I began my career as a hairstylist in 2007 within the theatre industry. After years of private school education, salon experiences, and on site bridal work, I decided that I wanted to create and build my own business, Ink & Ivy. I established myself as a seasoned hair stylist and now I'm known as a boho hair expert in the bridal industry. I not only own my own business, but I have a team of ladies that work along side me at over 150 weddings a year and you can find me at my studio located in Port Jefferson Station, NY.
I spend each and every weekend traveling to join brides and their tribe on-site to get them ready for the special day!
I have been featured with Anomalie, a bohemian inspired bridal gown company. I am a lover of any and all boho braids and twists!
I've worked behind the scenes in Pnina Tornais 2020 Runway Show for Kleinfeild. I helped execute 4 of the hairstyles on the models involved in the 2020 collection for Pnina called "REAL".
"Nikki is such a joy to work with. She has such a calm demeanor and is SO good at her craft. I had 8 girls the day of my wedding each with different hair and Nikki was able to transform everyone. No hair is off limits for her." - peyton f.
