- About Nick
Nick sees the beauty in everything and is committed to helping all women achieve that “Every Day Gorgeous™” look through healthy, shiny, beautiful hair.
Nick’s passion for beauty and spiritual living began early on. As a young boy from Yuma, Arizona, Nick Chavez dreamed of one day having an exciting, adventurous life. Being the second-oldest of seven children, Nick was no stranger to hard work as one of the family’s ranch hands while learning holistic healing remedies from his Yaqui Grandmother nearby. But it was his skill at grooming the family’s horses and his determination and confidence that led him to grow. Armed with just his scissors (and a fierce sense of style), Nick took his natural talents to the next level by creating hip, trendy hairstyles for his siblings and members of his extended family.
After honing his talents as a young adult, Nick made the jump to California, where he immediately began working in a prominent Beverly Hills salon. Nick quickly advanced from apprentice to full-fledged hairdresser, developing a strong clientele and an even stronger reputation.
But once again, Nick’s talents extended outwards.
He became an actor and model and his tour of Europe (working with designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves St. Laurent and Valentino), was so successful that it lead to magazine covers in Vogue, GQ, Elle, and Esquire and a 100-foot billboard in Times Square. As an actor, Nick appeared on television shows such as “The Young and the Restless” and “Hollywood Detectives.”
Yet, the adventures and accomplishments that Nick felt in acting and modeling could not match the passion and fulfillment that he experienced as a hairdresser, so he decided to return to Beverly Hills—this time as the proprietor of his own salon.
“Be-You-tiful moments, are the most cherished moments in life,” Nick says. “When a woman knows she’s beautiful, the whole world can feel her confidence."
Building on his former reputation, Nick’s salon immediately garnered such clientele as Margeaux Hemmingway, Lisa Hartmann, and Belinda Carlisle. Presently, Nick works with Maria Shriver, Ivana Trump, George Lopez, Queen Noor and Michelle Stafford. Nick, however, struggled with finding quality hair care products for his varied customers. True to his highly ambitious character, Nick took matters into his own hands and developed his own line, Nick Chavez Beverly Hills. Nick is committed to helping his customers achieve that “Every Day Gorgeous™” look through healthy, shiny, beautiful hair.
“I struggled with finding quality hair care products for my customers and knew I had to take matters into my own hands.”
In addition to his prominence as a hairstylist, Nick’s highly successful line of products is currently sold online, and is featured on home shopping channel’s such as QVC (U.S.) in the United States and internationally, on QVC (Germany), QVC (Japan) and The Shopping Channel in Canada. In addition, Nick’s products are widely sold through the internet and can be found on such e-commerce sites like beauty.com, dermstore.com, folica.com, qvc.com, and of course nickchavezbeverlyhills.com.
Because of his amazing hair and makeover transformations, Nick Chavez also appears regularly on the talk show circuit on such shows as "E! Fashion Emergency,” "The Montel Williams Show," and "Extreme Makeovers.”
