Certified Stylists

Lead Stylist and Educator
Chadwick is a recognized expert when it comes to the art of creating beautiful hair. His innate approach to hairstyling is solidly rooted in his precision cutting expertise and rich knowledge of state-of-the art styling skills for all types of hair, from stick straight to uncontrollably curly. He constantly pushes the boundaries of his art.

Highly skilled in the very unique techniques that are special to curly hair, Chadwick initially was trained as a Ouidad Certified Stylist at the Manhattan Ouidad Salon by founder and owner Ouidad herself, who is an internationally recognized stylist and known as the pioneer of the curly hair industry. Chadwick’s superb training in Ouidad’s trademarked cutting and styling techniques have enabled him to become Master Artistic Educator for the Company and travel to NYC and LA flagship salons, inspiring, training, educating and certifying other stylists using the Ouidad Certification Process.

Lead Colorist
Born in Brazil, Igor brings the passion, energy and zest for life of that cultural region to his work. Igor gravitated toward hair coloring from an early age and has perfected his craft to such a high level of excellence that he is both a Ouidad Certified Stylist, highly knowledgeable about the sculpture of curly hair, and a Goldwell Technical Artist, for which he travels to Goldwell’s Academies in New York, Los Angeles and Baltimore to continually learn more and raise the bar of his coloring skills. He also travels across the U.S. to teach other stylists about the many variances and hues of color and how to achieve precise results depending on an individual client’s hair texture, color and shape.
Lead Stylist
With luscious curls of her own, Sondriel is known throughout the beauty industry as a passionate and acclaimed stylist who specializes in textured curly hair. As the daughter of Ouidad, the world-famous stylist and the pioneer of the curly hair industry, Sondriel has styling in her genes. Certified first in Ouidad’s trademarked “Carving and Slicing®” technique as Senior Stylist, Sondriel then moved up to Ouidad Trainer and subsequently to Ouidad Educator. Sondriel also is certified in cutting with the award-winning hairdressing brand Arrojo.

Sondriel is an educator at heart. She has inspired others at the American Beauty Show in Chicago, the Premiere in Orlando, and America’s Beauty show in Las Vegas. Sondriel has traveled to salons across the country to empower other stylists in the art of cutting curly hair. Still today she plays a key role in the curl movement. She also fashions hair for photo shoots and fashion shows and has styled celebrities for Broadway shows, the Emmy Awards and New York Fashion Week events.

Caroline has curls and color in her soul. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, with naturally curly hair that also is very fine, she fell in love with color many years ago and even obtained her cosmetology degree while still in high school. Caroline loves color because it gives her the opportunity to expand her creative flair as she customizes color to each client’s hair needs and their personal lifestyle.

Caroline worked in Connecticut at the very first salon to become certified by Ouidad. She then earned her certification as an Ouidad stylist at the company’s Flagship Salon in Manhattan, where she was trained by Ouidad’s Assistant Vice President of Creative Education. Caroline stays current with her certification by continually attending as many color classes as possible; for example, she recently attended an Intense Reds class at the Wella Studio in Manhattan as well as a Goldwell color class in Miami.

“I am delighted that natural curls are back in,” Caroline says. “Curly hair is fun because you can do so many variations with it. It can look professional or sexy and glamorous. I am passionate about making curls look their very best by using color to add lustrous dimension and accentuate each curl’s definition.”

About Chadwick and Igor: “I’m a firm believer in creative chemistry and I felt that spark right away with the team at Ouidad Salon-FL by Chadwick and Igor. I think it’s very innovative the way each team member emphasizes education when working with clients so they better understand their hair and learn about its needs and the best tools to use with it. I’m working side-by-side with Igor in the color department to build a seamless bond with each other and our clients to deliver optimal experience and results that are second to none!”
From the Northeast, Amanda is privy to the latest in fashions in hair. Since she herself has fine curly hair, she always took an interest in how to cut and style it. In fact, she loves curly hair since she thinks it’s unique. But she also admits it can be a challenge to work with due to its typically coarse nature.

