Nicole Hawkins 
owner/ Artistic Stylist

I completed my training in Las Vegas, and continued my education at 3 salons across Southern California as an assistant. I also learned extensive product knowledge while working as a Customer Service Representative for Sexy Hair Concepts .


Licensed in 3 states, I have been an artist in the industry for 14 years. In 2014 I opened Refuge ( a Suite Escape ) for my guests after searching to find an atmosphere and experience I could only tailor make and provide myself. Refuge is a small boutique salon suite that was created to be an escape from the chaos of life.


I specialize in Color, Up Work/ Styling, and I am also a certified Hot Heads Extension Artist. In 2015 I have added Educator to my title, as I am educating for Z.One Concept, through Professional Salon Concepts. Whether it is a new do you are after, or the perfect style for a special occasion I strive to provide an experience that will not only make you look good, but feel great as well. I look forward to seeing you in my chair!
