About

Hi. I'm Candice Stirling. I'm a cosmetologist in the Northern Virginia area, but I like to call myself an ARTIST as my creativity flows beyond hair.  I see hair as an empty canvas and an opportunity to paint a perfect picture designed uniquely for each person that sits in my chair.  I look at my clients as friends and a new referral or walk- in as a growing chance to connect with a new person.   I have a licensed degree from the Paul Mitchell School.  I have been in the salon environment since 2008 and actively doing hair since 2010.  I have a clientele that anyone would be beyond grateful for.  I love to learn new processes and techniques to improve the hair of my clients.  I enjoy a challenge in life and in my work. I thrive with color and textured cutting, but precision cutting and styling are my forte. The extra fun chemical /non- chemical treatments  are specialty too.  Hair comes very naturally to me. I'm well educated in color and natural products and use these products to help maintain and rebuild. Come sit in my chair. Consultations are free. All I ask is that you have an open mind to the possibilities that await. If you're feeling down, I'll help bring you up. It's my job to make a client feel special and look their best. I am graciously looking forward to meeting you! :)

Candice has been cutting, coloring, and styling my hair for over ten years now! I have always received compliments of the natural coloring of my hair after highlights or balyage treatments. Actually a hair stylist that listens to what you want for your hair. She also makes sure that I get a deep conditioning to keep my hair healthy and beautiful! - Carleigh

Candice is truly an amazing artist. She has consistently styled my hair so beautifully and so youthfully that I receive complements wherever I go. My hair (and I) have never looked so good!

Candice is simply AMAZING! I've had very long hair for the majority of my life so I decided I needed a change so I came to Candice and I'm so glad I did. Not only did she give me an awesome cut but her suggestion to do balayage instead of full highlights was so the way to go! It looks so natural and is less maintenance. I absolutely love it! ❤️

Candice is not only an amazing friend but stylist she has been doing my hair for four years and I won't let anyone else touch it! Coming from a girl who likes her hair a specific way trust me Candice can achieve hair miracles!! She is also very friendly and takes the boringness of sitting in a hair salon for hours away! Go to her and I promise you will love her!! -Sarah S.

I first started getting my hair colored when I was 15 years old. I really struggled with what looked good and natural. Basically, what I did in the past looked really fake. I was so fortunate to meet Candice and tell her what I wanted; to Candice i said "I want it to be noticeable, yet also natural." I've never been so happy with not only the way my hair has looked, but the overall experience with her. She feels like a therapist to me. It's very warming to find a stylist that truly puts their heart and soul into what he/she does. I'm over the moon grateful that Candice is my stylist. I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone.