Amanda took her love of styling hair the next step and became an Ouidad certified stylist in New York City at the Ouidad Flagship salon. There, she learned the latest techniques for making curly hair a desired fashion statement.

“Curly hair made me fall in love with hair styling,” Amanda says. “So many women who have curly hair are intimated by it. But once they learn how to work with it, they see it can be gorgeous. I love helping women feel naturally beautiful. Seeing their faces light up with a smile when their hair looks radiant, shiny and styled after I work with them makes my day!”

About Chadwick and Igor: “Chadwick and Igor have been mentors of mine in the hair industry since the day I met them. Each are premier experts at what they do. Both taught me so much and inspired me to go further. When they asked me to join Ouidad by Chadwick & Igor in Fort Lauderdale, I was truly honored to become part of the gold standard benchmark for coloring, cutting and styling curly hair. They continue to go out of their way to help me be the stylist I am today. I am flourishing in this environment of creativity and feel nothing but happiness at helping to empower women to love their curly hair!”
Originally from New York, Kristine began her career as a stylist at age 16. She apprenticed under Peter Webb, master stylist from London, at his New York salon where she found her passion for educating other stylists. She went on to recruit and teach with Peter as well as grow her styling and coloring skills when she was behind the salon chair. As a real love emerged for education and hair coloring, Kristine accepted the position as Education Manager for Goldwell, a premier color brand, in Miami, FL. She has taught all over the state of Florida as well as in the Caribbean. She then went on to expand her role to Director of Education for nearly 20 different hair color and styling lines all over the country. She has been trained on multiple coloring techniques by world renowned colorists and regularly continues her education to elevate her skills. Kristine discovered that her first love was coloring because it allowed her to express her creativity. She also is proud and honored to help her clients feel beautiful and to happily embrace their look. About Chadwick and Igor: "I first met Chadwick and Igor in the hair styling and coloring educational arena. They both have such passion and creativity about their work that was readily contagious. It reminded me of why I do what I do. When I heard their vision for the Ouidad Fort Lauderdale (By Chadwick and Igor) salon and saw how it came to life, I immediately knew I wanted to be part of their team. Not only would it enable me to continue my craft in a highly motivational atmosphere but also to keep growing and evolving as a stylist from their incredibly inspirational approach."

I've been with Chadwick since he first became a Ouidad stylist to being recognized as the master artist and curl guru he always was inside and continues to be. He brings out the best in my curls. It's because of his unique talent that I've transitioned from straightening, flat ironing, and denying my curls to raking, shaking, and embracing them. And while I'm happy being my true curly-headed self, I was not ready for the grey. Thanks to Igor my color looks au natural. If you've never had your hair cut and colored by them, it is worth going out of your way from wherever you are to have Chadwick cut and style and Igor color your hair. I cannot recommend them highly enough. And it's not just my thinking, but many others' opinions as well as Chadwick travels the country training other Ouidad stylists. As wonderful a teacher as he is, no one is Chadwick! Stop researching and reviewing your options and make an appointment with Chadwick and Igor. Wait, actually don't because I want to be able to get in to see them whenever I need them!

Finally I will be able to get my curls back thanks to Chadwick. What a wonderful first time experience. Very professional yet personable. Deep treat is a must if you have not tried it, it's a curl saver. Can't wait to go back.

Would highly recommend this salon and it's staff. Chadwick has been cutting my hair for years and my hair has never looked better. Never knew how to properly care for my hair before Ouidad and Chadwick.

For your sake I hope you take this comment very,very seriously! Saying I couldn't recognize my hair after Chadwick cut it is a complete under statement. I knew my cut was over, but I could not stop checking out the head of curls staring back at me. I have never had a hair dresser take so much time in paying attention to every inch of my head of curls. I normally have hair dressers apply product to the outside layer and give it a little shake...to heck with those days! Chadwick, you are an artist and have another customer for life. I can not wait to attend the complimentary curl education classes

I am so happy with Chadwick's hair cut! It's really amazing!!!! He kindly explained me how to style my hair. Also Caroline did a beautiful job with the color. This was coordinated with Chadwick to allow a complement between hair cut and color according with face shape, curls...best help! Also Tatiana who sets appts is very kind and efficient! I am so grateful with all of them not only because their high quality job but because they are so kind too!

