All about ash

The hairstylist + owner of ash.blondes

Hi babes! I’m Ashley Karras! I am an Aveda-trained colorist who graduated in 2015 with a cosmetology license. Little did I know, 5 years later I would be specializing in blondes & love having my own business! I am very fortunate to call The Suite Loft my second home. Not only am I passionate about the industry, but I love being challenged with each guest who sits in my chair with their story, what they want, & their vision. I crave learning about all things hair, especially new blonding techniques & the newest extension applications. 

 So what’s the story being ashblondes? I’ve been creating cool-toned color since beauty school, & my name is (obviously) Ashley! I spent months thinking of a perfect name for my business. The most authentic, true to myself, fun name I came up with was ASHBLONDES. I love more than anything to give a guest an ashy blonde that they’ve dreamed of, AND it has my name in it.

I care about the longevity of a color service & the quality of my work. I always gear my guests towards a low maintenance + lived-in look. Why? Because I want my guests to not only feel a confidence boost as they leave my chair, but also want them to have that feeling 4+ weeks later. On top of my lovely blonde babes,  I have a passion for braiding & hand tied extensions. 

Away from work, I love spending time with family & friends.. + my dogs Landon & Meera. Recently, traveling has become a huge hobby of mine & I cannot wait to see what else I can learn from it. Most of the time I try to be outdoors, but sometimes I simply enjoy watching  F R I E N D S  with my husband! This last fall I recently became married to my high school sweetheart, & this next year I will be diving into educating at The Suite Loft. I’m excited to share more of my technique & story with all of you! 

I can’t wait to chat with you more & create your dream hair! 

– xoxo ash
