Fall naturally brings change.  The leaves change from bright greens to hues of red and oranges, the days get shorter and cooler and the air begins to smell like fall. Salon Emage wants to help you take that step into fall with a little something for yourself, a new look. You may have been coming to the salon for years, maybe you are new to the salon or maybe you have used the salon for services other than hair.  Anyway you come to us, and we want to take a few weeks to let you get to know our team members a little better and get some style tips, too. First, we introduced you to Sam. Now here’s our NEW Artistic Director Ashley Gray…

Artistic Director Ashley Gray

Flipping through magazines can always be a great place to look for a trendy hair cut and color. As for taking that leap of faith from a magazine model to your own head of hair, well that can be challenging. However, it is easier when you are working with a hair stylist who’s pictures are in the magazines. Recently promoted to Salon Emage Day Spa’s Artistic Director position, Ashley Gray not only graduated at the top of her class from the Graham Webb Academy, she has done hair for the stars (actrees Rachel Leigh CookMiss USA International Casandra Tressler, and author Susan McCorkindale), is a regional educator for UNITE and has her work splashed across magazines including Nashville Lifestyle Magazine and Council Magazine.

Ashley is the type of person who has always found herself submerged in fashion. That coupled with a niche for creativity and passion for working with people lead Ashley to the perfect career path, hairstyling. What she enjoys most about working with hair is that big reveal moment when clients are able to see their new look for the first time, and they light up with excitement and feel beautiful.

While short hair is Ashley’s favorite type of hair to work with, she enjoys coloring and cutting hair the most. She believes in giving clients a textured and trendy look that is the perfect mix of fun and cutting edge but not too over the top. To keep your hairstyle looking its best her favorite products are, Unite
