Knowing that your wedding day can be very busy and chaotic, I cater to the bride by traveling to where you are getting ready. I have been a part of countless weddings and enjoy being a part of the bride’s most memorable day of her life, as the bride is the centerpiece of the whole affair!



Hi there, my name is Ashley Soltis; welcome to my life’s passion! I was born and raised right here in Virginia Beach, as a little girl shadowing and learning from my mother’s 35-year experience as a hair stylist… needless to say, it developed into a lifelong passion! I began my career in Virginia Beach at the age of 17, as this passion took me through cosmetology school where I earned my certification, and also attended a makeup school in Richmond, Virginia. I then went on to begin my own business as a full time hairstylist in 2008. In 2012, I branched off and started Beach Bridal Artistry, catering to brides and models that require on location services! In 2017 I opened up a full service salon in Virginia Beach, Merkai Studio working full time as a color specialist.  I have helped a countless amount of clients bring their visions to life, finding that balance between beauty and creativity, enabling me to discover endless possibilities! I get a tremendous sense of pride and satisfaction helping others in discovering the most beautiful form of themselves.


I serve all of Virginia Beach and surrounding Hampton Roads areas.  I have also traveled to California, Lexington, North Carolina, Kansas...you name it!
