Born and raised in Michigan, Nicole Brown moved to Los Angeles to study cosmetology at the Vidal Sassoon Academy, where she discovered her passion for hair design. After extensive training in LA and Chicago, she worked in the Orange County and San Francisco Sassoons and worked her way up to Asst. Creative Director.
