Ashley Hatch, Grande Prairie Mall

What is your role, where do you work, and how long have you been there?

Retail Manager at the Grande Prairie Mall location (fun fact, today was my first day at this location). I worked at Westgate for three + years and then Chatters moved me to the Grande Prairie mall location.

What would you consider to be your favourite product?

I love shampoos and conditioners; they are my thing. My absolute favourite is the Redken Extreme Shampoo paired with the All Soft Conditioner by Redken.

Favorite hair trend?

Balayage. I get to see people leaving the salon all the time, and this hairstyle can be so different, but it’s also classy and beautiful.

What does style happy mean to you?

Always having great hair and a great hair day even if you’re having a bad hair day!

What are some small things that make your day better?

Happy customers, it’s so much better than having a crabby customer.

What stylist has impressed you most with what they’ve accomplished?

There was one girl at Westgate who started off, and she was a little shaky in the beginning, but I was able to watch her bloom into this phenomenal stylist, and it was so great to watch.

What is something that is considered a luxury, but you don’t think you could live without?

Leave in conditioner for sure! Oh, and my XBox One! Not sure if that counts as a luxury but gaming and Netflix is my life!

What’s your claim to fame?

Always being super positive and changing people’s moods when they seem down.

Do you have a personal philosophy?

Don’t give up no matter how many times you fall, just keep going.

What is your ideal weekend?

Being with my horses and playing video games. Assassin’s Creed is my favourite, but I also love Red Dead Redemption.
