He says things like, “I don’t just do hair, I do careers…” and, “Beauty isn’t an any-day thing, it’s an everyday thing.” And normally, Ashley Javier caters through his exclusive NYC salon to starlets, supermodels and socialites (a.k.a. the S-crowd).

But thanks to Allure magazine’s new digital channel, 16 lucky regular-crowd gals including 27-year-old McCann Erickson account supervisor Vanessa King are receiving Javier makeovers. For the series Hair Tyrant with Ashley Javier.

Javier is a natural-born reality Web series star. He’s blunt without being overly mean, glides nimbly through the video frame and punctuates it all with pithy blasts of healthy self-esteem.
