About Candice Austin Updyke

Since earning my cosmetology license at 17 from a vocational school in the suburbs of Philadelphia , I have dreamed of having my own salon, it is now becoming a reality! After 15 years or experience in the industry and in various salon settings, I know what works well and makes people comfortable and excited! The constant evolution in hair and my industry is my favorite thing about having this as my career ! Knowledge is power, and I love to learn about hair and the world surrounding it! I cant wait to treat you the little details I've learned, and engage in every day.


I love keeping up with new techniques and I specialize in educating you on any need you may have. I love doing balyage, highlights, smoothing treatments, coloring , haircuts and styling. Once a year Premiere Hair and spa show comes to Orlando, and while attending I frequent educational seminars from many different vendors so I can have a vast amount of theory and practical knowledge. I have certifications in Pravana Chromasilk Hair Color, Goldwell, Redken, Keratherapy, Keratin Complex,and have attended the be creative house by Bumble and Bumble.


In my free time I love spending time with my husband and our 3 dogs. I also enjoy gardening, kayaking, boating, snorkeling and drives to find new adventures !
