My name is Ashley Brooke Behlings. I am 22 years old, married to my best friend Willie, and living life to my fullest! I went to Black Hills Beauty College just a couple months after I got married, and graduated on New Years Eve, 2011. What a way to celebrate the end of that year!
My mom also went to BHBC, here in Rapid City when she was in her twenties. She always cut my hair, and my families. I knew the smell of perm by the age 7 probably. I loved playing with perm rods, and I loved combing and playing with my moms hair while growing up! And of course I chopped my Barbies hair off, and found the food coloring for “hair color”. So, I do think I kind of always knew I would be doing this, doing hair, and hopefully helping people look and see that they’re beautiful… not to mention the Barbie…
Willie and I bought our first home in the spring of 2012, and since then we have been knocking down walls, painting new bedrooms, updating the kitchen, and making our home a “home”. With all of that, I then realized that I wanted to open my in home salon.
I love the fact that I get to run my own business, be my own boss and do things the way I want to. It’s a little overwhelming at times but I know this will teach me a lot and help me become a better business woman. Bring on the QuickBooks!
So, enough about me, let me tell you about my salon. When you come into my salon, the first thing I want you to feel is welcomed. Secondly, intrigued. I want to help you find your look, and I want to help teach you how to maintain that look. In the salon you will see a lot of the things I like, the styles and colors I enjoy, and I hope it comes across as a warm, inviting atmosphere. I want each and every client, at any age, to feel comfortable, not just in the salon, but in their “style”, in their “look”.
So, there’s a little about me and about my new salon. I hope you will give me the chance to try a new look on you, or if you have your style already, let me help maintain it. Also, I want to be accommodating for you. I am open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and to be compliant with city rules, I am not really supposed to accept “walk-ins”. But please, just call ahead, I do want to earn your business, and of course, I don’t want to turn people away. There is a plus to this though, you can book any service online on my website! It’s a great an easy tool to use, and it even sends you a reminder about your upcoming appointments. Just sign up with your email address, create a password, and you’re set! For those of you who aren’t so compatible with the web at this time, no worries, just give me a call and I’ll work you in at a time convenient for you!
Well thank you for reading this! I hope to see you soon at Ashley Brooke Salon & Spa!
