About Us

We pride ourselves on Loyalty, Integrity, Optimism and Nurturing our guests. Lion Salon is passionate about providing the very best in hair care, skin and body care, customer service and overall wellness.



With a love of people and an eye for beauty, Ashley quickly became drawn to the industry. She graduated from the Institute of Cosmetic Arts in 2004 and began her understudy with Tillman, an Aveda salon in South Carolina. She has an affection for classic styles and the craft of hairdressing. She spent nearly 10 years working for Marilyn Ihloff at her Norman location where she made investments personally and professionally. It only made sense when it was time for her to create her own brand, Lion, that she graciously purchased Marilyn’s Norman location. She redesigned it to fit her vision and has been happily moving and grooving with her amazing team since October 2018.
