Luxe Hair Salon Stylists


Hi! My name is Christine Simons. I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I graduated High School, received my cosmetology license in 2005, and moved to the Austin area in 2008. Over the years that I have been in the industry, I have grown a passion for special occasions styling, which encouraged me to get my Ulyana Aster for Master Updo Stylist Certification. I love working and growing in this environment. After working for Luxe A Boutique Salon since 2010, I am blessed and honored to be Co-Owner.

Growing up I have always wanted to be a hairstylist and I never wavered on it. When I set my mind to something I do my best to make it happen. I moved to Austin from Utah 13 years ago and right after graduating High School I wasted no time and applied to Avenue Five Institute, where I got my cosmetology license in 2016. I am honored to have been able to assist some amazing stylists over the years and have learned so much. I have pursued my dreams over the last eight years in the industry and cannot wait for many more years to come. I specialize in teasylights/balayage and blended/natural hair colors. I am beyond proud and so grateful to be co-owner of Luxe and continue to grow with this industry.

Elise was raised in Austin, Texas where she currently still resides, instilling in her true Texas roots. She attended one of the most prestigious Austin Cosmetology Schools, Avenue Five Institute. Elise has been extremely passionate about the hair industry for the entirety of her life. She has no limit when it comes to setting her goals of becoming an elite hair artist, and endlessly expands her capabilities with practice and persistence. Although she specializes in blondes, she thrives in various other skills including color, balayage, teasy lights, tape-in extensions, and updos. She also has her certification for hand-tied extensions. Aside from the interest and enjoyment of the career itself, Elise truly enjoys how rewarding it feels to see a client leave with improved and resounding levels of confidence. Therefore, Elise's career motto is "By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others."


I embarked on my hair journey at 19, kickstarting at Toni & Guy's front desk. From lending a hand at hair shows to photoshoots, I uncovered my passion for turning hair into a vibrant career. With a cosmetology license and a year of extensive education, I've worn many hats in the salon - from assisting top stylists to mentoring newcomers and managing my own business. My love for learning takes me to hair courses in SoHo NYC, Seattle, and across my hometown, Austin, TX. I specialize in color and men's cuts and currently a stylist at Luxe A Boutique Salon.

Ashley started her licensed hairstylist journey in 2004, but has been obsessed with hair since she was 10 years old. She moved to Austin in 2014 from the very beautiful but cold lakeshore of West Michigan. She worked in Lakeway ever since her arrival and she loves the weather and the casual vibe of Austin itself. Ashley is also a musician. She considers herself an artist, and feels honored to get to create a piece of living art you get to wear and enjoy everyday. She is proficient in multiple types of hair extensions, and loves to create stunning multidimensional hair color that is also low maintenance. It can be done! She loves connecting with people and enjoys making them feel good about themselves. Not just their reflection, but deep down inside.
