The artistic style of Carl Ray’s Way is rooted in enhancing a woman’s natural beauty. Carl enjoys getting to know each individual woman so he can bring out her own personality. He prides himself on complimenting individual beauty, and his range of techniques allows him to deliver a natural glam, polished, clean, fresh, and beautiful look. At the Women United Signature Event, Carl will give us tips on how to bring out our inner beauty and share his inspirational story of how, beginning at age 14, he gave his mother the confidence she needed to tackle some of life’s challenges.

Sierra Black will join us LIVE. No one makes country music quite like singer/songwriter Sierra Black, and that’s because the brave young vocalist is carving out her own path to create music that is inspiring and irresistible. The Las Vegas native built her career in her hometown, sharing the stage with Keith Urban and even performing an impromptu duet with Garth Brooks, before taking her talents to Nashville, where she now works with producer Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts).

Mercedes Martinez, host of “Mercedes in the Morning” on KMXB/ Mix 94.1 and “Las Vegas NOW!” on KLAS-TV Channel 8 will be joining us again as our host! Born and raised in Colorado, she has been in Las Vegas since 1997 where she began waking up the city on Mix 94.1. She has been hosting “Las Vegas Now” on KLAS since the show debuted in 2017.
