NIcci Welsh is the Lead Educator of International Training for Oribe. She tours the world sharing her expertise, while also executing her looks on models for ad campaigns as well as high fashion, editorial, film, television and celebrity work.

Recently, Welsh was in town for NYFW and took some time to host a one-day hands-on intensive workshop for 20 advanced braiders where she shared her insider tips and techniques for innovative finishes.
