Karola Style Inc.

Karola Dirnberger, Hairstylist

Karola travels around the world styling hair in the entertainment industry. Her impressive resumé is full of films, TV series, and magazines, including The Handmaid’s Tale, Spotlight, and GQ Italia. Nominated twice for best hair at the Canadian Screen Awards, she won in 2014.

“I’ve owned and operated two salons and for me, it’s always been about understanding what the customer wants, understanding what their deepest desire is and what they’re afraid to talk about. I think that’s the difference between how I approach things,” she says. When she’s designing hair, Karola takes in all the different visions for the character—from the director, the actress, and the studio—and translates that onto the hair.

Through her business, Film Hair Academy, Karola trains apprentices and offers classes. She tries to pass excitement on to her students and the desire to be the best at what they do. “If you don’t have that desire, then you’re always going to work. And I’ve never worked a day in my life because I play at it.”
