I met Nicole J when she was a student at the Aveda Hair Institute in Ann Arbor. I have a lot of thick, heat -absorbent hair that can be difficult to manage. She tackled my hair with a good attitude and gave me background on why she decided to use each product in my hair before using it. We worked as a team to find the best hair solutions for healthy manageable hair. A few years post-graduation, I reconnected with Nicole. She started with a rigorous assessment of my current hair condition, including questions about my home regimen and hair goals. Every visit I learned something new about my hair. When I had to take a break due to scheduling conflicts, I felt confident that I had tools to take care of my hair until I was able to return to a salon.

Nowadays it is so hard to find a stylist who specializes in healthy hair! So many only focus on how your hair looks and never really touch on the importance of having healthy choices. Upon my arrival to Nicole James Salon, I was presented with educational material about healthy hair. I was so surprised at how much I didn't know! After my Nicole J experience I knew that I had found a jewel in the hair care industry. Nicole brought out my natural curls that I never knew I had. I've always thought of my hair to be nappy, extremely course and far from curly. I was in for a huge treat. I learned that my hair was only dehydrated and that I actually had a beautiful curl pattern. If it had not been for Nicole I wouldn't have known the true beauty of my natural God-given hair! Thank you, Nicole!

Nicole is great! I have natural hair that is very thick and tightly curled. She is the only person I go to to get my hair blown out, trimmed, and straightened. A natural hair care expert!

When I was looking for a hair stylist for my daughter, Azya, I knew that I wanted someone that would not only focus on the style of the hair but also the healthiness of her hair. Out of all the stylists that we have ever been to, I immediately thought of Nicole. I truly appreciate how she takes the time to educate her clients about their hair and the products that she recommends to make it healthier. No other stylist has done this for us before. Nicole takes her time with each and every client and is always sure to give you individualized attention. Her professional appearance is to be commended as well as the cleanliness of her shop. I'm particularly impressed by the promotions that she occasionally offers. Being on a budget, they make her prices affordable. As an added bonus, she sends her clients thank you cards for using her service and enters their name into a prize drawing .... this to me is going above and beyond to make her clients feel extra special! When looking for a stylist, look no further, Nicole is the one for you!

When I first came to Nicole J to get my hair done, I was greeted excitedly with a hug. She allowed me to relax as she set up the needed equipment around me. Before she began, she gave me a head massage, just a little something extra to help me relax. After my first visit, my hair felt healthier than ever. I returned to her for my senior prom. Not only was Nicole able to do my hair, but she was also able to do my make-up. I left her shop that day feeling amazing! A few months later, I started to experience severe hair breakage due to going to a friend of mine that was able to flat iron my hair for a small fee. I returned to Nicole with the issue I was having and explained to her how my hair was not growing anymore but was continuously breaking. Nicole was able to pinpoint the problem and use a variety of treatments on my hair and after a few weeks of this, I could feel that my hair was returning back to its healthier state. I really enjoyed Nicole's services not only because the end product of what I needed done always looked great, but because during the process I was educated on what my hair needed and how to take care of it. When it came to major hair decisions I wanted to make sure that I was informed about the pros and cons to both sides before I made any rash decisions. She was able to provide me with that and more. She showed me through her services that she cared about my hair just as much as I did. That meant a lot to me.

Nicole is the most thorough and attentive stylist to work on my hair. She is deliberate in what she puts in my hair and helps me learn how to keep my hair healthy. She is an expert on all hair textures. Natural or not, Nicole can deliver what you need and want. Nicole has been a great help with my ten-year-old daughter as well. She explains hair health to my daughter in a way she can understand. I am so thankful for Nicole's professionalism. Always on time and prepared, Nicole is an exceptional stylist who stands out above the rest.
