Nicole has been my hairdresser for over 25 years. I have followed her all over town because I don't trust anyone else to work on my extremely thin curly hair. Not only is she a great colorist but she always knows what cut to give me depending on my mood :-) I'm always receiving lots of compliments on my highlights and cut. She has become quite the entrepreneur...running her own shop and is now selling boutique items such as Lularoe, which she has an awesome selection to chose from. Of course I had to buy something because everything is so stinking cute!! I never leave there empty handed. She also sells awesome jewelry, body and hair products! Perfect place to shop for gifts or yourself. She truly is the bomb...I am so proud of her!!

Where do I begin?! Nicole has been my stylist and friend for 10 years. She is amazing at color and only uses the best products. I receive compliments on my color daily � The salon's boutique has so many eclectic gift ideas and I can't wait to shop her Lularoe collection !!! �. She's always five steps ahead of competition. Most of all, when you walk in the door, you can feel the energy and experience the best customer service. Everyone is talking, singing to the music and smiling! I highly recommend you stop by to shop the boutiques and meet Nicole in person! Happy shopping �

Empire is the best and I am blessed to have Nicole as my hair stylist and friend. I always love my hair and get compliments everywhere I go for the cut and the color. I am currently in the middle of getting chemotherapy and although I am not going to lose all my hair, it has gotten thinner. Nicole knew what to do and my hair looks great and she helped me feel great. Love her products and the salon and love sweet, funny and talented Nicole! Thanks for keeping me looking and feeling good!

Nicole is absolutely fantastic. She's been doing my hair for years, and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else. She's been there through every style change, and has always known exactly what to do. I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful stylist like Nicole-not to mention she's an all around fantastic person who makes the time in the chair fly by. Stopping at the salon is a must do whenever I'm in town! Highly recommend checking it out.

I couldn't trust anyone more with my hair. It always looks amazing & I actually just tell her do what you think is best now, she's that good that I know it will be incredible no matter what. Nicole makes you feel so at home and comfortable that it's a break away to just relax. Not only does her sparkling personality & amazing conversation make you so at peace, she now has the most amazing boutique to shop in while you process!!! She has the best products & jewelry ever!! I feel so lucky to have found her, it's like sitting with your closest friend, you leave feeling not only beautiful, but so happy from the heart out.

Nicole at Empire Hair Co. has been taking care of me and my hair for almost 20 years now! She seems to have a sixth sense when it comes to interpreting my vague ideas about what I'd like into beautiful and healthy styles. And she's one of the nicest people I know. Her salon is comfortable and relaxing and while you're waiting for the treatments to sink in, you can browse the cute boutique she curates right in the salon. I feel so lucky to have found her oh so many years ago, and look forward to many more decades of amazing care.

Nicole is a terrific stylist, colorist, entrepreneur, and listener. She shares her skills to make her clients glow. I appreciate how she is always abreast of new techniques and products. Even better, she has good ideas for me with an awareness of my activities, my look, my comfort level.

We've been working on my big head of hair for at least twelve years and I've never had the slightest desire to go anywhere else.

I also love the energy at Empire. Clearly, all of the independent beauty professionals there LOVE what they do.
