I attended the Aveda Institute of Des Moines and am a licensed cosmetologist. I came from being an independent booth renter and now am proud to have my own salon, The Hive. I specialize in color, from basic coloring techniques to high-end fashion colors and everything in between. I also stay current on hair cut trends. I'm passionate about learning. I attend classes at least once a month to develop and enhance my skills in all areas of hair dressing. I've trained at one of the top Salons in the United States, Van Michael in Atlanta, Georgia for both color and cutting. I also don't mind perms and relaxers. My clientele range from 15 years old to 90. I'm excited to be part of the Sola Salon community.
Nicole J reviewed The Hive Salon — 5 star Nicole is absolutely amazing! My hair was damaged, uneven, and the color was severely messed up ! She gave me everything I wanted and more! My hair color is not only perfect, it feels so much healthier ! January 28, 2016
Cecilia S. reviewed The Hive Salon — 5 star Nicole did a fantastic job! She is clearly very knowledgable about color. I was in a bind after getting my hair done two days ago somewhere else and hating it. I have a trip coming up tomorrow and Nicole was gracious enough to fix me on a Sunday with about 24 hour notice. That's service! So appreciative of her time and talent. January 10, 2016
Amanda K reviewed The Hive Salon — 5 star It was my 1st time with a real hair stylist! My nerves were on edge I wasn't sure what I was gonna experience or how my hair would turn out? With that being said... I felt welcomed as soon as I walked in the door! Nicole was super nice & a very real down too earth type of lady! She wasn't just a stylist who worked my hair she was also a very respectful individual she asked me what I wanted to do & did exactly that! Plus more! She definitely will have a forever customer right here she's highly recommended in my book. She definitely knows her hair, her waxes, colors & most importantly her products she uses as a stylist! I had a fantastic experience with her! Thank for reading my review guys! I'm one SATISFIED CUSTOMER! January 21, 2016
