I’m sure I’ve stated this before but I’m a real beauty nut, and when it comes to our master bathroom the countertop is filled with lots of different types and brands of makeup because if you ask me there is no such thing as too much makeup!!! And the same thing goes for our shower being filled with different brands and types of shampoos and conditioners and then back to the counter being cluttered with different hair care products, but like I tell my husband it’s because I care about my hair and the way it looks and all the damage that I have done to it in the past it really needs all the TLC it can get and with it being all thin and flat I have a lot of products that promise to give it volume and life, so with that said when I was given the opportunity to review some products from Nick Chavez Beverly Hills I was soooooo excited!
About Nick Chavez Beverly Hills (Taken From Website):
About NickAs a young boy from Yuma, Arizona, Nick Chavez dreamed of one day having an exciting, glamorous life. Being the second-oldest of seven children, Nick was no stranger to hard work as one of the family’s ranch hands. But it was his skill at grooming the family’s horses and his determination and confidence that led him to grow. Armed with just his scissors (and a fierce sense of style), Nick took his natural talents to the next level by creating hip, trendy hairstyles for his siblings and members of his extended family.
After honing his talents on his now very receptive relatives, Nick made the jump to California, where he immediately began working in a prominent Beverly Hills salon. Nick quickly advanced from apprentice to full-fledged hairdresser, developing a strong clientele and an even stronger reputation.
But once again, Nick’s talents extended outwards.
He became an actor and model and his tour of Europe (working with designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves St. Laurent and Valentino), was so successful that it lead to magazine covers in Vogue, GQ, Elle, and Esquire and a 100-foot billboard in Times Square. As an actor, Nick appeared on television shows such as “The Young and the Restless” and “Hollywood Detectives.”
Yet, the adventures and accomplishments that Nick felt in acting and modeling could not match the passion and fulfillment that he experienced as a hairdresser, so he decided to return to Beverly Hills—this time as the proprietor of his own salon.
Building on his former reputation, Nick’s salon immediately garnered such clientele as Margeaux Hemmingway, Lisa Hartmann, and Belinda Carlisle. Presently, Nick works with Maria Shriver, Ivana Trump, George Lopez, Queen Noor and Michelle Stafford. Nick, however, struggled with finding quality hair care products for his varied customers. True to his highly ambitious character, Nick took matters into his own hands and developed his own line, Nick Chavez Beverly Hills. Nick is committed to helping his customers achieve that “Every Day Gorgeous™” look through healthy, shiny, beautiful hair.
In addition to his prominence as a hairstylist, Nick’s highly successful line of products is currently sold at Ulta retail stores, across the United States, and is featured on home shopping channel’s such as QVC (U.S.) in the United States and internationally, on QVC (Germany), QVC (Japan) and The Shopping Channel in Canada. In addition, Nick’s products are widely sold through the internet and can be found on such e-commerce sites like beauty.com, dermstore.com, folica.com, qvc.com, and of course nickchavezbeverlyhills.com.
Because of his amazing hair and makeover transformations, Nick Chavez also appears regularly on the talk show circuit on such shows as "E! Fashion Emergency,” "The Montel Williams Show," and "Extreme Makeovers.”
With his tony Beverly Hills salon, his celebrity clientele and his prosperous line of hair care products, Nick has become the self-made entrepreneur. Living the exciting and glamorous life that he always dreamed of.
Nick's SalonThe Nick Chavez Salon is located in the heart of Beverly Hills. "It's hard not to notice the lights, camera, action atmosphere", noted one reviewer. Staying connected to the salon has allowed Nick the chance to continually test out and improve groundbreaking products in one of the most demanding markets for fashion and beauty. For more information call (310) 247-1838.
Nick's FamilyNick comes from a large Mexican American family (with Yaqui and Quechan Indian blood in there too), the second oldest of seven children – four girls and three boys. His siblings from oldest to youngest are: John, Sue, Sonya, Joseph, Sandra, and Sherri. His parents, Kathryn and Juan, have been together for almost forty-five years, and as a family, are extraordinarily close and very proud of one another. The heroic Cesar Chavez, political activist and founder of the United Farm Workers union, is Nick’s third cousin.
Nick’s father is a farmer, and Nick grew up on a ranch outside Yuma, Arizona, in the Gila Valley. Like much of Arizona, its desert terrain and the temperature can climb to 120º F during the summer. But Nick loved it then and loves it now.
Giving BackNick Chavez Beverly Hills actively provides charitable support and contributions to numerous organizations and programs, including the United States Armed Services (through donations to the Armed Services YMCA), the Lancaster Traffic Club, the Global Aid Network, the City of Hope National Medical Center, the Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis, The Carousel of Hope, the Lupus LA Foundation, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the Alzheimer's Association, the American Cancer Society, and the G & P Foundation for Cancer Research.
Nick Chavez also maintains close ties to his community by donating both his time and efforts to local outreach programs such as the Neighborhood Coalition for Shelters, the Crenshaw Community Outreach Program, United in Harmony, the California Adult Education Center, and "Noches de Ninos" at the Los Angeles Children's Hospital.
I was sent several hair products from Nick Chavez Beverly Hills to review and they to promised to give my hair body and life, but to be quite honest here I’ve heard that story before and I’ve got several bottles of other brands half full still sitting in my shower because they didn’t do as they promised but with an open mind I gave these products a shot!
The first items I received was a bottle of Volumizing Shampoo and a bottle of Volumizing Conditioner to review and I immediately started using these products and I’ve been using them for a couple of weeks now and I have to say I have finally fell in love with a Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner that actually does exactly what it says it’s supposed to! My hair has never had this much volume nor looked this great in my entire life and the best part is that you only have to use a tiny amount of this shampoo and conditioner for it to work and the smell is so heavenly and lingers throughout the day to keep my hair looking great and smelling fresh no matter where I end up having to go!
Next I was sent Nick Chavez Beverly Hills Volumizing Extra Hold Hairspray, and this hairspray is just as wonderful as the Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner and really gives my hair the final touch and hold that it needs to outlast my hectic daily schedule! Again as with the Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner a little of the hairspray goes along way and holds all day long! I’m loving not only the volume that this hairspray adds to my hair when I spray it on my lifted roots but the bounce that it gives my hair and it doesn’t leave it all stiff like other hairsprays I’ve tried!
I would recommend Nick Chavez Beverly Hills hair care products to everyone even if you aren’t looking for lots of volume like I was, I’m sure Mr. Chaves has the perfect products for your hair and what you want to achieve from your hair care products!
