About Me

Nikki Snell

I feel it is important to listen to the specific needs of each and every client, and I strive to come up with a style that is specifically designed and customized for you. A stylist is doing a disservice to his or her client, if they give a high maintenance color or cut to someone that normally spends no more than 15 minutes on their hair each day and only gets to the salon 3 times a year. I can do just about anything when it comes to hair, but if the hair won't do it, don't ask it to. The key is doing what will work best for you, your hair and your daily routine. One must communicate prior to pulling out the scissors. I also believe that it is imperative to take the time to make sure that clients are given the proper knowledge,  tools, and products to complete your look at home. I consider myself  successful  when you leave my chair feeling better about yourself and the image that you project to others.

I have a strong drive and passion to do what I do. I love being a hairstylist,  and I believe this shows, not only in my work, but also with the bonds that I have built with my clientele over the years.

Hair cutting and coloring is an ever-evolving process. I make the time and enjoy participating in all the continuing education I can get my hands on. These new techniques are then passed on to you... so getting bored is never an option.

I work by appointment only, and book up to 6 weeks  in advance, this way your next appointment is already set and making the time to Indulge yourself becomes a priority. I will work with you to schedule a time that is convenient for you. To accommodate  busy schedules, I have extended business hours to include 
late nights on weekdays, Tuesday thru Friday. Now, getting a look to match your individuality and lifestyle has never been easier.

I am a licensed cosmetologist, and a proud member of the North County Business Network, and the Encinitas Business Exchange and have received honors for my work with seniors and community outreach and volunteer work .

Some personal background tidbits..

Prior to becoming a hairstylist I was a Military Police Officer in the US Army. The military taught me discipline, time management, and that no matter how bad I was getting yelled at, it was impossible for me to keep a straight face! Stationed in Germany and Virginia I enjoyed traveling, but I am a California born native, and love living near the ocean. I also spent 9 years as a Veterinary Technician, and still have a soft spot in my heart for all creatures. It was  after a near fatal accident that I re- evaluated my life and career, and decided to pursue my dream of being my own boss and doing what I love. It was then that I took a leap of faith and enrolled in Cosmetology school.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband and adult sons. I also train and compete in a variety of  Dog Sports, to include Conformation, Obedience, Barn Hunt, and Lure Coursing. Both of my Akita's are Therapy Dogs and we've spent many hours doing public education and community events. I love photography, editing, writing and exploring the outdoors.
"My belief starts with passion, risk, luck and people. Surround yourself with the best and there is no limit to what you can accomplish."
