Who We Are

Background

Luminary hairstylist and Ohio native, Paris Ashford, has been a dominant force in the entertainment industry for over a decade, but chose to focus on his true passion, hair design,  in 2012. As an expert in various hair techniques, Paris effortlessly captures the desired style and innate personalities of every client. Paris’ approach to hair design distinguishes him from his peers through his desire to make every style look as natural as possible and ensure that every hair strand is at its healthiest state. He takes great pride in creating eccentric styles that push societal barriers but  always makes each client’s hair care management his main priority. Whether he’s customizing wigs, color, cuts, or styling natural hair, Paris ensures that each final look is a positive reflection of both the client and the pride he takes in his work. Paris believes in remaining a student of his craft, so to expand on his knowledge and clientele base, he became an Aveda trained licensed cosmetologist in 2014.

Highlights

Since then, Paris’ work has been published in Salysé Magazine, Mantra Yoga & Health Magazine; and he’s served as a brand ambassador for VIPSL hair lounge, Bronner Bros., and Outré Hair. He’s traveled to Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, and the island of Jamaica for promotional shoots, weddings, hair parties, and personal styling appointments. His client list has included Mamé Adjei, Miss Maryland USA 2015 and runner up of cycle 22 of America’s Next Top Model; and former Young & the Restless actress, Victoria Rowell. His obsession with proper hair care management and styling remains evident as he continues expanding his brand and awareness of the best hair techniques for all textures and/or types. Paris currently resides in Washington, D.C. where he is working on his DevaCurl stylist license and the creation of a hydration system specially designed for women with low porosity strands and dense cuticles.

Fun Facts

Washing hair removes excess sweat and oil, as well as unwanted products from the hair and scalp. Often hair is washed as part of a shower or bathing with shampoo, a specialized surfactant. Shampoos work by applying water and shampoo to the hair.
