Nidia, born and raised in LA, always knew she wanted to be in the beauty industry. Upon graduating from Paul Mitchell - Costa Mesa, Nidia trained under the talented and renowned colorist, Justin Anderson, for a little over 3 years. During this time, Nidia was able to refine her coloring skills, learning the newest techniques, and working towards creating the "natural blonde" hair that is popular amongst clients, especially in LA. While assisting, Nidia not only focused on creating new looks but also mastered the art of color correction. This hard work has led her to the Chris McMillan Salon, where she works amongst the best in the industry. First and foremost, Nidia believes in maintaining the integrity of the hair, and she knows when it comes to hair color there is no "one size fits all", which is why she is a firm believer in the importance of having a thorough consultation with her clients before any service to ensure the best result.
Nidia specializes in the Pure Brazilian Straightening Treatment System, the most popular smoothing treatment available for clients with curly, frizzy, or unruly hair - cutting blow-dry time almost in half, resulting in stronger hair shafts, smoother cuticles, less frizz, and of course a luxurious, radiant shine. Nidia also specializes in hand-sewn hair weft extensions, which keeps the hair strong and healthy because there is no glue involved.
Nidia has had the privilege of working with a variety of clients such as Sean Penn, Arianna Huffington, Meghan Markle, Sean Patrick-Flannery, Alicia Ochse, Tallulah Willis, Florence Welch, Mira Sorvino, Kat Foster, Jon Bernthal, Miley Cyrus and more.
