Rising Stars: Meet Ashley Boren

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Boren.

Hi Ashley, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My story began as I was searching for a bridal makeup artist for my wedding back in 2016. I found an artist who provided a bridal makeup course, so I took that class, completed it in three months and began working on her bridal team.

I eventually branched off on my own & the rest is history!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It’s definitely not been a smooth ride, I’ve had a lot of trial and error to get to where I’m at.

Finding the right people who want the same things as me in a business, who value my talent, friendships & creativity have definitely been a big hurdle. I finally feel like I’ve found my people.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a bridal hair and makeup artist. I specialize in Brides in particular for that soft, natural look that we all want on the biggest day of our lives!

I believe I’m known for our natural bridal looks, but we can also change it up for a dramatic look when we need to.

I’m most proud of the relationships I’ve built with other vendors & the amount of referrals we get. Word of mouth is truly the most flattering compliment to receive!

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I think open communication & honesty is the best way to find your type of client.

So many people will try to talk you into buying what they sell, but if I honestly think there’s someone out there who can give you a look much better than me, I’m sending you their contact info.

It’s not always about making a “sale”. It’s about making you feel your absolute best on your wedding day, whether it’s me or someone else doing your h+mu.
