About Ashley

Ashley is a lifestyle and travel writer who’s work has been featured in publications including: NBCWashington.com, River City Magazine, Greenbelt Patch and more. She currently lives in Richmond, VA with her fiancé, John and her dog, Asha.

In September of 2014, Ashley Jefferson gained international notoriety when she received a double page feature in the Malaysian issue of Marie Claire magazine for her popular article “How To Get Into New York Fashion Week.” The article, scripted two years prior, marked the beginning of her international success as Ashley began receiving invitations to script more articles for several websites and magazines in the UK, Asia and Africa.

In June of 2015, Ashley took her expertise off line and opened Joy & Body Hair, a luxury hair extensions company. Sourcing hair from the southern region of India, each and every bundle of hair provided is hand picked and wefted by the company’s very own collectors and weft specialists.

Each bundle of hair is the ponytail of just one donor, washed, conditioned and custom wefted for each client who orders.
