MoTher of two 


Carrie was born to be a hairdresser and an owner of a salon. Growing up, her father owned and worked at his barbershop. Some of her best childhood memories were hours spent inside those walls. When she was just a young teen, she worked at a beauty salon and her passion for hair grew up. After high school, she attended Pivot Point Academy. Quickly, she took over cutting the family’s hair instead of her father (thank goodness for her mom and sisters!) working at salons and being a booked hairstylist. Today she has owned and operated Carolyn Lorraine Salon for over 25 years and her success is clearly in not only in her inherited skills and salon ownership, but her ability to make her staff and clients that come into her salon feel like family.
