Meet Nikki

Hair Extension Specialist and Educator of 16 Years

As a Hair Extension Specialist and Educator with over 16 years of experience, I bring a unique blend of skills and passions to my craft. Beyond being a stylist, I embrace various roles in life - from an accepting Aquarius to an animal lover, writer, and intuitive soul.


In my journey, I've discovered that helping people feel confident about their hair is my true calling. I believe that when we feel good about our appearance, we radiate positivity, creating a ripple effect in the world. This philosophy is the driving force behind my dedication to hair extensions.


My journey as a hair extension specialist began with a simple belief: when people feel good about how they look, they act how they feel. This mantra fuels my passion for helping clients achieve their desired look and boost their self-confidence. Whether it's through meticulously applied extensions or empowering education, my goal is to ensure my clients leave feeling empowered and beautiful.


In my downtime, you'll often find me exploring nature or engaging in introspective activities like reading and stargazing. I draw inspiration from the world around me, incorporating elements of nature, art, and philosophy into my work.


Passion for Empowerment

My passion lies in my clients' confidence and well-being. I am dedicated to creating transformative experiences where individuals not only leave with stunning hair but also with a renewed sense of self-assurance. From consultations to styling sessions, my focus is always on uplifting my guests and helping them shine both inside and out.


Favorite Things:

  • Book: A Court of Thorns and Roses

  • Movie: Adult World, Only Lovers Left Alive

  • Game: Red Dead Redemption 2, Pokemon Go

  • Show: Schitt's Creek


Thank you for considering me for your hair transformation journey. I look forward to the opportunity to bring your vision to life and help you feel confident and empowered every step of the way.

Hair Extensions by Nikki

In 2010 I created the NSBW technique after having clients reach out about their experience with thread breakage on their sew-in method. My goal was to create a method free of glue and thread to eliminate tedious issues. I had a wonderful response from the clients about NSBW, and all of my clients switched to NSBW. 

Since selling Glo and going solo, I have been continuing to work on clients. I currently accept clients in Citrus Heights California. I'm also putting more energy into teaching and training. I love helping people grow their business and add on services that help both clients and stylists.

I also became a certified Plasma Fibroblast technician in 2022! Plasma fibroblast is a non surgical skin tightening method that achieves amazing results. Check my Instagram for the latest updates on Plasma Fibroblast


Glo Salon

When I was 21, I opened Glo Salon which served Downtown Fullerton, CA for 5 years. Glo Salon started out with two chairs, and grew into a 12 chair salon with a facial room, nail room, and tanning room. We won Yelp's #1 Orange County Salon for 5 years, and had an amazing clientele.

I decided to sell Glo when I felt that I had learned all I needed to from the experience of owning a large salon. The stress of running such a large operation was causing me to ask "Why?" a lot. I sold Glo to Ajay Popoff, lead singer of Lit and part owner of Slidebar in Downtown Fullerton. Moving forward solo, a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders, and I could connect with my clients like I had in the beginning, one on one.


Cosmetology Instructor

Milan Institute

Conduct engaging lectures, demos, and workshops covering hair styling, coloring, skincare, and nail care.

Fullerton College


Advanced Training Hair Extensions

I was blessed to attend Cosmetology school through the ROP program as a junior in high school. I graduated high school early at 17, and shortly after graduated cosmetology school at 18. Being a licensed cosmetologist at 18 allowed me to start my career early, and I'm so thankful that my high school counselor recommended cosmetology.
