Meet the Business Community

Carley is a dedicated mother of two, and a successful business owner. After graduating from the Interior Academy of Hair Design in Kamloops, Carley made the journey to Tumbler Ridge where she planned on making money to travel. Little did she know at the time that her life was going to change in a different direction!

Upon arriving in town, Carley found a job as a stylist in a local hair salon. Her urge to succeed gave her the initiative to achieve the goal of owning her own salon. After living here for only a few years, Carley opened Tangles.

Over the course of six months she met Ken, a local resident, and they are still together to this day. Ken works at the Community Centre. They have two children, Logan 2, and Landon 91/2 months. The birth of her children is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to her. She says that her ability to keep working is thanks to the support that she receives from Ken?s parents, Loyal ?Red? and Kathleen Maceachern.

Her favourite thing about her job is the variety of people she gets to meet, and the different kinds of styles she gets to give people. Carley says ?Cuts are the most fun because you get to transform the hair and the look of customers?. Her advice to working moms is to have a hairstyle that is easy to maintain, so they can spend more time with their children.

Carley is active within the community; she participates in wallyball and curling. Her favourite thing about Tumbler Ridge is the availability and closeness of all the amenities. Her love of shopping makes her wish for more of a variety of merchandise in the downtown businesses. The future for Tangles includes expansion of products, and more employees. Carley would like to see at least one other stylist added to the team.
