About Ashley

Ashley’s career as a hairstylist began in Redlands, California a decade ago. She has continually trained with top artists and brands within the beauty industry including Aveda and Davines. Her specialties are hairpainting, blonding, color formulation, and color correction.

The knowledge she has gained through intensive training with mentors and behind the chair experience has lead her to many opportunities including teaching advanced education for hairstylists. Ashley moved to San Diego in 2013 to finish her degree in writing at the University of California San Diego.

It is in San Diego where she decided to take her passion for the industry another step forward to become an independent hairstylist and eventually the owner of a salon studio space, The Opal. This space is offered to all of its guests with pride and integrity. As her career continues to grow, Ashley looks forward to all opportunities it brings including a subset platform for both beauty and creative writing. With her hands in your hair along with her passion and drive, it is her hope each guest leaves feeling not only ecstatic about their appearance but relaxed, connected, and loved.
