Candice is absolutely incredible. I’ve been caring for my hair for years with deva curl products, and thought I had the routine down, but she completely blew my mind in showing me how to care for my hair. She also cut it in the most flattering way. I am so comfortable wearing my hair big and out now and I am so grateful to Candice for giving me this gorgeous haircut, so I can wear my curls with confidence. Highly highly recommend.

This was my second Devacut experience with Candace, and I am just as happy with my results as I was the first time (x100). She truly saved my curls after I unfortunately decided to cut my hair on my own. Candace gave me the shape and volume I had been trying to achieve for months, and I couldn't be happier.

Candace always makes my hair look amazing, and brings out curls I didn't know I had! She takes the time to help me understand what my hair needs and how to achieve my hair goals. Candace is amazing and I will always recommend her to my curly friends!!

Full disclosure I was told by Candace during my consultation she does not style hair. With that being said I have coily hair, and after I received my “Devacut” along with a wash and little leave in conditioner I was told how much the cut was and bye bye. I would have paid extra for some sort of product to put in my hair. Again I was told she was not a stylist, but how about telling us bring your own products and style your own hair. No I didn’t like the “Devacut” nor did I like the total experience. I’m unable to give zero stars, and that’s why you see one star as my rating.

AMAZING!!!!

First and foremost, I can't help but say that candace is truly an amazing individual with such a gifted talent! I went in yesterday a bit anxious because I've had my curly hair disasters at salons, pretending to love what the end result was... but actually wanting to curl up in a ball and cry! But this experience was the complete opposite!! She listened carefully as to what I had in mind in regards to my cut/the desired length I wanted to maintain, and also the color that I had in mind. After showing her reference pictures of the look I wanted, she gave me her input from her assessment of my hair as well and told me what would be best for my hair in regards to color so it wouldn't damage my curl pattern but still giving me my desired look! After working her magic and walking me through what was being done to my hair, I was left with beautiful results and a smile from ear to ear!!! I already have recommended her to my curly haired friends and anyone reading this I definitely recommend booking an appointment! She's a great person to talk to and clearly has a passion for what she does! I will definitely be returning to her for all my curly cuts and highlights!!

Still happy

I've been going to Candace for about a year and I'm still just as happy. She's very gifted and has great intuition, but she takes the time to listen to what I think about how my hair is now, what's working for me, what's not working, and what I want. After my cut today, my waves are feeling healthy, moisturized, bouncy, voluminous, and happy! I’ll continue to recommend Candace to my friends left and right!

My hair is finally growing!!!!!!

Before Candace, I had endless bad haircuts. I had 3 stylists pulling and tugging at my hair trying to cut it at one time, I had people just grab my hair and cut one wonky line in one go. I had people who I paid a lot for who I really believed could take care of my hair but I always walked away with so much more cut off than I ever wanted. Then came Candace! I've only had 3 haircuts with her but in that time my hair has finally - for the first time ever - grown longer than shoulder length, which I'm very excited about. Candace listens to what you want and she helps you get there. She's honest in her assessment and product recommendations which I really appreciate. I feel confident that she knows what shes doing and on the days I get a cut and style with her, I get endless compliments walking around the city. On top of it all, Candace is great to talk to! Highly recommend.

I have ringlets!!!!

Candace is the absolute best. My hair was damaged and straightened from a Keratin treatment when I first visited Candace, and she truly works miracles! I love Candace’s thorough knowledge of curls (all different curl types!) and the way she cares about the health of my hair. With her help and guidance, I have been able to grow out my awful Keratin treatment, restore my hair’s health, and learn more about what my hair can do with every visit. I went from limp straws to ringlets! Candace is also super sweet and pleasant. She really is the best stylist!

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful!

I’ve been seeing Candace for almost a year & I trust no one else to cut my kinky curls! She really listens & gives you the cut you want, while being honest about what will & won’t work on your specific hair. I always leave feeling more calm & at ease with my ‘fro :)

amazing experience

I recently did a big chop with Candace and it was honestly the best experience I've had at a hair salon. Candace is kind and easy to talk to, she's efficient and attentive. Going to her salon was also the best decision I made for my hair; My hair was really curly in the back, kind of curly in the front and on the top that grew out into really straight ends. Other places didn't do much to help me; and then I found Candace. I'm much happier and I'm so excited to my new curl journey. 12 out of 10 would recommend.

Honestly before I got my first Deva Cut I have been always good at taking care of my curls and my hair grew very long and I felt that the length was weighing down my curls and I'm so blessed that I found her because I was super nervous about getting my haircut since I never got it professionally cut before and she made me feel so comfortable and listened to what I wanted for my hair. She made me fall in love with my curls and transformed it in ways I never knew curls could form. She absolutely amazing and I would recommend her to every curly girl. I will definitely be coming back to her for my future cuts!

Best Curly Cut

I have been going Candice for my haircut for the last two years. Every time is just as fantastic as my last cut. We always start off with a pleasant conversation about what kind of style I would like, what length I am comfortable with, and what kind of products work well with my curl pattern. Not only that, but Candice has helped change the way that I apply my products which has helped keep my curls very healthy. Candice is always fun to be around. She genuinely loves what she does and you can tell by the final result. Will always come back for my haircuts.

Absolutely Fabulous

Candice is magical. I feel like I have JUST learned to appreciate what my curls can do, and I'm 31 with two kids! She gave me solid advice about my cut and color and how my curls would be effected by certain styles. She also gave me a step by step run down on how to get the curls I want at home. GO SEE HER.

She's so great

I came in for a cut back in January and left with a voluminous shape and wielding tips for healthier hair! She's so friendly and knowledgeable, which (along with her IG @curlsbycandace) put me at ease when it came time for her to handle my hair. She has done great work with such a broad range of curl types. Your hair is definitely safe in her hands!

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.

Ahh-MAZING!

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 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 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 :-)

Amazing experience!

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!

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!

Absolutely Amazing!

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 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!
