Hair Stylist Profile: Nicky Oliver

We take a look at renowned hair stylist, Nicky Oliver.

In 1990, Nicky Oliver opened the doors to his first salon in Manchester's, Piccadilly. Nicky worked hard to strive to the top and in 2004 he decided that to keep up with the high demand he would open a second salon for the convenience of his clients in Oldham. After years of hard work and determination, it is safe to say that Nicky and his team have built one of Manchester's leading salons.

Nicky represents ambition and determination, which has driven him to success through his career. He believes strongly in motivating and encouraging his team, realizing that success within the salon is a direct result of quality training and management.

To help build this great hairdressing empire; Nicky likes to surround himself with hard working ambitious people that share the same drive for success.

As well as establishing a name as one of the UK's best hair stylists, Nicky is also known as one of the best stylists for Afro/Caribbean and Asian hair. Nicky also regularly does seminars overseas, which has given himself and his team industry international recognition.



Nicky has given TheHairStyler.com a look at his latest collection and has also supplied us with some quick info on how his latest hairdo's have been cut and styled.

Do you have a title for this collection? Nocturnal.

General collection description - what was your inspiration and vision for the collection (hair, fashion, make up and photography)?
I wanted to make a collection that was clean cut and classic. I was inspired hugely by 1950's favorites, and I feel this is shown through the classic, clean cut. A classic look is and will always be in style. I feel that I took a classic style and gave it a new modern edge.



Haircut: The hair was cut into an inverted bob past the shoulders with some soft layers.
Coloring: Bleach slices lifted to a medium blonde were applied 4.6 and then a chocolate brown was added throughout the hair. This will give softer tones rather than a block color.
Styling: The hair was blow-dried with a large bristle brush and the hair was then tucked and fastened with grips to make it look like a short bob.
Products used for coloring: Schwarzkopf Igora Royale.
