Soon after graduating high school, Nicole attended The Avenda Institute in Minneapolis, MN to earn her Cosmetology degree. She knew the industry was the right fit for her and immediately enrolled in the advanced training program at Ficocello's salon to enrich her education. During this advanced training, Nicole honed her coloring and formulation techniques while also greatly enhancing her cutting and styling skills. The educational investment paid off as she developed a loyal clientele and earned her spot on the floor as a full time stylist.
As her skills developed further, Nicole was chosen to be a Wella Brand Educator which allows her to share her talents and love of the industry with other hairdressers across the country. She chose to continue her career at ViVo after moving to the area with her husband, John, in late 2014.
Traveling, educating others and continually learning have proven to be a great asset as Nicole has firmly established herself as a top stylist. Away from the salon, she loves to spend time with friends and explore the Ozarks outdoors with her husband.
