Carie Peters’ passion for creativity led her to become a professional hairstylist at the age of seventeen in Omaha, Nebraska. A few years later, she was already building a clientele in the heart of Beverly Hills as a hair color expert and Great Lengths extension specialist. Since 2005, Carie has performed numerous makeovers for various television shows and celebrity clients. In 2010, she made the move to the famous Ken Paves Salon in West Hollywood, and later expanded her clientele to Laguna Beach and San Diego, California. She loves the challenge of a drastic makeover and is a strong advocate of using the most innovative, conditioning hair colors and glosses. By combining her artistic skills with her knowledge of chemistry, Carie is able to create vibrant and natural looking colors, while preserving the hair’s integrity.
Carie’s methods make any color look like it could be a client’s natural hair color. She specializes in a highlighting technique called Balayage, which allows her to paint the most flattering highlights or add dimension to make the color come alive and emphasize the particular style. Whether it be sun-kissed highlights or bright bold streaks, Carie paints the color to compliment the client’s skin color, hair style, and lifestyle. She is also renowned for Great Lengths custom-blended extensions, which can add length or thickness, as well as soft, long-layered haircuts and blowouts that can last for days. Since makeup has always been a passion and Carie found herself always helping others with makeup, she decided to start booking clients for makeup again in 2016.
Her friendly personality and attention to detail has kept her clients coming back. After Carie and her husband fell in love with the city of McMinnville in Oregon, they made the move to wine country in 2016. Now, Carie has joined Mya’s Salon to make every client look and feel their absolute best.
