• TAMMY IZBICKI — SALON OWNER

    I am a hairdresser. It’s not what I do for a living. It’s who I am.

    In the 18 years that I have been making the world a more beautiful place, I have had many titles: Young Upstart; Passionate Newbie; Young Businesswoman; Accomplished Colorist; Small Business Owner. Then I became a Regional Platform Artist for Redken, traveling all over the Western United States to teach advanced color and business skills to others in my industry.

    But no matter what, for me it’s about the hair. It’s about how much I love making a woman stand a bit taller when she leaves. Giving her a place to feel heard and cared for. Having her look in the mirror and smile at what she sees.

    I am a hairdresser. It’s who I am.

  • KELSEY NICOL — SALON STYLIST

    As a kid, I used to cut hair for a lot of girls I knew in school. Now that I look back, that seems a little weird, but I never got any complaints! My sister always indulged my hair obsession, too, letting me do whatever to her hair. I guess she could see I was onto something: by the time I was in high school, I was on my way to becoming licensed as a hairdresser.

    Since my move to California, I’m learning so much—techniques, trends, driving on the 405 every morning—and it’s perfect, because I love adding new skills to my repertoire, and introducing clients to some of my favorites, like braids. When clients look in the mirror and tell me they look great, and walk out the door with a little extra sparkle than they had before, that’s just the best feeling.

    If I won the lottery, I would still do nails. I love it that much. It doesn’t feel like a job! It’s fun. I get to be an artist and connect with people in a way that’s really rare: I face them, I hold their hand, and I form really deep connections with my clients.

    Education is important to me, and I like to stay ahead of the curve with nail trends. For instance, I’ve been doing gels for 15 years now! And my clients always get the inside scoop.

    Doing nails is an honor for me that, even after 27 years, puts a smile on my face every single day.
