For the past five years I’ve been working with beautiful Toronto brides. It means a lot to me to be a part of such happy moments. The brides I work with range from makeup lovers to never-do-my-hair’ers. And for each and every one of them, my focus is always the same; highlight their natural grace, personal style while interpreting the feel of the wedding day. Think you, on your best day. Elegant with a touch of effortless. On the big day, I will be there at whatever time you need and stay as late you want making sure that you and your bridal party are primped to perfection. I offer both traditional and airbrush applications and provide everyone receiving services a complimentary touch up kit. And, because they are my personal secret weapon, everyone receiving makeup is offered complimentary false lashes. I’m also available before the wedding for in-depth trials or all the events that come before the wedding including bachelorettes, bridal showers and rehearsal dinners. Read less

Ashley is wonderful!!! She made me feel more beautiful on my wedding day then I have ever felt. I did a trial with Ashley and she asked me to send her some pictures at the end of the day so she could see how my hair held the curl. In the pictures, I guess my hair was a little frizzy (it almost always is). Ashley remembered this on my wedding day and made sure to put some magic lotion in my hair. No frizzes on my wedding day! Ashley and her awesome assistants did all of the hair and makeup for my mum and 5 bridesmaids. Everyone was delighted with how they look and Ashley’s assistants were lovely to work with. I strongly recommend working with Ashley!!!

We were 2 brides and Ashley had to deal with us for 2 days! She was punctual for both days, humorous and calm (although we weren't always) and did a beautiful job on hair and make-up for both of us. My fiance has rosacea and usually cannot wear make-up however Ashley accommodated this with an excellent foundation that concealed the red while keep her look very natural. Getting done up was one of the more enjoyable and relaxing moments of this hectic weekend and it was due to Ashley's warm demeanor and outstanding skills. Her costs are competitive and well worth it. Thanks again!

Working with Ashley was amazing. She was so flexible and took everything I asked for into account. I was so indecisive about how to wear my hair, that she went above and beyond and styled it a way that I could wear it up for the ceremony and down for the reception. I couldn't believe how good it looked when I took it down halfway through the day! It was actually insane. I woke up feeling stressed and as soon as she showed up, she made me feel completely relaxed. Even my mom, who never ever wears makeup, absolutely loved working with Ashley and loved the result. She is so talented and professional, but honestly felt like a good friend showing up to do my makeup. I will definitely be working with her again!

I highly recommend using Ashley and her team for your big day. I was first interested in Ashley because of her reputation of making brides look naturally beautiful. When we did our trial, she was very friendly, and everyone was VERY VERY happy with my results. Everyone thought I looked amazing and the photos were beautiful. However, I still felt it was too much makeup for me. Also the primer Ashley used didn't work on my oily lids. When Ashley heard this, she dropped off primer samples to my house for me to try, and we found one that worked! She also worked with me via email in the months prior to the wedding, and found a tinted moisturizer that was absolutely perfect for my skin. She even took a look at my engagement pics to see how I photographed. The day of the wedding, she was prompt, and indeed, we were ahead of schedule. My mom needed so little makeup Ashley didn't charge us for her service (my mom looked GREAT!). And each girl got a little touchup bag for the day which was uber helpful. I am VERY judgmental about makeup especially special event makeup, and pay close attention to photos to see if foundation matches etc. I found her work to be flawless. ALSO, my girls hair and makeup looked amazing! WHOOT!

Ashley is incredible! I was wearing two dresses for my wedding - an indian lengha and a white wedding dress. I wanted to switch dresses half way through my reception so having one beautiful hairstyle that could work with both looks was key. i knew it wasnt going to be easy to find a hairstylist who could help me bring my vision to life - until I met Ashley. We hit it off right away. She's so down to earth, super creative, professional, amazing at what she does and just so poised. People loved my hair - we went old school glam, the switch between dresses went smoothly and Ashley helped me feel beautiful on my big day! She is a superstar!

Ashley was a joy to work with through every step of the planning process! She was confident, comfortable and funny! Ashley was unhappy with how my first trial went for my hair as it wasn't exactly how I envisioned it, so she took the time to come back to make it perfect. The day of the wedding she arrived early (which put me at ease) with another professional hair stylist and they did an amazing job on every member of my bridal party. My hair and makeup was the perfect combination of beautifully done without being overdone. Ashley helped to enhance our best features and make us all look and feel our best for such an important day. We also got the added bonus of touch up kits (provided free of charge to everyone in the bridal party) and she did both our flower girls hair for free as well! The cost was comparable to many of the other hair/makeup artists in Toronto but Ashley went above and beyond and gave us so much value for our money! I'd highly recommend her to anyone!

Ashley was wonderful to work with and made our wedding day absolutely stress free and easy. She coordinated bringing another makeup artist with her who was great as well. There were a number of ladies to get ready (7) and they worked with ease and care on each person. Coming to the hotel made our lives much easier and they were very flexible with the travel and set up (lack of space available) and worked until each girl was happy with the styling. Anyone able to book Ashley is very lucky and should do so asap to avoid disappointment!! I would highly recommend her :)
