The Six Figure Spa Chick Talks the Importance of Self-Care

Candance Holyfield, aka The Six Figure Spa Chick, is a pioneering entrepreneur. She has impacted the spa industry through her diverse ventures, such as Black Spa Tribe, the Black Spa Expo, and the Black Spa Awards. With steadfast commitment, Candace has transformed the spa landscape, advocating for inclusivity, empowerment, and the acknowledgment of Black professionals in the field. 

The Six Figure Spa Chick is a platform that empowers and educates spa professionals on achieving financial success. Through workshops, courses, and resources, Candace imparts her expertise to help spa owners and practitioners navigate the intricate world of business management, ultimately leading them toward financial prosperity. Meanwhile, The Black Spa Tribe is a safe space for Black spa professionals to connect, share experiences, and collaborate, and The Black Spa Awards and Black Spa Expo are ways to recognize the best of the best in the Black spa industry. 

You may have seen Candace in the past on our website or even in ESSENCE Magazine, as her work precedes her. We caught up with this self-care professional to learn how she manages her own self-care with her busy schedule. 


Fancy: Your organization, The Six-Figure Spa Chick, has empowered countless Black women to achieve financial success in the spa and beauty industry. What motivated you to create this platform, and can you share a success story that stands out to you?

Candace: I was featured in one of the top spa magazines but never won two years in a row. I was already hosting events for spa professionals when I decided one day that I wanted to be a leader in my industry. I already made six figures and had a storefront, so everyone also asked me questions. For the first four years, I never charged. I was just helping others for free. I turned it into a business in 2016. I helped my entire spa team make six figures each back in 2013, and when I turned it into a business, I helped 23 people make their first seven figures. I just want everyone to win. The black spa industry has been overlooked for years, and I made it my business to be the change I wanted to see.

Fancy: Your Black Spa Expo and Black Spa Awards also garner more attention for Black professionals within this industry, but like most things, I am sure it was a risk for you. How did you decide to move forward with these ideas? 

Candace: Omg!!! The Black Spa Expo and Black Spa Awards are my legacy!! I have received backlash for serving black spa pros. However, we had no one to serve us, so I did it. These two events have turned into something so magical, and I would do it all over again!!

Fancy: Now that you have mastered the spa game, what is something you would have done differently starting? Candace: I would have started with a business coach on day one. I didn’t get a coach until 2015. I was already creative, so my business thrived in year one. Once I got a coach, the game changed for me. I went from $30k months to $100k months!!
