// Nicki Smith //


In 2018 Nicki was on the search for a beautiful little salon to call her own. A woman filled with endless inspiration, ideas and drive she knew she needed to venture out on her own to give her clients the experience she felt they truly deserved, and so she came across House Of Rozario; a beautiful boutique salon already established and waiting for someone to take it to another level. After 2 years of hard work, in 2020 NASH was born! A place to now truly call her own, giving Nicki the freedom to do what she loves.

Our director/owner Nicki was raised in Perth but has been a long term Darwin local. Nicki has dreamed of a space where the people in it can run wild with creativity, feel completely at ease and be relaxed the minute they walk through the doors. Her radiant positivity and serene personality shines bright and is reflected onto each person who sits in her salon chairs.

With a passion for the industry, Nicki has always envisioned a place where people could come and receive a personalised and professional service whilst still feeling comfortable, relaxed and revived. She prides herself on really getting to know her clients through honesty, trust and her love of hair. She loves to have a laugh, and even a hug when you need it most, her long standing clientele are a reflective of this.

Hi! I’m Johanna – The gal behind SHADY INK Darwin. I’ve been in the Makeup industry for 14 years.

So why the name ‘SHADY INK’? Well, let’s just say I’m Shady – but not in the way you think! I’m shady as I work with various shades of makeup; I customise shades of Brow & Henna tints AND I shade while I tattoo brows. I LOVE to sketch – Again, SHADING – you will see them around my studio so hope to see you there! Jo xo
