I was insprired to do hair when...

Growing up in Japan in a world surrounded by creativity,  it was very natural for me to follow those footsteps. My parents were artists too, so I loved drawing and painting. I also admired my grandmother who was always so fashionable and would design all of her own clothing.  

My style is...

I love doing classic precision cuts. When clients come in and request anything creative that excites me, and those most definitely are my strong suits. For me, doing hair color has always felt like playing at work.  I love doing funky fashion colors, blonding, and color corrections. 

IF I'M NOT AT ARTFORM, YOU CAN FIND ME AT...

Kinship Yoga or getting lost in nature on a hike!
