UPDATE: In efforts to better serve my current clients, I have made the hard decision to stop taking on new clients until after February 2022, thank you!

Hello! My name is Nicole! I have been a Cosmetologist since 2011, I specialize in Balayage Highlights, Ombre, Blondes and Women's cuts. My passion for hair is shown in my work, love it when I can change someones mood and make them feel like a new person!

I sleep, eat, and think HAIR! Always looking out for the latest trends and different ways to educate myself in this industry. Literally eating dinner while watching hair videos, its a serious obsession. I have always wanted to do hair, ever since I can remember. Graduated from Aveda of S.Charlotte in 2011, where I was so dedicated I graduated early.

I was born in Connecticut (random, I know) my family is from Puerto Rico, I've lived here in NC and in Texas most of my life. I have an amazing husband of 7 years that has supported me in every decision. 

Thank you for checking out my page and reading this far :) I look forward to meeting you and achieving your #HairGoals. If you have any questions contact me and I would be happy to assist you.

Check out my Instagram, I have more amazing pictures on there.

Nicole is amazing!! I love her work, her energy, and her attention to detail! I am so picky about my hair and was worried about finding someone I could trust when I moved to Charlotte. God sent her to my Instagram feed and I booked immediately. She is the best! You'll love how you look and feel afterwards. So grateful for her. ❤

I have been seeing Nicole for the last 5 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair! She is very educated on products, colors, treatments, and maintenance for your hair. My first visit with her back in 2015 my hair was completely damaged, broken, and needing some serious love! Nicole really focused on getting my hair healthy, but still giving me my desired blonde look. I always look forward to my appointment with her, not only to get my fresh hair, but to catch up and chat with her! She maintains genuine relationships and friendships with all of her clients which I value. I am often stopped in public getting compliments on my hair and I am very quick to refer Nicole out for her work and professionalism in the industry. She is just the best!!

Wow!! I mean...wow. Nicole does such an amazing job! I have been going to her for almost 3 years, she came highly recommend and don't mind the 1 hour drive to and from. She makes my hair look phenomenal and is very consistent. Thank you so much Nicole! I really enjoy our conversations. Thanks for always doing a excellent job, it’s greatly appreciated. For those of you still looking for a thorough hair stylist, look no further. See you soon Nicole! Mariela

Nicole completely saved my hair and brought my confidence back!!! I first came to Nicole with awfully highlighted YELLOW hair. She is amazing at what she does and turned my yellow hair into a gorgeous blonde ombré! Since I started going to her, I have received tons of compliments on my hair color and I feel so much more confident. I have never trusted a stylist as much as I trust her and I would follow her anywhere because, yes, she’s THAT good!! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and professional at what she does, but she is also one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Trust me when I say you’ll leave her chair feeling absolutely gorgeous every time!!

Wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair. Besides leaving the salon looking amazing, more important, it’s the level of care and how healthy my hair is afterwards. Of course, you want your hair to look good but it is equally as important for it to be HEALTHY. No one has been able to understand that, except Nicole. Professional, beyond knowledgeable, just hands down, the best! Love her, love her, and I love her. Don’t look any further!!! I love you Nicolinaaaaaa

I don’t even know where to begin to describe the many ways Nicole is THE BEST!! I’ve been going to her for years and years and do not trust anyone else with my hair. I have thin, very curly hair and I’ve been able to reach a very ashy blonde color without damaging my hair and it’s all thanks to Nicole’s care, attention to detail and professionalism. She will NEVER compromise the integrity of her client’s hair simply to “get the job done.” She’ll explain in detail how to achieve the look you want without damaging the hair unnecessarily (but really it’s never necessary if done right like she does lol). She’s extremely professional and punctual. I’ve never had to wait for her unlike other stylists I hear about. Anyway, all this to say, I love her and wouldn’t change a thing! :)

I have been going to Nicole for almost two years now and there is no one else I would trust with my hair! She always makes sure to recommend what is best for my hair and how to keep it healthy. She is such a sweet person and works really hard to make sure my hair color or cut is exactly like I want!

Nicole is the BEST! It took me a long time to find a stylist that takes the time EVERY SINGLE VISIT to look at my color and the health of my hair before proceeding. She is so helpful and honest as we decide on color, healthy products and a haircut. I always feel confident in her chair that I am going to leave her salon with the outcome I expect. If you are looking for a stylist, book an appointment with Nicole. You will love her!
Linda L.
I only get my hair done with Nicole she’s the best. Always gives me the results I want and is always honest with me. Not only does my hair look great but healthy wouldn’t change her. 100% recommend.

