Nicole Carter

Stylist / Front Desk

After working at Hair Daze for two years, Nicole decided to try a change of scenery and moved to Arizona. There, she worked at a blow-dry bar and eventually a salon where she was able to complete a rigorous apprentice program. Through this program she refined her skills and spent each day taking classes to further her hair education. After a year she realized she truly missed her family, and friends at Hair Daze, and moved back to New Hampshire to continue her career at her original salon home. Nicole is passionate about making everyone that sits in her chair look and feel their best. She loves achieving this through transformative cuts and colors, but also enjoys creating dimension through various balayage and foiling techniques, or just showing her clients a new way to style their hair that makes them feel incredible.

Lauren graduated from the Marinello Schools of Beauty in Enfield, CT. She brings her seven years of experience to New Hampshire with her, after moving here last year. While Lauren loves staying on top of trends and trying new techniques, her main focus is always being as honest as possible with her clients about their goals. She believes it is so important to keep the integrity of the hair while processing, and educate every person who sits in her chair about the best ways to maintain their new style. Whatever you can dream up for a style, Lauren prides herself on providing a thorough consultation to make your vision a reality.
