I have tried many stylist since I’ve been in Atlanta (5+ years) Candace by far is the BEST there is. My husband told me that I better stick with her and I’ll agree with him (this once). My color is amazing…my hair looks amazing and it lasts FOREVER! Thank you for just being the BEST! ~ Natalie Miller

Candace is the only stylist I trust to cut & color my hair…I’ve been a blonde, redhead, and am now back to my natural dark brown. Ppl think having color equals hair breakage, dull & dry. Not w/ Candace…my hair was amazing to where you’d think I was born that way. Having long hair I’ve also hated stylists that when getting my ends trimmed it looked like a full on cut…not here. Candace provides the trim & styling while keeping my length. I currently have an asymmetrical cut that has grown out, but still has kept it’s shape & yields daily compliments. I also was ignorant to Paul Mitchell’s hair care products. I didn’t think they were for African American hair…WRONG!!! Since using their products and hair color, my hair has literally been the healthiest it’s ever been. Healthy hair is priceless ladies….we put time, energy & money into everything else, well make sure you give your hair the best too! And the best is Candace! ~ Janaia Moore

I always walk out of the salon feeling good and looking great. Candace is AMAZING with my natural hair. It is always so silky and full of body when she does it. People stop me all of the time to compliment my hair. She is very talented and a true professional! ~ Veronica Best
