Nicole is a creative and enthusiastic hairstylist. She has been doing hair professionally since 2009. Prior to attending the Redken Academy for Salon Professionals, Nicole spent 5 years running the front desk of a prominent full service salon in Los Gatos, CA.
After graduating from the AFSP and passing the California State Board exam, Nicole became an independent stylist at Trends Salon in the heart of Los Gatos. Here she rented a full time station and began building both her reputation and clientele.
Client satisfaction and education are Nicole's top priorities. She firmly believes you can't have one without the other, that requires commitment to staying ahead of the curve on techniques, products and styles. She attends hair shows, educational seminars and belongs to an online education community. Nicole has not only spent time learning in the classroom but was honored to be asked back as a guest educator at the AFSP!
In 2014, after 5 wonderful years at Trends Salon and receiving the Los Gatos Weekly's "Best of Los Gatos: Best Hairstylist" (*2nd place*) Award, Nicole decided to embark on a new adventure -- opening up her own 1 chair shop in downtown Willow Glen, CA. Here she is able to spend quality time with her clients and focus on giving them chic, easily maintainable hair that makes them feel fabulous everyday!
