I first discovered Elana back in 2005 when she was at The Salon. I always walked out of there feeling like a rock star. Over the years I got busier and yes perhaps even lazier, ultimately straying to a place just a stones throw away from my office. However every once in a while I'd really miss Elana and those damn fine haircuts. So like a fairytale with a happy ending I'm back, she's got her own cute salon, and those other rock stars got nothing on me!
Elana is awesome. Hands-down the best stylist I've been to and she's been my gal for many years now. She's gentle, kind and really takes time to get to know her clients and their hair. I'm loving the new space she created and am stoked for her success.
I visited Hair Candy for the first time today and was very satisfied with the experience. Elana is efficient, thoughtful, and friendly. I had been afraid to have my hair cut for a few years (due to a bad experience at another salon), and she gave me a wonderful haircut and helped me decide exactly what I wanted. She did an excellent job and I was finished a lot faster than I expected yet I never felt rushed. Thank you!
I've been with Elana since her Transformer days. It's been wonderful to see what she's accomplished, she is most definitely deserving of all the kudos and success.
Elana is a wizard with color and her cuts are just fabulous. Most of the time my hair is in a ponytail and motorcycle helmet and I feel like I should apologize to her for being a poor advertisement. However, whenever I am able to "look like a girl" I'm consistently amazed at how great she's made my hair look. And oh my - the scalp massage she gives when she's shampoo'ing you - that alone is worth the visit.
Elana is really creative, skilled, always does rad, current haircuts, and she's really friendly, and always has a good stories and conversation flow. It's always good to come here and escape from the harsh non-haircut world.
