Carla takes exceptional care of her clients. While her practical styling skills are exemplar to most, her knowledge base of hair health is prodigious. Not only is this knowledge at the forefront of every decision she makes,  she is also able to explain each decision in a way that makes the client feel like they're an active participant in their transformation. This is important. We've all gone into a salon at some point in our lives with an outcome in mind; not fully understanding or aware of what our hair is capable of. Or, on the contrary, maybe we're wanting to play it too safe, avoiding something daring or cutting-edge. Regardless of the circumstance, Carla meets every client where they're at. She has a way with combining her sensitive and authentic spirit with education and consideration to what each client needs. And,  she doesn't keep secrets. Many master stylists withhold details about their process so you have to always need them. When the pandemic hit,  she was the only stylist who specializes in extensions and natural hair to take the time with her clients virtually to ensure safe and proper removal and/or maintenance until it was safe to be seen in person. With so many methods to install extensions,  she's the only stylist who has literally mastered just about every technique on the market. Whether undetectable fusion or a seamless sew-in, nothing but the best. Her own line features some of the most flawless hand-tied wefts I've ever seen. A real class act and one of the best to ever do it in Northeast Ohio. She's where versatility and excellence collide.

Carla is amazing! I have a bob cut that actually maintains its style for months because her cut is that good. I have been her client for 5 years and never been disappointed. As a stylist, she is honest (whether you like it or not) about what will work for you and has the experience and expertise to back it up. Her space at Salon Lofts is beautiful. She is also using products that are environmentally friendly and safe for your hair and body. I am so happy she is pursuing her dream!

There's not enough words to say how much i appreciate Carla. Carla has been doing my hair for 6yrs. I first met Carla when she was a student at Brown Aveda pursuing on becoming a stylist. I have truly seen Carla grow in her career over the years from going to school, to working in a salon & now pursuing her dream by having her own salon. Her salon is beautiful & definitely matches her personality. I am truly happy & excited for her. Her work trully is amazing & speaks for itself. I am always amazed by the work she does to my hair. My hair is naturally curly & thick. When i leave the salon I am always happy with my new hairdo.There is no one i trust then Carla. I highly recommend Carla
