Carline is a US Army Veteran. This Creole Queen has always been a fashionista. While serving in the military, she developed a passion for the hair and beauty industry.
As she was nearing the end of her military career, in 2013, she settled in her heart the desire to own her own salon. However, she did not just want the business, she also wanted to have the knowledge. Upon her exit out of the Army, in 2014, she enrolled into the Cosmetology program at the prestigious Paul Mitchell The School Miami where she greatly excelled.
Right after graduating from Paul Mitchell, she attended Florida College of Natural Health where she studied Paramedical Aesthetician. While attending skincare school, she worked as a Cosmetologist for Sheer Bliss Salon & Spa. Her preparation process, however, was missing a key thing and that’s what working at Salon Carole Flamant as a Front Desk Manager provided; to learn the management portion of the salon business. That experience coupled with her military leadership have set her up to now to become the person that GOD, through Carole, nominated as successor to this impeccable legacy.
The journey has not been easy, however. Carline had encountered many difficulties, ups, downs, covid-19, and many other things along the way. She had completely given up on the idea of owning her own salon. As she was in the process of getting a corporate job, GOD opened the door that she waited 8 long years for. Carline is grateful and takes this new position very seriously. She is fully dedicated to serving the wonderful clients and to serve alongside the amazingly talented staff.
