Carina did my and my bridesmaid’s hair for my wedding this last October and she did such an amazing job! My hair is very fine and doesn’t usually hold a curl and she made it look so full of body and it lasted all night long! I never would have even thought my hair could look as beautiful as it did on my wedding day. When I showed Carina what I wanted at my hair trial, I was honestly expecting her to tell me it wouldn’t really be possible with my hair but she went for it and she nailed it! I was beyond happy and I am still getting compliments on how good it looked. My bridesmaids were also so happy with their hair and one of them wants to book Carina for her own wedding next year. She is so talented and also such a nice person. You can tell she cares about her clients and really wants them to love the way they look. I seriously can not say enough good things about Carina and I would definitely recommend her for your hair styling needs, you will not be disappointed!

Where do I even start… I’ve known Carina for almost 10 years now. I met her on set where she was the hair stylist for a photoshoot that my husband was working. Through the years, I’ve followed her and seen her work for all different occasions - photo shoots, magazines, engagement/weddings, glam sessions, you name it. Carina does it all! Not only is she amazing in her work, she is so professional and so knowledgeable. She also goes above and beyond. I hired her for my own wedding in 2021! Carina did my hair for my engagement shoot and nailed it. I was obsessed with my hair. I got married in San Diego and Carina and her assistant went out the day before be in the area and also to set up in my Airbnb. She was ready to go at 5am the day of the wedding. My whole party was pleased with her work and her kindness and professionalism. I am so happy she was there on my special day. She is amazing in her work and will ensure that you are looking AMAZING for whatever your occasion is. Thank you for your talent and skills, Carina!
Carina was everything and more! She is professional, kind and talented! I felt so comfortable around her and she made me feel absolutely gorgeous. I have used her for my trial, rehearsal, save the date and wedding. She listens to you and even gives you suggestions on what would look best on you. Thank you Carina!
