Nicolette decided to follow her passion 21 years ago and began her career as a Hair Stylist . After receiving a license from Pittsburgh Beauty Academy, she continued her education with Vidal Sassoon in Santa Monica CA, focusing on precision hair cutting. From there, she acquired a stylist position in Nashville, closely working with the Bumble & Bumble product line and continuing advanced education for styling and texture cutting. This led her to being a Bumble & Bumble Network Educator for 10 years. While honing her skill in creating shapes and texture through cutting hair, Nicolette has also had the opportunity to work with a variety of color lines and techniques, becoming a Certified Colorist with Aveda, Redken, and Framesi.
Travel has always had a huge influence on her life and work, with an ultimate dream to open an organic salon that is inspired by the many facets of Nicolette's experience. After 21 years of working in three amazing salons located in Pittsburgh, Nashville, and Richmond, Nicolette has achieved her dream and opened Mandala Wellbeing Salon. By providing a Salon which uses Certified, clean, organic products and color, Mandala combines years of hair experience and a peaceful environment to provide a refreshing salon experience.
