The seed of Hairdressers with heart was planted when salon owners, Nina Husen and Nicole Hitchcock in Novato, CA went through the loss of their fellow stylist/sister. The entire salon team and clientele watched as their friend/co-worker/sister/ stylist went through the process of learning she had cancer. They witnessed the devastation over learning that she was going to lose her hair. The salon team jumped in to support her the only way they knew how. They helped her with her hair. If she would have survived, they believe that, she too would be doing the work of Hairdressers with Heart. Brandy Hitchcock will forever remain an inspiration and the ultimate Style Hero.
