Born and raised in the Midwest, Ashley began her career in the Chicago market. After relocating to Southern California, she splits her time between the west coast and the midwest to service both private and commercial clientele. Specializing in on-location hair and makeup for weddings and special events, she focuses on session artistry for commercial and editorial print work as well.
Ashley has been internationally published both online and in print for her work in hair and makeup artistry, wardrobe styling and creative design/directorship. Her favorite projects are those that she is able to collaborate with and see from conceptualization (start) to presentation (finish). She doesn’t just see the look, she sees the whole story and the world in which it lives.
Through her work and training with brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Aveda, Nars and Smashbox, and behind the scenes at shows for both Bridal Fashion Week New York and London Fashion Week - Ashley has learned to master a variety of artistic styles, techniques and approaches to client relations in face-paced, high-volume environments. This further inspired and propelled her towards a career in bridal and editorial hair and makeup.
Having trained under and worked for some of the top bridal and on-location beauty studios in the Chicagoland area, Ashley learned to adapt to the needs of clients of all ages and from all backgrounds. Licensed in cosmetology, she has gone through advanced training in airbrush makeup as well as brow shaping, and is also certified in hair extensions. With over 150 weddings under her belt spanning from Florida to California to Chile and beyond, it’s safe to say that versatility is a central theme. Ashley’s signature beauty/bridal style is best described as “the timeless bombshell”; a fresh, elegant look with a sensual, lit from within glow.
