Who is Nik?

My name is Nik Trowbridge, and I entered into the Beauty industry at 18 years old after growing up as a tomboy(ironically). After searching for the right salon to make a home for myself (finding that more challenging then I originally anticipated), I “accidentally” opened my first salon 18 years ago.

Throughout this process, a lot of learning happened. Fortunately, I had brilliant mentors and a high pain tolerance, which served me well in running a salon company.

So that little salon named Statements the Salon located in Woodbridge, VA has grown to approximately 50 employees grossing around $2.8 million per year. This happened with business systems and an environment that encourages team growth.

I also have an amazing school named Statements the Academy.  We have a time-tested curriculum that transitions students to become fully booked stylists in lightning speed. I’ve been lucky enough to be an educator with a lot of amazing companies like TIGI, Goldwell, AcademyPro, Paul Mitchell Academy guest artist, just to name a few.

Because of this journey, I began a salon consulting company in order to share my experiences as a stylist and salon owner. The knowledge that I gained has defined me and initiated a burning aspiration of educating in a way that’s convenient, broad, and affordable for everyone. In a light bulb moment, the concept of The Statements Project was born.

I hope to add to my future bio: Helped members of the Beauty industry to accelerate their careers and grow incredible salon environments!
