In 2004 Nick began what has now become a lifelong journey through the beauty and personal grooming industry. He started behind the front desk with Toni&Guy while still a senior in high school, quickly moving into a management position. However, this was just for the experience of working in an actual salon. His goal was to work behind the chair. So, he got his cosmetology license through the Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy in Dallas, TX.
Shortly thereafter, he would go on to complete their cutting and teaching apprenticeships, along with in depth advanced cutting education through his participation with the Toni&Guy Junior Artistic Team. Before his time with Toni&Guy was over, he was regularly working on their national photographic campaigns, teaching both basic in-salon and advanced hairdressing, and offering killer cutting services for his clients all over the Dallas area.
After leaving Toni&Guy, he would go on to complete training in advanced hair color theory, application, and balayage application with L’Oreal Professional; along with more hair color education from Schwarzkopf Professional and Wella Professional over the years to further round out his training. Nick was now able to offer more than just the best in cutting and styling services, now he could offer the best in color services as well!
In 2019 he moved to Colorado where he met his wonderful husband. He spends most of his leisure time with him, and their two pets; their 10 year old cat, Sascha, and their puppy, Henry. They love to hit the trails with Henry in tow for a day of exploring, or spend time watching movies and series of the horror, fantasy, scifi, experimental, superhero, and/or art-house variety.
Since his journey began so many years ago, he has worked in virtually every facet of the salon business from education to management, photographic work and hair shows to the daily grind behind the chair. He comes to latherhouse from Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, where he was able to focus and hone his masculine grooming and clipper cutting skills coming out of the pandemic in a new city.
He’s at his best when he’s working on killer looks; edgy, big southern, glam, natural texture, clipper cuts, mullets, pixies, bobs, & curly hair. Let's not forget color; tints, highlights, blonding, vivids, balayage and keratin smoothing treatments.
He looks forward to meeting!
