Hey Friends! I am so glad you have found your way over here! My name is Ashley and husband's name is Kent, and together we are the owners and founders of The Glamour Ranch! We are proud parents to a small fur baby named Lane, we both have a passion for the agriculture and ranching sector, love all things western inspired, and share an entrepreneurial spirit that is so incredible. We recently purchased an adorable little farm in West-Central MN, and look forward to inviting more little fur babies into our lives! I must say that having Kent and Lane by my side has been such a blessing and I truly cannot tell you how blessed and humbled I am to have them as such a great support system!
You’re probably wondering, “What in the heck is The Glamour Ranch?” Well, let me give you a little insight! In 2018, with Kent’s assistance, I started a small on-site makeup artistry company in the literal middle of Minnesota (formerly Makeup Artistry with Ashley Marie) as a way to get out of the house and meet fun and exciting new people while helping them feel beautiful on their wedding day, little did I know back then that my beauty biz would rapidly take off and flourish into what it is today. What began as a small hobby or side hustle became a passion and love for my new found career that I could never imagine. I left my 9-5 late in the fall of 2019, anxious for what the future would hold but filled with hope that God would show us the way!
With the pandemic in full swing that following spring, I was quite fearful for what was in store for Makeup Artistry with Ashley Marie, I once again found myself praying for guidance and assistance, and for God to show us the path. I had no idea how incredibly strong the support I would receive from my family and friends, as well as my clients and social media followers would be. In 2020 alone, Makeup Artistry with Ashley Marie took on 45 events and I was just so humbled by all of it!
Now, fast forward to spring of 2021. I have added two more incredible artists to my team and rebranded to become - The Glamour Ranch! Not only do we now offer onsite hair and makeup artistry to all of our clients in MN, ND, and SD - but after much discussion with Kent, and many conversations with manufacturers and vendors, we are proud to be launching ShopTheGlamourRanch.com!
Why the shift? Let me first say that The Glamour Ranch is not going anywhere! We will continue to offer incredible customer experiences for our clients whether for senior photos, boudoir, bridal, or any other event! Please find our beauty services at www.TheGlamourRanch.com!
About the lashes, as a professional makeup artist I have never been “happy” with the faux mink lashes that I pick up from big cosmetic brands. Whether too full, too crispy, or just plain funky... I wanted more. I wanted to create a product that I would be proud to put on my beautiful clients, and so we worked with a few different manufacturers and finally set our sights on one that we could customize all of the components that were important to us! We now offer our own lash adhesive, as well as 7 different styles of beautiful mink lashes!
If you know Kent and I, you also know we can be impulsive and dive right in. So... why stop at lashes? We also set out to find great western inspired accessories as well to offer with the mink lashes so regardless of your event, we can help you find the perfect components to make your look uniquely you!
We are so grateful to each and every one of you, and truly cannot wait to bring you along as our business and this brand continue to grow and evolve! From the bottom of our hearts - thank you for shopping small and thank you for inviting us into your homes. We are so appreciative of you!
Great Big Hugs!
Ashley and Kent
