local salon in Fort Collins, CO (Ashly is a native). She fell so in love with hair styling that she attended school as early as possible. Fast forward to today Ashly has over a decade of experience as a Stylist and truly falls more in love with her career each year.
Ten years into her career Ashly knows that she works in a constantly evolving industry. She is continuously seeking out advanced education both locally and nationally. She has taken several classes at Toni&Guy, including their Modern Classic Cuts and Modern Classic Color Programs. She traveled to Unite Academy for courses in creative and editorial styling. Most recently she accomplished finishing an intensive program at the Wella Studio in Los Angeles where she earned her the title of “Master Color Expert”. Ashly’s successes at Wella led to a Position as a Wella Brand Educator allowing her to teach color technique not only in Colorado but throughout the Country.
Ashly’s strong background in industry education allows her to truly understand a client’s wants. She is able to transform their words into a unique and tailored style for each individual. She enjoys everything from the most classic styles to creating those that are more cutting edge.
While Ashly’s first passion is her career in hair, she also loves living in her home state of Colorado, where she is able to get outdoors and explore. Recently she purchased a 125-year-old home, her first home in Denver, and is excited about slowly renovating it. Her Boston Terriers Champ and Rosie love it equally as much.
