Owner/ Hair Artist
Welcome! I am the owner of Ashley Blair Hair, located inside The Suite Loft in historic downtown Hudson, WI. I have been my own boss for 5 years, but have been a hairstylist for 11 years total.
I like to think my passion for the hair/beauty industry began at the age of 3 when I performed my first haircut on myself. Rest assured, my skills have significantly improved since then. In 2012, I graduated from The Minnesota School of Cosmetology in Woodbury, MN with a license in Cosmetology. After finishing school and working at a salon in Minnesota for a year and a half, I decided to cross the river to Wisconsin and continued my career there for approximately 5 years, where I also became a licensed cosmetologist in Wisconsin. In 2015, I trained at the Bumble & Bumble University in New York City and received a certificate in advanced styling and cutting methods along with learning a wide-range of product knowledge. I am certified in Easihair Pro Tape-in Hair Extensions, Aqua Tape-in Hair Extensions and Aqua Hand Tied Hair Extensions. I have also participated in extensive training with Wella, Aveda, Affinage, Goldwell, Tigi, Pulp Riot, and Oligo Pro to expand my color theory. I have worked with a large variety of product lines and feel confident in choosing the best products for each individual's needs. I currently offer Amika Hair Products which are vegetarian-friendly, cruelty-free
and free from sulfates, MIT, MCI, phthalates
and artificial colors. While providing high quality performance to all of their products.
I'm always seeking to learn something new in this industry. It is always evolving, and it is very important to me to evolve with it to ensure I am providing the best service possible and keep my clients up to date with the current trends. I love to connect with my clients by listening to their concerns and requests to give them the look they desire, all while creating a fun, energetic and comforting atmosphere where they can feel right at home.
I look forward to seeing you!
You'll hear me talk about my husband a TON, so it's nice to have a face to the name. He's my rock- my ultimate best friend, biggest fan, and one of the main reasons Ashley Blair Hair exists. We have been married for 4 years and recently were blessed with the arrival of our sweet baby boy, Beau Thomas Benitez.
Our miracle baby. Beau arrived 9 weeks early and spent 6 weeks in the NICU. He is the strongest, sweetest boy I know. I absolutely love being his mama. He is truly is a gift from God. When I'm not behind the chair, chances are I'm either snuggling with my boys or spending time with family and friends.
