Owner, Salon Ashte’
Carol has over 16 years experience as a stylist. Her mother, a stylist, inspired her to go to cosmetology school. Carol styled hair for family and friends while she was in college (pre-med major). She had some medical challenges and had to take a break; her mom suggested cosmetology school during this time, so she went. Initially, Carol went to cosmetology school as “plan B”. The skills were there and while in school, her clientele built quickly. She graduated from Ogles School of Cosmetology and hit the ground running. Carol had a change of plans, and “plan B” became her passion. Always self-driven, Carol seized the opportunity to have her own business and started renting a booth. She loves taking charge of her business and giving her clients the highest quality service, using only professional products. Carol believes in quality customer service and gets her clients in and out.
Carol has been an educator for several companies over the years. She feels it is extremely important to share her gift with other stylists, especially the importance of using professional products and conducting business in a professional and timely manner.
Carol has trained with great manufacturers over the years such as Dudley Products, Nairobi, Design Essentials, and Now Influence Hair Care.
Home maintenance is not an option; it is required for all of Carol’s clients to maintain their hair between salon visits. It is simply part of her system. She wants her clients to look like they just left the salon on every day of the week.
Carol is also a trained makeup artist. She offers makeup applications as well as makeup lessons. She believes in putting your best face forward! Carol is always attending seminars and trade shows to stay current and abreast on all of the trends in regards to all facets of the cosmetology industry.
