Carlin Taylor of Carlin's Cut-N-Up/ Carlin's World/ Hair Envy NJ passed away at the end of last week.
She was one of the industry's veterans. She held down 5 salons at one time. At the time of her passing she no longer had 5. Can you imagine how many jobs she provided for people. If you can't place her- pick up a hair magazine. This lady enlightened the lives of MANY professional's in the beauty industry including myself (Tomeka James).
I remember when I met her. I was in a hairshow . It was over and she as well as many others felt we should have won the competition. Well she approached me and said " I loved your performance, I think you deserved to win but that's over now. Would you like to get your crew together and perform the same skit at my show in 2 weeks?" I said yes.
Well after the show we had a chance to sit down and talk. We discussed how I was looking for a place to move my business. She once again had astounding words " I know the perfect people who can help you- you want their #?"
I said yes again.
This was the start of a beautiful 1200 sq ft. salon. This was the place where I truly jump started trainings and connecting with other salon's on many levels.
She always told me how proud she was of me.
I last spoke with her a little over a month ago when she asked me" You need any help at your EXPO?"
THANK YOU CARLIN.....YOU ARE TRULY MISSED !!!!!!!!!!! and to your family-"Stay strong and we will keep you in our prayers"
