Executive leadership in sales, beauty, trends, and wellness in the prestige marketplace

Together we can do more

I’ve been immersed in executive leadership, sales and training positions for over 20 years. My entire life has been dedicated to various contributions in the beauty world. Over the course of my career, I have transformed my passion for cosmetics into partnering and distributing innovative first-to-market German makeup brands into the USA and Caribbean islands.

Reality recently gave me a dream I'm living; working for & with a wonderful African woman named Nadia Ali while entering my 40th year of being in the magical industry of hairdressing. It feels like I've reached the zenith of my career in it while working with this passionate Rise Hair Team Nadia has created. I'm grateful for this glorious space I can welcome from & attend to the clients I enjoy taking care of from so many walks of life. If you are one of them, thank-you & if you would like to try my skills out as a new client, welcome.

I have been working as a hair stylist for 20 years. I specialize in cuts and colours, keratin treatments and styling for special occasions (wedding up-dos, etc.). I love to create and this leads me to create unique hair styles that have placed quite well in several competitions I have participated in. Most notably, placing me as a top 7 finalist in Wella Trendvision 2014. Not limited to only hair, I have participated in various other fashion related activities, such as a fashion show with Frank Sukhoo in support of the Cornerstone charity event, and the Bell Wedding Show. I have a desire for knowledge, and consistently seek ways to improve myself and my skills.

Hi, it’s Kara the hair artist, what’s your favourite colour!?

I’m passionate about the 4 B’s. Specializing in  Blonde, brunette, balayage and bridal. Although I do love to get creative with rainbow hairstyles too!

Through my 15+ year career I have been fortunate enough to inspire other stylist through education. Teaching as a salon educator, an instructor at Marvel Beauty Academy, as an ICON genius and most recently as a GOLD.KEY for COLOR.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY.

I love my clients and my craft! Hair is more than just a job to me.

Outside the salon, I am into health and wellness, yoga, kickboxing, and exploring what our fair city has to offer, finding hidden gems off the beaten path.

Currently I’m working as a guest artist at Rise Hair and my availability is limited to Saturdays. Taking new clients by referral only. Find my work @klgarlandhair on Instagram! :D

See you soon!

Hello! I have loved hair for as long as I can remember. Recreationally braiding barbies and snipping my cat Max's fur by the age of 2. Professionally I’ve been a dedicated hairstylist for 10 years. I love the fact that every day is creative, fun and occasionally challenging. Keeping up with the ever changing trends, I take pride in being a part of a team with so much diversity and talent. My journey has lead me to specialize in bridal hair, styling and blondes. I’m grateful for being in a career that allows me to be who I am and gives me the pleasure of meeting so many amazing people!

Versatility is what I am all about. Working with a variety of different styles, and needs, whether you're looking for change, or just enhancing what you have, I will give you what you're looking for in a way that suits your lifestyle.

Nadia is a colorist and the founder and owner of Rise Hair Team.