Where do I even begin with my girl Nicky! I’ve been going with her for YEARS. I’m one of her OG clients, friend. I’ve tried maybe another stylist or two but I’ve always gone back to her and I’ve remained with her. She’s extremely knowledgeable and super passionate with her work. I always leave her chair beyond satisfied and trust me I’ve been through every stage with my hair. Sitting in her chair is relaxing and at the same time it’s like having girl talk with our chismes haha. I’ve brought and will continue recommending her to people I know. Love you Nicky Jam!

What a life saver! Before coming to Nicole My hair was lifeless, I’ve honestly been to so many hairstylist before her in someway they all had messed up my hair. So when I came to Nicole
Tracy F.
I love Nicole so much! I have never met someone who is always so straight up about what’s best for your hair. I have been with Nicole for 6 years and she has never disappointed! So thankful for her!

I will follow Nicole ANYWHERE to get my hair done by her! After moving to the Charlotte metro area in 2004 and not having any success with stylists (or color out of a box), I was given Nicole's name and glowing reference from a friend a couple of years ago. I LOVE what she does to my hair - the cut, color, style, treatments...all of it!! I am Latina with dark, long, thick, uneven curl that I have to get re-touched every month to cover gray and I also have highlighted. She is amazing with color! She is extremely knowledgeable and knows hair. She is honest and will tell you if a color or cut is attainable with your hair type - unlike other stylists I have encountered that tell you what you want to hear all the while taking your money and ruining your hair. Not Nicole! My hair actually looks better than it has ever been - EVER! I always get compliments after my visits with Nicole. But most importantly I feel beautiful after getting my hair done - every time.

Let me start by saying that Nicole is exceedingly knowledgeable in what she does. She only uses great quality products, has extremely competitive prices and is extremely conscientious. Nikki is an all around amazing hairdresser. I always get complements on my hair. It’s always such a great experience going to her. In short, she’s the best!!!

Nikki has been my colorist for several years she always gives me a great style and is so personable. I love coming to get my hair done and always walk out feeling great!!She’s helped me style my hair long, go short and then back towards long. She is very knowledgeable, and super sweet. I always get compliments on my hair, I always recommend her to friends/ family She is the best !
Diana A.
Mi have been going to Nicole for about 4 years now. She doesn’t get to “Scissor happy”, if you can’t tell I’ve had some bad hair cuts in the past. Nicole is the only one I let touch my hair now. She gives you the style you want in a realistic manner. She is great at any of her services, she will always make your hair look as healthy as possible. I recommend her for any of her services, she is a great and skilled hairstylist.

Three words to describe Nicole Medina: Professional, Attentive, Skilled! I've been a loyal client of Nicole's for about two years now. I was referred to her by a friend after a series of terrible salon experiences...and I haven't been to another stylist since! She is a professional in every sense of the word: she is knowledgeable about her craft, maintains high standards of cleanliness, truly listens to her clients wants, and does not rush or "cut" corners but takes her time to make each client happy. I came to her wanting to maintain healthy hair while growing it out and to have my hair colored for the very first time! I was super nervous but Nicole put me at ease and I loved the way it turned out. Nicole did balayage color over a year ago and I still get compliments on my color even after it has grown out about 6 inches! She has also helped me grow my hair longer than it has been in years by only trimming what is necessary to keep it healthy and only adding layers when I ask. I have moved every year for the past 6 years and I have never found a decent stylist that I could trust until I found Nicole! I no longer live in the Charlotte area but I will continue to make the trip to have my hair done by Nicole! You should definitely book your appointment today ;-)

I am a 62 year old that have been with Nikkie since I moved to Charlotte 8 years ago when she was as just starting out. Started with long black hair and over time many styles to go with my age. Now I have all white hair after growing it out without color and I get so many compliments on my short sazzy style and healthy hair all thanks to Nikkie's advice and care! Leaving the state but will return often to see my grandkids and get my hair done. Try her just once, I guarantee you will not go anywhere else!

It wasn't until I found Nikki that my hair finally had life. I have very thick hair and no one knew how to style it correctly or they would take hours and tons of money from me. Nikki is so good at what she does, all my cuts have been fab. Only person I trust cutting my bags too, again thick hair ppl problems. First time I dyed it it was with her bc I was too scared someone else would do it bad since my hair is very dark. Idk how she did it but she was able to get my hair to a lovely ash brown thay blended beautifully. I posted a hair of my pic in Pinterest and it got repinned like 1000 times!!! So yeah! Nikki is the best!! - Priscila Sánchez

Nicole has been the best thing that has happened to my hair! I definitely believe in a "life" cut (the haircut you could have for life) and I have found mine thanks to her! She also has been the first and only person I have trusted to do color on my hair. She is great! She took my hair from a dark black/brown to a beautiful caramel using her balayage techniques. I will never see another stylist! I Definitely recommend Nicole!
