Nicole Botticelli


stylistphotos_nicole Nicole knew at a very early age that she had a talent for making people look beautiful.  She started working in a salon at just 14 years old and was encouraged to grow her talent.  Right out of school she had the opportunity to be mentored by stylist and original owner of Xavier’s Color Concepts, Robert Xavier Ramus.  Under his direction Nicole too became an expert colorist.  Nicole continued her training and studied Vidal Sassoon, Matrix and SoCap Extensions International. After a few short years Nicole, with the help of her family, purchased and took over Xavier’s Color Concepts as the new owner.  Ten years later with her amazing staff Xavier’s Color Concepts successfully continues with countless satisfied clients.  As trends continue, Nicole continues her education and is always on the cutting edge of new styles.  As a new mom, Nicole stays true to all of her passions because Xavier’s Color Concepts is family and truly her home away from home!
