Hot Mess Studio is proud to announce that Master stylist Ray Vail has joined the tribe. Ray formerly owned Chakra, a beautiful and successful salon / spa here in Asbury Park. With almost 20 years of experience, and his incredible skills behind the chair, Ray now becomes our Director of Education. The Hot Mess Studio team will be nothing short of incredible, as Ray introduces our young up and coming artists to the industry. He will also keep our veteran stylists current in the latest trends and techniques. Rays responsibilities in this role will include producing, leading, and scheduling educational workshops. In addition, he will be helping to create special events for our staff members to teach our clients the best tip and tricks for at home styling.
