Inside the Salon

Best of the Valley

Not to toot our own horn (well, maybe a little), but we have been voted Best of the Valley in 2017, 2015, 2013, and 2012 by YOU - our loyal clients! We couldn't be prouder to serve our wonderful community.

Founded in 2008

In October of 2008, Richard and Bette DaLee launched DaLee Salon & Spa with a modest staff of 6 and a vision of top-notch service for the Montrose community. Over the years we have grown in staff and reputation and have established ourselves as Montrose’s premiere day spa and salon.

A hallmark of our business is pride in our community, and you’ll find DaLee Salon & Spa participating in local events including the Parade of Lights and Main in Motion. We even hosted make-up for “I Am Alone”, the zombie movie shot right here in Montrose. The relationships we’ve built have earned us the honor of being voted Best of the Valley not once, but four times!

Longtime stylist and salon manager Ashley Bates and her husband Cody took ownership of the salon in October of 2015 and have dedicated themselves to upholding the DaLee name.

Meet the Owners

Ashley and Cody Bates

Ashley joined the DaLee Salon & Spa family as a stylist when it opened in 2008. With a penchant for business, she quickly took on the role of salon manager and never looked back. In 2015, they took over the business from then owner Bette DaLee, who had become a close friend and mentor over the years.

“I have watched a young girl grow and bloom into a confident, enterprising young woman, wife and mother.” - Bette DaLee

Ashley and Cody live in Montrose with their two young sons. They are active in the community, both through their business and personal lives. You can often find them on the softball field together with their co-ed team, family and friends cheering them on. Always looking for adventures, Ashley and Cody enjoy hiking, camping, and traveling. The cornerstone of their relationship is faith and family. In business, as in daily life, they strive to be kind and compassionate leaders.
