Blanca has been part of the VICI family for years, working first in Dispense at VICI Beauty School. She recalls the life-changing moment when she told owner Penny Rushing that she was quitting her job.
“I told her, you’re going to lose me as an employee, but gain a student,” she said, looking back on that moment. She was nervous to return to school, but faced her fears and quickly knew cosmetology was her calling in life.
Blanca excelled in school and was invited to rejoin the VICI family as a stylist upon graduation. She’s not only an outstanding stylist, she’s fun and goofy, loves to sing, and is obsessed with her eyelashes– ask her for tips on how she gets them to be so lush!
Blanca’s parents came to California from Mexico to start a family and give them all a chance for a better life. Blanca was born in Mexico, but raised in California and has many happy memories of her childhood there. She hopes to return one day to be with family and open her own salon with mimosas overlooking the beach.

You’ll want to be friends with Nadine immediately. It’s impossible to miss her radiant, uplifting energy and warm smile– in fact, we’re pretty sure she never stops smiling! She comes to us from Hoyerswerda, Germany, where she met her husband when he was stationed in the military. Nadine had already earned her cosmetology degree and license and was starting her career, but decided to follow her husband to America at the age of 20. A few years later, they had their first child, Mila, and three years later followed Wyatt Jr.
Once her children were in school full time, Nadine decided to pick back up her career as a stylist, but her license and degree from Germany wouldn’t transfer. She was nervous going back to school because of the language barriers, but decided to face her fears. Now, having achieved her second cosmetology degree and license from VICI Beauty School, she’s ecstatic that she did it.
Nadine is genuine yet modest about her talents as a stylist; her face lights up when she talks about her clients. During a consultation, she takes the time to learn exactly what each person wants and how she can best help them acheive their look. She loves working on highlights and learning new hair cutting techniques. In her spare time, she loves spending time with her family, relaxing and going to Elkhart Lake.
Nadine is currently accepting new clients. Call 414.525.0100 to book your appointment today!

One of the things that Taylor enjoys the most about being a hair stylist is the opportunity to do fun and different things every day.

Would you choose to follow your dream, even if it meant taking a huge leap of faith? Vanessa’s story is about listening to your heart:
Vanessa had a stable job working in an orthodontic office. It wasn’t what she wanted to do, but she could provide for herself and her daughter. Still, something was missing. She couldn’t shake the feeling that she wanted to do more. Her desire to follow her creative passion meant she’d have to leave her job, put herself through school and care for her child, all the while with bills to pay.
She knew she had to do it, so she enrolled at VICI Beauty School. Through her hard work and perseverance, she managed to not only afford school, but pay off her duplex at the same time! Not an easy feat!
At school, she discovered a new, untapped talent for men’s cuts and fades. Her instructors encouraged her to explore her talents. You can see more of her incredible, detailed work on her Instagram: @hairby_vane_
Vanessa is now accepting new clients. If you enjoyed her story, you’ll love what she can do for your hair!
Although Victoria enjoys coloring and cutting hair, she really likes the “sass” that the polished finish of a style from her gives when she’s done with a service. She is always up for a challenge and keeping up with the newest trends in the industry keeps her busy.
