Craft & Mane Academy is a [members-only] secret hiding spot for all my favorite hair tips and techniques.  A place to come to learn new techniques and TRULY start to understand how to style [and love] your hair.


Having salon-style hair doesn't have to take forever and you don't need any overwhelming methods tying you down.  Let's get down to the tried and true techniques that show up EVERY TIME!

Nikki Kepley hair stylist

Hi there

Hey friends!  My name is Nikki.  I am a wife, mama and hairdresser for over 18 years!  [yikes, time flies.]

A couple years ago, a random idea popped into my head.  I noticed that so many of my clients and Instagram friends were asking me the SAME questions.  Like all of them.

As I was answering each individual question I thought to myself, I need a place where all these answers can live.

That's how Craft & Mane Academy was born!

Who is this really for?

Craft & Mane Academy is designed for multiple different kinds of people.  A curly girl, someone who loves wearing their hair smooth, a professional, a stay at home mom or even a middle school girl [who's just learning how to do her hair.]
