Fun Facts About Nicole

How long have you been in the beauty industry?

Since 2010

What inspired you to pursue a career in the beauty industry?

It all started with the popular trend of eyelash extensions! They were so new to the industry (except for temporary cluster lashes) that people were wondering... what.. you're glueing tiny fibres to people's eyes, haha! In 2009, there were only two of us in Nanaimo offering lash extensions, talk about being ahead of the game! Fast forward to today, and the industry has grown exponentially with excitement. I've been passionate about it ever since, bringing joy and glamour to clients like you.

What service are you most passionate about?

Lashes, lashes, lashes!! I absolutely love how they can completely transform someone's look. My all-time favorite is volume lashes, and I really enjoy creating unique and personalized styles for each and every person.

What do you love most about working at Van Isle Beauty?

Our amazing clients who have become more than just clients - they've become great friends and acquaintances! Some of them have been coming to see me every 3 weeks for over 11 years! Can you believe it? It's truly special and we are so grateful for each and every one of you. We wouldn't be where we are today without your support and loyalty! Cheers to creating beautiful memories together!

I absolutely adore this incredible collaboration of talented professionals who not only love to laugh and have a blast, but also know how to make our clients feel the love too! It's a joyous and fun-filled atmosphere where we all come together to create magic and make our clients feel absolutely fabulous!

What do you enjoy doing on your off time?

Hiking, travelling, the odd pickleball and anything to do with SUMMER!

One product you can't live without?

Anything from Éminence, but I love the age-corrective coconut moisturizer!
