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!”

For Jessi, a career in the beauty industry was a decision to pursue her passion. After graduating from Florida State University and working in the medical field for 10 years, she decided to go back to school to study hair and makeup design. She was trained in a 2300-hour comprehensive program at Paul Mitchell The School in Portland, OR. Jessi graduated early, and was quickly licensed in Hair Design, Esthetics, and Nail Technology by the State of Oregon. She began to specialize in event and bridal styling, which led to being published for her work. The next step in her journey brought Jessi to South Florida to continue her career and acquire her second state licensure. As she continued to hone her craft, she joined the Ouidad family to specialize in coloring curly hair. This experience has given her continued training in hand painting, balayage, blonding, ombré, and creative styling for curls.

Her favorite way to style curly hair is with lots of movement and soft to the touch while embracing the pure essence of each curl pattern.

Dominick did an amazing job. I came in with a repair job — too many highlights and in the wrong color for me. I needed it reversed and revised. He did it! Not only did he fix it, he gave me beautiful, flattering color that I love — no matter what the circumstances. Thank you, Dominick! You are awesome!

If you have fine tight curly hair I strongly recommend going to Ouidad and getting a haircut or style with Yvette. I have visited a ton of hair salons looking for a hair stylist and avoiding the afro as soon as my hair dries. I walked in for a haircut and wanted volume and shape for my fine hair. Yvette is very personable. We have similar hair type and quickly started chatting about our experiences with our curly hair. She was very attentive to what I asked for and did exactly what i wanted. She didn't push to sell products she used on my hair nor did my experience feel rushed. I finally found my hair stylist! My hair has volume and a defined shape even after I washed and used my preferred products. Thanks Yvette!

I have been dying to come to Ouidad forever since their specialty is curly hair. I procrastinated getting an appointment and waited till the last minute. I basically kicked myself in the behind when I finally attempted to make an appointment online and there was no availability for the next day. I wanted a new look for my nieces Sweet 16 Birthday party, so getting this appointment was imperative. I decided to send a private message to their Facebook page with no true hopes of getting a response. To my surprise not only did I receive a prompt reply but I got an appointment. Thank you Igor, for squeezing me in and making this day extra special. Dominick was my colorist and he rocked my hair; the color is more beautiful than I imagined. He took his time and gave my hair the full attention it needed. After having it toned and conditioned by a nice young man; I sat with my stylist, Eidi. She was just adorable. There's no way you can leave her chair without your confidence being boosted. I lost count of how many times she called me Gorgeous, and I know I'm not, but it's super nice to hear. After the rake and shake with gel and a few toss and turns with the diffuser... my curls have NEVER looked this perfect. Great body and volume, beautiful color and shiny, and literally the perfect curl. I am writing this 3-days after my appointment and I wake up with the song "I woke up like this" playing in my head because my curls are still FLAWLESS!

I have been getting my hair cut in the NY salon for 7 years while living in South Florida. I recently tried Chadwick and I have found my new salon. He took his time to get to know my daily routine and products that I have been using by Ouidad. He suggested a few changes that I have never been told before and I am so happy with my hair. The cut was perfect. He listened to the length and shape that I wanted and he gave me exactly what we discussed. He suggested a deep conditioning treatment which was like like nothing I have ever gotten before. I highly recommend that as well. The salon and staff were also top notch from the moment I walked in to the time that I left. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel very welcomed. I couldn't be happier with Chadwick and his amazing team!!!!!

This was my first Ouidad Style cut and I love it! I had been cutting my curls in the Deva cut way and the difference is huge. My curls feel soft and flowing. Even my boyfriend noticed right away and he likes it too. Sondriel did a wonderful job!

Had my first haircut today with Chadwick and am very happy with the results. My hair was long, shapeless and unruly and I was looking for a total change. Got a shoulder length cut with a beautiful shape that gave nice volume to my hair. Loved the salon and staff and will definitely go back. Worth the drive from Miami!

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!

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, 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.
