ALEX-web.jpg

Coming from a life long passion for hair and a theater/ arts degree at the University of Central Oklahoma, Alex's career began to soar In January of 2007 where she began her career in hair at The Academy of Hair Design, a Vidal Sassoon connection school.  And so began her destiny! She received all the training of a Vidal Sassoon school and was hired at a top salon in Oklahoma City before she even graduated. During this time, she took specialty classes from industry leaders such as Sally Rogerson of S.R. Education and Tina Haukjaer Anderson of Sassoon (currently of Tim Hartley).
After seven successful years in Oklahoma, she took her career to Chicago where she cut, colored, styled, and became an educator over the course of three years.   
Now taking a leadership position at MANE Salon, her passion is still grounded in advanced education.  As trends and styles come and go, great stylists must arm themselves with the best and most advanced techniques to create works that stand out among the rest.
Her training includes classes by Ashley Norman, Sally Rogerson, Tina Haukjaer, Steven Moody, Robert Brown, Vidal Sassoon, Wella, Goldwell, L'Oréal, Tony&Guy, Bumble & Bumble, Kevin Murphy, Redkin and more.
Strong shapes, clean lines, precision placement, and advanced formulas/ styles that reflect each individual are where Alex excels.  Clients must only bring the canvas and she brings out all the possibilities and beauty within them.

KATIE-web.jpg

Born and raised in Chicago, I have always had a little flare to my personality. I finally knew how to put it to use when I discovered my love and passion for hair. I was totally able to be myself, express myself, and help others do the same! The best feeling in the world is making someone else feel better about themselves, inside and out! I am lucky enough to have a job where I get to do what I love every single day and make others smile along the way!

I have 7 years of experience in the industry training in Paul Mitchel, Redken, Bumble & Bumble, and Wella. My training at Wella allowed me to be flown out to the Wella studio in L.A. and receive extensive education, as well as being a Wella certified instructor.  I was able to have the opportunity to travel the country as a National Color Educator for the past two years. Being an educator has humbled me tremendously and really reassured how I am truly doing what I love. 

I have a special place in my heart for both men and women’s grooming. My background in various work spaces allows me to confidently provide services in modern and classic cuts, precision cuts, balayage, and fashion colors. My passion is color, the hair is blank canvas, and I am the artist! An experience with me in the salon provides a high quality service, great conversation, and a lot of laughs! I will always make sure you walk out the door with a smile on your face and a beautiful head of hair!

Beauty comes from within.

Nico’s leadership philosophy derives from a rich spiritual belief in positive energy and the laws of attraction.  Filling your heart with these beliefs affects your energy and the energy of the space you are within, spreading to fellow stylists and clients alike creating an environment that is not only uplifting in spirit, but creatively palpable, positive, and destined for greatness.  Nico strongly believes in the place that you work being a place you look forward to being at and find hard to leave because you abslutely love being there.  This philosophy makes it completely natural to touch people’s lives and not only make them beautiful on the outside but, more importantly, make them feel beautiful on the inside.

Having worked in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Chicago, Nico pulls together over a decade of experience working with clients from all walks of life and has seen many sides of the industry.  This rich and diverse experience has given Nico great insight into conturing an experience at MANE for stylists and clients.

“I believe beauty isn’t just an aesthetic, is a way of life.  It’s within you and when your wear your beauty on the inside, it shines through the outside and becomes contagious to those around you.  I look forward to you experiencing everything we have put into MANE salon.  Peace and love.”
