Master Artist: Carol
Carol Wood is a Chicago based Hair & Make-up Artist with two decades of experience under her brush. Carol’s love for the beauty industry came early on, often getting in trouble for giving the kids in the neighborhood haircuts. Inspired by Versace ads and international magazines, Carol ambitiously enrolled in cosmetology school while still in high school. Behind the chair, she became the official hair stylist for the Jacksonville “Tomcat Kittens”. Carol’s tenacity landed her first TV job on the show “Club Access”. Gravitating back to the salon as a Redken platform artist and educator, Carol loved using her experiences to inspire others.
In 2007, Carol made the move to Chicago and has been working in the commercial advertising industry across the Midwest ever since. Her notable clients include; Nigel Barker, Kathy Bates, Jazmyn Simon, Isaac Hempstead Wright.
Carol’s success comes from her love of the craft and her ability to adapt quickly. As a fan of textures and colors, she carries a diverse range of products all hand picked to handle any skin tone and hair type. Carol prides her style as a collaborative nature. She loves to work as a team, to build just the right look for any special occasion.
