Ashley Myers

Master Stylist/ Salon Owner



"I moved to Kansas City at 19 years old on my own. I had a car (with a payment), full of clothes and a few pillows. Probably $792 in my bank account (if I had to guess). I did it with out a care in the world. I made it work. It was rough, I didn't have financial help or any backing but I kept my smile on and WORKED! I loved that first one bedroom apartment. It was mine, 100% mine. To this day I LIVE in the moment! With hairdressing, I know I am meant to be a mentor and a student everyday>>>AND I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!


After relocating I immediately started working at a chain salon in 2004. This is when and where I met and fell in love with my soul mate Nathan, also a hairstylist. After that first year working together, we connected a little more every day. We had so little but so much in common. We talked on the phone for months and today I can't even remember what it was we talked about. We were becoming close friends plain and simple. >>> Shortly after our first REAL date in early November, 2005 it was more than apparent we were meant to be together (I mean he picked me up with flowers and a bottle of wine "I was 20 LOL", opened my car door and still does every just worked, we worked and we work well).

We were so young, inexperienced and naive when we started at Birdcage Salon in August 2008. It takes incredibly long days and not enough hours to get where we are. It hasn't always been an easy road being entrepreneurs. With the high risks we've taken and staying indestructible as a couple... we have developed a beautiful salon and a very strong team. We just continue to work hard to play hard... traveling is what me and my boo love to do!"

"Education is the most important tool for our team success...

with advanced education ignites their passion...

with their passion as a TEAM we can achieve more than ONE could imagine!"
