About Kandalucci

Salon Kandalucci was established in 2006 with one thought in mind: to be the best salon in Glendale, AZ. We have grown a lot over the last 12 years. January of 2018 we relocated to our current location where David launched the new salon with the intention of expressing what Salon Kandalucci is all about. David’s mission at Salon Kandalucci is simple: to provide a place where you can find a momentary sanctuary from life’s everyday stresses. Your oasis in the desert, if you will. Our services, products, and efforts are all committed to helping you look and feel your very best. We look forward to serving you!

David Kando

Master Stylist / Educator / Owner

Owner of Salon Kandalucci, David came from a family of hair stylists. Over the years, he has experienced many different styles of cutting, which allowed him to express his creativity uniquely. In his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, he trained at the Tricoci Academy and spent a few years working at Mario Tricoci before relocating to Arizona. Shortly after the move, David was fortunate enough to take additional advanced courses with companies like Redken®, J Beverly Hills®, and Eufora International®. He then realized that he wanted to give back to the hair industry which had given him so much. David then partnered up with Eufora and became an educator. That decision has had the most significant impact on his career only because of the doors Eufora had opened. He has been blessed to take part in some of the most intense training courses Eufora offers which has changed the way David approaches hair.

Jessie Hermiz


Jessie has been in the industry since 2016. Growing up in a family of hair stylists, she had an immediate appreciation and connection to the beauty world. After graduating from cosmetology school in Glen Ellyn, IL, she moved to Arizona to train with and assist David, who also happens to be her uncle. She has been blessed to further her education by attending Eufora’s foundational cutting courses, and Eufora Salon Owners Network meetings that take place quarterly. Hair color is Jessie's passion, but she is so excited to receive additional advanced cutting courses to bridge the gap and create a total transformation. She looks forward every day to transforming people to feel as beautiful as ever. Jessie is thrilled more than ever to be doing what she loves and can’t wait to meet you!
