Ashley has seven years of experience under her belt as a hairstylist. She specializes in transforming women’s hair, whether it's with a new cut or color or a smoothing treatment that reduces frizz and curls. When not behind a salon chair at Beauty Lounge, she immerses herself in advanced training on the newest haircutting, coloring, and coddling techniques.
Spalon Lifestyle founders Philip De Vo and Jaclyne Le began studying skincare and relaxation therapies after quitting corporate jobs that left them feeling physically and spiritually depleted.

Stylist Synphony presides over a chair at Simply Flawless Hair Salon, snipping up new looks and twisting hair into intricate braids. She elongates hair with glamorous weaves and treats clients to soothing massage conditioning treatments. The seasoned beautician also extends her expertise toward coloring services, including highlights and creative color.
As a licensed cosmetologist for 39 years and owner of Indulgence, The Salon for nearly half that time, Beverly Brunkhurst manages her staff of a dozen or so talented hairstylists with confidence. The crew calls upon Redken products as they cut and color locks amid the space’s sand-colored walls and rustic tile floors. They tame frizz with the Keratin Complex Smoothing treatment or a chair and whip and transform bobs and pixie cuts into long and flowing styles with four types of hair extensions. The resident nail technician, Lola, contributes to makeovers with gel overlays and pink and white fills, while makeup artists ready clients for a night on the town with applications and lessons. Styling clients, however, is only part of the Indulgence team’s job; they also contribute to various local organizations, including Seal Beach Animal Care Shelter, Project Shepherd, and Locks of Love.
True to its name, Hollywood Beauty Center takes pride in making clients feel and look beautiful at its Santa Monica location. With this mission in mind, salon stylists regularly perform a signature treatment—the smoothing Brazilian blowout. Coating strands with a strengthening protein, they diffuse frizz and leave clients' hair sleeker and more manageable until they start flying kites in the middle of lightning storms again. Stylists also have an adept hand with haircuts, coloring, facials, waxing, and nailcare.
