Ashley was born and raised in Northern Virginia, right outside the hustle and bustle of Washington D.C. Growing up, she loved watching her mom do her hair and makeup every morning, and would always mimic what she saw, leading her to fall in love with the beauty industry.
After high school, Ashley worked for various makeup brands doing weddings and special events and her passion for the industry kept growing. She eventually decided that cosmetology school was the best fit for her, and attended Graham Webb Academy in 2013. After graduating from Graham Webb, Ashley went on to assisting in a high end salon in her area, where she discovered her passion for color and decided that she was going to attend as many classes as possible to hone her craft.
In February of 2019, Ashley attended Thrive NYC, and was inspired by the education from Ryan. She soon after set her sights on joining the Masters of Balayage team. Ashley has a passion for educating and is so excited to bring that passion to all who attend Masters of Balayage classes.
When she is not in the salon or traveling to educate, you can find Ashley spending all of her free time with her two dogs, Penelope and Sarge.
