I asked Carla, why she doesn’t make a record / profile of her clients color

She replied the following: My Salon is open from 2009, from that date I have all my clients combinations registered in my mind, I remember what I did, I can also see when a client goes to another Salon and doesn’t tell the truth about that. But just to make client feel great, I don`t mention it. I have over half million combinations recorded in my mind from my clients.


Carla, describe your best client.

My dream client is the one who says the magic words: Carla do what you think is best for my visual and personality, with that, I put my inner passion and my best, to deliver the results that: Makes my client smile with her eyes and heart, and that is priceless.  A gifted, passionate perfectionist.
Carla, how do you take a critic from a client or anyone? Carla replied: It is from negative critic that ‘A master becomes a genius`

Carla Horta proudly represents The Netherlands, in many countries as a speaker for sustainability and Self Confidence Strategy.  A humanitarian leader, she is equally passionate about volunteering. She has spent caring hours with the elderly having Alzheimer’s, raised money for children with cancer, and travels to India  and other countries often to teach hair and grooming skills to underprivileged boys and girls and provide them with a start-up toolkit to commence their own businesses.

Carla’s experience

For years I had my own salon in Portugal, and since then I have made a long trip around the world, working over 13 countries, working with different cultures, customs, beliefs and habits, but also with all imaginable hair types.

Regularly I am investing and updating my knowledge, visiting international hairdressing shows, conferences and I follow workshops on the latest technologies and developments in the hairdressing industry.

I was living in London and received an invitation to work in the Netherlands.
For the first few years I worked in various salons, including Rob Peetoom. I have worked in several salons with great pleasure. But I decided in 2009 to take the plunge and make my big dream come to reality: Open my own salon CarlaH Hairstudio.
