Chit Chat Sesh: Meet Ashtin Yearick, Portfolio’s Newest Team Member!
One of the greatest pleasures about welcoming new team members to Portfolio is that I get to meet - and get to know - someone new! It’s why I am very excited to share my latest interview with Portfolio’s newest team member, Ashtin Yearick. Ashtin provides front-end services and is studying as a stylist apprentice under Amanda Flick. She’ll be on the floor and behind a chair in no time!
Check out our interview conversation below...and stay tuned on our social channels for a follow-up podcast that captures our more in-depth conversation.
Hi Ashtin and welcome to the Portfolio family! So, why Portfolio? What attracted you to our salon?
I chose Portfolio because I was really interested in the Aveda products and how this sets apart the salon from any other salon in the area.
Do you have experience with Aveda? If not, what do you like the most about what you’re learning about this remarkable and innovative brand?
I don’t have any experience with Aveda, but so far I’ve found that I really enjoy the ability to customize a client’s color to make it uniquely their own, and all the education available on Aveda’s PurePro website.
What’s next for you - something you’d like to accomplish within the next year?
Within the next year I’d love to build a decent clientele and get my name out there, and far out into the future I’d love to get my teaching license.
What Aveda products are you enjoying the most and why?
I’ve really enjoyed the Blonde Revival Shampoo and Conditioner because they’ve help me keep my blonde so bright, and the Thickening Tonic has helped me feel more confident about the fullness of my hair.
What do you like to do when you’re not at Portfolio?
When I’m not at Portfolio, I am usually hiking, camping my dog Tank, or fishing all over the county with my S/O.
That's it for now - again, be on the lookout in the coming weeks for our longer conversation, as well as Ashtin's bio video!
