My main goal in all I do is to empower my guests with confidence.


My passion for Weddings leads all that I do, but no matter what project I am working on, I will give it my all.


Welcome to my page.

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Carla, the woman behind Carla Pressley hair and makeup. I was born in Kentucky on a military base but spent time growing up in Korea. Traveling naturally became a second passion of mine aside from make up and hair styling. I decided to turn this passion into my career, which is why I am here. I began my career in the beauty industry over 10 years ago with PR @ Partners, a Washington D.C area franchise and MAC Cosmetics.  

My love for all things hair and make up led me to create my own business to share this with all of my clients. I am grateful for every opportunity this business has given me, and I want to work together to achieve your goal of feeling fabulous no matter what the occasion. I feel lucky to work with clients of all colors, cultures, hair types, and complexions. I have worked with a variety of people and even some high-profile clients such as Project Runway, Macy’s, and Martha Stewart Weddings amongst others. 

I pride myself in helping you feel confident from the inside out, and look forward to meeting you and helping you create the original, irresistible look for any occasion from the wedding aisle to the runway!
