Nikol Elaine provides makeup and hair services for film, television, events, and more. She is based in San Francisco/Oakland and is happy to travel.
Nikol Elaine's artistic journey began in adolescence when she discovered her passion for art and painting. Working at a hair salon in high school gave her a taste of the beauty industry. She enrolled in cosmetology school, and earned her cosmetology license in 2002.
Nikol put in almost a decade with MAC Cosmetics, where she elevated her techniques, was promoted to management, and was invited to work at San Francisco Fashion Week. The success she experienced motivated her to launch Nikol Elaine Artistry.
When she isn't making people look like the best version of themselves, Nikol is drinking locally roasted coffee on her deck, baking healthy vegan-ish treats in her slippers, riding her bike around Oakland, or tasting wine in her beloved Northern California.
