I'm Carina Ayiesha , holistic beauty specialist and founder of Carina's Studios, a private studio with a personal touch that affirms all of our guests to R.I.S.E. by creating an experience of:
I have been passionate about natural hair care, holistic beauty and customer care for over 19 years. In addition to being a wife for nearly 10 amazing and adventurous years and a mom of 3 vibrant children, I get to pursue my lifelong passion as a self defined Transmedia Artist.
As far back s I can remember, I was always at home when I got to do anything creative. Intersecting and balancing them has always been my greatest gift and greatest challenge, but this journey is my happy place. It's proven to be a useful asset in coming up with solutions for my client's beauty needs in and out of the studio and has helped me to be a part of creating some memorable events.
Although people come to my humble location for a great style, they stay for the heartfelt customer care, the intentionality of the products I choose and the hilarious and deep conversations that we have one on one, and amongst fellow patrons in the mood to build. Since I'll be spacing my clients so that no more than one is in the studio at a time, due to COVID-19, I know that this fellowship is the part that I'll miss the most. But we'll get through this.
I'm hoping that we can all play in the sunshine together again soon. Safety is and has always been our priority. So, when I do return, in addition to the measures I was previously taking, I will be implementing every Georgia State Board of Barbering & Cosmetology Sanitation & Safety measure recommended during the COVID-19 pandemic.... and then some. There were a lot of recommendations. However, because I cannot render your service and stay 6 feet away, I will be using stringent measures to keep all of us safe. I hope to see you soon!

2003 I won 2nd place in this California hair show but I was excited because my model Mrs. Johnson, was the only one with locs!
2005 I competed and won 1st Place. I performed poetry and did a tribute to Nannie Helen Boroughs in my set. Hair shows are fun because I get to be super creative! I'm seen here with Taliah Waajid, my teacher and natural hair pioneer and model (one of my besties) Sharon Moore.
Although I've performed as a belly dancer and poet extensively over the years and minored in dance at CSU Dominguez Hills, AFRICOPIA DANCE FITNESS was birthed out of a need to stay fit as a new mom while I was homeschooling my son. I naturally embrace a diaspora of music and my dance style fuses Carribean, Latin and North African styles. It's been an honor to share this side of my creativity with my clients at some of their special events.
I get a warm feeling all over, every time I remember this event. My friend and mentor Apryl Brown came all the way from Cali to support our event in Atlanta. Apryl hired me right out of cosmetology school when she had her salon. She ended up being our keynote speaker and blew everyone away with her testimony and story.
This was a dream come true. Gifts Of Abundant Living Symposium was catalyzed by a conversation with a client about the lack of Rite of Passage for our youth. I started writing down some ideas and sharing them with our village and G.O.A.L.S was born.
I've been a fan of this event curated and produced by Kemi Bennings and directed by Pastor Christy Robinson for years and had the opportunity to be featured doing poetry, singing back up and supporting in dance . I shared the stage with some incredibly talented women.
