TESTIMONIALS

 KAREN

"I've been a client of Candace's for a few years now. She is a talented stylist and an excellent teacher. My curls look lovely they are healthy and flourishing in her care. Her tips and product recommendations are spot-on and Candace answers all hair questions honestly. Her easy-going spirit and the calm feeling she creates while in her chair makes for an enjoyable experience."

"I have trusted Candance to cut and care for my curls for years. She was the first hairdresser to really show me how to care for and style my curls. Coming off of mostly wearing my hair straight, the curl care techniques and haircuts Candance gave me help me achieve the healthy hair I have today. I couldn’t thank her enough. Highly recommended for sure!"

Melissa

I consider myself half New Yorker and half Jersey Girl! Born in the Bronx but raised in Jersey.

I am beyond enthusiastic about curly hair because I remember a time when I hated every single strand that grew out of my head. In spring 2007, my life changed for the better with my first “Big Chop”. I felt the weight of beauty standards and societal expectation fall to the ground that day and I haven’t looked back since.

Learning how to care for my own hair sparked my passion for curls, which led me to receive my cosmetology license in 2017. After graduating from Arrojo Cosmetology School Tribeca, I have since worked as a Freelance Stylist, Curl Consultant, and Apprentice/Stylist to Master Stylist Joe Miguel.

The past 10 years I’ve been wearing my hair naturally, I have discovered a liberation that I am hoping to spread to other women and girls. I am excited to join the Candace Witherspoon Salon and further develop my skillset and love for curly and textured

Candace

Born in New Jersey, I grew up in Liberia, West Africa - a place where my passion for hair began. By the age of ten, I began to braid and style everyone's hair - both family and friends. When I decided to turn this practice into a career, I moved to New York and began my journey in becoming the best. I spent five years training under many of New York best hair artist. During this time I continued to build both my client book and experience outside the salon by doing hair at NY Fashion Week for shows like Stella McCartney, Oscar de la Renta, Mugler, and Carolina Herrera. With all these experiences, under great masters of hair - I made the difficult decision to gain more independence and began to work as an independent stylist. Looking to advance my skills I decided to dive deeper into the curly world. In no time I became a senior stylist at the prestigious devachan salon both in SoHo and UWS. Knowing that I wanted to give my clients more, I made the move to open Candace Witherspoon salon. A place where all hair types (straight, curly, wavy, short, long, etc) are welcome. I have pursued my education at DevaCurl Academy of New York, L'Oréal Academy, Ouidad Academy, Aveda Institute and Keratin Complex and have had work published in Allure, Instyle, Bustle, Marie Claire, New York Post, Refinery 29, Dove | Mic, Self Magazine, Oprah Magazine, The Atlantic and Byrdie.

Charisma

Growing up with curly hair, people always tried to change my curls, and rarely did I find someone who knew what to do with my curls. After graduating cosmetology school, I made the decision to specialize in curly hair because I have a passion for working with the unique textures and the individual needs of curly hair. Most importantly, I want to inspire people to feel beautiful and embrace their natural hair. I am excited to join Candace Witherspoon salon as an apprentice to further my career in the curly world.
