Nicole Marie (Schneid) Walden - Hairstylist
                  About Me
I have been a licensed cosmetologist for over twelve  years and those twelve years have been packed full with more opportunities than some get in an entire career.  After getting two years of experience in my hometown of Wheeling, WV I moved to Columbus, OH to pursue more education and to better myself as a stylist.
      In Columbus,  I was employed at Atelier Salon., a renowned studio where teaching and customer satisfaction were number one. The owner Mason, a master educator for Martin Parsons, took me under his wing and taught me everything there is to know about haircutting and updo styling. Also at Atelier, I worked hand in hand and received extensive training by a reputable color educator for Goldwell, USA. My color education ranged from color theory and color techniques to always being up on the latest in color development and trends.  Although I only spent three years working in Columbus, my experiences were plenty from doing hair for runway shows for Express and Saks Fifth Ave to working in LA on an educational video and Santa Monica.
    Six years ago, I moved to the Pittsburgh area  to be closer to my family. Here I  found a Goldwell exclusive salon, Ageless Beauty (formerly Jeffery Allen and La Beaute Hair Designs) where I was   able to bring  my experience to and have them teach me even more. Along with enjoying the everyday salon services, I decided to push my career to the next level and in  July 2010, I was hired by Goldwell USA as a technical associate. Over the last four years I trained and worked  with some of the best educators and  top national guest artists in the industry. I am now a nationally certified educator for Goldwell. I get to enjoy going into salons around the Pittsburgh area, teaching them all about our company and products, as well as continuing education for myself at regional and national events.

      As of April 15th 2014, another dream of mine was achieved and I opened Salon304. A small, modern salon with lots of character and fun.  Salon 304 is my new home where my mission is to provide exceptional quality services while promoting healthy, beautiful hair and self confidence in our clients. Salon 304 is a Goldwell Color Salon , as well as offering the Dualsenses Hair Care and Style Sign  as retail products. For more Salon304 info visit
