Nicole is a Colorado native who grew up in the quaint town of Golden. After attending the University of Colorado at Boulder, she made the decision to continue her love of creativity and translate it into hair. She has been styling hair since 2013, after receiving her education from Paul Mitchell beauty school. She specializes in balayage, blondes, smoothing treatments, updos and eyebrow threading.
In her final year of attendance at Paul Mitchell beauty school, she acquired a round trip ticket to one of Paul Mitchell’s largest hair shows that takes place in Las Vegas. While there she took classes in advanced hair cutting and color techniques, attaining skills which she continues to use behind the chair today.
In 2015 she attended one of most influential hair shows in New York City, Intercoiffure; taking home firsthand knowledge on upcoming trends like extension application, while also getting the inside scoop into the next years’ trends and business propositions.
Understanding face shapes and skin tones is one of her strong suits and she always recommends the proper haircuts and color for each client that comes to her chair.
Not only does Nicole have expert knowledge on Wella color she also loves teaching her clients about products; she has over 4 years of experience working with world renouned brands like Oribe, Bumble and Bumble, Kevin Murphy, Kerastase, Paul Mitchell, Brazilian Blowout, Keratherapy, Balmain and many more. In addition to hair products, Nicole has a passion for skin care and makeup, always researching the best products to recommend for Colorado’s desert dry climate with sub-zero to 90 degree plus shifting weather patterns.
Involvement and interest in the ever changing beauty industry is the driving force behind almost everything Nicole does. However, living in one of the most beautiful states in the U.S., the outdoors often calls her name. On days Nicole isn’t behind the chair working her mysterious magic, she can be found hiking in the Colorado mountains with her beloved fur babies Tyson and Marc (Oh wait! Marc is her dreamy man hunk! Haha!). If you can’t find her roaming the hills, you’ll find her in the kitchen mixing up some yummy treats, because let’s face it, food is awesome!
Working among likeminded peers has kept Nicole reaching for the highest levels of styling artistry, changing lives, one head of hair at a time.
