WHAT'S UP?! I'M ASHLEY!

MEET YOUR SOON-TO-BE HAIR STYLIST AND MAKEUP EXTRAORDINAIRE, EXPERT SNUGGLER, & WEDDING NERVES COACH!

I'm Jackie's bestie turned business associate. The idea actually came from my husband who said to us one day, "You guys ought to go into business together, you can call it Snip-n-Snap!" We thought it was a genius idea. We've ran with it, and here we are today. Sometimes that husband of mine is a keeper! It has been pretty awesome working with my best friend, I suggest every one try it!

I seriously have the best job in the world. I get to spend my day making people feel beautiful. And as a PROUD hair stylist, there is nothing I love more than finishing with a client and seeing that look of happiness on their face. Knowing that I did make them feel beautiful. Seriously, it's the best! 

Everyone always asks me, "What made you decide to be a stylist?" I guess I feel like it was never a decision but more of a calling. I always would style my friends' hair for dances or parties when I was younger. So I think, deep down, even when I didn't know I was going to be a stylist; I really always knew. One of my favorite parts about doing hair and makeup on wedding days is being able to get to know clients on one of the biggest days in their lives in the hours leading up to walking down the aisle. I always feel like one of the girls hanging with my brides and the bridesmaids during prep time. I get in on all of the wedding day gossip, tons of laughs, and also... snacks. There's always snacks!

Traveling is the best! One thing I really hope I accomplish before I die, is I hope I get to see most of this beautiful world we live in. Some people are content with staying put, I am not. I've been lucky enough to have seen a good portion of the U.S. but unfortunately I've never left the country. I long to travel some where new and exciting and immerse myself into its land and culture. One day I know I will.

I'm a Marine wife! (Ooh rah! USMC pride right here!) My husband and I have been married for almost ten years now. That's like almost A DECADE! Its kind of crazy, sometimes even we can't believe we've been together that long. We are polar opposites but we balance each other out perfectly. We're the type of couple that you see us apart and think 'How in the heck do you two work?!,' but then you see us together and it makes perfect sense. We have a recently turned six year old son, Eian, with a little girl on the way due in February! Eian is just the craziest 'lil dude ever! I tell him all the time that he's my favorite, guess I'm going to have to stop doing that now! (He's still my bro though!) Being a Mommy is my first job. I never would have expected this crazy amount of love, fun, and gratitude that I feel when I think about the fact that I was given the position of being a Mommy!

In general I feel like I live a rather unextraordinary life, most of the time you can find me snuggled up on the couch with my wonderfully fluffy pooch binge watching Netflix. When I'm not doing that I like to go out and find quirky shops or restaurants, I'm a little bit of a foodie. 

If you would like to discuss hair, makeup, Marine life, or the proper way to binge watch an entire season of a show on Netflix feel free to contact us. I'd love to meet you and discuss all of your beauty needs for your big day!
