Ashley Lee

Ashley Lee hails from Basingstoke, but for the last 8 years has been based in London. The move was inspired “to get the best training and London is the best city for fashion and creating.” That decision paid off, and he has become a brand ambassador for Akito Scissors as well collaborated with some notable designers and of course being able to be a hairdresser, doing what he loves best. Ashley has been passionate about hair from as young as he can remember, in fact he was completely obsessed with it. He would watch his mum put rollers in her hair and was just amazed that these round heated rollers would make her hair big, bouncy and glamorous – he was totally mesmerised by the transformation. “One of my earliest memories is being at primary school aged six, french plaiting all the girls locks in the playground. I just loved making all my friends feel pretty. but it was probably when my nan bought me a Vidal Sasson hairdressing book from a car boot sale that got me really excited about hair, I studied the step by step of cutting and styling, and my friends, ‘very kind friends’ would come round and i’d experiment on their hair giving them all sorts hair styles, cuts and colours. I think thats when I realised, this could be my job!” Ashley’s dedication, openness and fashion sense is what sets him apart. His advice to hairdressers starting out: “Never ever stop learning, inventing and creating”.
