The Benchmark StudioAshley Bench, stylist and owner of of The Benchmark Studio, 930 Logan Street, Noblesville, officially opened her salonsdoors in the spring of 2020 with the vision of creating a chic, welcoming environment for clients and ample synergistic business opportunities for other like-minded stylists and beauty professionals. She set out to build a salon strikingly different from similar businesses and is confident she is fulfilling that goal.

I bought the building in February, 2020, did a complete renovation through the pandemic, and opened my salon in May of 2020,” Bench says. We are a full service, open concept, booth-rental salon, and we also have private suites available for rent.”

Bench, who is also a stylist, set out to make her salon stand out from other similar businesses. She believes she met her goal.

When I decided to open my business, I wanted to differentiate my salon from other booth rental salons,” she says. I love the social aspect of our open-concept salon. At The Benchmark Studio, although we run our separate independent businesses, we still work as a team.”

Bench loves the way everyone at the salon looks out for each other.

We love to share our new techniques and ideas with one another. ,” Bench says. Our continuing education is important to us, so we take different classes together. I believe that supporting one another creates a strong thriving business.”

Bench noted that The Benchmark Studio offers haircuts, color, extensions, and bridal services.

We are the only salon in Noblesville that carries the luxury Oribe hair care products,” she says. Our stylists and our clients can’t get enough of them. We’ve had an incredible amount of positive feedback from all of our clients. They feel pampered and relaxed as soon as they step into our luxurious salon.”

The Benchmark Studios spa services include facial waxing, lash extensions, Swedish massage, deep tissue massages, cupping, migraine treatment, and Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.

Independent Businesses

There’s nothing that gives me more joy in my business than walking my renters through the process of becoming independent, and watching their individual businesses grow,” Bench says.

Bench added that she knows just how tough it can be to start a business.

A lot of my renters are first time business owners, and the idea of going out on your own can be extremely intimidating,” Bench says. My job is to encourage them, and help them realize how successful they can be when they make their own schedule, set their own prices, and become their own bosses.”

Bench noted that she still has open space for interested, driven people to join the salons team.

We still have a few salon chairs, and a couple of suites available for rent,” Bench says. We would love to add some more people/professionals to our team.”

Bench says she loves being a part of downtown Noblesville.

Even though Noblesville is growing and changing rapidly, the downtown area still has a small town feel,” Bench says. I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of this thriving tight-knit community. There has been an incredible amount of love and support flowing in since I opened my doors. I couldn’t be more grateful.”
