Ashley is amazing with curly hair, both cuts and color. She understands what types of color work with curls and what doesn't. She'll be honest with you about your crazy color ideas and help you to come up with something beautiful that fits your curls, your personality, and your skin tone. Her cuts are top notch! If you're tired of the same old boring cut and feel like you are in a rut and maybe want something kinda funky, fear not for Ashley will actually help you to realize your goals and not shut you down as sometimes happens with curls. So many times I've been told that I have two options, grow it out long or get a boring bob. But now I have the cutest short wedge type thing and adorable bangs, something I never thought possible with my crazy bouncy curls! I've been to several "curly girl" salons in Portland and this is my favorite by far! Not stuffy or pretentious; the salon itself is laid back and adorable. Good music, nice people, great location, and there's a bonus: really good pie next door.
