Pursuing continual education and growth are part of Ashley's core, and has been since enrolling in cosmetology school at age 16. Now, when not behind the chair in salon, she works as an Educator for Oribe Hair Care, spending part of her time traveling nationally and internationally teaching editorial styling and cutting classes, as well as working backstage at Fashion Week in New York City, Milan, and Paris, assisting stylist such as James Pecis, Kien Hoang, Ramona Esbach, Joey George, and Holli Smith.
“I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with many people who have inspired me and helped me grow. From them, I will remember the following: Always hold true to who you are, take chances even when they scare you and push yourself to explore new adventures because life is filled with constant growth and new beginnings. And if you ask my Nana, she will say to always get dressed, put makeup on and have food in the house because you never know who’s going to come knocking at your door!” - Ashley Brecken http://issuu.com/luxurybrandpartners/docs/lbp_portfolio_03_final_10-2016_for_

"Motivating and inspiring people and watching them want to challenge themselves, step out of their comfort zone and push themselves creatively is one of the reasons I truly love being an Educator and Artistic Director. "
