I have BIG BIG NEWS to tell all of you!!

I don’t like surprises… because I always end up messing them up and ruining the moment!…  Christmas is always bad for me.  :) Very rarely Willie, my husband, will be surprised by a gift, because he already found out what it was… Anywho!!

I will just leave you with a hint for now!  :)

Happy guessing!! …. I know… real hard, huh? ;)

WOW!! Ashley Brooke Salon & Spa has been open for almost one year now!  It’s so exciting to me! 

I’ve got my place organized and decorated just the way I want it!  (Thanks to my mom!)

I’m so thankful for this journey…Having my own salon, owning my own business, and having such amazing clients!!  I’m so happy to have met all my new clients, and happy to have all my friends and family supporting me!

Christmas is coming up very soon!  I think that it’s going to creep up faster than we realize… But I’m sure we’re all looking forward to spending time with our families and celebrating!

This month we are having a Christmas Special!  15% off ANY service/appointment booked online throughout the month of December!  Also, whenever you are in the salon you get to put your name in our Raffle for a Christmas Pedicure! :) 

Keep in mind, we offer Gift Certificates and that’s a great Christmas idea… Perfect for stocking stuffers or for that special someone you just might not know exactly what to get.  And you will receive 15% off of the Gift Certificate Purchase also!


Hope you all are staying warm… Lots of cold, snowy days ahead!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas!!

I hope that everyone had a great Christmas Eve and Christmas day!! I did! I spent a lot of Christmas Eve with Willie, just home relaxing, which was so nice!!  We spent Christmas day with my parents and grandparents….and all the babies!  And we got a lot of snow, so their fireplace was lovely!!

Our Holiday Open House went great!  My mom made so much food!!! But we took all the left overs to church for the little kids, as a thank you for the Christmas program.   I want to thank everyone who came to the open house!  And thanks to all of you for getting the word out!  Word-of-mouth really does work, and help. So thanks!

~Now on with the Giveaways!!!~

Up first is a free Men’s Haircut!…. And the winner is…. Aaron Wendt!  Congrats to you!!

Our second giveaway is for a free Women’s Haircut!…..Congratulations Vici Duran!!

Week Two!

My second week in the salon was a success!

My favorite part was Friday.  I had three wedding updo’s I did, which was so fun! I love doing updo’s.  My niece, Brooke was one of them, and she was so cute while I curled her hair and braided it.  She did very good, I suppose watching Mickey Mouse on the iPad helped a bit, and the candy cane afterwards…  I did matching styles on Brooke and Kellie, her mom.  We started with a french braid at the front, right side of the hair line, and I worked it down towards the left side of the nape.  Then I spiral curled the remaining hair and the end of the braid to blend it in.  In Kellie’s hair, I also put a small french braid in her fringe.  In Brooke’s, we just did a soft curled fringe.

Here are some of the photo’s I took, and you can see more on the Ashley Brooke Salon & Spa Facebook Page.  Also, be sure to like the page!! And any pictures you like!

First week down…One million to go!

   I finished up my first week in my new salon!  It was awesome!!  I was pretty busy this last weekend with some great clients, and this week I’m already off to a good start too!  So I’m thanking God for provision, and thanking everyone for getting the word out, thank you!

   Upcoming news for this week is making me so excited!  I’ve been holding back for a couple weeks but… here it is!! Tonight we are announcing: Ashley Brooke Salon & Spa Holiday Open House/Grand Opening!! Saturday December 22nd, 2012.  12:00-3:00 pm.  Wow!  That feels good to get off my chest!…  I do hope you all will join us for this great celebration! We will be having refreshments and goodies, and best of all, pre-booking specials!!  If you pre-book any service during the Open House you will receive a 10% off discount on that service!  Who doesn’t love a great deal?!

   I will shortly be sending out emails, tweets, and tons of Facebook messages and invites for the Holiday Open House, but if you saw it here tonight, you’re probably the first ones to know about it!…Feel special!   Word-Of-Mouth is the best form of advertising.  And as you all know, I did just get started, and for any business, it can become a little tough at first.  That’s why I know this Open House will help.  I do ask that you continue to tell your friends and family about the Black Hills newest salon & spa, and again, thank you to everyone who already has!

   Well, Willie is just about finished with my editing on the mailers and invites, be sure to look for them!
