CAROLYN NIZENKOFF

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 two daughters, and our wild pup. 

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.⁠

AMY GREEN

Hairstylist, Crafty Gal

 I'm Amy,  I specialize in dimensional color, and I love giving dream hair with hand-tied extensions.⁠

I am 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.⁠

While I won't be doing your hair you have likely seen my work before you even come in to the salon. I am responsible for a lot of our online presence, email communications, and a whole lot more!

I grew up in Idaho, and went to college in Georgia. My husband and I ended up here in California because of his job and we absolutely love it. My background is in event planning, and I love making things pretty and functional, which is perfect for my position here at the salon.

When I'm not working with the salon I am enjoying exploring the area with my husband, we love finding local hidden gems; or I'm going wine tasting with my girlfriends, it's hard to resist fun in the sun and good laughs.

I work part of my time from home clicking away on the computer creating a lot of the content you see from us online, the rest of the time I'm in the salon taking photos and videos. I love the time I get to spend in the salon watching our stylists create magic, and chatting with clients.
