I am the grateful owner of Inside Out Salon!
I specialize in color, precision and free hand cutting, natural styling and smoothing treatments.
I am amazed that I am blessed to be able to do what I love every single day! I’m inspired by God’s creations, nature, fashion and the people around me. When I first joined this field in 1998 I had no idea how far it would take me.
I’ve been able to evolve into so many different avenues of such a phenomenal industry. I spent my first 4 years working for Regis, the largest salon chain at that time.
I attended Dudley Cosmetology University in North Carolina. Shortly after graduating I began working for them as a Sales Rep developing a route in Southwest Virginia. After a year of commuting between Virginia and North Carolina, Mr. Dudley asked me to join their team on full-time basis and relocate to their headquarters in Kernersville, North Carolina. I accepted the offer and took on one of the biggest challenges of my life. While working for Dudley Products, a leader in African American haircare, I was as an educator, platform artist, salon-spa assistant coordinator, stylist and much more.
After gleaning a wealth of knowledge, it was time for me to get back to the mountains of Virginia. I had been offered a position with Regis (again as a manager) but in a perfect moment of God’s timing was thrust into the amazing opportunity to buy my first salon. During the first years of owning in Radford, I was able to travel, working as an educator. I began using Schwarzkopf color in 2003 and became an educator for them soon after.
Through my career I’ve been able to travel all over the country, from LA to Chicago, to Miami, and back. Having been to so many different places I can honestly say there is no place like home. I moved the salon team to Christiansburg in 2006 and it has been such a wonderful journey. We have a phenomenal team and I am so proud of each and every one of them.
I have a strong passion for professionalism and positivity.
Allow me to invite you to join us at our salon so we can help you express your true beauty from the Inside Out.
I was born and raised in Christiansburg and have always loved doing hair. I specialize in men’s cuts and kids cuts and love doing them!
In addition to my expertise in cutting and extensive color services, I enjoy doing event hair and offering makeup services as well!
During the week, I am actually a middle school teacher and love getting to spend my workdays with my students as that is my other passion! I look forward to meeting and serving you!
I always knew that I wanted to do two things growing up - be creative and help others feel their best! Being a stylist is the best way for me to do both of these. My passion lies within helping people to look and feel great, while having a relaxing and fun experience in my chair. I've been in this industry since I was 16 as an apprentice, and still love it just as much as I did when I started! I love getting to meet people from all walks of life! My specialties consist of balayage services, vivid color transformations, and working with fine hair textures!
Ever since I was a young girl, I always knew I wanted to do hair! I attended and graduated from Aveda in 2014 and I absolutely love what I do. I love working at Inside Out Salon because it aligns with what I stand for. I want people to look and feel beautiful from the inside out. I love doing fashion vivid colors and bringing their personality out through their hair. I also love balayage and highlights and creating a customized look for my clients. I have 4 brothers and amazing husband who let me practice on him and fall in love with men’s cuts ever since I was in school. I love cutting in general because everyone is different and I love creating a personalized look for everyone. I have such a love and passion for this industry and cherish each client that sits in my chair!
My name is Candice Smith, I’m an Aveda trained stylist in color, corrective color, specializing in Blonding services and precision cutting. I have 18 years experience behind the chair, with years of continued education in Aveda, Wella, and Davines. I am currently booking out 6-8 weeks for specialized services, but continue to take on new guests at this time. I would love to work with you to reach your hair goals. It’s my number one priority to give you both a excellent service experience and educate you on how to best care for your hair needs. As well as a stylist, I am married for 21 years to my highschool sweet heart, a mother of 5 children, and 4 demanding Pugs. I love Jesus, singing, cooking reading and family time!
My name is Diane Paton and I have been employed at Inside Out Salon for almost 10 years. I have been a licensed stylist for 25 years, during which I have cut both women and men's hair. Other services I offer include highlighting, lowlighting, and gray coverage/blending.
My goal, as your stylist, is to make you feel beautiful and confident from the inside out, and help to educate you on haircare. I believe that having a healthy head of hair starts from the inside.
My passions outside of being a hairstylist consist of spending time with the love of my life of 22 years, our boxer furbaby Lacy, and overall health and fitness. I also love the Lord, the beach, and quality time spent with family and friends!
Hi! My Name is Hannah Lancaster. I’ve been in the hair industry since 2013 and have close to ten years of experience. I trained in a Redken influenced beauty school in South Georgia for two years before moving to the beautiful state of Virginia. I’ve had extensive training in multiple color lines and have continuously educated myself on the upcoming trends in color and cutting techniques. I specialize in blonding services, corrective coloring, curly textures and special occasion styling. I am very passionate about helping women restore and maintain healthy hair throughout color services and outside the salon. When I’m not doing hair, you can find me cooking or spending time with my family. I’m a mom to a beautiful little boy and a wife to a wonderful husband of three years. We enjoy taking long rides and finding new places to explore, watching our boy grow, and sipping on something hot. I count it a honor and a privilege to have a job that I love and I look forward to meeting you for all your hair needs.
I've been in the hair industry for 9 years! I'm always furthering my education in lived-in hair. Ranging from textured bobs, pixies, and long layering. I specialize in blending/blonding services like balayage, babylights, and reverse balayage. My goal is to make you feel comfortable, educate you, and give you a look/style you're able to manage in your everyday life.
