Blades Employee of the Month: July 2015

ashley-carricoJoin us in welcoming one of the newest members of the Blades Salon family, Ashley Carrico! Ashley has really impressed us since she joined the team earlier this year, and we couldn’t think of a better match for our July Employee of the Month award. Learn more about Ashley now!
Q. How did you decide to become a stylist?
A. I decided to become a stylist because I didn’t want to be sitting behind a desk all day. That’s not me–I’m one of those people who is constantly moving! Above all though, I wanted to be able to change the way my clients look and feel about themselves. I wanted to be able to help make a change that would boost self confidence.
Q. What’s your favorite trend for summer?
A. My favorite summer trends would have to be the more natural looks. The tussled braid and flowing beach waves are such an easy, summery look.
Q. What’s the biggest risk you’ve ever taken with your personal style?
A. That would have to be the time I went red. I’ve been a blonde most of my life, and one day I decided to be spontaneous. Let’s just say it didn’t work out for me.
Q. If you could style anyone, living or dead, who would you choose?
A. I think I would have to choose Jennifer Aniston, because she’s such a natural beauty. That’s the feeling I go for with my clients–enhancing their natural beauty with a little tweaking. I also think Jennifer would be down to earth and easy going about the things I would want her to try. Plus, her hair is just gorgeous!
Q. What’s the best thing about Louisville in the summer?
A. I think these summer months really make the city come alive! There’s always an event going on or a concert to go to.
Q. Finish this sentence: “When I’m not at Blades, you’ll find me…”
A. Sitting by the pool with my close friends and a good book in hand!
We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Ashley as much as we have over the past few months, and will join us in congratulating her on this much-deserved honor!
