Wondering what to get for that special someone?   The packages below are guaranteed to blow their Christmas socks right off!

contact me at:


Colour Consultation (Ladies & Gents) – $75

By looking at your skin tone, hair and eye colour, I will show you which colours complement and enhance your natural features.  After our meeting you will be sent a detailed report.

Online Colour Report (Ladies & Gents) – $50

For those on the go, or no time to meet with me, I can provide you with an Online Colour Report that is as thorough and tailored as a one-on one meeting.


Style & Body Shape Consultation (Ladies & Gents) – $75 

In this consultation we will discuss your lifestyle and personality to establish your style.  We will look at your body shape to ensure you are wearing the correct clothes to make the most of your best features and tricks on disguising the bits you don’t like.  This session is guaranteed to leave you with invaluable tips and bags of confidence.  After our meeting you will be sent a detailed report.

Online Style & Body Shape Report (Ladies & Gents) – $50

Wardrobe Detox (Ladies) – $150 (3 hours min)

This service is offered as a stand-alone service but is most beneficial when combined with the colour, style and body shape consultation as the results from those are taken into consideration when going through your wardrobe.

I will go through all the items in your wardrobe eliminating items that you shouldn’t be wearing, show you different ways to wear and combine existing clothes and how to revive items with a few simple tweaks. By determining the gaps in your wardrobe, I will compile a list of items that you need to achieve a basic skeletal wardrobe. which you can eventually expand on with your new found knowledge.  This session is designed to give you renewed confidence in yourself and your appearance.

Please note, the time taken to go through your wardrobe depends on how extensive it is.  However, I will give you a few preparatory steps before our consultation to eliminate any wasted time.


Shopping Spree (Ladies & Gents) – $150 (3 hours)

This service can be taken on it’s own but is most beneficial after completing the Colour, Style, Bodyshape Consultations and Wardrobe Detox.  I will show you how pleasurable shopping can be, once you know what you are looking for!  Depending on your budget and preference, we will visit high street stores or carefully selected designer boutiques where you will receive fab discounts.

Online Shopping Report (Ladies & Gents) – $50 for 4 outfit suggestions

Searching for that special outfit but don’t have the time?  I can provide you with an Online Shopping Report with 4 complete outfit suggestions (within your budget) that is as thorough and tailored as a one-on one meeting.

OR…for an EXTRA SPECIAL TREAT to sweep them off their feet…

Pure Luxury – $379

This day is all about pure indulgence!  From a handful of carefully selected boutiques, enjoy two hours of discounted shopping where you will have Nicolette’s undivided attention.  Next, put your hair in the hands of one of the best salons in Vancouver for a relaxing wash & blow dry.  After a spot of lunch, you’ll be whisked away for a make-over beauty consultation and then finish the day off with a luxurious manicure or pedicure at the most heavenly beauty rooms in town.

(Full day / Cost of clothing not included in price)

Fall/Winter 2013 Hair Trends

In Uncategorized on November 16, 2013 at 9:20 pm

A bit late on the mark for this but hey… we have another 4 month contract with this chilly weather so there’s still plenty of time for a little snip and shape ;o)


There are so many different styles to top off your look – go side, crown, fishtail, updo fishtail (woah!!!), French braid, bun braid…the options are endless!

Side braid

Crown braid

Fish braid

Updo Fish Braid

Updo French braid

 Faux Fringe

Bangs can be high maintenance, but if you want the effect without the hassle, a quick down and side swipe (with a bit of product) will do the trick.

side part faux bangs

Side Part faux bangs

Side part faux bangs

side part faux bangs

A bit more daring but oh so fun and a wide variety of different styles to rock out!  Mohawks, mullets, chopped pixie and even the blatantly blunt cut extension fringe!





Neo Goth

A more feminine romantic approach this time round.
