Ashley is an extremely talented stylist, and one of the best in the business. She is the only person I trust with my hair, and I have been going to her exclusively for almost 10 years. Even when I lived out of state, I made trips back just so Ashley could do my hair. I HIGHLY recommend Oak & Iron, you will not be disappointed! The new shop is beautiful with a central location, which is convenient if you are coming from the suburbs. Do yourself a favor and get on her books!

I got a tattoo from Krista and from the first email I knew I made the right choice. She is so comforting and supportive the whole session which was especially appreciated because it was my first tattoo. She explained everything that was going to happen and kept checking to make sure I was good and frequently asked if I needed a break. There were no surprises or concerns. And I left with a tattoo that was better than I imagined. Aside from Kristas excellent work the atmosphere of Oak and Iron was phenomenal. Everyone was kind, happy, and inclusive!! 1000/10 strongly recommend!

I cannot stop recommending Oak & Iron to everyone I meet. I have been tattooed for over a year by Krista and recently got my hair REHABILITATED (is the best word) by Enzo, both my tattoos and my hair were done to perfection so much so that I will not be going anywhere else. If I could give 10/5 stars I would.

I can’t speak highly enough about Ashley. I’ve followed Ashley through three places and will always recommend her. She’s absolutely incredible and so talented. Every friend I have referred to her has become a client for life.

Oak & Iron as a whole is innovative, a salon and tattoo studio owned by two women who strive to deliver a safe space, a clean environment and a proper service. Truly a one of a kind experience to hit Buffalo.
