Meet Carmen Elias

Our Founder Carmen has a passion for trichology and has shared her passion since her arrival at Caralyn’s Hair and Wig Design in 2015. Beginning her career as an esthetician in the early 2000’s; client satisfaction, discretion and care have always been at the forefront of Carmen’s work. This also meant she was no stranger to problem solving, skin conditions and vulnerablility. After working with Caralyn, a founding member of Capilia Group, one of Canada’s leading scalp health collectives, Carmen knew she wanted to absorb as much knowledge as possible to provide the best treatments and care for those suffering from hair loss and scalp diseases.

In 2019 Carmen began her course with the International Association of Trichologists (IAT), a non-profit corporation, developed by the University of Southern California, with the goal of promoting the research, study and practice of the treatment and care of the human hair and scalp disorders. Carmen realized it was her goal to provide the best and most up to date treatments, products and services to her clients and to spread her knowledge to those who may need it. 

Hair care guidance and expertise

Carmen is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful, and gave me hope that something could be done to treat my conditions. Her treatment course was successful in making my hair grow back in most of the areas that were affected, which is now thick, curly and beautiful.  I am now being treated for the areas with scar tissue that I had been told would never regrow hair. There is definite progress in this area as well, as I continue the treatment at this time.  Her care and expertise in helping me with my hair and scalp is exceptional. I would not hesitate in recommending Carmen to anyone experiencing hair loss.

Looking in the mirror

Firstly thank you ever so much for your guidance and equipping me to go down south, it’s due to you that my hair has grown so well. I truly appreciate it. I must say I’ve never had a style that’s so easy to look after. All my friends think the new me looks good. I look in the mirror and wonder who I’m looking at sometimes! Many many thanks for your ongoing help.

Extremely pleased with results

I first contacted Carmen a few years ago, regarding my thinning hair and extremely itchy scalp. After several visits, I experienced a tremendous amount of improvement, my dry flaky scalp was gone, which promoted my hair to regain its strength and improved hair growth. Carmens knowledge is second only to her genuine concern for her clients. I’m extremely pleased with my continued success and I definitely recommend a consultation for anyone with similar concerns.
