About Carla Pressley

Carla Pressley is a DC based hairstylist and makeup artist.

A mixed chick born the year of the dog with a cancer sign. She grew up in small towns and military bases and is a proud army brat! Loves dogs! Laughs exactly like her two brothers, tries eating vegan most of the time, practices yoga, and tears up every time the father of the bride sees her for the first time.

Her career started in the beauty industry over 15 years ago with PR @ Partners, a Washington D.C. area franchise salon and MAC Cosmetics. Her past clients include Project Runway, Macy’s, Tarte, Marc Jacobs, RuPaul, and Martha Stewart Weddings and more. She's highly reviewed for creating a calming environment. Her passions include working with all skin tones and all hair textures, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQIA rights, global warming, and love.

I work with all skin tones and hair textures. I used to work in a very busy salon and understand face shapes and all the many textures of hair, including MEN!

    Wish we could do it all over again it was SO AMAZING!

    Carla was absolutely amazing! I researched her from out of state for my wedding and could not be any more pleased. She is very understanding of what you want, takes no insult, pays attention to detail, is very emotionally balanced and calm, she is simply professional and exquisite at what she does. She had 2 other girls join her for the day of the wedding and they were both equally incredible. The girls hair and make up was the best I have ever seen at a wedding. Natural, elegant, and flawless as they listed to what the desired look was and nailed it! Overall amazing experience and really good people inside and out!

    Wonderful Experience!

    Where do I start?! From the first email communication, Carla was very professional and attentive. I needed my hair and make up done for an early engagement shoot and she came out to my house at 6am to work her magic. Carla did an amazing job of creating a safe environment for COVID - disinfected everything, had all tools and brushes in individual containers, and we both kept our masks on the entire time, except for when she did my make up. Conversation throughout the appointment was great - not too much and no awkward silences. She used my inspiration pictures to create a look that fit me and my features. Carla kept an eye on the time and continuously let me know how much time was left when we were coming down to the end. I would definitely recommend Carla to anyone for their hair and makeup needs!
