Having trimmed and fashioned hair for seven years, Nikki Johansen knows the importance of personal touches. Every client to sit in her chair receives a scalp massage with his or her shampoo and conditioning treatment, as well as tips for re-creating the new 'dos at home. Nikki specializes in shorter cuts with meticulous detailing, and her training covers treatments from perms to keratin smoothing procedures. She also dyes locks in bold colors, positions foils for flattering highlights, and invents special styles for occasions, such as glamorous updos for bridesmaids complete with extra arms for bouquet catching.
Dessert isn’t the first thing to come to mind when you think of hair treatments, but that’s exactly what you’ll get when visiting Caramel Beauty International.

And the care that goes into making these desserts is mirrored by her choice of salon products—all of which prioritize maintaining or restoring the health of hair.
