About Us

Who We Are

We are an intimate, boutique-style salon where you are never treated like a number or another head of hair. From start-to-finish, your dedicated stylist works with you to design a style centered around your goals, hair texture, density and preferred maintenance schedule.

Just like a fingerprint, no two heads of hair are the same. You might want to be sure you never see a gray hair on your head or you might want to only blend and refine some existing silver. Maybe your hair is extra thick, maybe it is extra fine. Whatever your unique situation, you can be sure that we have a way to formulate a plan for your best hair – and not just for a few weeks buy everyday you wear it.

Meet Candice!

Candice has been styling, cutting, and coloring hair for over a decade. Connecting with guests and being creative is truly where her heart is. 

From a young age, Candice has had an eye for art and design. While the analytical part of her has led her into different paths in digital media and communications in recent years, she still savors perfecting a customized balayage and shaping cuts and coils to hairs’ natural fall.

Some of her specialties include:

Shaping curly hair to account for coils that shorten when dry.

Blending highlights to accentuate the natural way hair would lighten from time spent in the sunshine!

Short cuts that flatter the natural fall of any texture and strong hair patterns.

Meet Stacy!

Stacy Balog Myers is a skilled cosmetologist licensed in California and Illinois. California is where she began working behind the chair and eventually owned and operated her own salon.

In Illinois, Stacy has worked as a senior stylist and educator for Mario Tricoci salons and is constantly learning new techniques and trends that keep her on top of her game. Some of her specialties and certifications include:

SoCap and HotHeads sew-in weft and tape-in extensions.

A chemical texture specialist who is Mizani certified in relaxers and Coppola certified in keratin treatments.

A master at cutting who can tightly fade, create piecy texture, reduce weight, add volume, and blend all sorts of layers.
