A Little About Genevieve "Nev" Levin
Credits include co-collaborating on the multi award-winning short film "Unchastened", features in the New York Times and wedding blogs. Nev's work also appears in books and magazines all the way around the globe to China. Her "gypsy spirit" guides her to work on the festival circuit
A professional henna artist certified with the ICNHA (International Certification in Natural Henna Arts) since 2004, Nev is also a multi-media artist working with acrylic, paper, fabric, found objects, and all things that shine. After earning her BFA ('97) from The Maine College of Art, Nev spent nine years working as a studio potter and art educator, assisting people with special needs and the elderly to enhance their lives through creative expression. In 2006 Nev made the decision to pursue her dream of running her own business and has since been a full-time henna artist. Her success with two businesses, ReMarkable Blackbird and Blackbird Studios has been well worth the initial risk.
Henna has put Nev in a wide variety of environments; She is as comfortable presenting to large groups in libraries, henna conferences and schools as she is working in more intimate settings with mama's-to-be for belly henna, brides on that big day or people undergoing treatment for cancer.
Ashley's Salon is owned by third generation hairdresser Ashley Emma, an award-winning hairdresser with 7 years of experience. Ashley's Salon is in Ashley's home, but she is willing to travel to you with her assistant for weddings, and this service is her specialty. Her remarkable updos that stay in for two days are so well known in the Biddeford area that she gets booked up for prom months and advance. Updos are $45 to $55 each, and makeup is $20. She uses Bare Minerals foundation and E.L.F. cosmetics.
Ashley cares about every individual customer and will work to give you an updo, haircut, color or other hair service that is customized for you. Ashley grew up in her mother's home salon, Susie's Salon (Ashley's mother is now her assistant) and has apprenticed in a barber shop. She graduated top of her class from Cosmotech, winning several awards including: being the first to finish all requirements, getting all high 90's on her State Boards, and having the cleanest work station.
Ashley's Salon is located in a quiet country field in rural Biddeford. Instead of city noise and traffic, you will hear birds singing and the wind in the trees. Look for the yellow house with the blue door.
