Marie Carter (stylist and owner) did my hair for years while I lived in Louisiana. I followed her to different salons until she established her own salon. Marie took considerable time designing a modern and stylish establishment. It is a small town salon, with a luxurious feel. You will not feel like you are still in Leesville while pampering yourself at Eyecandy. Some complaints about Eyecandy is the cost and lack of appointments. From my experience, Eyecandy is not more expensive than other local stylists. Even if the prices were higher, sometimes you have to pay for quality. Marie does exceptional work. If for some reason you are unhappy with Eyecandy’s services, Marie takes every measure to ensure her clientele is happy and leaves the salon looking and feeling fantastic. As far as the appointments, I personally would not want to see a stylist who is not busy. Marie is booked because she has hundreds of return clients and many referrals due to her unique capabilities. If I ever move back to Leesville, I will definitely again be a client of Marie's. *** I wrote my original review in June 2008. I had not logged on in sometime and just read the other review referring to MINE! I am not Marie's sister and in no way related to her. I am in the Army and was stationed at Ft. Polk for 6 yrs. When I wasn't deployed, Marie was my stylist. If you look at my other reviews, they are from everywhere else I have lived. I stand by my review of Marie's salon. She is an exceptional stylist and I would love to live closer where she could still do my hair.
OMG!!! Jana is such a miracle worker!!! First time ever to her salon yesterday and she was extremely helpful. The last hair salon I went to in deridder burnt off almost all my hair and Jana fixed it to where you can not tell it's damaged... She is the best stylist I have ever been too.. She was very honest, and understanding and didn't rush me to make any decisions on colors, she explained everything in detail.. And she was so so so very nice!!! If anyone is looking for a salon where you are not judged r feel uncomfortable this is your place.. I honestly felt like I was hanging with old friends!!! This place is awesome I will never go anywhere else!!! Thanks Jana Ur awesome!!!
After going to other places in Leesville and surrounding areas to get my hair cut, I had decided to never have someone cut my hair again. ( I seriously have some hair cut horror stories.) I researched where to go since it had been three years of growing my hair out and trimming it myself. I read the reviews for Kuttin up with Alana and decided to try her. I went prepared with pictures of what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I wanted and more! I have had so many compliments on my hair since I've gone to her. She was fast, precise and professional! I have recommended her to all my friends and family.
