Meet Ashley Vick. She knew she was going to be a hairstylist.

“I’ve done it since I was a little girl. I’ve always known I was going to do it,” she said. Vick went to beauty school in Savannah right after high school, then was classically trained at Vidal Sassoon in London. Not long after that, she opened her salon in Savannah. With more than a decade in the business, Shear Elegance has been employee-based versus a rental chair salon, meaning all the stylists at Shear Elegance are regular employees rather than contractors. The industry has trended more toward the gig economy in recent years, but Shear Elegance always has and always will be employee-based for one simple reason – consistency. “It helps with client retention, and we have zero turnover,” Vick explained. “All of the stylists that we’ve added over the years have stayed, and some of my clients have been with me for 18 years before I ever owned a salon.”  shearelegancesandfly.com / 912.356.0033