I will not trust anyone except Chad and Igor. I might have sworn off chemical relaxers, but I cannot live without red hair. Chad and Igor as a team, understand my need to be curly AND a redhead. Their expertise makes my hair healthier and this curly lady very happy!

Chadwick is a magician in how he manipulates my curls. Igor is a gem and is super talented with color. My hair has never looked and felt better. The guys make great product suggestions without making me feel forced to buy. Love this power team- I always leave feeling like a celebrity.

Igor has been coloring my hair for several years. I have been to other colorists, but have never been completely satisfied until I met Igor. He really takes his time in discussing what your needs and concerns are and then he creates his magic. I am always thrilled with the outcome!!! I love him !!!

I have had my hair cut with other Ouidad stylists both in the salon in NYC and another South Florida location. Chadwick is by far the best. I call him my magician. He understands curly hair and I have tight curls. Igor is the colorist and he is equally talented. These two are a force!

Chadwick has been my stylist for about 3 years and he is simply Amazing! He takes the time to listen to your needs and concerns, he is friendly and always makes you feel like a queen! Igor is awesome, he's a very highly skilled colorist. Together they are the dynamic duo, love them!

Chad cut my hair and my daughter's hair. What a difference. I have our next appointments booked for the end of December already!Well worth the drive and the money. Should have treated ourselves sooner than we did!

This was our second visit, they definitely know what they are doing with curly hair. Chadwick is amazing and took the time to teach my daughter how to style her own hair. So glad we found this salon, well worth the drive and money.

I had my haircut with Chad on 33112 - not a day goes by that I don't get a compliment on my new hairstyle. I had seen other Ouidad certified styliests here in South Florida but never experienced these results. Chad is absolutley the best!! Looking forwad to my next appt. Lucia

Chad cut my hair, Robert colored it. I have decided that this is not actually a beauty saloon, but a place of magic. I look at least 10 years younger, friends say that I look amazing. Michelle, who I believe is a manager, took the time to teach me how to do my hair myself. I felt like a star!!!

I only recently started wearing my hair curly and decided to get the Ouidad cut. Even though the Las Olas Beauty was 1 12 hours from my house the salon gave directions better than mapquest! I decided to go there based on the great reviews. I was NOT disappointed! As soon as I walked in the door I was impressed with the high level of customer service. Chad cut my hair and he did an amazing job! He took the time to talk to me about my hair and explained very clearly about how to style it. My hair has NEVER looked so good! All the frizz is gone and my hair looks transformed. Even though this cut is on the expensive side it is well worth it. Never again will I want to hide my curls!!!

This was my first visit and I was fortunate enough to be booked with Chad. What I loved most about my visit is that Chad asked a lot of questions about my hair and hair regime. He was truly interested in helping me make my hair look great. He gave me great advice on how to style my hair at home in a way that fits my daily routine. The haircut was divine. I left in love with my hair again it was a refreshing haircut, totally what I was looking for. It's always hard for a curly head to find a stylist she can trust, and I have finally found him. Las Olas Beauty is my new salon and Chad is my new stylist. Search is over, no need to go anywhere else.

I have very curly hair and have been loyal to Las Olas Beauty for some time now because of their Ouidad Certified staff members. Like many with my type of hair, I have had my hair ruined in the past by other salons where people just don't understand how to work with real curls. CHAD cut and highlighted my hair recently and it looks absolutely amazing, modern and frizz free. He has a brilliant eye and is a true artist with both his scissor and color!! I receive compliments on a daily basis. Thank you CHAD for really bringing out my wonderful curls!

It was awesome to finally be able to grow my hair. With this cut I can actually go longer in between cuts. I now love my curly hair.
