My name is Nicole Kartio. I grew up in rural North Dakota. Later attended college at the University of North Dakota - Grand Forks majoring in fine arts. A few years after college I moved with my future husband to Minnesota where we eventually settled in the Minneapolis area. We married & raised two children together. I spent my time as a freelance artist, graphic designer & a stay at home Mom. When my kids were older, middle school age, my husband encouraged me to go back to school for cosmetology. I was ready for a career change, something with a bit more human interaction & less screen time. So I did. I graduated from the Aveda Institute - Minneapolis in early 2014. Since then I have continued my education with in person & online classes, seminars, hair shows and on the job training.
We moved to Gilbert the summer of 2019. The heat is an adjustment but no more snow, ice & freezing cold temperatures are divine. In my spare time I like to watch movies, read, spend time with friends & family, and enjoy the outdoors (when it's not blazing hot).
I specialize in a variety of blonding techniques that include balayage, ombre/sombre, highlights & natural gray transitioning. I enjoy working with color & even doing perms. Really I just love all things hair.
With me you will find a relaxing one on one experience in a private salon suite. You will never be double booked, only exception to that is if you want to share an appointment with a friend or family member. I am easy going, here to listen & help you get to your hair goals. My clients are like extended family.
