Second Place: Rebekah Howard of Serendipity
Third Place (Tie): Kaitlin Candella of Bombshell and Kaci Minnick of Studio Copal
Battling curly hair, which can be reduced to an unruly frizz during a muggy Richmond summer, can be arduous to say the least. Erika Mihalovich of Bombshell makes the task easier with an eye for cutting curls and for dry cuts of all types. The stylist emphasizes natural looks and softer highlights. “I tend to think people should be a little more natural, more beautiful, more classic,” she says. Rebekah Howard, owner of Serendipity, specializes in designer cuts and color. Kaitlin Candella specializes in balayage, a French technique of painting on highlight color rather than using foil. Kaci Minnick also has an eye for cuts and offers a relaxing spa experience at Studio Copal.
