About Ashley!

Why did you want to become a hair stylist?

I’ve been braiding for 14 years now and coming out of high school I still wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in life. I didn’t want to just go to college because it was the thing to do and get myself into debt. So my passion for braiding led me to hair school, and here I am.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Driven, perfectionist, passionate.

What’s your favorite part about working at XEX?

Meeting people from all walks of life.

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Spend time with my family.

What’s the nicest thing a client has said to you or about you?

I’ve gotten many compliments which is what drives me to continue to work harder, to get better. But I’d say when a client cried to me on how I made her feel beautiful when she was going through a season in her life.

Is there anything else you’d like people to know about you?

Hair is my passion. Although I have a busy life outside of the salon, I still make sure to take classes and continue to become a better me so I can continue to give my clients the best version of myself.
