CLD Handcrafted Hair, formally Vanity Hair Studio, was founded in 2006. Vanity began in a charming, eclectic 1930’s house on the 101 in Solana Beach. For (5 years), our team provided a vibe of being pampered in a home setting and friendly environment. Over time the girls outgrew the little casa and moved to a plush, modern loft located in the Design District of Cedros. After 5 years, there was a need to get back to the roots of a cozy studio. CLD Handcrafted Hair was created. The same talented team of stylists after 10 years, relocated to the quaint town of Leucadia. A place to unwind, relax, and enjoy all the comforts of a serene get away, while simultaneously being transformed into a new beautiful version of yourself.
Carrie Kargman began doing hair in the film industry working on television and movie productions. While on hiatus from film work, she began working at a salon in Solana Beach. Being behind the chair sparked a whole new love for her career. She has worked in different salons over the past 19 years, and has taken numerous classes to further her career. Carrie has come to learn that the best education you can receive is learning from the stylists and clients around you. She specializes in coloring with current highlighting techniques, textured haircuts, and loves finishing work.
After Carrie’s first child and pregnant with her second, her dad sat her down and told her it was time to progress in her career by opening her own salon. And so, Vanity Hair Studio was born. She has enjoyed every moment of being a salon owner, simply because she loves what she does and the people she does it with. There has never been a day in her career that she has not been excited to come to work. She has worked with the same group of girls since she opened in 2006, with the addition of a couple new family members. She is humbled and proud of what they have all created together and is even more excited to begin this new journey with everyone at CLD Handcrafted Hair.
