About this pro

Hello,

My name is Nika. I am The Iron Lady. I am a licensed Cosmetologist that specializes in selling flat irons, Natural hair, color, and extensions. I've been doing hair for 7 years. I love trying new hair styles. I have experience in clipper cuts as well I am certified to lace fronts, sew ins, and closure sew ins. I'm very honest. If there is a style you want and it's not the best for your hair, I will let you know. If there is a style you want Me to do and I CAN NOT do it, I will let you know. I love taking care of hair and educating about hair as well. I would be honored to do your hair service. I travel to clients as well. I have alopecia clients that DO NOT like to come to the Salon and I respect it and cater to them. Thanks for your time.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Make sure you get a well educated pro to take care of. Years of experience always helps as well, but if you get someone who hasn't had years of experience as long as they are honest about what they do and they can educate you, then you should be fine.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Customers should think about what they can realistically afford. Think about if they can keep up with the style and/or cut that they want. Can you afford to get a service that requires maintenance often. Be open minded and ask whatever you want about hair. You should not be nervous about asking a stylist what you want to know.
