Karla Mironov, Owner and Stylist

After being in the salon industry for over a decade, Karla Mironov founded Slope Suds Salon in Brooklyn, NY. Now, after almost 20 years in “the business” she’s opened a second location in Charleston, Karla Jean Studio. After perfecting the signature Sahag dry cut technique Karla continued pursuing advanced training directly under Nick Arrojo of TLC’s hit reality series What Not to Wear. While traveling between her two salons to serve her loyal following she became a certified Master Balayage Artist at the L’Oréal Professionel Academy in NYC in 2017.

Equipped with this extensive training Mironov brings a unique skill set to share with her team in weekly training sessions and daily with the guests they serve.


It’s about empowerment – My team and I have dedicated ourselves to building a community …in a way that brings creative diversity to Brooklyn and Charleston through cuts and culture.
