The Tribe


Nicky is the proud owner of this brand new salon situated in the beautiful beach side village of Palm Cove which is the most northern suburb of Cairns. She has been in the hairdressing industry for 18 years and still loves every minute of it.  Nicky believes the best thing about being a hairdresser is that you get to be creative everyday & make so many people feel & look great. Nicky has extensive training in advanced colour work. Her favourite thing to do in the salon is specialised blonde colouring & creative styling.

Nicky is passionate about protecting & preserving our natural environment which is one of the reasons she created Karmeleon eco hair.

“I wanted to use less toxic products for my own & my clients health benefits. Its also a massive benefit to not wash harmful chemicals into our precious water ways and over the Great Barrier Reef everyday”

When she’s not in the salon creating you will find Nicky hanging out with her dog at the beach or helping out with various volunteer groups helping to protect our beautiful Tropical rainforest & Reef.
