The Dani Tye Team
Owner / Curly Hair Specialist / Grey Blending Specialist
My name is Ashley Starnes. I am the owner and a hairstylist of what is on point to be the best hair salon and spa in Granbury. I started my career in Southlake, Texas where I worked under one of the best hairstylists and salon owner in the industry. It was there where I was able to learn about the industry and extend my education by working with some of the top brands like Aveda, Bumble and Bumble Eufora and SEVEN. Being in the industry for over 19 years now healthy hair is my number one focus. Eufora, Aveda and REF Color has given me the opportunity to create amazing colors and still leave the hair healthy and shiny. I specialize in cutting curly hair, balayage, color corrections, blending grey and some of the most natural of highlighting skills around.
Salon And Guest Coordinator

Jane grew up in a small town called Winters, Texas as a child and relocated to Granbury just recently. As a young adult she decided she wanted to be become a massage therapist, but not just any massage therapist. Jane has a desire to become a Rolfer. What is a Rolfer you might ask? Through soft tissue manipulation and movement education, Rolfers affect body posture and structure over the long-term. Unlike massage, which often focuses on relaxation and relief of muscle discomfort, Rolfing is aimed at improving body alignment and functioning. In Janes journey she decided to come work for us to learn more hands on about the beauty industry before achieving her goals of becoming a Massage Therapist, and Certification of Advanced Rolfing.
