Here’s a little bit about me and what I love to do.
First things first, I am Aly Augustine Morie. Focused attention to detail is my specialty and what I constantly strive for. I love working with all hair types/textures especially working with waves and curls. I look for clientele who are seeking change. The best thing I can offer are solutions to reinvent yourself through your hair. That being said consulting prior to your appointment is a must. I want to know you, your lifestyle and your goals. Maintenance is whatever you want that to look like. I offer low maintenance services that make a haircut or lived in blonding service transition subtly and naturally. My goal is for your hair to be healthy and represent you. I have been Aveda trained most of my career. I’ve also worked with multiple brands and lines over past decade. At the end of the day what I enjoy best is investing in the human who sits in my chair. Always here to answer your questions and hear out your ideas.

I'm Destonie, and I've been making magic as a stylist in downtown Asheville since 2001. It's been an incredible journey, and I've loved every moment of it.
My passion for color led me to pursue my masters at the Wella Institute in NY. There, I honed my skills and gained a deep understanding of how color can transform not just hair but also people's confidence and self-expression. It's amazing to see my clients light up when they see their new colors, and I'm grateful to be a part of that excitement.
And it didn't stop there—I wanted to be the best in the business. So, I headed to the Bumble & Bumble Academy in NY to earn certificates in cutting. Let me tell you, it was intense, but it has made me the precision-driven stylist I am today. I love creating unique, personalized cuts that suit my clients' personalities and lifestyles perfectly.
When it comes to my personal style, I'm all about that bohemian chic with a rock and roll edge. I adore translating this look for my clients, infusing their hair with a touch of artistry and flair.
My salon is my haven, and I've worked hard to make it a friendly and welcoming space. I believe that connecting with my clients is essential to understand their desires fully. The conversations we have are as important as the hair we create together.
Speaking of which, it's been so heartwarming to receive such positive feedback. One client said, "I've been going to Destonie for about 6 months now and she's amazing! Definitely the best haircuts I've ever had have been done by her." This kind of feedback fuels my passion and keeps me motivated to deliver the best results.
I know finding the right stylist can be tough, but if you're looking for a stylist who will not only give you fabulous colors and cuts but also make you feel like you're hanging out with a friend, then I'm your girl. The pricing is reasonable, and trust me, it's worth every penny.
So, if you're ready to transform your hair and embrace your unique style, I can't wait to meet you. Come on over to my salon, and let's make some magic together!
