TEEN MOM star Ashley Jones is preparing to open her new beauty salon and she gave fans a sneak peek at the location.
The MTV star, 24, shared a video from inside her business, Aries Beauty Studio, in a since-deleted Instagram post.
The video showed a seating area, black and gold accents, yet unstocked shelving, and a brief glimpse at other parts of the salon.
‘ALWAYS AT ARIES’
Although Ashley deleted her Instagram post about the salon, she shared an Instagram Story from inside the salon joking that she’s “Always at @AriesBeautyStudio.”
In another video, this time posted from the salon’s Instagram account, there appeared to be items hanging on racks and folded on shelves.
The account also featured a poll about whether customers would prefer candles or wax melts, suggesting that will be among the items sold there.
Q&A WITH THE BOSS
In a question and answer session on Instagram, Ashley and her business partner, identified only as Jessica, revealed the reason they decided to open in that particular location as well as what they’re most excited about in regards to the salon.
Asked why they decided to open in Modesto, CA, the pair replied: “I mean it’s really a crazy reason……it’s because…..WE LIVE HERE.”
As for what they’re most looking forward to, the business duo said: “We talk about this all the time but the most important thing to us is the vibe of our shop.
“How you feel when you’re there.
“You can get body contouring and facials anywhere so we wanna make sure it’s a space we love to be in so you all do too.”
RAGS TO RICHES
During a June appearance on fellow MTV star Kailyn Lowry‘s podcast, Coffee Convos with Kailyn Lowry and Lindsie Chrisley, she admitted she was homeless and worked as a stripper before landing a spot on the show’s cast.
Ashley shared: “People don’t know that when I got pregnant, we were living in a trap house.
“There was no running water. And [fiancé Bar Smith] was doing his best entrepreneurial things to keep us going but I just had to tell my mom, I couldn’t even warm up food and my mom was like, ‘You guys gotta come back.'”
Ashley said she “felt so low” when she was stripping, noting that it caused a rift between her and her grandparents.
She said: “My granparents literally were like ‘You’re out of our will, good luck, b**ch.’ And when I was stripping, I wasn’t even talking to my family and we were in Vegas with [Bar’s] mom, and things were crazy and it was Bar who kept me going.”
Ashley and Bar, who was arrested over the summer and held a Merced County Sheriff’s jail, have had their share of ups and downs.
During their early appearances on Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant, Ashley accused Bar of domestic violence. They’ve since moved past it, however.
The pair, who share daughter Holly, 3, are currently engaged.
