NIKKI Wilson

Art Director / Owner

Nikki knew she wanted to do hair at age 14, and started practicing on her friends to rave reviews which fed her desire. Her formal education began many years ago with Pivot Point, then Vidal Sassoon, and Paul Mitchell for cutting techniques. She became an educator for, and assisted at Paul Mitchell hair shows. She was thrilled by the creative opportunities of hair color and set about taking many classes to sharpen her skills, first with L'Oreal and then Logics, where she became an educator and Master Colourist. Her first salon was in Virginia Beach, which flourished for 10 years before she moved to North Carolina in 1994 to become part of the Douglas Carroll Salon in Cary.  She attributes her time there with much of her personal growth as a designer learning Toni & Guy techniques and establishing long lasting industry friendships. When she opened Gel Salon in 2008, it was as her dream salon. She believes it's the simple things in life that mean the most. A warm welcome and to be treated with respect while having a style created for and tailored to your face and lifestyle. She is able to envision a cut and color that will flatter her guest, while being easy for them to maintain. She subscribes fully to the idea of; If you're not getting regular compliments on your hair, then you should be coming to her.
