Demetra was inspired to lead a career in beauty thanks to do a love of fashion that blossomed during the 80s, when hair was the accessory of the era. In pursuit of her passions, she studied Fashion at Brooks College in Long Beach and before receiving her cosmetology license from San Jose City College. She has had the privilege of seeing her love of fashion come full circle, working with Aveda and Jon Reyman at New York Fashion week.
Demetra has also trained with some of the best in the industry, including Vivian MaKinder, Trevor Sorbie, Sally Rogerson, Vidal Sassoon, DJ Muldoon, Ian Michael Black, Nina Kovner and more. These individuals have been her greatest role models and teachers, and inspired her to pursue a teaching career of her own.
Demetra specializes in color—and true to her fashion origins, she particularly loves specialty and trending techniques like balayage, babylights, ombre, hair painting, and creative color. She is grateful that the ever-changing nature of the beauty industry continually pushes her to grow as a person as an artist and to inspire clients and her team to do the same.
Becoming a salon owner is the best decision she has ever made, and her greatest reward is witnessing the Nimbus team at work in the warm, creative environment she envisioned. When she’s not working, she loves spending time with friends over food and wine, dancing, and exploring the world.
