Take a step in my world for just a second! But first coffee! I mean how do you not start your day by waking up early, finding that lovely coffee shop and getting your day started because you know life is too short to sleep the day away. The harder you work the closer you are to success – at least that is my mantra!

My name is Carly Walters and I am from Boise, Idaho. Boise, Idaho? Yes, potatoes and winter. A girl with big dreams and a Boho-Chic fishtail braid, living in Idaho… yeah that wasn't going to last for long. Once I graduated High School I took off to the Golden State. I went to college in San Diego playing soccer, which then landed a scholarship to play at California Baptist University in Riverside, CA.

Although I graduated with my Bachelors in Marketing, I felt as though my dreams still weren't being attained. I wanted more, wanted to feel the world, feel people, feel like I was a part of something bigger. I have always had a passion for hair creation and dreamt of the days my life would be spent on photo shoots and traveling the world. With that desire and being pushed by friends and family I took a risk and went back to school, but this time was different. I attended Vidal Sassoon Academy and shortly obtained my Cosmetology License.

After I finished hair school all those feelings I had once wished to acquire finally started to become a reality. Inspiration flooded my veins and motivation filled my soul. Oh yeah, this is it. Right out of Sassoon I started assisting and taking clients at the Ken Paves Salon in Beverly Hills. Just after a year there, I then took a once in a lifetime opportunity to assist Jen Atkin where I currently work and continue to build upon those early dreams of mine.
