Hi there friends! My name is Nicole Ficke and I’ve been a lover of hair for as long as I can remember. I believe that there is something so special about making others not only look, but also feel their best.
A little hair history about me: I attended cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell the School Jersey Shore and graduated in 2013, and I have continued perfecting my craft ever since. I believe that the best stylists never stop learning, so staying up to date with new techniques has always been important to me!
I have always been drawn to sun-kissed, low maintenance color, and that’s why I became a balayage specialist early in my career. I spend most of my days behind the chair giving my clients the perfect seamless balayage, or creating bright blondes with foiling techniques that create an easy grow-out. My main goal is to always create a color that not only looks beautiful when you leave my chair, but also continues to look beautiful for months to come!
While I specialize mainly in balayage and foiling techniques, I offer many other services including a large variety of coloring services, haircuts, event styling, and my speciality beach wave blowout! I have an overall natural style and I love bringing out and emphasizing features that are already so beautiful about my clients. I look forward to seeing you soon here at Studio on Willow!
My love of hair began over ten years ago after leaving business school in New York City. Since then, I have made it my passion. I have received certifications from L'Oreal Expert, Global Keratin, Kerastase, Foundations of Balayage, Arrojo American Wave, and Advanced Extension Brands. I also have an expanded skill set with various hair types, and am always striving for more. I am proud to be able to give back to the community through volunteering and organizing local fundraising events. I believe that translates into my work. I am honored to start my journey at Studio on Willow with such a talented team. I'm ready to make your hair shine. Whether it is a color transformation or an event style, I'm here to help!
Hi! My name is Lindsey. I have been a hairstylist for 8+ years now. I have had a passion for hairstyling ever since I was young. My first salon job was Warren Tricomi, where I learned how to precision dry haircut and trained under master colorists. I specialize in all methods of permanent extensions: tape-ins, sew-in wefts, beads, and keratin bonds. I also specialize in bridal hair, braiding, and event styling. My profession has allowed me to travel, providing me the opportunity to service dignitary clientele. I take great pride in my work and truly love what I do every day, my work will absolutely speak for itself.
Hi! My name is Megan. I have been working in salons for the better part of my life. If you ask me, I have the best career in the world. I love making my customers look and feel beautiful, and helping them express who they are with their hair. I love the connections that I build with my clients. I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.
While I strive to meet any of your hair needs, I specialize in baby lights, balayage, corrective color, and fantasy colors. I am also passionate about hair cutting and styling. I have a niche for men’s haircuts and bridal work. My favorite part about working with my brides is when I secure the veil in place. The bride and I always both shed a tear or two.
I do believe that education is the core of our industry. I have been a proud Loreal Professionnel artist for the last 5 years, traveling the country to learn and share the latest techniques and trends.
When I’m not at work, I’m with my big family. We have a blended family with FIVE kids. Call me crazy, but I love taking them to the beach. The creative side in me can always get into a fun craft... and I always enjoy a good book and a good glass of wine.
I can’t wait to welcome you to our new salon home!
Hi I’m Lacee! I have been in the beauty industry since 2001 and I always knew this would be my craft! My passion is to create beautiful everyday hair. My customized foilayge technique creates the most natural lived-in color for a low maintenance upkeep. I do believe education is the tool for growth as the trends are forever changing. I take pride in listening to my guests' hair goals, making them a reality, and LOVE having multiple bosses in my chair daily! Making people feel beautiful on the outside is just a small part of why I love my craft. Each day is a different adventure. Making a connection with people that I wouldn’t otherwise have met has become such a value to me.
Hi there! My name is Tori and I’ve been in the hair industry for about eight years and what a joy it has been! Hair has always been a passion of mine that continues to grow each and every day. I specialize in razor cuts along with traditional scissor cutting. When it comes to color, I specialize in baby light, highlighting that gives you a very natural, sun-kissed look. It truly is a privilege to get work in an industry that allows us the opportunity to make people feel and look their best. I so look forward to meeting you and making your hair dreams a reality here at the Studio on Willow!
Hi I'm Francesca! I graduated from the Salon Professional Academy in 2018 and have such a passion and love for hair.
I am extremely family-oriented and come from a huge family for which I am truly blessed!
For my whole life, I struggled with frizz and having extremely curly hair. Discovering smoothing systems changed my hair life forever. Because of that, I strive to find all my curly-haired clients the smoothing system that will suit them best. I also have a passion for color, balayage, highlights, and ensuring my clients achieve the blonde of their dreams, while preserving the integrity of their hair. I also do layered and texturized cuts.
I’m so excited to kickstart my hair journey and will always continue to educate myself! I look forward to meeting everyone and giving you your dream hair!
