For Amanda, becoming a hair stylist was a natural decision. She started working in salons at a young age and decided to attend Cosmetology school. Her passion for hair has continued to grow since. Amanda trained at a successful and upscale salon for four years and in March of 2013, joined the D.Anthony team. She believes education is essential in being a successful stylist and the key to growth; it allows her to learn and utilize new techniques and expand her creativity. Amanda has been educated at Redken Exchange, the Joico Art Institute, and most recently Arrojo Advanced Academy, where she attended a 4 week intensive “Boot Camp”. Amanda’s passion motivates her to strive for success and give her clients the best styles to make them look and feel great.
Nicole’s dedication to the craft of hairdressing was apparent from the moment she joined the D.Anthony team.

She also attended the Spring session of Arrojo Boot Camp where she continued to polish her skill set and grow her craft. Nicole’s commitment to excellence and strong work ethic have helped her rise quickly as an in-demand hairdresser on the D.Anthony salon floor.
