Lion is passionate about providing the very best in hair care, skin and body care and customer service. We are protective of our family culture and seek to maintain a healthy work/life balance in overall wellness.

Our second location was introduced in 2020. Located less than five minutes from the heart of downtown Oklahoma City, Lion can be found in the upscale shopping center, Classen Curve. OKC residents can spend an afternoon with our stylists and estheticians getting glam before heading out to all their favorite stores for a shopping spree or stop by for a blowout before a date night at one of Classen Curve’s many fine dining establishments. Whatever your needs—our team at Lion has you covered.



With a love of people and an eye for beauty, Ashley was immediately drawn to the beauty 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 Brookhaven Village location where she made investments personally and professionally. When it was time for Ashley to create her own brand, Lion, she purchased Marilyn’s Brookhaven Village location and redesigned it to fit her vision. Ashley has been happily moving and grooving with her amazing team since October 2018.2020 saw the expansion to a second location in the Classen Curve shopping center in Oklahoma City and the achievement of yet another dream for Ashley. She is excited to watch her team grow into their new location and continue to offer the same standard of Loyalty, Integrity, Optimism and Nurturing that her guests have come to expect from the Lion name.
