Starting her career in the late 90’s, Ashley had always loved the design aspect of hair and fashion, so this was the perfect fit. After completing the intense Gene Juarez Advanced Training program and working in their Bellevue salon and spa for 5 years as a designer, she decided to transition to an exclusive Wella and Bumble boutique salon.

Ashley then went on to train in New York at Bumble & Bumble University and Wella Studios. She specializes in anything from edgy to soft and femine cuts, effortless styling and also loves what her color application can do to bring out the dimension and texture of a new style.

Jenny attended Gene Juarez Academy in 1996. She then completed a year long apprenticeship at the Gary Manuel Salon in Seattle. Two years later, she had the opportunity to train with Vidal Sassoon's Master Stylist, Ron Matarazzo and Head Colorist, Lorane Matarazzo. Her passion for hair took her to New York to train at Bumble and Bumble University, Wella Studios and with Nick Arrojo, of TLC's What Not To Wear. Jenny loves to create a whole new look for her clients, but she also believes even the smallest change can be amazing! In her off time, Jenny enjoys being with her family and finding inspiration through fashion, food and music.

Madelyn first began her career as a hairstylist in 2015. In that time, she has completed advanced training at Redken’s Exchange in NYC and Redken’s Symposium in Las Vegas. Most of Madelyn’s advanced training has revolved around the topic of balayage, which is what she specializes in! Madelyn is most passionate about the art of balayage because of the creativity it allows. With this technique, she is able to adjust to each individual based on their desired style and function, resulting in a customized look that’s completely unique to you. When Madelyn’s not in the salon, she is constantly redecorating her home, traveling to sunny places, or spending time with friends and family.

our mission

Hi friends, I’m Ashley Newbury! I’m not only the Founder of Flaxen + Ash, but a highly educated stylist with years of technical training under my belt. I began my salon ownership journey back in 2010 opening the well known Winslow Salon in downtown Kirkland WA. 

Shifting gears and my vision this past year, I was craving a more intimate, one on one craft hairdressing experience in a smaller luxury space. It was time to move out a little deeper into more of a “community” atmosphere…. Historical downtown Snohomish was just the answer and bonus it’s also my hometown! I felt like I was home the second I laid eyes on the historic Firehouse Center. No one can miss the beautiful relic that stands tall at the peak of Avenue A.
