I always remember my high school yearbook entry saying; “I WILL become famous, be a successful glamour model & own my own business.” I never knew how I was going to do any of there things, I just KNEW I was going to make it.
As you can imagine, my entry lead to everyone looking at each other with raised eyebrows and the expected response of ‘yeah right’ was probably running through their heads at that pointâ€¦ but I am proud to say to them all now “Here I am! I did it!” I’ve become famous thanks to my glamour modelling and of course through Big Brother last year, and now I’ve finally ticked the final box after setting up my own business.
My business partner Julia Macmillan – who you might know as one of the gorgeous FHM models – and I both know the importance of looking and feeling great, so with our combined knowledge of both the modelling world and all things girlie, ‘MAK’ was born.
MAK incorporates our names, Macmillan and Karly, and specialises in 100% human remy hair extensions, Micro bonded and Micro Ring methods in order to give customers choice and the best possible product available to them! Our team are at home, mobile and we even have a room in the gorgeous West End of Glasgow!
The best of it is, MAK offers glue free extensions with undetectable bonds and we work in a personal, calming environment away from the hustle and bustle of a salon. Not only that, but we’re lucky enough to be in talks with a top Edinburgh boutique nightclub to offer exclusive sponsorship and will be holding open free consultations in Glasgow and Edinburgh soon so come along and say “Hello.”
At only 22, it makes me so proud to say I own my own business and its just so rewarding to make others happy and having hair extensions does wonders for self-confidence! We have had a lot of support and although it is challenging starting a business, the benefits are well worth it, that said I couldn’t have done it without my gorgeous business partner Julia, she is fabulous!
I am in such a happy place in my life right now with a new start, new boyfriend, new agent and new business! All negative and bad memories of last year have been erased and has been replaced with a positive future! It just goes to show if you really want something, and just KNOW that you can get it, you really can achieve anything.
