Patient, perfecting, and professional. Nicholas collaborated with me on what would be best for my African American, long hair. My hair was 7" of natural hair, 6" of perm - which was transitioning out of braids and in need of grey coverage. All i can say is transformative.
I have never been this emotional in a good way about my hair. Nicholas mixed the magic and taught at the same time. The color looked so good I forgot that I needed to be styled. But then he took it to the next level and chose all the right product, tools and cut. The cut was so good I didn't need it curled, and the lenght was still there. He briefed me on care and answered my questions. It was sleek, bouncing, - I literally looked younger when I left. It was drastically different without being overtly trendy. Magnificent.
What an amazing salon! Came here today desperately needing a change after having a baby two months ago. Nicholas really knows how to wow his clientele and he was absolutely amazing.
Nicholas took his time and really perfected my color. Coming in, my hair was damaged and brassy but leaving Nicholas's chair my hair felt brightened and healthy with the exact color and tone I requested. He then cut my hair and I absolutely love it! One of the best cuts I have ever received! Nicholas took his time and really perfected everything. I will definitely be returning!
I highly recommend Nicholas if you're looking for a great cut! I recently moved to Des Moines and was in search of a good hairstylist, as I had went to the same person for years prior. I'm pretty picky about my cuts and it's always hard to find someone that does exactly what I'm hoping for.
I went to three different salons before I went to Nicholas and I'm so happy I finally found someone I like. He cut my hair and it honestly may have been one of the best haircuts I've ever had! And I do not say that often. He's great with long hair and listens to what you want. I've seen some of his work on other lengths in addition to men's cuts and they look amazing.
Nicholas has been cutting my hair for almost five years now - I highly recommend him! In addition to always leaving the salon feeling like I've had the best haircut of my life, he is very good at understanding what I want, even when I can't articulate what I am looking for. Nicholas is precise every step of the way: from the clean cut to the fades. He is truly great at what he does!
In addition, the salon itself is very modern, clean and inviting. The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. This salon is definitely a gem!
