Nate of Beauty by Nate reinvents clients from the neck up with a variety of hair-care services. Appointments begin with a quick discussion of what a client wants in their new ‘do, be it long sweeping layers, a chic bob, or a comfortable nest for their pet robin. From there, Nate uses scissors, color treatments, and relaxers to transform tired looks into chic, new styles. Beyond haircuts and color treatments, he can also smooth curls and battle frizz with original or express Keratin Smoothing treatments.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I was once donating my time for a charity event. The event was to help women with breast cancer. As I finished my guest's hair, I noticed that she was crying. She said that she never thought that she would feel pretty again until that day. We hugged and cried together. THAT was the best feedback.
