Carley Martin’s creative interests includes many genres of art, however music and beauty have been a passion since she was a child. Growing up in Kansas City, her singing and performance took her to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where Carley started her makeup career as a lead makeup artist for Sephora and Mac.

Carley shifted her focus and became a licensed cosmetologist to expand her hair-cutting, coloring and styling techniques. She has worked many seasons behind the curtains of NYFW and has been published in Maxim, Playboy, Sheridan Road, Chicago Magazine as well as multiple bridal publications. Today she is happily pursing hair and makeup artistry based out of the mid-west, and loves the opportunity to creatively collaborate on any project.

A versatile and creative artist, she is constantly inspired by music, film, food, fashion, and spending time at her 150 year old Kansas family farm.
