Alexis Garza

Junior partner | Salon Director | Senior color specialist

Nicole Alkhoury

Senior Cut Specialist | assistant salon director

Experience: 6 years | @cutsbynicole

Nicole always thought about how fun it would be to become a hairstylist one day. She first started as a front desk receptionist at Toni & Guy, and since then, she has been inspired as she's watched the stylists unleash their creativity into cut & coloring hair. The moment Nicole realized this industry was for her was seeing her clients leave her chair utterly happy. It makes her day every time. Nicole specializes in cutting and styling. The most memorable moment for her was completing her education program through Toni & Guy. As a cosmetologist fresh out of school, you only learn so much before you really understand the techniques and concepts of haircutting or coloring. Toni & Guy had offered education to expand your knowledge into both fields. Since then, her knowledge of hair continues to grow every day, and she's forever grateful to be able to work for a team that continues to support one another. Teamwork makes the dream work!
