A Pivot Point–trained stylist with numerous hours of continuing-education courses, Carrie Thomas nimbly trims tresses and fashions strands into modern coiffures. Carrie lathers locks in a rich shampoo to rinse away dirt, excess oil, nesting barrettes, and tangled strands of phone cords acting as hair ties. Holstering her scissors, Carrie Thomas deftly drafts haircuts for men, women, and children to frame faces and match personal tastes before snipping manes into the desired shape. After cleansing and cutting curls, Carrie unfurls follicles under the warm breeze of a blow dryer and soothing strokes of a brush.
