Hair styling began calling to Cher Nelson at an early age, when she discovered her aptitude and passion for coiffing while doing her mother's hair. After two decades of snipping manes in others? salons, Cher decided to draw on her experience to become her own boss at Cher Nelson Hair Design. In the salon, decorated in vibrant and lively colors, Cher discusses new cuts at length with her clients before picking up the scissors, making sure she snips just the right amount, and gives relaxing scalp massages that ease the anxiety of parting with the friendly sparrows that frequently nest in overgrown tangles. A rotating selection of tunes pulse from the speaker, while the occasional buzz of the television sets the back drop for easy conversations in the laid-back salon. Meanwhile, Cher she snips clients' tresses, colors them with Pravana Chromasilk products, or relaxes their curls into smooth, straight cascades.
