ASHLEY MENDES

HAIR   |   MAKEUP   |   LASHES

There are a few things in life that Ashley loves most… her family and friends, her daily iced venti caramel macchiatto, and exercising her artistic side!  As a second generation hair and makeup artist, Ashley has always had a soft spot for making people feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.  Ashley continually strives to meet the needs and expectations of anyone who sits in her chair.  Making education a priority, she stays up to date with current techniques and trends by immersing herself in advanced education through top industry academies and independent educational sources.  Anyone who knows Ashley can attest that she loves to laugh, have fun and is a true perfectionist.  From cuts and color to bridal styling, her attention to detail is unparalled!  When she isn’t in the studio, she can be found snuggling with her fur babies, Bunny and Bear, or watching This is Us.
