Hairstylist and shop owner Ashley Kerkes has been in the industry for 8 years with experience in top salons throughout southeast Michigan.
As a National educator, she loves getting to travel the country; not only teaching classes but taking them as well. She keeps herself educated on the latest trends and techniques in the industry. She loves engaging in her social media and helping to build brands. She also has a tendency to hoard vintage salon paraphernalia.
When she isn’t educating, she is running Ink & Dye Tattoo Parlor and Hair Salon in Milan, MI with her husband Thad and taking care of their 4 kids, Thaddeus, Gavin, Evelyn, and Piper. Ashley loves starting projects and jumping right in. When she got the opportunity to join the Michigan Association of Beauty Professionals and help with their social media she knew this was her new project, helping to bring together people from all over the industry in our state.
Behind the chair 4 days a week, she is a working stylist and can answer questions at a peer to peer level. Ashley, with her easy-going personality, salon expertise, and social media presence is a perfect addition to the MABP.
