Specialties: Education Director. Custom haircuts and color. Textured & precision cuts. Balayage. Blondes & Brondes.

Ashley’s passion for hair began at a young age, forcing her dad to let her put rollers and clips in his hair, then as a teenager destroying her moms bathroom while cutting and coloring hair for all of her high school friends. At 18 she was introduced to the world of high end salons and fashion photography during her time in Chicago. She moved back to Atlanta in 2010 and began her education at the Aveda Institute of Atlanta. In 2011 she began her career at Van Michael Salon as a cut specialist, absorbing as much knowledge and skill as she could before setting out on her own. Through the years she’s explored education, and innovated styling techniques. She has a passion for editorial work, some of which has been published. Now she returns to Kelsey Erin Salon as our Education Director to share her knowledge and methods. She dedicates her spare time to browsing high end fashion editorials for inspiration, continuing education, and teaching her daughter about her industry. It is her belief that “Fashion does not exist without exceptional hair”.
