Carissa Smith, our newest stylist, is excited to start her cosmetology career at Chateau de Chic. In just a few days, she’s already feeling the love at the salon. “I love that the girls here are so helpful and want everyone to succeed.” She’s right, we too couldn’t be more excited to have her on our team and to watch her grow! 

Since childhood, Carissa has been interested in doing hair. After attending RCTC for a year and working at Mayo, she decided it was time to do what she loved. She enrolled in and graduated from NOVA Academy with her Cosmetology License.

When Carissa is not doing hair, you can find her playing with her 5 month old German Shorthair puppy, hanging out with her friends, going to concerts, spending time with her sassy twin nieces and relaxing on the water in her kayak.

FAVORITE PRODUCT: “I LOVE the Moroccanoil Perfect Defense Spray because it’s suitable for all hair types. Everyone needs a good heat protectant!”

HAIR INFLUENCER: Lexie Rainbolt because she's just a couple years out of beauty school and has a very successful cosmetology business already.

MY TIP FOR YOU: “Using dry shampoo on wash day can actually maximize the longevity of a style between washes.”
