Wella TrendVision winner Nicole Obert is a master of cutting, coloring, and styling, who began her career assisting renowned celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo. Obert’s master class at Samuel Cole Salon, featured signature Sassoon-style haircuts and a hands-on session for balayage coloring (hair painting).
Obert demonstrated three color transformations – a blonde, a brunette, and a strong red – using custom techniques for each model. She formulated a glaze to brighten a dull blonde and finished her look with a structured bob haircut. She took a golden brunette to a bold copper red with a custom formulated glaze, and in her final demonstration, transforming a dark to sun-kissed brunette with surface balayage highlighting, she invited each stylist to perfect the technique on a model. Working one-on-one with each stylist allowed Obert to provide individual feedback.
I have such a thorough understanding of balayage application thanks to Nicole Obert. I feel excited about adding even more creativity to my balayage offerings.” -Stylist Kristen Carson
