MEET THE TEAM
Hi, It's Ashley! The founder and lead stylist of The Stylist Abroad. It’s so nice to virtually meet you & I can’t wait to work together! Currently calling Alexandria, VA home, though I've lived in quite a few places & traveled even more. I love working with my brides. Their joy & hugs makes this literally the best job ever, (though I'd hardly call it work because I enjoy it so much). In my free time you'll find me on a hike with my pups & the hubs or relaxing with a good book. Either way a soy vanilla latte is likely to be in tow.
The BEST Hair Day!
"My bridal party and I felt so lucky to have had Ashley and her assistant Michelle there to get us ready for my wedding day! They took each of our visions for hairstyles and turned it into a reality. Ashley used extensions and worked with a few different hair textures throughout the day and everything turned out beautifully. Ashley provided me with the cutest little touch up bag with bobby pins and hair spray. My hair stayed perfectly throughout the day, I didn't even need it! But it was the perfect extra thing to throw in my bag on the honeymoon. Thank you so much Ashley and Michelle! Our day would not have been the same without you!"
Best. Stylist. Ever.
"I can’t say enough good things about The Stylist Abroad! Ashley and her assistant were PHENOMENAL! I had 10 bridesmaids and was worried that it would be difficult to pull off that many hairstyles in 5 hours! It was like magic watching the speed and ease at which they worked. It was effortless. My bridesmaids had varying hair lengths, thickness and textures and each asked for a different hairstyle. Ashley and her stylist didn’t skip a beat and each hair style was equally as beautiful.
Additionally, I absolutely LOVED my wedding hair— I got so many compliments! During the hair trial, Ashley was able to replicate the picture I brought in and we made adjustments based on my preferences. Ashley was also able to beautifully weave in my hair piece.
She was professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her enough! I would choose her again in a heartbeat."
"Ashley is a good human. I lead with that, because there are a lot of talented hairdressers (and she’s definitely that, too)... But, working with Ashley is more like hanging out with a friend. I booked her immediately after my first hair trial. I was also able to do a second trial to ensure I was happy with the final product, and Ashley made my day-of wedding hair more perfect than both. She’s incredibly professional, responsive, and her work speaks for itself. As an added bonus, her studio is like a little slice of boho heaven. She helped make my wedding day perfect, and I couldn’t recommend her more."
So so wonderful. Everyone's hair was beautiful
"I loved working with Michelle. She totally understood what I wanted and listened to my concerns. The hair trial was so easy and fun. Then at the wedding she really knocked it out of the park! My hair is really frizzy and I tend to sweat and she created an updo that lasted ALL NIGHT LONG. It was amazing. I have never seen my hair look that good. But even better than that she did the hair of my 90 year old grandma. Which was so so sweet of her and my Grandma was thrilled. Her hair looked so GREAT! I have never seen it look so full. Some wedding stylists will only do updos but the Stylist Abroad team did a blow out for my Grandma, my Mom and my MIL that were just absolutely beautiful and perfect. It really made everyone's day!"
Would Absolutely Recommend
"Ashley was great - incredibly professional, responsive, and flexible. We had many back and forth conversations regarding my hair style and what was possible with the look I was going for and the logistics of a heavy veil I needed to secure for my walk down the aisle. Even more, she listened patiently as I tried to describe the tweaks to my hairstyle (which isn't always easy to communicate!) and was able to figure out how to make that happen. The style I chose was more traditional, which she executed well. Had it been the right look for our wedding, I would have done something more romantic and looser, which she is very skilled at doing (from what I have seen from her other work). My bridesmaids were also very happy with the hair styles Ashely gave them. For all of us, our hair held through the entire day, which was warmer than we expected, and through the evening with dancing. I absolutely recommend Ashley. She also includes personal touches to her services, for a combined effect of professionalism but also warmth."
