A true lover of color, Nikki Ferrara is a versatile colorist that specializes in rich chocolate hues and vibrant eye-catching reds. When working with blondes, she enjoys creating the effect a day of sun has on a child's hair, opting for warm caramel tones with a mixture of lighter and golden pieces.
Nikki began her career working alongside several of world's most renowned colorists. Her initial training began under the tutelage of the head colorist while at the Oscar Blandi salon. The following year she studied under senior colorist Mei Wong and creative director Brad Johns at the Avon Salon & Spa. A year later, Nikki found herself at the John Frieda Salon in New York, receiving training from the salon's team of top colorists, including Sharon Dorram. She then moved to Sally Hershberger Downtown in the Meatpacking District, assisting celebrity colorist Marie Robinson, where she rose up the ranks to a Color Director with her own list of VIP clients.
Nikki has quickly established herself as the go-to for A-list actresses and ingénues who require picture perfect color for movie roles. She is responsible for the rich hues and transformative color of Lizzie Olsen, Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei in " The Wrestler" and Mila Kunis in "Friends With Benefits," as well as Imogen Poots in "A Late Quartet," Alex Bledel in "Violet & Daisy," and Sharon Stone in "Gods Behaving Badly," all hotly anticipated releases.
