Bio

Nikki Maybee is the owner and founder of Salon Simply Beautiful, one of the most innovative salons in the Detroit Metro area.

Nikki has honed her skills training with the industry’s most elite educators and remains dedicated to continuing education. Armed with technical expertise, passion, and over 20 years of experience, Nikki can take a client’s vision and bring it to life! With thorough consultation and appreciation for her client’s lifestyle, preferences, and individual features, Nikki is able to customize hair care solutions that are modern and simply beautiful.

In 2009, Nikki pursued her dream of establishing her own salon. Her goal was to create a beautiful, relaxing environment staffed with top-notch stylists devoted to total customer care. As a result, Salon Simply Beautiful came to be and is now a respected name in the beauty industry. The salon is now a frequent destination for clients traveling from both near and far.

Nikki is a strong supporter of continuing education and is a member of both the Professional Beauty Association and National Cosmetology Association and serves as a Beacon Award judge when requested. Nikki is also a certified Brazilian Blowout Educator.
Nikki is not your average hairdresser. Giving back to the community has always been one of her top priorities. With the support of the salon’s many equally caring clients and staff, she has raised funds for breast cancer, Locks of Love, and numerous community schools and organizations. The annual Salon Simply Beautiful “Pink Party” Breast Cancer Fundraiser has become a “standing room only” event that has featured nationally renowned speakers. During the pandemic Nikki has encouraged vaccine awareness through the nationally organized "Shots at the Shop" initiative.

Nikki balances the demands of her profession with equal devotion to her family and friends. Blend with ample portions of salsa dancing and Prince, and you have the recipe for the perfect life!

Shannon Forrest

Licensed Cosmetologist</br>Certified Makeup Artist
Licensed Cosmetologist
Certified Makeup Artist

Bio

Shannon Leigh is a self-taught, Douglas J. Aveda-trained, daughter of a hairstylist. She is a Detroit native, based in and serving the metro area. Shannon's mother encouraged her to turn her “Kitchen Beautician" side-hustle into a career.

She never saw doing hair as a job because it was something that came so natural to her. After challenging herself and succeeding through beauty school, she immediately started working as an assistant. Licensed since February 2010 and proud to have reached 10 years in the beauty industry, she is a professional artist with her own chair at Salon Simply Beautiful. Shannon is not only a beauty artist, but rather, an independent contractor/freelance artist, a multifaceted artist doing both hair and makeup, a female entrepreneur, a black small business owner, and a sole proprietor (among many other things).

Lashed by Shannon Leigh Beauté is the first product line to be launched by Shannon Leigh. The first collection consists of 8 different styles and is catered towards women who love a bold lash that's not too dramatic for a soft glam look.

The beauty industry can be intimidating at times, but what keeps Shannon Leigh going is knowing that there is always a place for the artist who stays humble and true to their esthetic.
