Ashley Lee

Ashley Lee hails from Basingstoke, but for the last 8 years has been based in London. The move was inspired by the urge to get the best training in “the best city for fashion and creating.” This decision definitely paid off, as Ashley has become a brand ambassador for Akito Scissors and collaborated with some notable designers whilst being able to pursue what he loves most, hairdressing. 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 amazed how these round heated rollers would make her hair big, bouncy and glamorous, mesmerised by the transformation. “One of my earliest memories is being in 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 Sassoon 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 of hairstyles, cuts and colours. I think that’s when I realised, this could be my job!” Ashley’s dedication, openness and great fashion sense is what sets him apart. His advice to aspiring hairdressers: “Never ever stop learning, inventing and creating”.
