Meet the talented people behind Caralyn's chairs

Caralyn | President, Hair Stylist, and Wig Specialist

Caralyn’s passion for the industry and her clients is forever growing. With 40+ years of experience and work around the world including Paris and London, Caralyn has carved herself a special corner of the industry combining the craftsmanship and precision of hair styling with the personability and sensitivity of a wig specialist. 

Caralyn burst into the industry while still in high school, working as a shampoo girl at one of the first haute couture salons out of London, working her way up through the ranks, eventually moving to Canada for a bright new start. After working at salons in the local Ottawa area for a few years Caralyn took the dive to open up Caralyn’s Hair and Wig Design which was formerly known as Capilia by Caralyn’s, a salon where those who suffered from hair loss and scalp problems didn’t have to go into a clinical space to have their hair done, they could enjoy the bustling atmosphere of a salon as anyone would. Caralyn went on to educate many around Canada on the intricacies of wig and hairpiece maintenance and spread her knowledge to anyone who would listen. She has also mentored many aspiring hair stylists, many of whom have gone on to open their own salons. 

Caralyn continues to provide the best service to all of her clients, with a focus on those who have hair loss due to medical treatment.
