Candis wanted to be a hairdresser since childhood, but took a more traditional path for her education by receiving her B.S. degree in Finance in 2003. Three years later, she decided to pursue her dream and enrolled in THE TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School. Her life changed the day she toured the facility!
After she was licensed, Candis was a learning leader with THE TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School for three years, and while employed with us, she was certified as a national educator with Paul Mitchell. She also received her senior cosmetology license while working partime behind the chair. In 2009, Candis finally found what she was looking for – Floyd’s 99 Barbershop! In a very short period of time, Candis moved up from shop manager, first as a member of Floyd’s education team, then as a multi-unit manager and now as a district manager. It has been a busy seven years for Candis!
Tip for Future Professionals: “Do your personal best every day. If your personal best is not good enough, do not make excuses. Get better! Surround yourself with people who are better than you, and you will rise to the challenge. Know that the extra effort you put in is noticed and will be rewarded. Do not let yourself be influenced by people who do not share your passion. Know that the people who give minimal effort when you give you all have, will only make you shine that much brighter. Without mediocrity there is no excellence,” shares Candis.
