After many years as an art student studying the color wheel, Nichole discovered her natural talent for color theory and turned her attention to hairstyling.  Her career took off, and she is now the co-owner of Defining Image Salon, showing people how they can have the hair they have always wanted.  Not only does she enjoy creating rich dimensional color that looks natural, she specializes in curly hair, showing how anyone can use the right products and styling to evoke their amazing natural curl.

Nichole is certified as a curly hair specialist and a Keratherpy smoothing specialist. Beginning with Goldwell, KMS, and Aveda (where she worked prior to joining Defining Image), she keeps her skills up to date with advanced cut, color and styling classes with Global Creative Directors for Goldwell and other Artistic Directors.  She keeps a keen eye on current fashion, with her hands firmly on the techniques to bring them to life.

Defining Image provided Nichole with the opportunity to work with certified master colorists, continue her advanced education with some of the biggest names in the industry, and enjoy a relaxed work environment with a group of people that helped push her critical thinking to a higher level.  She strives to make the salon a place where clients feel a real connection to their stylist, built on a solid foundation of trust.
