Ashley knew she wanted to be a hair and makeup artist very early in life. Prior to pursuing the beauty industry, she made a point to graduate from San Diego State University with a bachelors degree in business management. After graduating in 2009, Ashley obtained her cosmetology license and has been working behind the chair doing haircuts, color services, extensions and Keratin treatments. Along with behind the chair services, Ashley specializes in special event hair and makeup specifically weddings and is working to build a special event beauty business. She has worked with short film cinematographers and on runway shows. In 2016, Ashley accepted a position at San Diego City College as an adjunct professor of cosmetology. She believes that education, communication and love are paramount in a successful business and life.
I've been getting my hair done by Ashley for several years, traveling over 60 miles to do so. I trust her with my cut and color every time! At this point, she knows what I am comfortable with, but also knows how to push me to try something new. I'm never worried when I leave about whether or not I will be in love with my hair, yet I always know I will still be able to recreate it when I get home myself.
Ashley has been cutting and styling my hair for years now, I absolutely love her! I wouldn't go to anyone else. She is also a fabulous make up artist! She did my make up and all 7 bridesmaids for my wedding, plus added the finishing touches on my wedding hairstyle and did my flower girls hair too. Ashley always goes above and beyond my expectations. She's not only a truly talented professional, but amazing person inside and out.
I've known Ashley for a few years and there isn't anyone I would trust more with hair and makeup. She has done my hair for several occasions, she has flawlessly applied my makeup (both regular and airbrush), and she even saved me in a crisis during my wedding week. Her haircuts are perfect and she's a true artist. Ashley is also a great listener and receptive to feedback. She makes everything look so easy! I'm so sad that I moved to a different state because she was my unicorn and I don't think I'll find another.
Ashley is an amazing artist and I'm always excited to see how my hair turns out. Since moving to San Diego I've tried several hair stylists and no one has met my needs for hair care until I met a Ashley. I have been seeing her every 6-8 weeks for 5 years. She is amazing with everything she does. I keep my hair short and she gives me amazing stylish cuts for my face shape. I usually go in with a general idea of what I want and she works her magic! Lately we have been experimenting with fun colors, and she has given me incredibly rich, vibrant color that with proper at home care, ( cold water washes, color safe shampoo etc) has lasted well through to my next service. This girl is the bomb.com and can make your hair dreams come true!
Ashley Iverson is a master at her craft! She has been my stylist for about 7 years now, and she feels more like part of my family. She gives you her full attention your entire appointment, your color, cut, style will ALWAYS be on point, and more than you ever dreamed. At one point I moved from San Diego to Palos Verdes Estates in l.a., I still drove from l. a. to San Diego as I will always be loyal to ONLY Ashley! She's soooo worth it with her skills, flexibility and kindness; I wish I could give here 100 stars.
