About

On WeddingWire since 2009

Brides and grooms come to me for my light handed glamorous looks. Many of my clients are not looking for transformations but rather an enhancement of their own beauty.
I’m a DC based hairstylist and makeup artist. A mixed chick born the year of the dog with a cancer sign and I love animals! I am an expert at consultations. I love to problem solve and offer solutions. I have a lot of experience working in the fashion industry and television but nowadays I focus on weddings and special events. I work with all hair textures and skin tones. Fill out the form on my website for fastest service.

Excellent Experience working with Carla & team!

Working with Carla and her team was so easy. She was able to do exactly what we envisioned with our hair and make up. Everyone in our wedding that worked with Carla and her team had a great experience as well. She even stuck around to do touchups right before our ceremony (after she was scheduled to leave)! Carla is extremely professional and affable, and made everything so simple and easy. We highly recommend working with her for whatever type of event you might have. She really can make anything happen!

Artist extraordinaire

OMG! I don’t even know where to begin. With less than a month to go, I was still on a search for someone to style my daughter’s hair for her wedding. An instagram search led me to Carla and her team. The reviews really don’t do her justice. We were sold after the consultation and on the day of the wedding she took exceptional care of me and my daughter. She stayed the entire day, facilitated a post ceremony hair change, did make up touch ups for more than just us after the hired make artist left and a bout of rain hit us during the ceremony. She calmed down an anxious mom, held my daughter’s dress as we walked to the ceremony start, and even touched up hair for the officiant (that darn rain !) Carla went above and beyond to ensure nothing messed up this day. Absolutely worth every Penny! It goes without saying that she will be our go to person this day forward for all hair and makeup needs. Thank you Carla!

Carla is THE best artist to have!

I’ve known Carla for 7 year and we’ve done mock bridal photo shoots in the past so when I got engaged she was the only person I thought of to be there for my special day. She even did my cousin’s wedding a few years ago. She made the whole process a breeze. Her team made my bridesmaids look beautiful and were so fun to talk to. From the trial to my big day, I felt so comfortable and beautiful. She even stayed longer when we had a delay to make sure I looked fresh in all my photos. She’s an absolute professional and if you are able to secure her or her team you will be in the best of hands. Book her and her team!!
