So far this year we have introduced you to Breona, Shari, Lisa & Ivana. We hope you have enjoyed getting to know our stylists on a more personal level. Next Up, Ashleigh Snipes...
If your looking for a mix of eclectic style, colorful class and sass- Ashleigh is your girl. With over 10 years experience, outrageous style and a passion for self expression, Ashleigh isn't afraid to look outside of the box to find just the right look for you.
Ashleigh's career began her Junior year in High School Cosmetology as an excuse not to take gym. Over time Ashleigh grew into her passion for hair and color. Not only that, but she discovered she had real skill when it came to making people look and feel beautiful.
One of Ashleigh's favorite things about being in the beauty industry is that the product and styles are always evolving- there is always something new to learn and experience.
Ashleigh is available Tuesday-Saturday by appointment.
What is your greatest inspiration?
My greatest source of inspiration first off is Stevi Loren herself. She's been an inspiration to me from the very first time we worked together at Great Clips in Waxahachie and she was hired on as the receptionist.
She showed up for her 2nd day of work with bright, flamingo pink hair and I was just in awe of her bravery! This was over 10 years ago when not every average Joe had bright, un-natural colors in their hair.
She showed me its OK to take chances and try new things, not just in my business with hair and beauty but also in life. Clients also inspire me. Sometimes all it takes is a new face with a new personality and images will flood my brain with all the different cuts, colours, and colour placements we could play with.
What is one thing most people don't know about you?
One thing most people don't know about me is that I can usually go 7-8 days without shampooing my hair and you would never be able to tell. Oh, and that I'm a huge fan of Tim Burton animated movies!
What is your life motto?
My life motto changes with the wind but I would say right now my motto would be YOLO!! You Only Live Once!

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Shortly after Breona's Spotlight, we announced that she would be leaving the salon to pursue a career in teaching and focus on her family! We are proud to announce that she is expecting a baby this year! Congrats Breona! We love & miss you!
Now following Ivana's Spotlight, I again have to inform you of some news in the salon! Our dearest sweet Ivana who has been a part of our salon since her senior year in high school has "spread her wings" and has relocated to Corpus Christi, Texas, where she will continue to pursue her career in the hair industry. We will miss her dearly but a girl trip to meet halfway in Austin this summer has already been planned so we are making the best of it!!!
I thought I would be so sad when these girls left and in a way I still am but I am so excited for them for following their hearts passion, wherever it might take them. That is so important!
I am looking forward to the new faces and upcoming fresh ideas and inspiration for Stevi Loren Salon! Just wait...its gonna be FABULOUS!!!
Going with the flow,
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
This is one of my favorite pictures of my grandma, Betty Jo Smith. I know she continues to look down on us! Love you Grandma! -Your first & favorite granddaughter, Steph
