Stylist Nikki Ransford has been involved in nearly every aspect of the salon industry, from teaching at beauty schools in San Diego to styling hair for charity events and fashion shows with Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and Nordstrom.

Although Nikki has almost 10 years of experience as a stylist, she never stops learning. Keeping up with the industry through ongoing education is at the very top of her priorities—in the course of her career, she's taken classes through Aveda, Schwarzkopf, and Bumble and bumble.

But that's just one strand in Posh Salon's ample bouffant. Clients may request an invigorating facial, nailcare, or custom bodywork, courtesy of the the salon's licensed massage therapist.
