A. Nicole Styles
A graduate of Atlanta Beauty & Barber Academy, the founder of A. Nicole Styles—Alexis Nicole Howell—puts her professional training to work. She specializes in snipping stylish cuts, altering strands' hues with color treatments, curling or silk pressing natural locks, and gluing or sewing in unprocessed Brazilian extensions. The stylist doesn't stop at hair, though. Alexis applies makeup or extends eyelashes until they're long enough to send long-distance butterfly kisses.
