Nikki had been a stylist for about a year and a half when Sarah began working at the station next to hers. After working together side by side for the next 13 years, it was only natural for them to take the next step in their careers together. While you may not see them in the studio at the same time, running CoraBella will always be a collaborative effort.
Our goal is to indulge our guests with great service, an amazing experience and beautiful results. We are so thrilled to share our vision, and CoraBella, with our clients, friends, and family!
Where did CoraBella come from?
Nikki has been a stylist since 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.
Nikki 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.
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 6 year old Camden and 3 year old Cora.
Sarah is one of those stylists who can look at your hair, ask some questions, and give you immediate thoughts and ideas on what would look amazing on you. This talent comes from her years of experience since becoming a cosmetologist in 2003.
Sarah decided to become a cosmetologist because she is passionate about helping people look and feel their best. While she loves focusing on your total look of cut and color combined, she is most passionate about color. "Color is so important and is truly my favorite part of what we are trying to accomplish because it makes the biggest difference."
Additionally, Sarah will spend time showing you how to achieve the "salon look" at home so you can recreate it between salon visits. She can't wait to meet you!
