I specialize in huge transformations.  From big chops to color and extensions.  I do two different types of extensions: tape-ins and hand-tied sewn in.  I have also been an eyelash tech for the last three years. I’m extremely passionate about my career and never feel like I’m “workin”. Just hanging with my friends and doing bomb hair and lashes.

Read More About Me...

My career started in March 2006 at Richards beauty college in downtown Regina.

Originally I was going into nursing but I’m glad my fashion designer cousin forced me to go for hair as a career.  He saw a talent I didn’t know was there.  As the weeks went by the teachers started to notice this talent and I started training for hair shows.  I entered into my first hair competition that fall and took third place at my first provincial show.

My competition career was intense.  I traveled across the country competing against top professionals in our industry. I’ve won 1 national women’s trend, 5 provincial golds, 3 silver, and 3 bronze.  In men’s trend, fantasy, and elegant evening updos.  That being said I was offered two positions on the Canadian team for Worlds.  I had turned those down to expand my family. 

I was an educator at The Style Academy for 4 years and trained many students for hair competitions and runway shows.  

I’ve done a lot of runway work for Sask Fashion Week as the lead stylist 2 different years.  I was to design all the looks for all the designers and had a team of stylists to help achieve these looks on 40-50 models.  As well lead stylist for Dean Renwick’s Design gala and Moustache from 2014-2019

Owning two businesses, while managing the 4 children and the salons I realized that both were too much to handle. Which led me to Boss Boutique.

Since my first job at a salon in 2003 I dreamed of owning my own shop in Regina’s cathedral location. In fact I used to walk past the very location of BOSS today and say to my friends on the way to the free house ( back in the day ) I would buy the beauty salon one day & then years later buy the barber shop and knock down the wall in between and that’s exactly what happened!!!

I graduated from Richards Beauty college in 2003 with diplomas in Cosmotology ( hairstyling) Advanced Esthetics, Nail enhancements, and Makeup Artistry. I’ve been in the industry for twenty years now and have had the opportunity to work at the city’s top salons.

I have educated for SST Cosmetics since 2007 ( yes we sell the whole line at the Boutique)

I specialize in color, hair cutting, extensions & make up.
I’ve attends numerous advanced education courses such as Mekka by Kathy Simon in Toronto, Mac cosmetics in Vancouver.

I absolutely love my career and this industry! Beauty nerd for life !!

Ashley Merkel


I am a journeyman stylist and started my career in 2009, at MC College in Saskatoon. From there every few years I wanted to provide my guests with a little more. So I added makeup artistry and Educator for SST Cosmetics Inc. to my resume. After that, nail technician, pedicurist, wax technician and most recently spray tan technician. I like the variety of services it brings in my day and availability for my guests. I have been at Boss Boutique now for 4 years coming from Saskatoon for the previous 7. My passion for the industry has gotten stronger over the years and continues to grow being surrounded by amazing artists!

During my career in London, I had the pleasure to style high-caliber celebrities such as Kate Moss, Daniel Radcliffe and Florence Welch (Florence and the Machines), among others. I also had the opportunity to work as a stylist at London/Paris Fashion weeks, numerous movie sets and music videos, styled hair for the cover of a top British magazine, stylist for the Burberry Look Book and styled wigs for the Westend Musical London (Miss Saigon).
