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.

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!

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.

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!
