"I have worked with Nikiya on everything from romantic roaring 20s waves for my wedding, a soft and textured blowout for a press event, and wigs & pieces that match my kinky-coily curls (to a T) for everyday life. She understands character, theme, and tones. She is creative, professional, and always on point. She listens to you, sees your vision, and leaves you with absolutely stunning hair...every time. Nikiya is the way, the truth and gives your hair life! Amen, and amen!"
"Nikiya is my secret weapon for anxiety-free hair solutions in NYC. As our industry diversifies, her efficient and thorough natural hair styling solutions have proven invaluable to me; both on set, and off. So thankful for her!!!"
THE MORNING SHOW, YELLOWSTONE
"Hair. You know. It's a woman's crown they say. I went to ActTRESSES Hair when I wanted to create something new for myself, my characters. And Nikiya Mathis perfectly blended my idea with my own head of hair. I love how natural, versatile and down right cute it is...it worked on set and off...for actresses, it takes a village. ActTRESSES Hair was an important part of the village that kept me looking glamour-ready....If you see yourself as a queen, and you "betta", get your crown right now. Get with ActTRESSES Hair."
" In an industry that is so very depedent on aesthetics which sometimes can present obstacles to maneuver within and around, Nikiya Mathis provides a service in a void that needs to be filled on so many levels, showcasing the versatility of looks Black women can carry while protecting our tresses, curating the opulence of our crowns. Woman, THANK YOU!"
SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT
