[Local Buzz] Dimensions Hair Salon – Outer Banks Style Professionals
A family-run local business, Dimensions Hair Salon has been providing full service hair care to locals and visiting walk-ins on the Outer Banks for over a decade.
Dimensions is a full service hair salon specializing in all techniques of color, trendy cuts, and bridal styles, while maintaining a friendly atmosphere and outstanding customer service.
Ashley Dashiell is among the talented team of licensed stylists at Dimensions Hair Salon, located in the heart of Kill Devil Hills.
Ashley grew up on the Outer Banks and always knew she had a passion for hair.
“My career at Dimensions started long before I went to Cosmetology school,” Dashiell explains. “I was a part of Dimensions from Day One. I spent my time cleaning, folding towels, answering the phone, and helping schedule appointments. I wanted to learn as much as I could from watching the other stylists, working on a mannequin or friends in my spare time, curling, braiding, and styling.
“After graduating I spent a few years at ECU in the business school and finally chased my ultimate dream in the beginning of 2009 by moving to Florida to enroll in Paul Mitchell: The School in Orlando. That is where my passion turned to reality.”
Ashley soon achieved highest honors in multiple clubs while attending the Paul Mitchell school. She worked hard and was one of only 12 students from the school to be accepted into their Phase 2 program to finish out her last 600 hours of the required 1,200 hours of the course.
Since finishing the Paul Mitchell course, Ashley has worked several big events, including the House of Blues and Winter X Games Mountain Dew Tour, and she traveled to Las Vegas to attend classes and seminars with the top educators and founders of the Paul Mitchell Family.
Since returning home to the Outer Banks, she has been working at Dimensions, specializing in dimensional color, Ombré, cutting and styling, foil highlights, and men’s cuts, and she is the lead stylist for Dimensions Weddings.
“I love trying new techniques,” Ashley told us, “but I always keep in mind that we are at the beach. So I try to customize each cut and color to work with my clients’ daily style and keep things as low maintenance as possible for the seasonal changes, without sacrificing the trendy or traditional style my clients love.”
