Rachel or Rae as she's affectionately known around the salon is originally from Philippi, West Virginia. She Graduated from Morgantown Beauty School in 2014 and became part of the NICO all-star team in 2016. 

Rae takes seriously ensuring that each and every client leaves with the perfect hair color and style to suite his or her lifestyle and inner spirit. Her goal is to be upfront and honest when a client brings a request to her chair making certain that a client leaves with beautiful hair, but hair that's healthy and radiant. She has an eye for color and can match your haircut and style so they compliment each other perfectly. 

Rae is passionate about education and her natural curiosity has led to her exploring a wide range of products, treatments, color lines and specialty services. She has worked extensively with Wella, Aveda, Matrix, MyColor, Schwarzkopf Professional, and Pravana. In addition to her work with color and styling collections, she is also a certified Brazilian Blowout stylist and Hot Heads Extension Pro Stylist.

I love Rae (Rachel Ware) at Nico. I’ve been a client of hers from other establishments & followed her to Nico! Her color work and cuts are always flattering. She makes the surroundings comfortable and the experience relaxing - always going the extra mile to provide an enjoyable experience. Nico itself is a beautiful salon and Rae’s chair has the best view!! I highly recommend.

Rachel is absolutely AMAZINGGGG! She was very articulate and took her time on my color and cut. I’m absolutely stunned by her professionalism and recommend her to anyone. Plus, the sales Nico have are icing on the cake. Who doesn’t love saving on shampoo and conditioner that’ll make your hair in the long run last longer? They’re not out for a buck, they’re out for your HAIR. I couldn’t be more pleased!
