Betty of the Week, Karen Calderon

Our Betty of the Week is Karen Calderon! Karen started at our 38th St flagship front desk in May of 2019. After attending college for music education, she discovered a true passion for beauty and makeup and began looking into becoming a freelance makeup artist. This is when her career in the beauty industry took flight!

Thank you!

Karen is one of the first faces you see when you walk into our salon, and her beaming smile and positive energy truly light up Urban Betty, as a salon home and a brand.

Karen moved to Austin with her fiancé in January of 2019. She loves animals, hiking, reading books (especially the true crime and serial killer kind), watching scary movies, classical music, and exploring the city with her fiancé and two dogs, Toffee and Luna.


A Note From Chelle

"Now you know why she is my Betty of the Week? Animals, music, serial killers, AND scary movies! We are soul mates. But seriously, she is super cool. Be sure to say hi to her next time you stop by! You'll see we recreated a horror scene in one of our photos. I mean who doesn't want to lock their boss in a safe and walk away?" - Chelle Neff, Founder
