The Style Witch

Hi, I'm Nyla and I am the stylist who will work with you to create a bespoke color and shape for your unique life, identity, and style. I believe that a perfect blonde or rich, dimensional brunette can be a fantasy in its own right, however, bringing out your inner fairy with hues found in the rainbow is my absolute joy. I will never talk you out of glitter or anything that takes you to the fantasy side. 

 

I love working with all identities and creating the right look for you. I tend to ask a lot of questions and I love inspiration photos. While I never recreate a single photo, seeing the looks you like, and styles you don’t want is incredibly helpful. Your hair should be suited to you and while photos are very helpful you are not that model and I am not that hair stylist. We will forge our own path together. Some of my favorite services have come from someone bringing in a pair of shoes to match, wanting to be a pacific northwest mermaid, and pictures of birds. Inspiration can come from anywhere! 

 

Being a hairstylist is the perfect mix of art, chemistry, biology, and chatter. I love being able to move around at work and talk about all manner of things with my clients. But I am happy to also sit quietly if you would prefer. Sometimes a quiet service, eavesdropping on all that is going on around us, is just what you need to relax the day away. 

 

I have lived in three states over my three decades and I moved to Baltimore to embark on the next adventure in the middle of the world wide pandemic that is COVID-19. I haven’t been able to explore Baltimore as I would like, so suggestions on where to go are totally welcome. I love food, coffee, makers markets, and antique stores. My hands always have to be busy so I make jewelry, macrame, art, and more. Maybe I need to slow down but I probably won’t. 

 

If you are not learning you are dying, which is why I love to take classes, read books, and talk often about what is worming its way into my brain.  

 

Go book your appointment! I can’t wait to meet you.

xoxo, NYLA
