About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

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.

    Wonderful!!!

    Simply put- Carla and her team were absolutely amazing and I was thrilled with her process and the results! My bridesmaids all looked beautiful and my hair and makeup were just what I had envisioned, but better. As a COVID bride, I had a lot of plans that had to change, and one of those was finding a new hair stylist and makeup artist shortly before our rescheduled wedding. I could not be happier that those plans had to change. From the first contact with Carla, she and her team were responsive, efficient, personable and incredibly easy to work with. I was not able to due a trial, but the morning of my wedding, Carla worked with me and my inspiration photos I had sent her and talked me through the look I was going for before we started. There were a lot of small things to stress about the day of the wedding, but thanks to Carla, hair and makeup certainly were not one of those things. Everything was run smoothly, and the end results were fantastic!

    Carla Pressley's reply:

    WOW! Thank you, thank YOU Katarina!! I had such a blast and am smiling so big right now! So happy that you enjoyed the experience!

    Carla is the BEST!

    Carla is the best! I had a pretty diverse group of women so I needed someone who could work with a variety of hair textures as well as face structures and everyone including myself LOVED her work. She made me, my mothers and my bridesmaids feel 10/10. She is warm and personable as well so it was the best way to get ready for the big day!

    Carla is the BEST!

    Huge thank you to Carla for doing our hair & make-up for my wedding day! She was extremely easy to work with from the time of inquiry through our wedding day, and was always super responsive and attentive. Carla scheduled a virtual consultation since I was unable to do an in-person one. We chatted through what I envisioned for my look and she made recommendations based on my hair and skin types. She was extremely professional, but made the day fun and brought a great energy to getting us all ready! My mother-in-law specifically doesn't typically do make-up and was very pleased with her natural glam look.

    HUGE thank you to Carla for everything! You made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!
