Meet Nicole Hernandez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Hernandez.

Nicole, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I am Nicole Hernandez, have been licensed since August 2017. I started fresh out of school at a salon in Lake Elmo for a year, then onto chair renting in St Paul Park for about two years. Once I heard Cottage Grove was opening up a Salons by JC, I knew I had to jump on it. Being able to be on my own, be my own boss and really get to pursue my career in my dream way. I love being able to make people feel good and look good in my chair.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I would not say it’s been smooth but it has not been terrible. With it being my first time having my own studio, putting in the work of an interior designer and putting big cabinets and such together was definitely a lot more work than expected. Really knowing how I wanted my studio set up was one of the harder things to deal with but it has finally come together!

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a hairstylist, I do not feel like I specialize in any particular service. I love hair cutting, coloring, updos, hair treatments and facial waxing. I think being open to a lot of different services make me different from a lot of others than specializing in one parties category.

Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Growing up, I enjoyed playing dress up and playing with Barbie’s. I would cut the hair off my dolls for new styles and I would envelopes dress up my brother, just so I could play with make up!
