great hair begins Here...
Carla is a true San Francisco local; born and raised. Initially she had plans of working in the medical field but while in college she thought about hairdressing. Since childhood, she was always playing with her own hair; braiding it, styling it and coloring it. So hairdressing seemed like a natural option to pursue as a side career to help pay for medical school. In 2010 she started classes at the Aveda Institute and found herself instantly falling in love with hairdressing. She hasn't looked back since.
Over her career, Carla has learned that she loves to create easy, wearable and low-maintenance natural looks. She is truly motivated to cater to her clients' needs and wants in a fun and creative way. For her, creative inspiration comes from everywhere.
Carla is adventurous and loves to go out and explore the coast for soulful inspiration, admiring the colors, shapes and textures seen in nature. Because of her love of nature, she also likes to remain environmentally conscious and work with products and companies that also believe and take part in helping the environment. "Animals are our friends; I don't believe in or support animal testing!", says Carla.
She also finds inspiration in artists of all types and the work that they create. The creative process is really interesting to her and resonates with her on a deep level. She loves the process of coming up with a vision and making it a reality- whether it's a photoshoot concept, hair color, or shape in style.
