The Owner of Organics Salon, Nicola Duffin, has been in the Hair and Beauty Industry for over 32 years. She began her journey in her hometown of Liverpool, England, where she studied Cosmetology for 2 years. After working in Liverpool for 5 years, she decided to travel the world. Working aboard cruise ships as a stylist for 5 years, she gained great experience working with people from all walks of life. Nicola then moved on to work at a prestigious Salon in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) for 2 years, before deciding to open her own business. She successfully owned and operated the original Organics Salon for 5 years in Abu Dhabi, working with locals and expatriates alike.
In 2002, she made her move to the United States and continued to pursue, educate, and devote herself to the hair and beauty industry. After attending the Toni & Guy Academy in London, England and training with their company for 10 years, Nicola started working within the TIGI Company. She was quickly moved into management within a few short months. Nicola has always remained focused on pursuing continuing education for herself, her staff, and the salon at large, encouraging her staff to stay abreast on the latest trends in the world of beauty.
Ten years ago, the first Organics Salon opened their doors in Round Rock, Texas. Continuously having a fully equipped, trained, and up-to-date staff has strongly led to this salon’s success and ever growing clientele. After learning about Aveda's mission, “To care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society,” Nicola decided to adopt the Aveda rituals and beliefs and evolve Organics Salon into an Aveda Concept salon. Each hair service comes with your choice of a complimentary hand massage, scalp massage or a makeup touch up. The experience in the salon is meant to be personal and unique following Nicola’s mantra, “To provide distinctive, quality and unparalleled customer service, striving to gain the respect and trust of our customers and coworkers alike.”
4 years ago, due to high demand, the second Organics Salon was opened in the Stone Hill Shopping Center located in Pflugerville, Texas. This addition to the Organics Salon Family has brought in new stylists, estheticians, as well as amazing clients. As business continues to grow, Nicola stays true to her passion of providing a world class experience to every single guest that walks through the door.
August 2017, Nicola decided to merge both salons and put all her energy in the Pflugerville Location. Pflugerville has grown so much and has a lot more potential. She will also keep looking for up and coming areas to add another salon.
