Nathalie Koopmans Bio

Nathalie has been in the hair business since 1984.  She graduated as a cosmetologist in an Italian Academy in Caracas, Venezuela.  From there, she began working & expanding her knowledge of the industry working with three prestigious stylists from Uruguay, Spain, and Italy.  Working with them, she became intimately involved in styling hair for the fashion runways of Loreal & Schwarzkopf.  Events such as Miss Venezuela, styling for renowned photographers, while adding grace to hair models ad demonstrating their hair transformations until she perfected her technique.  This experience turned her into an expert stylist and colorist with a unique technique.

Later, in 1993, she accepted a proposal to move to the USA.  Chicago became her new home where she worked with Paul Mitchell & Rediken at Michael Anthony salons & spas (one of the best in the Chicago area).  Her technique was recognized & she became a trainer there teaching her styling and coloring correction techniques. 

Nathalie loves challenges!  So today, she has moved from the traditional salon hair world into the wig salon world.  She started to train and learn amazing techniques from London & Paris mastering wig restorations & refurbishing of synthetic fibers & human hair.
