With more then 12 years experience in the hair industry, Nick St.Mary has carved out a little piece of his life in San Francisco California and brought it to Bellingham Washington. Seasoned in both hair cutting and color Nick loves to provide wearable textured looks that suit his clients lifestyles.
Nick comes from a long line of hairdressers. His mother and grandmother both did hair for many years on the east coast. As a child Nick spent a lot of time in his mother’s hair salon in rural Pennsylvania just north of Philadelphia, where he’d help sweep hair, clean brushes and take rollers out of the older women’s hair. I guess he inherited this trade. Growing up back east nick had always dreamt of living in California so at the age of 22 he moved to Oakland.
He trained at some of the best Bay Area hair salons such as Peter Thomas Hair Design In Berkeley, and Edo Salon and Gallery Sf. He has also continued his education with hair cutting classes at Bumble and Bumble in NYC where he learned straight razor hair cutting techniques.
He opened his first salon in 2010 on 24th and Guerrero streets in San Francisco. After 3 years he decided to take a break from hair and moved on to other ventures and closed up shop. Late summer 2016 nick and his wife and daughter moved to Bellingham Washington to be closer to family and enjoy a slower pace of life.
