Nation’s Outfitters Collaboration


In 2008 Lisa Ann Muir-Taylor, one of our amazing clients, was given a vision of a clothing company that would provide girls and women across the nation with modest and fashionable clothes. By the grace of God, Nations was launched in 2010. After many years of much success and many re-workings, Nations has now re-launched to bring you a wider selection of the clothes. The best part? They’re our neighbors! We walked on over to their lofty studio filled with adorable clothes and tall brick walls to shoot a bit of their current inventory. We happened to come on the day they were being featured on ABC33 for a much deserved segment. We took a few of the girls from the company and 2 of our very own behind our buildings to shoot a few of the looks. Hair and make up by our very own.


Here is Sarah wearing the Nations Skinny Jean in Maroon.



Chelsea is wearing the Georgia cover up with the berry Polly top.

Here, the Amelia Top is being worn by Julie Kate with the Nations Skinny Jean in Charcoal.


Lisa Ann believes that at Nations Outfitters it’s what you do in your clothes that makes you beautiful. Not only do they want to provide you with the latest trends and styles, they also want to support those who are making our world a more beautiful place. They believe in promoting organizations that are making a difference across the nations. Morgan Ashley couldn’t be more proud to be partnering with Nation Outfitters  to help promote their amazing company. With Christmas coming up, we’d love for you to visit their online shop and be a part of a gift that keeps on giving!

Game Day Style


The football festivities have been up and going for a little bit now… Which is quite a big deal here in the south. Every weekend is full of tailgating, parties and absurd amounts of fandom.

In light of all the annual excitement. We got to thinking of how to do all these things fashionably.  One of our receptionist, Candace,  just happens to be gifted in fashion. So she helped us put together some outfits to reflect a stylish look for fall football!

Candace for Alabama. Roll Tide!

Instead of being decked out in all houndstooth or walking around like a crimson candy cane. Here is a great way to subtly wear your teams colors! Try adding in your teams colors with bright accessories!

Hair: Candace Phillips (Her hair doesn’t even need to be touched.) Make up: Molly Stilley

Meg for Auburn. War Eagle!

Alright, so it’s not quite cold yet but soon these games will be extra chilly at night! Throw in a good blanket to support your team and stay warm!

Also, another idea would be to use patterns and variations of shades!

Hair and Make up: Sarah Parker

Candace for Alabama. Roll Tide!

Represent some Bear Bryant with subtle pops of houndstooth. We love how flowy the fabric is also! It makes the prettiest texture and of course layering things for fall is just the best.

Meg for Auburn. War Eagle!

Well, not all of us have this amazing blazer. If you can find one with your teams colors though grab it! So amazing. This outfit was one of our favorites because we want every piece of it!

Hair and Make up: Sarah Parker

You just can’t go wrong with a classic skirt. Here is a way to look sophisticated at your game day event. Now we wouldn’t recommend this look as much for scaling the stands at Bryant Denny but at least you’ll look fly if you do!

We hope this helps you feel more inspired as you are getting ready for your next game day! Be sure to tag us on instagram if you have more cute ideas for fall fashion at @morganashleysalon!

A Fall to Inspire


Can you feel it? Fall? Today we had the doors wide open enjoying this rare cool afternoon in August!

In honor of this new season approaching, We gathered a few of our local beauties to showcase the fall trends that we see coming.

1. The Faux Bob

Want the look of a bob but can’t commit to cutting off the locks? Then you should try this. Pinning the hair underneath its self will make it appear like you have your very own long bob. Curl the hair and tease the crown, teasing the ends will help keep the hair pinned. Roll the hair underneath itself, pin and spray away! Let the stragglers straggle to make it appear more relaxed.  Then when you’re done having short hair, take it down and go back to your long locks.

Products that help:

– Bumble and bumble’s spray de mode

Bumble and bumble’s Thickening Contour Creme <3

Hair: Morgan Mondy Make Up: Sarah Parker

2. Textured Braid

Thankfully braids will always be in style. This fall we see very textured braids coming in. The looser and messier the better. Tip: get some color dimension in your hair, this helps pop that texture through out your messy styles!

Products that help:

Bumble and bumble’s Dry Spun Finish

Bumble and bumble’s Surf Spray

Hair: Beth Russell Make up: Beth Russell

3. Classic Full Pixie

For those of you that are wanting a dramatic change this fall, we suggest going big with it. We recommend this classic pixie with fullness! We like how this could easily be a textured style, but we love it smooth and elegant. (Think Audry Hepburn)

Products that will help:

Bumble and bumble’s Thickening Hairspray

Bumble and bumble’s All Style Blowdry

Bumble and bumble’s Brilliantine

Hair: Morgan Mondy Make Up: Beth Russel

Don’t Blow It


We are absolutely loving Bumble’s new product: Don’t Blow It. You apply and you literally don’t blow dry your hair! The answer to our problems have arrived! The model for this post, Autumn (who also happens to be one of our lovely stylists) shows us how she applies and the techniques she uses that give her that amazing natural texture!

Step 1: Apply product at roots and smooth your hairline with  your finger tips. The important step here is really tugging on any cowlicks you may have.

Step 2: Massage the product deep into the root. Another very important step, while you’re massaging it, make sure to push the root off of the scalp with a pinching motion to create volume.

Step 3: Now apply product into mid-shaft and ends in a scrunching manner. Don’t be afraid to over use product here, the more the merrier! Use a towel to get any excess water out.

Step 4: Once product has been applied, start finger twisting 1 inch sections to encourage wave. Let the hair air dry in the twists you just created. Once fully dry,  break them up with your hands!

Step 5: Finish with Spray De Mode hair spray and rock your natural new look!!

Thank you so much Autumn for showing us how you create your beautiful style!

Yours in style,
