Hey there,

I’m Carissa aka The Beauty Navigator đź‘‹ if you’re looking for a customized experience, a cut and color truly tailored for you I’m the stylist for you.


I’ve been doing hair for 15 years & have always had a passion for it. Ive continued education throughout my career through WELLA, L’Oreal, TIGI, Kerastase, R+co, Moroccan oil, business of balayage, etc. attending in many places like NYC, Miami, Texas, Paris, D.C. and right here in Virginia! I love sharing my knowledge with my clients and fellow stylists.

Carissa has been doing my hair for almost seven years now. Before her I couldn’t find anyone to give me what I truly wanted. That’s because they weren’t educating me on hair. She is so informative and extremely personable. She is also very honest, if something you like may not work for your type of hair she will tell you, but also help you get to the closest thing possible or something even better! I’ve had two pregnancies and that comes with hair loss. This last pregnancy I lost an extreme amount of hair and then again when I shouldn’t have been losing it. She’s been on such a journey with my hormones affecting my hair. This most recent visit my hair is finally thickening back up and growing healthy and I can honestly say I have happy tears because I felt so good when I left her salon. I feel like I would be a mess without her! Please please please if you haven’t booked an appointment…. Do it! You won’t be disappointed!

Carissa makes my hair dreams come true every time! She is so great at listening to what you want & she nails it. Spending money to see any other stylist is a waste.
