Mikelah, Hairstylist

Hey! My name is Mikelah, and I have a passion for beauty and connection with others. Towards the start of my career, I received advanced Aveda training as well as Vidal Sassoon precision cutting education, and I’m now trained in Eufora color customization. I’ve taken many in-depth color classes and have learned advanced color formulation and methodology. During my career, I’ve mastered a wide range of techniques and I enjoy working with all hair types. Specializing in color, I have a passion for blonde and balayage, as well as creating blended and low maintenance styles.

I absolutely love the opportunity to build relationships with my clients and explore options with them, discovering the best cut and color for each guest based on preferences, lifestyle, and hair type. I understand that hair is a distinctive part of a person’s image and it should reflect their internal beauty and be an extension of their personality. Ensuring every client leaves the salon feeling beautiful and confident is my highest priority.
