Niccell Shapiro
Niccell ShapiroLicensed Aesthetician and Nail Technician
Until the age of 18, Niccell lived with her family in Cuba, where she realized that no matter where her path would lead, she must remain passionate and focused to developing her skills
Niccell recalls that during her time in Cuba, what she enjoyed most was helping others feel good about themselves… and that very often, changing the way people looked would also improve how they felt. With a great sense of eagerness, she knew that she was about to embark on a wonderful career in skin beauty and wellness.

When Niccell moved to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, she found work at several highly rated salons and spas where she learned as much as she could about products, techniques and new trends. Niccell obtained her Aesthetician license in 2000 and began specializing in European Facials, Anti-Aging & Acne Peels, Depilatory Services (waxing), Spray Tanning, and Specialty Body Treatments.

Along with special memories from Cuba, Niccell brought to America her intense passion to apply her talents and help every client feel amazing. Niccell’s philosophy for skin care is much like she feels about life: never deliver less than perfection! So much so, that her peers at the Grand Beauty Day Spa actually nicknamed her “Magic Baby Hands”! Please come by and visit Niccell for a truly magical experience!
