Nikki Naylor is a co-owner and one of the artists at Beauty Lounge and Co. Nikki is from Brevard, Florida and has lived in Gainesville for 8 years. Nikki graduated from Joe Blasco Makeup Artist Training Center of Orlando in 2007 with a certificate in Professional Makeup Artistry.
After graduating from Joe Blasco, Nikki attended the University of Florida. She graduated with a bachelor's degree of science in Family, Youth and Community Science in 2012. She worked as a bridal Make-Up artist while attending the University of Florida. With her passion for the beauty industry and dedication to helping women feel beautiful, Nikki decided to begin microblading training to further expand her skills in the beauty world.
Nikki completed an apprenticeship under the microblading artist at Body Escape Spa in Maitland, Florida and completed an online training with Deluxe Brows. She also received an 8 hour, in-depth training in the science of pigments, skin undertones, modifiers and color corrections.
Nikki's business partner, Tara, opened the parent company of Beauty Lounge & Co, Body Escape Spa Lounge in Maitland, Florida in 2011. Body Escape has been a successful Spa offering massage, microblading and eyelash extensions so they expanded their business in February of 2016 and opened Beauty Lounge & Co in Gainesville.
Since opening in February, Beauty Lounge & Co has exclusively offered microblading. After nine months of success, we are happy to announce that are expanding the services to include eyelash extensions, eyebrow tinting, waxing and skin care services.
To Nikki, Beauty Lounge is everything. It stands for her remaining true to who she is and creating a life she loves.
