Unfortunately, a burglar broke in and broke into her hair salon this week, Ashley posted a security video and asked the community for help.
On Wednesday, February 1, Ashley Martson shared a security video and plea for help on Instagram.
“Seeking public support!” she began. “Industrial Her highway area, does anyone look familiar in this video?”
“These individuals have well over 30,000 in products, supplies, scissors and dryers,” Ashley said.
“And the safe where the gun was,” she revealed. It’s so scary!
Ashley then said, “If anyone has any information or knowledge please contact Springettsbury Township Police at 717.757.3525 or DM. Anonymous tips are respected! Thank you for sharing this!”
On Thursday morning, Ashley posted a lengthy post reflecting on this crisis and some silver lining.
“Yesterday was a challenge for me. I just got out of beauty school and built my own salon from scratch,” she began.
“Now that we’re almost two years old, we’ve made @martsonhaircompany a success with the help of our staff!”
“What we spend most of our time in the salon is teaching @ethos_beauty to perfect their craft,” Ashley wrote.
“I spent countless hours in the community,” she continued. “We’ve been to multiple hair shows, not just for education, but to talk to some of the best in the industry to make our salon a success.”
“I cut my hair while wiping people’s tears. I made my bride the most beautiful woman in the world on her big day,” Ashley said. Sometimes a haircut is more than just a haircut.
“I trimmed the deceased’s hair to say a final goodbye to a loved one and the world,” she recalls. Again, it probably meant a lot to the many loved ones who survived.
“I’ve accomplished a lot in the last two years,” Ashley wrote. “My salon, my staff and myself didn’t deserve what happened to us yesterday!”
“Yes, I have insurance and everything will be replaced,” Ashley confirmed. So that’s all!
“It’s a sentimental possession that can’t be replaced,” she noted. “The scissors I used for my child’s first haircut, my deceased spouse’s belongings dear to my stylist, and a few other things he had!”
Years ago, we reported on how Ashley survived that terrifying ordeal when she was a teenager.
“I don’t feel comfortable in my literal dream salon anymore!” she lamented. “Neither do our staff.”
“Today I’ll be at the salon from 10-8 to work alongside amazing stylists @lady.j.hair and @love4hair13 and do what we love,” Ashley vowed.
“The way the entire staff rushed to the salon when I told them what had happened almost made me cry,” she expressed.
“They are wonderful and irreplaceable,” Spit Ashley. “You can’t stop us here at @martsonhaircompany, but give it a try!”
“Special thanks to @springettspd and the detectives who worked so hard on the scene yesterday for hours and treated us so well!” Ashley pointed out.
“Also, thank you for all the kind words and support from my community, clients, and everyone else who has reached out!” she concluded.
We are saddened to hear that this has happened to Ashley and her workplace.
