Nikole Baudek – Independent Contractor Stylist

Nikole Baudek

I graduated from Regency Beauty Institute in 2011. Being a cosmetologist had always been a dream for me. I love what I do! I love the variety of my job each day and getting to know my clients while making them feel like the best version of themselves!  I enjoy taking classes to better craft my skills and learn new techniques. I’ve traveled to New York and Nashville for shows as well as many time to Minneapolis for classes. Foiling/balayage are my favorite services to do but I truly love the diversity in my days!  Along with hair and nail services, I also do facial and body waxing.

Tiffani Quast – Independent Contractor Stylist

Tiffani Quast

I have been doing hair since 2014 after graduating from Headquarters Academy of Hair Design in Minot, ND. My favorite thing about being a hairstylist is getting to design a total transformation. Giving a woman or man a fresh new cut and/or color to give them a brand new look. I specialize in bridal makeup and also really enjoy applying hair extensions. Some of the methods I have obtained certification through Hairtalk USA and Cinderella Hair are in hand tied wefts, tapes, organic bond, and single strand beaded. I love helping my clients to love their hair as well as feel beautiful and confident when they leave my chair!

Patti Mineheine – Independent Contractor Stylist

I have had a passion for doing hair since I was in high school but never went to school. The beautician that used todo my hair kept telling me I should go to school, so at the age of ‘38’ I went back to school. “It’s Never too Late” I’ve been at the Cutting Edge for 9 years. I enjoy doing shampoo sets, color, and I’m known as the Perm Queen.
