My story.


Hi, I'm Kimiko.

I love how my work as a hairstylist plays a role in people’s lives. Not only do I get to make others feel beautiful, but I get to help them truly express themselves.

My pursuit to become a Master Stylist began in 2009. After graduating from from JCI’s Hair Art Design program, I went on to study advanced cutting and colouring at Vidal Sassoon in London, UK. After nearly a decade of doing hair, I still get excited every time I walk into the salon each morning. 

My work is inspired by the calming nature of the ocean. The feeling I get when at the beach is something I try to recreate for my clients. When I'm not talking about my new favourite hair products and styling techniques, I’m relaxing on the beach. In fact, Im going. Right now.
