BOARD CERTIFIED COLOUR SPECIALIST/TRAINER
Caroline started her college career with a solid knowledge that learning the traditional way was not her way. Her mother, a client of Gerald’s, knew her daughter well and knew that she had always loved hair. She suggested Caroline apply for the Gerald’s Apprentice Program to “test the waters” and the rest is history. Caroline made the move toward the Colour Department quickly, as she felt that appealed to the artist within her, and has never looked back. Her colour style is modern, classic and beautiful, something she calls “easy to wear.” She likes to steer her clients toward what feels best to them and what makes them feel most comfortable, but also uses her colour skill and knowledge to lead them away from what may not work. She always asks what kind of a maintenance plan a client is ready for when making a color change – as she feels this can be the difference between loving your hair or being frustrated with it. She appreciates the education she receives at the salon and particularly loves balayage, which she feels has revolutionized the way colour is done – and the way it grows out.
Favorite thing about working at Gerald’s: “I love that we are always looking for the latest things going on in hair here so when something better comes along we will be there on that cutting edge.” She also appreciates that she has a team here who allows her to tap into their opinions and skill sets for a client, especially one who is making a big change. “We have something unique here,” she adds. “A group who genuinely likes and gets along outside of work, which is rare. It is a family here, not every man for himself – and I think that just makes a client’s time here even better.”
Fun fact: I challenge anyone to find me without a bottle of water in my hand or hand sanitizer in my purse.
