Our Story


In 2009, Nikki Verdeccia opened NV Salon Collective to reflect her image of the ultimate salon experience: cooperative and skilled stylists creating classic and edgy style and offering exceptional service in an inviting setting. Nikki honed this vision during her extensive and varied career. She has worked for some of Baltimore’s most prestigious salons and with some of the top stylists in the country. As a National Performing Artist for Redken 5th Avenue NYC, she has traveled and taught extensively, getting inspiration from (and also inspiring!) some of the industry’s most creative artists.

Nikki’s vision is realized today by the diverse range of clients who are styled and satisfied at NV Salon Collective. The lovingly-restored building on 36th Street – The Avenue – in Hampden is a wonderful setting for this experience. Hampden’s mix of trendy boutiques, hip restaurants, long-time residents, and creative professionals offer a down-to-Earth, comfortable Baltimore vibe – the perfect location for a down-to-Earth Baltimore hair salon. NV Salon Collective team members are carefully selected for their exceptional skill and talent, as well as their positive influence and commitment to sharing their creativity with their colleagues and our clients.

NV Salon Collective’s partnership with Redken and Pureology allows the salon’s stylists to offer our clients the finest products and the most cutting-edge techniques.

Our story may have started with Nikki’s vision but today, our story is all about you – your style, your comfort and your experience. We hope to be part of the story of your life by bringing you excellent, stylish and memorable service.
