Faith Montague's passion for styling hair started at a young age. She started practicing on herself and her family, determined to master caring for natural African American hair. After a nine-year hiatus from styling to serve in the Army, Faith created Candid You in order to showcase her 14 years of experience in haircare. With specialties in braiding, and protective styling, she also offers Sisterlocks, a gentle, chemical-free technique that uses the natural textures of African American hair to create flowing locks.
At Hello Beautiful, stylist Imani Zeledon sews human or synthetic hair extensions into heads, creates rows of pretty braids, and maintains dreadlocks by re-twisting them at the end. She also takes unruly manes and turns them into straight, shiny, manageable 'dos.
At Nirvana Reflexology Spa, a team of certified reflexologists uses the ancient therapy to relieve ailments and reduce toxins. During reflexology treatments, pressure is applied to specific areas of the feet and hands that are believed to line up with many of the body's internal organs. The treatment, aside from inducing general feelings of relaxation and well-being, has been shown to positively impact everything from migraines and back pain to insomnia and anxiety. For additional soothing, the therapists also administer an herbal tea bath for the feet, since coffee can often leave toes jumpy, and they also work out tension in the neck and scalp, adjusting pressure to each client's comfort level.
