Okay sassy 🙋🏽‍♀️balayage lady. I framed the face with hand painted, free form natural highlights. Caitlin is ready for matcha green tea lattes with the girls this morning, and her San Diego vacation for Memorial Day.

My grandma Charlotte came in for a cut and facial waxing today. I did that AND some fresh lowlights to accent her luscious white locks. I did a 8N with 20 Volume and pulled it though the cap. For the cut I used the clippers with a 4 guard and a 90 degree cut. Finishing the perimeter with the Peanut clippers. To style Char I put some mousse in her hair and worked out her natural wave. G-ma left with some major pep in her step. And I’m totally obsessed with this transformation.

Today I worked on my timing for wrapping perms. It’s so much fun. Does anyone else love perms like I do?!?!

This week I’ve been working on using the clippers. I really love this look. I used a 4 guard, and cleaned the perimeter with a 2 guard, blending with a 3. To take out bulk on top, and to blend the back I used the texturizing sheers. Swipe right for the shaggy before.

Week two of haircutting theory. I flipping love it.

Today I did a color transformation that I’ve been dreaming up for weeks. I took Sally from a level 6N to a 9.33gc. A warm copper worth writing poetry for. Swipe right for the before color.

Soft tendrils.

Did you know that I came this 👉🏼👈🏽 close to signing up for the Aesthetics program? I am beyond enthusiastic regarding skin care. I’m so glad I went through the entire cosmetology program though, because I adore hair as much as skin care. I loved learning about facials and want to practice as much as possible. Want a facial?!? Let’s talk!

For those of you that don’t know me yet, let me pop into my own feed and introduce myself. My name is Ashley Yazzie-Ward, and I’m a cosmetology student studying at East Valley Institute of Technology. I’m pivoting into my second career after acting for the past 15 years.

I love a good Greek salad with extra Kalamata olives and feta cheese with a large iced green tea and a whisper of lemonade. I call it an Ashley Palmer.

I live for both sending and receiving snail 🐌 mail. Extra points for cute stationary and stickers.

I’m a total book worm and used to get in trouble at school and at home for reading too much. •
My favorite show is @schittscreek. My favorite album on repeat right now is @bornsmusic Blue Madonna.

I wear men’s cologne because I love more masculine notes of tobacco, pepper, cedar, and cardamom. Men love cologne on a woman because her pheromones make the scent feminine and work with her chemistry. Women love it on women because it’s a masculine scent. I give you full permission to try cologne for yourself!

Final fun fact; I’ve freelanced as a food critic in the past. I’m passionate about life changing food and cobbling together flowery words.

I love school and I can’t wait to be licensed to work on your hair! Thanks for following me and giving me such awesome industry advice. Xo, A
