At SHL we are a hybrid salon with all different expertise and specialties. We are a family orientated environment with a mixture of salon specialist and independent talent. 
 Our Founder Ashley Braid created a space where stylists could shine with their experience, education and practice to master their craft.


Ashley Braid

“Do what you love ... love what you do.”

This still resonates with Ashley after 18 years behind the chair. She wakes up every day feeling blessed to create and make her beautiful guests feel like they are shining.

Ashley specializes in advanced coloring techniques from stubborn unruly silver coverage to blondebalayages and brunette blends. Creating fullness and length with extensions, giving her guest hair they never imagined.

From being blow dried to sleep as a baby to playing hairdresser as a child, Ashley started to develop her artistry by practicing informally through her adolescent years on the heads of friends and family. It was destined to be.

She followed her heart to John Casablanca's in 2006 and continued on to advanced education at Vancouver's Aveda Academy Institute. At Aveda, she found her passion for sustainable beauty and the science of color. From there, she began to chase her dream of opening her own salon. Her dream finally came true and Shine Hair Lounge began the journey in 2012.

Ashley truly believes in following your heart, doing what makes your soul shine.

"I love what I do, creating comfort within my clients, educating them and making sure all my guest’s expectations are met. Hair is my passion, creating and enhancing the beauty we hold every day. Hair is our best accessory. Have fun with it! Color it, cut it, extend it, smooth it...CHANGE IT."

As a hair artist & salon owner, Ashley constantly looks for ways to ignite her creativity through experience and industry training. From local workshops to international experience such as traveling to LA for Vidal Sassoon, Ashley always feeds her passion with practice and education. She is committed to growing a exceptional team who share the same visions & values as a salon family.
