Ashley Piotrowski

The Queen Bee

Ashley, owner of The Bronzed Bee, has a passion for making people feel beautiful. With a Bachelors of Science in Forensics Criminal Justice and law, she made a drastic career and life change by transitioning into the beauty industry.  After graduating from The Rizzieri Aveda Institute of Esthetics in New Jersey, she decided to merge her passion for Esthetics with her innate business and leadership skills, and The Bronzed Bee was born!

“When people look good on the outside, they feel good on the inside and are more likely to go out into the world with a positive attitude.  I’m just glad I can say I had some part of that!”

In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family and friends and is the proud Mama of HRH Mojo and HRH Lady, who are The Bronzed Bee’s sassy mascots.

HRH Mojo P. Skinner

The Bronzed Bee Crier

mojoMojo was rescued in the Spring of 2012 and has never looked back! He opened The Bronzed Bee with his Mom and proudly worked in the front window of our Pine Street location, greeting and snuggling clients. After moving to the new Locust Street location he decided to retire as The Bronzed Bee Crier to focus on activities he’s more passionate about, such as sleeping and sunbathing.

He spends his afternoons sashaying through Center City–mostly in Rittenhouse Square–with one of his fabulous outfits on almost any day of the week.


Mojo’s hours: Not Currently Scheduled.

HRH Lady Skinner

The Duchess 

img_5698Lady was rescued in the Fall of 2015, and has grown into the sweetest, most loving little girl! She’s always excited to meet new people and she especially loves snuggling clients while they get their lashes done.

She loves strutting around The Bronzed Bee in tu-tus and fur coats; and can often be found keeping her brother, Mojo in check. If she’s not doing that she can be found at home digging at her Mom’s persian rugs in order to eat the  vegetable dye,(see photo to the left–looks a little like a mugshot…). She loves long walks on the beach, chasing birds in the square and watching soccer with her Dad.





Lady’s hours: Not Currently Scheduled.
