Originally from Canada, Carly trained and started her career as a red seal certified hairstylist. After 4 years she decided to take the next step in her career and moved to London,UK to hone her craft.  she worked in a central London salon for 5 years as a senior stylist and manager.  during her time in Europe she styled hair for both Paris and London fashion week and has been featured in black beauty magazine (2013), pride magazine (Nigeria issue) and pride magazine UK (2014).

Working inside and outside the salon has kept her at the forefront of the latest seasons trends and feeding her creative soul.  Moving to New York in 2014, Carly came with one goal in mind and that was to open a studio that would become a destination spot for her guests to come get their hair styled, feel pampered and leave with a sense of rejuvenation.  less then a year later, z(ed) became a reality.  When you see Carly you get the full experience from the minute you step in from the hustle and bustle to the minute you leave.  Carly’s style brings a unique blend of international chic and New York city vibe to each of her guests — transformed to everyday wear to suit each individual. At z(ed), Carly believes highly on continuing education for herself and her staff.

Along with working behind the chair,  Carly is an educator and TECH artist for Kerastase USA
