Owner, Hairstylist, Educator
I'm Carolyn, owner of The Hair Studio, Corralitos. I specialize in hand-tied hair extensions and dimensional blondes.
I've been doing hair for 14 years and I opened the salon in 2015. At home I have my husband who is a Corralitos native, our 18 month old daughter, and our two wild pups. We are expecting our second daughter in May, and we can't even begin to imagine what life at home will look like after she is here.
I got into doing hair by accident. I didn't like the classes in college, and I didn't like the job I had (selling cellphones sucked in the early 2000's). So, I decided to enroll in cosmetology school because, it was a short program and sounded kinda fun. I had no idea I'd still be doing hair and loving my career 14 years later.
Since moving to Corralitos, I have fallen in love with community and small town vibe. Opening the salon made me want to really connect with the community beyond the client who walk through our doors. I joined the Corralitos Women's Club a few years back and just last year began volunteering with the Corralitos Valley Report.
I feel fortunate to live, work, and raise my babies in such a wonderful community.

I'm Amy the other (better? kidding!) half of The Hair Studio, Corralitos. I specialize in dimensional color, and I love giving dream hair with hand-tied extensions.
I an a San Juan Bautista native, but I got my start in hair while living in Utah. I began doing hair in 2009, and took a hiatus to raise my babies. I have two wild kids who are in elementary school, and are keeping me on my toes (you mamas know what I'm talking about🙄).
When I started working at The Hair Studio, Corralitos I was just getting back into hair and didn't really have a plan. Through my amazing clients I reignited my passion for my career and also found some amazing friends along the way.
Even though I don't live here in Corralitos I feel fortunate to spend my work days and some of my play days here with my clients and friends.
