Our Team

Meet the talented people behind the chair.

Caralyn

Caralyn has been a professional stylist since 2003, she loves the feeling when she helps her clients feel attractive and confident.

“Over the years, I’ve explored many techniques and trends, but everyone is different, so every hairstyle needs to reflect that individuality.

“One thing I’ve learned is that a simple change can make a huge difference in how people feel about themselves. Thatʼs one reason I especially love doing colour—it is such a simple but effective way to introduce an entirely new look.”

Her words for a new client? “I look forward to creating a new style or look that you love as much as I love joining you on the adventure!”

Jenn

With well over a decade in the beauty industry, Jenn’s passion for hair and education continues to drive her to deliver the best for each person she meets.

From her days educating, attending local and international shows and working backstage at New York and Paris Fashion weeks with UNITE’s creative hair team, Jenn has an abundance of inspiration to draw on.

When she’s not in the salon, you can find her riding and training her young horse and enjoying cuddles from her german shepherd Ozzy.

Jaymi

Jaymi is originally from Bancroft ON, known for being the mineral capital of Canada.  Now, she has the pleasure of calling Ottawa her home for the past 8 years.  Jaymi attended Algonquin College’s Hairstylist program and has been with Caralyn’s for her entire career thus far.  With the hair industry always changing, it requires constant growth and learning, both of which Jaymi has been able to do through Caralyn’s Salon.  She loves working with clients from all walks of life to create new, fun, and exciting looks tailored uniquely to them.  Nothing makes her happier than seeing her clients smile while they admire their new look.  

When Jaymi is not at the salon, you will find her spending time with her dog Magic, or outside soaking up the sunshine.

Carmen

Carmen joined Caralyn’s Hair team in 2015 where her passion for hair loss and scalp diseases started.  In 2019, she began her trichology certification at the world renowned and recognized by leading dermatologists in hair research, IAT (International Association of Trichologists)

Carmen is always researching new and effective products and latest treatments to better help her clients and that lead to her collaboration with Rene Furterer, a division of Pierre Fabre laboratories in France.

She works closely with both doctors and naturopathic doctors.  It can be overwhelming for new clients taking in all the new information and as a qualified scalp specialist, Carmen provides additional support to her clients by clarifying any further questions they may have after their consult, detailing complimentary options available.  Her approach is all about making her clients feel safe and supported.

Her goal is to unite dermatologists, trichologists, and hairdressers to truly make a difference to everyone’s lives who are suffering from hair and scalp conditions.

Jasmine

Jasmine is a hairstylist who combines education and creativity and uses that as a catalyst to create one of a kind hair for each and every unique client she sees.  

Jasmine graduated from Algonquin College’s Hairstyling program and has continued her passion for education in our industry by completing additional training through Vidal Sassoon online as well as the salon brands, ColorWow, UNITE, and Schwarzkopf.
