Ashley Batlle, Owner of Beauty Batlles by Ashley, is determined to reveal your inner radiance while inspiring both men and women to feel comfortable within their own skin. As you can likely relate, we all have some sort of small insecurities about ourselves. That’s why Ashley is fearless when it comes to enhancing your self-esteem with an array of cosmetic treatments because, as she states, “self-confidence is a super power!” This week’s ChikChat feature is focused solely on Ashley and how her treatments can change your own personal self-reflection both inside and out.
What inspired you to break out on your own, become an Entrepreneur and open Beauty Batlles by Ashley? Beauty Batlles honestly started on it’s own. I got my Microblading certification to make a little extra money on the side and as I began to get busier and with clients mentioning other services that they might be interested in, I started to grow into what it has now become today. My clients are my inspiration and family is my drive for Beauty Batlles.
Tell us more about the Cosmetic treatments you provide and which service(s) you find are the most popular? I offer a limited amount of services and they are all very popular.
Starting a business is always tough, but family and friends can act as a huge support system. How have you joggled all your responsibilities, and what memorable experiences can you tell us about how your loved ones have been an integral part of your journey? It sure has been a journey! When I first started thinking about taking the Microblading course I was becoming frustrated with how far away, long and expensive the course was. I mentioned it to my family and a friend about what I was hoping to do and what my challenges were… the very next day my friend shares a post of someone locally offering the course for a very reasonable cost and that’s where the blessings began to continue with my trainer’s support. Stacie Alicea owner of Salon413 didn’t even think twice about opening her doors for me to offer my services and has not stopped supporting me. With all of my adventures along side of the entire Salon413 family who continue referring me to their clients. My clients are the most amazing ones and my business has been built upon their support and promotions of Beauty Batlles. My mother Sonia Batlle, sister Shar Batlle and husband Gregory Ramos have allowed me to practice on them and assisted with the care of my daughters. But the real MVP would have to be Greg for supporting me and taking on all of my responsibilities with our daughters and cheering me on while I continue to build and grow this dream.
Do you have a favorite client post-treatment memory? One where the service(s) you provided drastically changed someone's life for the better? Oh this one is hard to answer considering that the majority of my services are life changing. Most of my Microblading clients have been living with thin, oddly shaped or scarred eyebrows for years. I have seen so many of my amazing clients cry from happiness from their transformation and that right there just tells me I am doing the right thing. I have also had very emotional moments with my body contouring clients where they would cry because their bright, deep-set stretch marks have lightened and they feel more comfortable in their own skin. What I do is build confidence in my clients, men and woman alike!
Favorite cosmetic treatment to perform? I love every service I offer. I actually have decided that if a service doesn’t make me happy, I am not offering it. My favorite part of my business is the confidence I am able to give my clients, everyone is beautiful, I am just happy that I am able to enhance it for them! But if I had to pick one it would be Microblading, that’s the one that is the most challenging and artistic!
Have you always had a passion for the permanent cosmetic field? What gravitated you toward this venture? I have always had a passion for the cosmetic field. I’ve had my cosmetology license since 2002 and was a freelance makeup artist for many years. Although I moved away from it all for a while as I started a family, I was intrigued by the uniqueness of the specialized cosmetic world. If there is one thing about me it’s that I always want to be a different and great at what I do.
Do you have any inside tips, tricks or secrets that can help us ChikChat readers stay flawless during these long and cold winter months? Sure, come see me!! These less sunny months are the best to get your Microblading done. Lash Lift and Tint will keep you from having mascara running down your face due to wind chills. And don’t forget, summer bodies are made during the winter months. So a little Lipo 360 (a combination of lipo freeze and body contouring around your entire torso) will help you get beach body ready!
'Tis the season, are you offering any holiday specials or deals at the moment? I’m offering $100 off of Microblading during the month of December and a very special promotional price for Lipo 360 available at consultation time.
To end, please tell our readers (in one word) how you would describe your boss-chik business? Ahhhhhhhhhhh! LOL. Determined.
