Meet the Rising Hairstylist on Her Way to NYFW

At Byrdie, we spend countless hours combing social media, interviewing experts, and meeting with brands to get the inside scoop on new launches and products. And we pride ourselves on being the first in discovering rising talent. We love exposing you to people doing big things in the beauty world—everyone from models and hairstylists to makeup artists—and introducing you to them before anyone else. Over the last few months, we've had our eyes trained on one particular rising star in the hair industry—someone who's making waves (pun definitely intended): Los Angeles-based hairstylist Carly Walters.

We're banking on Walters becoming the next big name in hair you need to know, so to help accelerate her rise to the top, we're partnering with TRESemmé to send her to work her first ever show at New York Fashion Week. Cue the squeals. 

We can't overstate what a big deal this is, so to arm her with everything she needs to know on her Road to #TRESNYFW, we're introducing Walters to four of the brand's biggest stylists who've been in the business for years. They've worked shows from Miami Swim Week to New York Fashion Week, they own salons, they create all the red-carpet looks—suffice to say, they have more than a few tricks and tips to share up their sleeves.

Over the coming weeks, each featured TRESemmé stylist will get a chance to collaborate with Carly and create a hairstyle using their favorite TRESemmé products. They'll offer up their styling expertise, as well as advice for making it through such a high-energy work environment while backstage at NYFW. It’ll be quite the journey, and we’re so excited to take you along for the ride. But before we officially get on the road, let’s introduce you to our stylists…
