about Nikki

 

 

Expertly trained, skillful and dedicated to her craft, Nikki began her styling career working directly under famed celebrity hairstylist, Oscar Blandi. During her time at the famed Madison Avenue salon, she not only gained a loyal following but unparalleled experience. 

For the past decade, Nikki has enjoyed an exhilarating freelance career. Her impressive resume includes working with countless celebrities, NYFW runways, red carpets worldwide and print/online editorials. Her name is credited to network television shows and promotional material/lookbooks for fashion brands.

 

Nikki was one of the first Special Event focused hairstyling companies. Nicknamed "Brides Best Friend" by top event planners, Nikki and her team of hairstylists have been some of the most sought after in the industry since their beginning in 2006. Over a decade later, hundreds of events spanning 17 states, 9 countries and 4 continents, Nikki and her team have seen it all and understand the unique nature of special events... 

In other words, they get it. 

Nikki is also a Professional Educator. She represents numerous haircare brands and holds private classes to salon stylist and owners around the country, sharing her knowledge and experience in the business of beauty, blow-dry basics, intricate updo's, modern curls, beach wave technique and current trends. She also spends time consulting with salon owners and freelancers, enabling them to provide the highest level of service possible to their clientele.

When Nikki is not styling for events or in studio for haircuts, she can be found at home with her husband and rockstar daughters.
