Nicole fell in love with doing hair in a summer school class her freshman year of high school, and began her career after graduating from cosmetology school at Sunstate Academy in Clearwater, Florida in 2008. She is certified in Loreal color and balayage, and has attended numerous Premier Orlando hair shows, where she has completed advanced training in updos, color, highlights, and razor hair cutting. Her experience has taught her not to categorize everyone’s hair the same, as everyone has different densities, textures, and desires. She is a certified yoga teacher, Reiki healer, and an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and she utilizes the knowledge she has gained through those avenues to understand and connect with her clients. Nicole is new to Boulder, and is excited to continue getting to know the area and building a foundation here.
