The Ivy Mae is owned and operated by Nicole Gaston. Nicole’s love for the beauty industry began as a young girl, and her career started over 30 years ago when she graduated from Oxnard Beauty College. She is trained in a technical approach, and her continuing education through Vidal Sassoon gives Nicole the foundation to tailor each client’s cut and color to their individual needs. Nicole always aims to provide her clients with simple, quality services.
In 2017, Nicole purchased a building and began her journey of creating a salon from the ground up that reflected her creative identity. The Ivy Mae design inspiration is minimalism with an organic atmosphere and natural light.
