Conversations with Nicole Hadley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Hadley.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I always loved to do hair as a little girl, my mom would buy me Barbie Mannequins and hair products. I then decided that I was going to go to a Trade School for High School. I majored in Cosmetology. I graduated and didn’t pursue my dreams of becoming a cosmetologist. I was persuaded that I wouldn’t go far. After many failed attempts at other careers that just weren’t satisfying for me. I tried again and found what I really lived bout the beauty industry and that was Nail Artistry.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t been a smith road. After I decided that I wanted to give the beauty industry a try again I thought doing an apprenticeship was well worth it. That didn’t go well because hair wasn’t my focus! I got fired and let go from my apprenticeship and I didn’t don’t know what was next for me. I sacrificed 12 weeks to go to Nail School 45 mins to an hour each way. I wasn’t working and funds were low!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a Nail Artist. I specialize in Nail Extensions and nail artistry. I’m known for a sharp stiletto nail and some abstract nail art. I am most proud of the progress I made throughout learning to do nails and there is way more to come!

Who else deserves credit in your story?
My friends were my biggest cheerleaders and supporters!! They pushed me and encouraged me and never let me quit!! Even when I felt like I couldn’t do it they always let me know it was possible.
