Hi there! I am Ashley Jo Gillan, hairdresser at Magdalena Hair, formally Lavender & Hops Style Lounge, in downtown Darlington. I am so glad you are here. No matter what the reason is to bring you to my website, I want you to know that I can help you find a style and hair routine that makes your life so much more simple. I believe there is no bad hair, only ways to make the hair you have easier to understand. 


I can totally relate to how busy life can be as a mom myself. I know first hand how hard it is to get out the door feeling confident with 4 kids at home. An effortless style is a must. As a hairdresser with 20 years of experience and a certified life coach.  I have seen and worked with all types of textures, and each one is so beautiful. My mission is to give you a quality salon experience with an affordable price. Not every hair service needs to be a huge investment for every appointment. 


When I am not in the salon you will find me running my kids to all their activities, enjoying time in the concession stand at sporting events. I also spend my Sundays at Saint Stephens Orthodox Church in Crawfordsville. I like to cook, meal plan for real life, and organize my life. I also have a slight obsession with clear plastic organizing containers. 


If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a text or book an appointment for a consultation any time.  I look forward to meeting you!
