I bring over 21 years to experience to the Ascension team. My passion is color. I specialize in blondes, keeping up with all of the new and latest techniques!I am a military spouse, and have been fortunate to have worked and furthered my education all over the country. Because I'm a military spouse, I understand how difficult it can be to move often and how hard it is to constantly need to find another hair stylist! I love making people look and feel their very best--whether they see me for 6 months, 3 years, or a lifetime!

She is an Eufora Elite Team member and is certified in many areas in this industry. She is also a Kemon color specialist, enjoys doing Cezanne Smoothing treatments and is certified in DreamCatchers Hair extensions. Chrissy enjoys working with her guests to ensure full communication on what the desired result will be. Chrissy loves to make people look and feel their best!
Nothing gives me greater joy than when a client is excited about her hair and says she has found someone who truly listens to what she wants! I LOVE styling a client's hair in a way that complements her face and makes her feel beautiful. While I have been working as a stylist for more than 35 years, I have never lost my love for what I do. I enjoy continuing to learn and am always developing new skills. I regularly train, not only in our salon but also at other venues; I have recently trained in New York, Virginia, and Ocean City, to name a few. Learning new color techniques, cuts, highlights, and other up to date trends keep me fresh and current. I look forward to helping you create a new style that is all your own!
Hello, my name is Donna and I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. The most important thing to know about me is my relationship with my clients. Yes, I have 30 years experience in hairstyling; yes, I continue to receive extensive training in all aspects of hair design; and yes, I am an Elite team member for Eufora and have a love for the plant based, healthy for hair, body & environment products. However, the most important and enjoyable part of my job is my client base. I love what I do because my clients reward me everyday with their enthusiasm for trying something new and different and their appreciation and joy when they take that final look in the mirror. Having clients return month after month for many years gives me satisfaction in knowing that I have not only the expertise for hair styling, but also THE creativity and vision for each INDIVIDUAL'S life style.
I relocated from Ireland in 1994 with my husband and children. In 2004 I began working at Ascension salon, learning expert cutting techniques under Master Stylist and Barber Vincent Wright. Since the, I have achieved certifications for color from Redken and Kemon. I enjoy all aspects of hair artistry, including smoothing treatments, and particularly creative up-styles and working with fine hair. Listening to a client's needs is key to giving the best look for each individual, and there's nothing quite like seeing a smile on a client's face when they look and feel their best.
I have worked at Ascension Salon since 2005, first as a Shampoo Technician and then as an Apprentice under learning cutting techniques from Vidal Sassoon Educator and Ascension Salon's owner Vincent Wright. I learned my color techniques under Former Kemon Educator and fellow stylist Megan Clark. I am constantly training and learning all the latest hair trends. I am certified in Cezanne Smoothing Treatments. Being originally from Mexico, I am also bilingual. I take pride in my work and I enjoy giving each client the look that's perfect for them!
Envisioning your new look is one of professional Master stylist Michelle Nelson's specialties. Listening, truly listening, to a client's desire, and then taking that vision and making it work with the nature of the hair to bring that 'ahh, yes!" moment at the mirror. Boom! That's what Michelle is all about. Michelle graduated from Annapolis Beauty Academy in 1989. After working in many of Annapolis' name salons for 27 years, Michelle joined the team at Ascension to continue to cultivate her talent. Her mastery of highlighting techniques andpenchant for working with short hair has led to a devoted clientele following. While walk-ins are always welcome, guarantee your slot in Michelle's schedule by calling and making an appointment.Where seasoned experience meets creative flair.that's where you'll find Michelle. On a more literal plane, Michelle lives in Edgewater with her husband and two teenage children.
Making clients feel beautiful from the inside out is Tiffany's everyday goal. Tiffany Clarke has been in the industry for over five years. She studied at the Aveda Institute in St. Petersburg Florida, where she had top-notch training.

She loves educating her client's on how to achieve a perfect at home look with the right products and tools. Tiffany is known for women's cuts-short or long, it's amazing what a great haircut can do! She keeps up with the trends and takes continuing education classes regularly. If you are looking for a stylist who listens to you and gets you to the hair you want, she is your girl!
Being a hairdresser for over 30 years has been my passion and privilege. There is nothing more gratifying, as a hair designer, and having my guess look in the mirror, smile and know that I play a part of them feeling good about themselves. I believe you never stop learning or creating something new. Every guest is a new opportunity to be creative and get to know them on a more personal level.I continue to go to classes. Always looking for something new to apply behind the chair. Whether it be classic lines or edgy spikes. Color techniques, men's hair designs, formal styling for those special occasions, or fun braids for your little girl, it is always tailored for you!
