A Passion for Hair, Teaching & 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.
Charles & Nicole adore the team of Blu and consider them family. They have also been joined by their son, two daughters, and daughter-in-law in growing the salons vision.
Nicole and Charles have been licensed stylists for more than 30 years and salon owners for 20. They firmly believe in educating at the highest level. Both spend their days out of the salon educating in other salons throughout the United States as members of the Modern Salon Services & Davines North America Education 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 8 years developing programs like Reinventing Beauty, to help stylists, owners and clients to all come together to make a positive impact in our world.
Charles & Nicole feel blessed to spend every day working as a part of this beautiful industry that touches so many lives!
