Protege stylist-Makeup artist
Nikki was born and raised in Douglasville, Ga. She graduated high school and went on to the University of West Georgia where she studied art. Nikki transferred to pursue a cosmetology degree, knowing that she wanted to work with her hands and flex her creative side she soon realized that doing hair and makeup was the perfect fit for her. While in school she utilized the Redken color and product line and worked at a local salon where she trained with Schwarzkopf and Pravana color. After finishing school and getting her license she moved to Knoxville, Tn where she dove into the cosmetic industry head first. Working for Lancome for a year, she felt unfullfilled and decided to move back to Atlanta to find her dream job doing hair and building a stellar clientele. She is excited to be a part of the Advanced Protege program at Soda Salon.
