A Chat with Ashley Smith Fernandez
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I offer makeup and hair styles for any occasion. I specialize in weddings, but I love doing makeup or hair for special events like holiday parties, work parties, social gatherings, birthdays, quinceneras and more! My business stands out because I truly listen to the clients needs and wants!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Ever since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with makeup and hair! I started doing makeup and hair when I was in high school (around the age of 15) for local bands or local photoshoots, then it just blossomed into a career!
What do you love most about your job?
The instant gratification you get from seeing your client happy with how they look!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I had a bride for a trial run and she was really worried about her nose and how it would look in pictures. I explained what "contouring" is and how a shadow can define someone's facial features or hide them. We contoured her nose, she cried, and I had to do it all over again!
