Have you ever wondered what happened to the good ol’ fashioned barber who cuts your hair without an appointment? Walk in for your cut, and she will quickly and cheerfully make you feel great. We’re lucky to have such a great barber still in downtown Newport.

Candy’s Barbershop, Freestyle Hair Design, owned and operated by Candice Allard, is located at 398 Western Ave behind the Newport Car Wash and Mini Mart (behind gas pumps). Not only is Ms. Allard one of the best barbers around, she is the only woman barber around this area with over 36 years’ experience. Originally from Newport, she moved out West in the late 1970s and received her barbering degree in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1980. Subsequently, she owned a styling salon in Breckenridge, Colorado, for five years before returning back East in 1986.

“This is a ‘walk in only,’ first come, first serve,” says Ms. Allard who prides herself on many years of expertise and experience. Ms. Allard has been at her current location for over 24 years, thanks to tall her loyal customers, old and new over the years.

“Cuts for hair that never need repair.” This is the guarantee of satisfaction you will receive from Candice Allard.
