Thank you for looking into my page; I hope I can soon share my passion for my work and the beauty industry with you.  I am a Columbus native, and after graduating from The University of Tennessee I started traveling abroad and realized my dream career of being a hairdresser could come true.  I was trained with Paul Mitchell and then started my career as a color/cutting specialist at Columbus' salon chain, Kenneth's. I fulfilled yet another dream in 2014 when I started a salon in Tennessee but soon realized there really is no place like home.  I love creating a personalized style after a thorough consulation and then educating my clients to recreate their look at home.  In my loft guests receive the ultimate experience through an inviting and professional environment.

For years after moving out of Columbus, I would wait to get my hair cut until I was back in town visiting family just so that I could go to Carley. She's seriously amazing at what she does and is one of the easiest people to talk to at the same time...you can't find a better combo.

Carley is the best! i've been going to her for about 4 years now and every time I go, she gives me exactly what I want!

Carley is the best! My young daughter has blonde, curly hair and now combs and fixes her own hair because Carley taught her how to care for it! She listened to my daughter, helped her decide on how to keep it cut to make it easier for her, and, she was so gentle and caring not to pull or tug on her sensitive scalp. No more arguments with my little one to fix her hair! Carley also cuts and colors my hair and does a terrific job. It's so easy to do because she followed my hair's natural way of curling. I get compliments on it all the time!

I have been going to see Carley since I relocated from CA two years ago. I don't trust anyone else with my hair and she has been a life saver on many an occasion. I trust her completely to make the best choices to ease any hair troubles I may have.

Carley is the best hair stylist I have ever gone to! She really listens to what you want but then gives recommendations to make it really work for you. Plus, she's a doll to talk to and hang out with in the process. Couldn't recommend more!

Carley is absolutely amazing! This is the first time I've left a salon feeling like I got exactly what I wanted. She really listens to your wishes and is great at communicating what she think would be best for you, but also making sure that you're ok with that! Carley did an awesome job with my blonde color and now I'll never go anywhere else. Not only is she a fabulous hairdresser, but she is also the sweetest person and I'm so glad that I've found her. Don't think twice- book with Carley!

“"I became a client of Carley's when she worked in TN and was amazed with what she could do with my hair. Not only is my cut from her perfect every time I go, but she spends extra time to show me how I can fix it at home-- and she doesn't just show me one style, she shows me a couple!! I love Carley dearly. Appointments with her are so much more than just a cut and color-- she makes you feel at home and is a joy to get to know! I hate she has left TN but I will be making the road trip to see her in Columbus. "”

Carley Cahill is the absolute BEST when it comes to hair! I have been using Carley for years for my cut and colors and am always beyond happy with the results! I consider myself a "tough client," really picky and particular about my hair and the color and Carley always exceeds my expectations. One of the things she is best at is really taking the time to see her client's vision and provide them with exactly what they want. Last winter Carley did an ombre color effect to my hair and it turned out incredible, I got endless amounts of compliments on it! I highly recommend Carley for any cut or color needs, I am so thrilled Carley is back in Columbus!!!

I live in Cleveland but always made special trips to Columbus to get my hair cut and colored by Carley. I've been to four stylists since she left, and not one has compared. I am beyond thrilled that she is once again only a few hours drive away. Not only does she have a fantastic technique, but she listens to what you really want. She's also fun to be around. Her positive attitude and energy are contagious. Expect to leave her chair looking fabulous and feeling great. Congrats, Carley! Welcome back! -Michelle S.

"Carley is an amazing stylist! She has an uncanny ability to identify the right look for each person, and does not hesitate to suggest the best hairstyle for your face shape, skin tone, and will gladly help read your mind for just the look you are trying to achieve. Definitely book your next appointment with Carley!

I am beyond excited that Carley is back in Columbus!! Her other clients can testify to her ability to please the pickiest of customers, but I am the opposite and love Carley because she works with me in my ignorance about caring for and styling my own hair. She always has a creative idea for my cuts and they always turn out perfectly. She takes a genuine interest in each client, not just making small talk, so it is always a pleasure to spend time with her! Welcome home Carley!

Finding a stylist who understands short hair can be challenging. Carley does a fantastic job with short cuts, I am always amazed at the volume and shape she is able to give my hair. She always takes time before she starts to understand what you are and are not looking for and to offer suggestions. I highly recommend Carley (and she's a pleasure to be around)!
