Nadia approaches hairstyling as a chance to use her natural creativity and training as a professional artist, whether her clients have a precise intention or present her with the opportunity to guide them, she uses hair as a medium for expression. Over the past 10 years she has learned that while we sculpt and color with a clear vision, it is essential to let the hair tell you what to do. Some of her specialties include using shears, razors, and clippers to achieve precision cuts, whether you are going for funky asymmetrical styles, long blended layers, or manageable curls; colors of all sorts; and dreadlocks / dread perms. She understands that communication and education are the keys to showcasing her abilities as a stylist and helping clients recreate their desired look out of the salon
