Nicole Strachanis the owner of luxury hair salon, The Vault located in New Canaan. She is an elite artist with Invisible Bead Extensions, who has gone above just being certified in the method. Nicole has completed the extensive additional training it takes to achieve this prestigious title in the extension industry.
The Vault by Nicole Strachan keeps up on their education in all areas to ensure that their guests get the most up to date and on trend methods and products. The New Canaan hair salon specializes in versatile cuts, luxury blow outs, olaplex, glaze, bleach, toning, highlights, demineralization, extensions, balayage, ombre, lived-in hairstyles, and vibrant color. Nicole and her team of professional stylists will elevate your next hairstyle with their distinctive technique.
If you are looking to switch up your hairstyle, Nicole suggests trying out their speciality, Invisible Bead Extensions. Invisible Bead Extensions are different from any other weft hair extension on the market. The I.B.E. method is the only seamless weft method that creates no tension on the hair, has no exposed beads, and does not irritate the scalp in any way. You will not be able to tell that you are wearing the extensions in any type of hair style you chose. The weft is reinstalled eerie 7-10 weeks rather than tightening or moving up. With this I.B.E. method, a new set is recommended after 9 months.
We spoke with Nicole about her professional experience and what other characteristics make her salon unique from anywhere else.
GL: What makes your salon unique from others in the area?
NS: From the very first interaction we are trying to get to know you by having you fill out our new guest intake form. Hair history, current pics, inspo pics. The integrity of your hair is of the utmost importance to us. You are paired with a stylist that fits your needs so it's like a custom fit versus a factory of only those available.
GL: Do you have any services you specialize in?
NS: We specialize in extensions, cuts, & color.
GL: What do you want readers to know about you? What is your professional experience?
NS: Every stylist in this salon has been hand picked by me. I wanted a team of truly talented individuals and I'm so proud to say that I accomplished that! I have been in the beauty industry for over 20 years. I started my career in Metro Detroit and worked in some of the best salons. My drive for creating not only the best atmosphere & vibe where everyone can feel at home mixed with my obsession for perfection to make sure all of the guests at The Vault leave completely in love with not only their hair but also their experience is second to none.
GL: Do you have any hair styles/cuts that are particularly trendy right now, especially for the holiday season?
NS: Get ready cause the 90's are back baby! Statement cuts from sharp bobs, pixies, & the shag, bangs, and lots of volume is where it's at this season.
