Kate Kandel is a hair stylist and owner of Kate Kandel Salon in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. With over 10 years experience as a stylist, she specializes in balayage and precision haircuts.  

Trained in both Los Angeles and New York, Kate was a traveling KEVIN.MURPHY COLOR.ME educator for the Carolinas for over 2 years. 

Kate has been an artist from an early age and loves spending her free time painting.  She finds inspiration and recharges hiking with her dog, Kumba.  Wood grain, reflections off water, and seasonal changes in nature inspire her work as a stylist and colorist.

Neeley Israel | Stylist

Neeley and her husband recently moved back to Greenville to start their family after a few years living in Summerville, SC. She is a seasoned stylist with just under a decade of experience. She is a color pro and loves pixie cuts, curls, and styling updos. She loves natural lived in hair colors, but is always happy to change it up.

Neeley is a self proclaimed animal lover with 2 dogs (Murphy and Milo) and 2 cats Mia & Merlin. She loves plants, but does admit she’s still working on her green thumb.

A hobby of Neeley is painting, something that we are sure helps her to paint a fantastic balayage.

Michael Kandel | Co-Owner & Marketing

Michael relocated from Los Angeles to start Kate Kandel Salon with his sister Kate. His background in design took him all over the world working in the fashion, luxury, and athletic industry. With both siblings living in Greenville and a nephew on the way, he wanted to be closer to family for the first time since graduating college. 

Michael still loves design and enjoys interior design and hanging out with his dog Lucy, a well traveled little American Dingo rescued from Puerto Rico.

A co-owner of Kate Kandel Salon, he manages the salon’s marketing, design needs, finances, and business development.
