My name is Katerina Nikou. I am from Dedham, MA and I’m a stylist at SalonCapri at Legacy Place.
How long have you worked for SalonCapri?
I have been with this amazing team for 5 years.
What do you specialize in?
My specialty is balayage. I fell in love with balayage a few years ago as I started to see it on a few of my favorite celebrities. I love how you can achieve so many different effects, from naturally sunkissed, to bold and funky. I find that all my balayage clients go for different looks, which keeps it fun and exciting.
What inspired you to become a hair stylist?
My inspiration for hair started at a young age. Growing up with a mother who was a hairstylist, and watching her transform her look every so often fascinated me! As I got older, I found myself in love with fashion. I would read fashion magazines and try to recreate the look on myself and friends. Changing my look up once in a while made it fun. So, it was then when I realized I belonged in a salon.
What is your #1 hair care or styling tip?
Using the right shampoo, conditioner, styling products to help keep your hair in the best condition.
Which favorite hair care product has been in constant rotation for you behind the chair?
My favorite product behind the chair has always been Nectar Thermique by Kérastase. This product is awesome – it’s nourishing, adds shine, and protects your hair from heat styling.
Which celeb haircut and/or color are you loving right now and why?
Demi Lovato – her dark chin length cut is super sexy!
What are your favorite hair colors or style trends right now?
Chin length cuts and rich dark colors.
What hair products should everyone have in their arsenal at home?
Bain Satin I shampoo and Lait Vital conditioner by Kérastase. I also recommend L’incroyable Blowdry, also by Kérastase, which is a “reshapeable” heat lotion that you apply to towel-dried hair for anti-frizz control and heat protection from blow-dryers and styling tools. These three products will have your hair looking and feeling amazing!
