Nicole Westerhof owns Nicole’s Hair and Nails, a beauty salon in Warsaw, Indiana. Nicole is a licensed cosmetologist with over 25 years of experience. She began her cosmetology career by working underneath a friend of hers, but then decided two years later that her true passion was owning a salon of her own.
Nicole is a lifetime resident of Warsaw and resides there with her husband, Tom, and their two children, Harper and Hayes. When she’s not running her salon, you can find Nicole cheering on her kiddos at their sporting events, traveling, eating out with friends and family, or working out at the local CrossFit gym.
Nicole treasures her clients and thinks of herself as a sounding board for them. She not only offers haircuts and a fresh new set of nails but provides a safe place for her clients to talk about whatever is on their heart and mind.
If you’d like to show your support for Nicole’s Hair and Nails, stop in for a haircut, or to purchase a hair product! It can be hard for salons to compete with national chain stores when it comes to hair products, so purchasing from local salons helps to keep their doors open and the money local.
When asked to share an encouraging word to other women business owners, Nicole said,
“I’m lucky enough to be in an industry dominated by women. Don’t hesitate to be a mentor, offer advice, and never give up on your dream. I could not have made it to where I am today without the help of other women, and I will be forever grateful to them.”
