Formerly at filament hair salon. I'm passionate about curly hair. My goal is to empower men/women to embrace their curls. I'm dedicated to educating clients to learn a healthy regime that makes their curls flourish. Giving you a cut that frames your face shape and personality.
I’m grateful to have discovered Candace. She was thorough and patient and transformed my disastrous self-cut. I look forward to seeing how it grows out and will surely return in a few months.
My haircut experience with Candace was beyond my greatest expectations. Like most girls with curly hair, especially as long and thick as mine, I was a little nervous, but Candace was so personable and knowledgeable, I felt very confident once I sat down. She really took her time and listened to me, then explained what she was going to do and why. It turned out even better than imagined. Healthy, bouncy, exactly what I wanted and, essentially, needed.I will definitely be returning when it’s time for some maintenance.
When I first came to Candace, I had never had a Devacut and based on some of the pricing I had seen online for one, I thought that I wouldn't be able to afford one until I'd hit a few more milestones in my career. Thankfully, the lovely internet led me to Candace who I found had so many amazing reviews online. I gave it a try and she was amazing! This was my first wash and go experience. Candace is extremely professional and produces IMMEDIATE RESULTS! Each time I have sat in her chair for a cut I have seen the weight lifted off of the shoulders of my curls as she effectively gave my dead ends the boot that they've always needed. So many other stylists before had insisted that my hair be straightened before they could provide a proper hair cut. Other stylists would be really rough on my hair just to detangle it. I was stunned when Candace took the time to finger detangle my precious curls that I've worked so hard for. The care she takes really makes a difference. Overall, Candace is the best stylist I've EVER had for natural hair and oh it has been a lonnnng ride! If you're wavering on who to choose as your new stylist - choose Candice! You won't regret it. Also hurry because her appt spots fill up fast :)
This was my first Devacut and I cannot stress how thankful I am for Candace. She really listened to what I was looking for and adviced me on what would be best to care for my curls and provide it the health, definition, and style that it needs. At first I was a bit nervous because I Candace informed me that my ends were damaged and a lot needed to be cut. However, I learned a lot from the visit and it was great because it was really affordable compared to other stylists. I left the salon with much bouncier curls and received compliments all around the streets of NYC. I’m really excited for my curls as they continue growing and am eager for my next visit. Book your appointment with Candace today!
Candace is an amazing curly girl or guy stylist. Having my haircut was a scary experience until I found Candace an amazing stylist and person.
Candace was amazing! I walked in and she asked me what I wanted. I responded that I was looking for a miracle. That's exactly what she did! My hair has never looked healthier. I thought I was going to have to do the big chop and thankfully she cut enough where it wasn't the case. I am very pleased and will definitely go back for my next trim. Love my bouncy curls.
Candace is my go-to stylist. She's been cutting my curly hair since December 2016. I trust her. Every cut I've had with her has left my hair healthy and in a beautiful shape! She's sweet, understanding, and easy to talk to. Definitely, recommend!
Candace SLAYED my hair last week. Gave me a perfect devacut ans educated me on how to do a proper wash and go. I just did my own today and my curls are POPPIN’. I’ll def be visiting her again!
Candace is precise, communicative, punctual, attentive, and is a master at what she does. I feel at ease as soon as I step in the door, and like my best wavy/curly self leaving (for 2 years and counting).
Candace is wonderful! I've never had to wait more than 10mins for my appointment. Love it! Not only is she great at keeping time she is friendly and very knowledgeable about hair. I love that she listens to my hair concerns and then explains why you shouldn't always do what you see on YouTube. :) Also, I really like that Candace is not a super chatty stylist. She lets you control the amount of conversation you have during the appointment. The conversation never feels forced. Highly recommend Candace!
I just got my big chop today and it was terrifying, but Candace was so knowledgable that she made the experience exciting. Before cutting my hair she showed me some pictures of what I should expect, which was great. The best part was that she showed me how to properly style my hair. It hasn't even been a day and I have already gotten so many compliments. I am excited to see where my hair will go from here.
