It’s Wedding Wednesday and we are back with another KiSSandMaKeUp CT wedding hair and makeup artist introduction! Meet Ashley!
Ashley grew up in a house full of women, which surely contributes to her self-admitted girly-girl persona. She has always been very creative and while she began her career in marketing, Ashley has been lucky enough to change her path and start a new career in the CT bridal beauty industry.
Figuring it would appeal to her creative side, Ashley studied Communications at UCONN. After graduating with her Bachelor’s degree, she landed a job at an industrial auction company. She loved certain aspects of the job but was looking for an opportunity to be even more hands-on and creative. This is when Ashley started down the path of her true passion-cosmetology. Her love for creativity, art, and makeup was all it took to convince her to get certified.
Ashley focuses on enhancing each client’s natural beauty. Her goal is for every bride to look like themselves on their wedding day, just the 2.0 version! She is a big fan of airbrush makeup and creating dewy, glowing skin with lashes. But she is also not afraid of doing something fun, like using a bold lip or smoky eye. It isn’t hard for Ashley to achieve a wide array of looks because she keeps her kit stocked with all the best brands. While she loves focusing on natural beauty for her clients, Ashley’s personal style can be summed up in two words – lipstick always!
Not only does she love providing beauty services, but she loves spending her time with empowering women (girl power)! Ashley hasn’t regretted her career change for one second. She loves her job and even more, the time it affords her to spend with her son Miles (who will soon be a big brother)! Miles is a smiley, happy, and wild 1 year-old who keeps her very busy!
In her free time, this self-proclaimed girly girl can also snowboard with the best of them! She has been snowboarding since she was 11 years old and can’t wait to teach her boys so they can head down the mountain together. When she isn’t chasing Miles around or shredding the mountain, Ashley is a big fan of watching anything on Bravo (including all of the Real Housewives), walking on the beach and visiting with her sisters and family.
