Meet Nicholas!

I am so elated that my career, and journey through life has guided me to Nashville, and to Pure Organic Salon + Spa!  13 years ago, I began my career in Chicago, IL. As soon as I graduated Cosmetology school, I went on to apprentice for an additional year to become a junior stylist, (and then stylist) at a top rated Goldcoast Chicago salon + spa.  During that time, as well as in my formative years as a junior stylist, I was able to expand my knowledge of hair cutting, coloring, balayage, and styling through an in-house intensive [Vidal Sassoon method] precision hair cutting program, L’Oreal Professional color program, Kerastase & Shu Uemura hair styling programs, as well as numerous nationally and internationally renowned independent stylist and colorist education programs that chose to make that salon space their “education house”. 

After a handful of years working behind the chair in Chicago, I decided to give the intense seasons a break, and expand my life and career to Southern California. I spent 7 years exploring various avenues of the beauty and entertainment industry between Los Angeles and San Diego. I had the opportunity to train and work behind the chair at a salon in Beverly Hills, get my stylistic input as well as my work published in a few national print publications,  worked on-set for television shows like Access Hollywood, Extra!, ABC Fab Life, & Bravo Real Housewives, and spent several seasons working on the Primetime Emmy’s red carpet, along with countless television and movie premier red carpets. I mention all of these accolades to provide you with my background in the industry, but truthfully, as it pertains to my career, nothing gives me more joy and fulfillment than simply seeing the look of a happy, grateful client in my salon chair, ready to take on the world with their updated and uplifted new look! 

In 2017 my spirit was moved and my intuition was compelling me to make a change, a big one. I’ve always had a low-key love for Nashville (and music), so, I decided it was time to shake things up, and give Music City a try!  Truth-be-told, I was not intending to work in a salon again upon moving to Nashville. I’d simply had enough of all the toxicity (chemicals and attitudes) that can sometimes take over the energy of a salon space. Enter, Pure Organic Salon + Spa.  The moment I stepped in the door upon my first meeting, I knew this was the energy for me, as well as the energy that I could cultivate a new clientele within. The team, the owners, the environment, the products all 100% organic and toxicity free! A welcomed change indeed. The world around us can be toxic enough, It gives me great pride to know that I get to live and promote a healthier existence and healthier beauty. I’ve always been told that you are who you hang around, so I’m looking forward to building lasting relationships with the like-minded professionals and clients that choose to also call Pure Organic Salon + Spa their wellness home.

Meet Philana!

As a kid, I was obsessed with eyebrows. Or rather, other people's eyebrows because mine were blonde and invisible to the naked eye (this often sent me rifling for eyeliner in my mother’s purse *sigh* I had to burn those school photos. )Nevertheless, my eyebrow obsession taught me something paramount to becoming a great hairstylist. Simply, that our features can be completely transformed depending on how we choose to frame them. Hair is a wonderful medium. By playing with it’s shape and color, we can choose to showcase our eyes, our cheekbones, even our freckles..  we can change not only how the world perceives us but how we perceive ourselves. Pretty fun!

I am a Master Stylist with 14 years behind the chair. I hail from the Pacific Northwest and helped launch the first Organic Salon in Seattle over a decade ago. I subscribe to the belief that living a beautiful life also means leaving a small footprint on the environment. This is Pure’s mission and that’s why I’m totally honored to be part of the Pure team. 

When I’m not styling hair in either Tennessee or Washington, I’m in the studio producing music.
