Nicole first discovered her adoration and passion for the beauty industry from a very young age. Born and raised in New Jersey, she has always loved everything having to do with art, colors, hair and crafts. Growing up helping at her grandmother's salon, she learned the basics and began doing her friend's hair very young. She received extensive training and became licensed back in 2004. Since then, she has constantly sought out new techniques, trends, styles and education to perfect her trade. Nicole is a certified color specialist and a precision hair cutter. She specializes in bridal or any special occasion updo styles and hair extensions. Whether it's a complete eccentric transformation, an impossible color correction or just a simple refresh, her attention to detail and passion for the field makes each person in her chair the priority! Her joy comes from her client's joy, and the smile on their face after a visit. When Nicole isn't revamping someone's hair, you can almost always find her trying out new recipes to cook, reading a book, or painting a canvas.
Samantha grew up in Connecticut an hour away from New York City. Her passion for hair has been lifelong, getting her start in beauty at age 15 when she decided to work her way through Kevyn Aucoin’s book Making Faces (often using herself or her 10 year old sister as a model). After years of doing hair and makeup for her friends, Samantha received her initial training through Paul Mitchell Academy where she later went on to receive a student stylist award from the Professional Beauty Association. After moving to New York City, Samantha completed SBL's extensive apprentice program along with advanced education from R+Co, Oribe, and Wella. Samantha loves working with curly hair, redheads, classic bobs and modern texturized haircuts. She would describe her hair style as streamlined but eclectic, feminine but dark, sexy but gritty. When she’s not working, you can find her on set, at a house show, or meditating.

Quinn began his career at the Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in Scottsdale, Arizona and was the place where he found the spark for his artistic talent. It’s a passion, he admits, that runs in his family and attributes his gifts to his mother who is also an accomplished nail designer. Quinn worked as an apprentice under the guidance of a local hair artist and supplemented his artistic skills with education he received from the top hair shows in Las Vegas, Long Beach and Beverly Hills. He was also active in the start-up venture in the family business, Sugar Skull Salon, in Cave Creek, a rural town north of Scottsdale, becoming the managing partner since its inception. Quinn enjoys spending time with his two brothers, and working out at the gym. When he’s in Arizona, he likes to hike and spend time with his beloved Coco Chanel, a Norfolk Terrier and of course, his mom and dad.
