Greetings everyone. Thanks for checking out our website. I grew up in Sidney and am still glad to call it home. Wow, what a ride Sidney has experienced over the years and especially as of late. I attended St. Patrick’s high school, graduating with distinction, well not distinction, but I DID graduate in the class of ‘87. I was fairly fashion oriented at that time and decided that being a hairstylist would be a great profession and a way to express my creativity! I entered cosmetology school at WNCC in Sidney, and as they say, the rest is history. I enjoyed this profession from the Start and have been doing it ever since.

I won’t do the math for you, but I am what you might call a “seasoned veteran” in this industry. I worked for various employers and then entered into a Barbering program and a Cosmetology instructors certification program. I am still a certified Barber, Cosmetologist, and Cosmetology instructor. I opened Nelson Design in 1996 and have been at my current Location since 1998. I was blessed with 4 wonderful children and a loving family. I recently hired Lillie Rademacher, who is a delightful young lady and a dynamic stylist. She’s determined to keep me young and up to date, “out of the stone age” as she puts it! Therefore, a website is now a reality! Yay! Please feel welcome to stop in anytime for a visit, and perhaps a New ‘Do.
