When I began my beauty journey as a small biz owner in 2018, I had no idea how it would grow and become what it is today! Because of this immense blessing, and the high demand for our wedding services, I have had the honor of bringing in 3 associate artists to service you for all of your makeup AND hair needs on wedding day!
Ashley – Owner, Lead Artist, and Creative Lead of The Glamour Ranch
By now you have probably guessed that I’m Ashley, the owner and lead artist at The Glamour Ranch. I got my start in the beauty industry just about a decade ago, and started my independent business in 2018. In addition to offering memorable makeup and hair artistry experiences, I have also launched my own online boutique, and created our very own mink eye lashes with our own formulation of lipglosses as well! I’m an artist and entrepreneur at heart! My husband and I also raise cattle, and have a strong love of all things ranching and agriculture! Truly, I love being involved in all aspects of the business, but my favorite part of all is creating memorable client experiences, and helping them see their beauty and worth through gentle makeup transformations that showcase their natural beauty!

What Clients are Saying
“I have had the incredible opportunity to work with Ashley on 3 different occasions—for my COVID mini wedding, my big wedding, and a styled shoot. All I can say is that each time I received 10/10 services. Ashley is a rockstar who really went above and beyond to meet my needs and make sure I felt beautiful. She is totally open to any suggestions or preferences. A true master of her work. I would totally recommend Ashley to anyone who has hair and makeup needs for any occasion!”Kelsey K
“If you are considering booking The Glamour Ranch (Ashley) as your makeup artist for any event… this is your sing to DO IT!!Cecelia E
Weddings for example are stressful enough to worry about makeup and lashes, and Ashley took that worry off my shoulders. She was professional and her work was flawless. My lashes and my bridesmaids lashes stayed on the whole day. Her airbrush foundation technique lasted the whole day as well and even when my husband got me with a little bit of frosting during cake cutting I just cleaned my face softly and everything was back to perfect. I definitely recommend them and will be using them again for any professional makeup needs.”
“Ashley at The Glamour Ranch (and, actually, their entire staff) are absolutely incredible to work with. Their attention to detail, knowledge of everything beauty-related, and desire to make you feel beautiful are more than you could ever ask for. They come prepared and leave you needing to worry about NOTHING. Their experience in all things weddings, engagements, family sessions, and more, give you peace of mind knowing you’re in great hands. As a fellow wedding professional AND as someone who has received services personally from The Glamour Ranch, I most highly recommend them to anyone and everyone that I can. Their integrity and creativity are most definitely a step above.”Samantha R
