CARLA GRANT

Owner & Stylist

Master Goldwell Colorist

Five words that describe you: Ambitious, generous, determined, creative, humble


What inspires you:  I find inspiration from other successful business owners and professionals. Since I started my career, I have always worked very hard to give 110% in my work and home life while finding the right balance between both. Watching others succeed in their careers pushes me to step outside my comfort zone and strive for happiness and success together!

What is your favorite part of your career? This is a tough one because there are so many amazing pieces of what I do daily. I would have to say the two that come to mind first are the relationships I’ve built with all of my clients and continue to build. They all hold a special place with me. Making them feel good about themselves is so important to me. Second, I will guide and teach the members of my team here at Mia Bella Salon how to build an amazing career while having fun doing it! They are all extremely hard-working, talented professionals, and I am so lucky to have them working beside me!

The biggest moment in your career:  This is another tough one, as I have had many along the way. But at this point, the biggest would have to be purchasing our new salon home at 99 Park Street in Rockland and making that into my “dream” salon. I won’t say it’s all been easy or fun, but I can say, without a doubt, that each morning, when I step foot into the salon, I feel a huge sense of overwhelming happiness and accomplishment, and I am so thankful for where I am today. Hard work and determination truly pay off!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Anything that involves spending time with my family and friends, traveling, watching my daughter Madison play softball, camping, working on our house, playing in my flower gardens, reading, making jewelry, working out, shopping, playing with my dog Dexter and cat Charlie.

I am forever grateful that my job allows me to make a client’s internal beauty shine through on the outside.  To me, there is no better feeling in the world than having a client walk out the door with a smile on their face. Only then do I feel I have done my job properly and made a positive difference in their day?

The biggest moment in your career: Discovering the talented educators at the TIGI New York Academy. I love furthering my education. Expanding my talent and mind is something I can never get enough of. This academy continues to exceed my expectations and keeps me on my toes, constantly allowing me to better myself and my skills.
