I started my career in hairdressing when I became a Saturday girl in a Beccles salon at the age of 14. I loved the experience and by the time I’d finished high school, I knew becoming a hairdresser was the career path for me.
My creative personality and eye for design seemed to suit the hairdressing industry perfectly and this has since been realised with a career spanning more than 12 years. By the age of 19 I was a salon manager and just a few years later I became the owner of what would become Cabello Hair and Beauty.
Over the years I’ve received advanced training from a variety of renowned hair styling experts. This has included NVQ training at the John Olivers Hairdressing Group and a comprehensive creative cutting and colouring course from The Wella Studio in London. All of which has ensured my skills are both up-to-date and the best they can be for the benefit of my clients. I also have expertise in bridal hair, using clip-in extensions, hair pieces and hair accessories.
I love making people feel fantastic. Being able to quickly find the best style solution for someone based on their face shape, skin tone and lifestyle is very satisfying indeed. This taps into my philosophy that every salon experience should be unique and tailored to the individual, so the client leaves feeling absolutely wonderful.
When not in the salon I love to spend time with my loved ones including my little dog.
Nicola has been with Cabello since the beginning. With over 12 years of experience, she has a skilled pair of hands and advanced knowledge when it comes to hair styling. After an apprenticeship with the John Olivers Hairdressing Group at the age of 16, she went on to gain valuable training experience with Ambassador of Schwarzkopf and Toni & Guy.
Nicola is very passionate about the creativity involved in the colouring, styling and cutting of ladies’ and gent’s hair. Her personal ethos - of providing a relaxing, enjoyable and friendly service which results in beautiful hair suited to the client’s lifestyle and personality - is in tune with Cabello’s as a whole.
When away from the salon, Nicola loves to renovate properties and spend time with her cute little puppy.
