About Ashley Blackstone

I fell in love with the concept as soon as I heard of it. I believe “it’s genius” were my exact words. I wanted to open a new business, but most of all I wanted to be passionate about it. I have been lucky enough to know some of the best talent Columbus has to offer in the hair business being both stylists and salon owners. It is exciting and an honor to be part of such an artistic and evolving industry. It was almost four years ago when the wheels started turning. But it was 2013 when my amazing business partner, Jessica Daniels, and myself put it all together. One business plan, four investors, and an incredible amount of work later and here we are. The Blowdry Cafe is born. I love this concept, our brand and the salon so much, I want nothing more than our clients to love it too. If your hair is happy then so are we! Yours truly, Ashley Blackstone, co-owner
