Ashley Sanderson Hair Recreator
What beauty inspirations have you found the most influential?
Most of my inspirations over the years have come from the many talented stylists I have worked with, each of them have left an imprint of their style on me and I cherish that so much!
With instagram and Facebook now I can be inspired more than once a day, and think it's wonderful for the hair world to be able to share our creations!
Lately tho Larissa Love has inspired me to do what I love!
Tell us about your beauty education and how it made you so fabulous.
I started hair school at the age of 17, it was offered in my highschool in Armstrong, by then I was doing everyone's hair and makeup anyways so it just made sense to me that I took it! I loved it so much I did my grade 12 by correspondence and starting working right away!
I have been lucky in my career that I have been working in salons where education was very important, allowing me to upgrade my skills and empower me with more knowledge ❤
What’s your specialty?
My specialty is knowing face shapes, it's what fascinated me the most in my career that by a hair cut or a colour we can drastically change someone's look that will suit them the most!
I also live to create beautiful colours that move when they stand still. I also started doing extensions at the beginning of my career and it's amazing what it can do.
Who is your hero & why?
My Step Dad, he raised me as his own and was a single father to me and my 3 siblings from a very young age, he's always there for me no matter what time, tells me he loves me almost everyday, makes me feel confident and proud of who I am, and best of all grows all his own food & cans it all for the winter it's unbelievable!! ❤
Fav Davines Product:
This will be my first time ever using Davines!! I'm so excited! I went and got my products and played around a bit and I LOVE the shimmer mist, love a clean shine on hair 😊
Other then beautifying, what are your passions in life?
Spending quality time with my family and friends.
I also love to dance! I take jazz and ballet twice a week at Robb Card.
Being outside in nature is a must for me, and I'm trying to grow my own little garden on my patio, we shall see how it goes lol
You are stranded on an island, what are three things you cannot live with
My boyfriend Steve, he's my rock and keeps me calm and centred, I know I'd survive with just him alone buuuuut I would also need dry shampoo and tweezers cuz y'all know tweezers and dry shampoo are magic 😂
Would you rather ride a unicorn or swim like a mermaid?
Can I do both? Naturally as a Pisces I'm like a fishy and loooooove the water, but how amazing would that be to jump on a unicorn and fly??
Quote To Live By: You are what you do, not what you say you'll do.
Favorite Scent: I love musky vanilla smells or men's cologne
Favourite Color: Is black a colour? I love any deep tones!
Most Memorable Travel Experience?
Thailand, it changed my world and made me who I am today. The culture and people made me restructure my life and be happy with what I have, everyone should go there, you wouldn't sweat the small stuff after you see how they live their life everyday ❤
