Have you ever been looking through Pinterest, pinning random pics of cute hair, and feeling totally overwhelmed and confused about what to have done?

Have you ever asked yourself "I wonder what my stylist would do if they had free reign over my hair"?

I have created a quiz to help me get to know you and your hair so I can handcraft the perfect look for you!

Fun Facts:

Hi, I'm Carly!

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I moved up to Sacramento in 2005 where I attended Sac State and received my BA in Theatre. Yes, I am a musical-loving Saggitarius with a strong need to be creative, inspired, and connected to good people at all times. At 23 I decided to go to Paul Mitchell The School and get my Cosmetology License.

I fell in love with this industry and that passion has only grown stronger over the past 10 years.

I married my amazing husband Nick in 2014 and we opened Aria Collective Salon in June of 2015. Since then, we have expanded and we now have The Salon, which is the home of 6 hairstylists and The Studio, a space right next door that has a private lash room for our eyelash extension artist. Aria Weddings was born in 2018 and The Studio serves as a private space for Brides to have their trials done and/or their day of beauty, and hosts private beauty parties for you and your friends to get pampered.

I specialize in beautiful, dimensional color and  soft, textured cuts. I love helping women embrace their natural texture & love working with curly hair. I strive to create a whole new kind of consultation experience. I have crafted a quiz that helps me to custom create a hair design for you based on your desires, lifestyle, face shape, and hair type. I also specialize in Wedding hair and makeup and love enhancing natural beauty and finding the perfect style for your big day.

I believe beauty should be approachable and it's for everyone. I want to empower others to embrace their own beauty, live their authentic self,  and learn how to keep their look at home.

I'm a hairstylist because I love making people feel beautiful, I love the creativity, and

I wanted to do something that makes me smile everyday

When I'm not behind the chair, on location for a wedding, or working from my home office on the business, I am a Mom of 2 little boys (2 & 5). I love decorating my home, going on hikes with my family, cooking healthy meals, attempting to keep my plant babies alive, and spending time with friends having game nights while drinking wine.

My life's mission is to create authentic connections with others and I'm grateful every day that I am in a career that allows me to do that, while also playing with hair!

-I love black coffee and can't go without a cup in the morning

-I have wanderlust and love to travel (I'm an Enneagram 7 to the core)

-I feel the most me when I'm outside in nature or at the beach

-I love to act, but my passion in Theatre is directing and choreographing

-I taught at Paul Mitchell for 4 years

-I am an eternal optimist and almost always positive
