Originally an interior designer and color coordinator, Nisha realized she was meant to design hair when her cousin's makeup artist fell ill the day of her wedding and Nisha stepped in to save the day. She already had the fundamentals??her interior design experience taught her to listen to the client, visualize the whole picture, and customize. It's now 20 years since that wedding and Nisha's still at it at Nisha's Salon. She's hand picked a team of aestheticians and stylists, and together they design and color hair in a way that embellishes each client's individual features such as the shape of their face and the color of their eyes. They also offer facials, waxing, and makeup.
iBrow & Hair Studio's aestheticians spruce up their clients' appearances with treatments that run the gamut from basic haircuts to deep-hydrating facials.

The staff can also mix and match these treatments into a number of different packages, including bridal services.
