After working many years in a traditional salon setting, we were ready for something new. We wanted to offer an upgraded, more comfortable experience for our guests. And so, CoraBella was born! We are thrilled to provide a one-on-one experience that we find is beneficial in so many ways. It allows us more privacy to focus on our guests and their needs and provides a more tranquil environment for your essential self-care time. It also allows us to be much more in control of the safety and sanitation of our environment, which is so vital in our current climate.
Our goal is to indulge our guests with excellent service, a fantastic experience, and beautiful results. We are delighted to share our vision and CoraBella, with our clients, friends, and family!
Where did "CoraBella" come from?
Nikki has been a stylist since 2003. She enjoys all of the services she offers, but updos are her favorite. She has styled hundreds of clients for weddings, prom, and other special occasions. Updos give her the opportunity to use her creativity and artistry to transform your hair into a unique work of art. Nikki has also won The Knot's Best of Weddings award for her work for three years in a row so far.
Nikki graduated Scot Lewis School in 2003. Her formative training includes a 3-day haircolor master class at the Redken Exchange in New York. The knowledge Nikki gained at "Color and Know Why" changed how she colors hair to this day. It's given her a complete understanding of how color works on each individual's hair from the inside out, taking the guesswork out of formulation.
An appointment with Nikki is a comfortable, collaborative experience. You will feel heard when you are in her chair. From a total makeover to routine maintenance, her objective is to fulfill your wishes - no judgement.
When she is not behind the chair, Nikki is a stay at home mom to two beautiful children 7 year old Camden and 5 year old Cora.
Shannon graduated from the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis in 2009. Since completing her schooling, she has attended numerous continuing education classes in cutting, coloring, and updos, further broadening her abilities behind the chair. She also completed courses with Vizio Makeup Academy, to advance her skills in makeup artistry.
Her passion is in updos and special-occasion styling. Whether you are looking for an all-up, half-up, or down style, she will take your inspiration photo and turn it into a unique style that works for you. In addition to styling, she loves makeup and all things color, especially lived-in blonde, balayage, and vivid custom coloring.
Her friendly, easy-going nature and special listening skills make each client feel at ease in her chair. Her goal is to make each client feel beautiful and leave with a renewed sense of confidence.
