Sonia Stancombe

Owner/Artistic Director, Aveda Cutting Coach, Vomor Extensions

Sonia is a Master Stylist as well as the owner of Nicholas J. Salon & Spa. Being in touch with the salon's guests and their needs is very important to Sonia; just one of the many reasons why her chair is never empty! Sonia and her husband Brad are parents to Nick and Mary and opened Nicholas J. Salon & Spa in 2005. If that's not enough, Sonia is also an Aveda Salon Coach and educator.
