Karla has been involved in the beauty industry in some fashion since 1985 either as a stylist or nail technician. In the mid 1980's, she was part of the team that provided hair and make-up to the Channel 6 Evening News Anchors. Enjoing the ever-evolving field of hair extensions, she opened her own salon, perfetlook, in Chandler, AZ in 2010. Moving to Bartlesville in 2015, she realized a few years later how much she missed the social interaction of a beauty salon. So, she became a student once again, and earned her certification as a Donna Bella hair Extension Specialist. She continues to research methods, and offers her services in collaboration with 9one8 Beauty Salon and Spa team.