I had my first Devacut experience this week with Candace and my curls look absolutely amazing! The minute I met Candace I knew I was in great hands. She is incredibly kind and a great conversationalist. I felt super comfortable throughout my visit. Candace eased any worries I had by answering all my questions and providing suggestions on how to take better care of my hair. I left feeling ecstatic about my entire experience. I’m looking forward to seeing Candace again for my next haircut!
Today I had my first curly cut with Candace. From the moment I arrived, I felt comfortable and attended to. Candace is so sweet and soft-spoken, she puts you at ease right away. I got much more than I expected in terms of my experience. She really educated me and set realistic expectations after I shared a photo of what my curly goals were. Candace even gave me a hand mirror while she was washing and conditioning my hair so that I could see and replicate what she was doing. The end result was beautiful! My hair is on its way to recovery and I'm delighted to be on this journey with the help of Candace. I left with silky, smooth curls. I look forward to my next appointment with Candace. If you are looking for someone who listens to you and is excited about helping you reach a realistic curly hair goal, make sure you go to Candace. You won't be sorry :-)
I had my first dry cut with Candace this afternoon and my hair feels so, so much healthier and happier. I even have cute little ringlets all over the bottom layer of my hair (which used to be more straight than anything!!!!) It's more towards the end of the day now and my hair is still defined but with even more volume than this afternoon/than I expected! Overall, she's a great stylist, very informative and SUPER nice. I'm really excited to embrace my hair now and can't wait to see her again!
I have curly hair and I've been going to Candace for a year and a half now to get it cut. Candace is a talented and insightful stylist who never fails to give me the cut I was hoping for. She is kind and soft-spoken, with a calm presence that makes you feel at home and comfortable in her chair. I highly recommend her.
Candace is a talented and intuitive stylist. I've been going to her for a year and a half now and she always gives me the cut I was picturing in my head. She is kind, soft-spoken and not overly chatty, which makes me feel comfortable during my cut.
After a not so great experience with my first DevaCut I found Candace. She was thorough, kind and honest about what can and can not be done with my hair. She answered all my questions and was just overall a joy to talk to. The cut and style she did on my hair left me in awe! My 2b-2c waves were simply beautiful! And since seeing Candace and following her advice, my waves are blossoming! For the first time since I started my curly girl journey I can see my waves turn into the curls that I could have!
I have been getting the Devacut for many years now and this is the first time I have walked out of the salon and been absolutely thrilled about my hair! Candace was so amazing! I showed her a picture of about how short I wanted my hair and she not only worked with the picture, but after cutting a bit in the back, she showed me the length and asked what I thought. To me that just proves she really cares about what her customers want and are looking for. Along with that, this was the first time I got pintura highlights and knowing that and knowing I was nervous about this big change I was making with my hair color, Candace helped me pick a color that would be subtle enough so I could gradually get used to this change. Also, when it was time to style my hair, I explained the devacurl products I had been using and she gave me suggestions on which ones would work better and why. Candace really is an awesome stylist and I highly highly recommender her! I can not wait for my next appointment in a couple months!
I've had my hair colored and cut by Candace several times. Each time she has given me advice on how to care for my curls. My hair has never looked better! She really listens to me and I feel totally confident I will walk out the salon each time looking great. Looking forward to my next appointment!
She is the hero of my curly hair and will always be! Thank you for your amazing work and personality:) xo
It was my first time ever getting a curly haircut and Candace did not disappoint despite my hair being a choppy mess. She listened to what I wanted and also gave recommendations on products and tips on how to take better care of my hair. It was well worth the trip to the city. I'll be seeing her again in 3 months.
I had my first dry cut ever with Candace a few weeks ago, and I'm loving my cut. Candace was very thorough in her consult and listened carefully to me as I described my hair care history/routine and what I'm looking for.I have thick, coarse, wavy hair and felt really well cared for as she cut, washed, and styled. I love that she embraced the idiosyncracies of my hair and worked with them, instead of against them.I look forward to going back to Candace in a few months!
