Carla Lee, Key West


Hairdresser at ‘Headlines’ on Duval Square
“I had always wanted to come to Key West because I have always been passionate about the water. I was working in West Palm Beach for the longest time and a lot of my clients were coming down for Fantasy Fest and what have you. There is always something going on down here.
I told my husband I wanted to go to the Keys and I wanted to go now. We came down and it turned into a 3-day expedition. I said ‘They have pink houses and people are wearing tutu’s, and people are body painted. I want to move here; I have to be here; my eccentricities would be so accepted here.’ I think I’m a gypsy as it is. I fit in here, and I blend in like a chameleon. Anywhere else you go people think your nuts, but people here are understanding, want to get in. Once you start opening up, others open up too and realize they are not crazy, they are unique, we are all unique.
I became a better hairdresser here, I sharpened up my skills. I found true friends here.
My husband and I didn’t make it; he went off the deep end with the drinking and the alcohol just carried him away. He got Keys disease really bad.
I have the gift of intuition, of vibes; I have a crystal ball in my house. Every year that passes that I get older and wiser I get more and more of those gifts.
I am on my way. Next year I am going to enter the Queen Mother Pageant, it’s the day after Mother’s Day. I think they need a real woman to enter the competition, so here I go. Nothing is stopping me now!
I am looking forward to Fantasy Fest this year. I am looking forward to a great season. I am looking forward to the Queen Mother Pageant. I feel, since I got here, that there is nowhere to go but up!! Great people and blessings are just coming in and out of my life like waiters go through doors in a restaurant kitchen!
It’s all about positivity, good energy, and staying healthy. I feel like I can make a difference in other’s days, even if it’s just a word or two.”
