Hometown: Hayward, CA
Nekisa’s dream of being a hairstylist was realized at a young age, and she attended beauty school while still in high school and graduated from the International Beauty Academy at the age of 18. She worked as a stylist at various salons in the Bay Area before taking a position at KellyAnn’s Salon and Day Spa in Pleasant Hill, CA where she worked her way up to Master Stylist.
Eventually, she decided that it was time to become an independent contractor and moved to Contradictions Salon in Lafayette, CA, where she was selected to join the Sebastian hair team as an educator.
In 2006, she opened her own salon -- Beauty Boutique Salon -- where she says she is currently working to make her clients feel and look magnificent.
