A Passion for Hair and Each Other

Charles and Nicole Gillick share a love of hair, and in their passion for styling, they found love for one another. The couple, who both have a long family history working in the salon and barbershop industry, opened Blu in 2009 with a simple vision: to create a salon with a harmonious team culture, a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and focus on customer service.

After years of business consulting and a lot of trial and error, they have accomplished just that. In doing so, they reignited their passion for the industry.

Nicole and Charles have been licensed stylists for more than 25 years and salon owners for 16. They firmly believe in educating at the highest level. Both are members of the Modern Salon Services
and Davines North America Artistic Teams.

Their passion, for bettering the lives of those seeking a career in salon industry, drives them to provide exceptional education experiences unlike any currently being offered in the industry. The two have spent the last 4 years developing programs like Reinventing Beauty, to help stylists, owners and clients to all come together to make a positive impact in our world.
