Jikaiah is a passionate person when it comes to teaching and performing her craft globally. She is personally driven by her feminist views about beauty, her desire to expand the limited mindset around hair and it's available methods around education. Inclusiveness around all hair types and textures from fine and thin to coarse and thick, from straight to curly.
Jikaiah believes there is a way to cut it all with little limitations when you are stacked with all the tools and methods for every client!
Creating hair that has high style impact but that also is effortless and easy, with most her clients raving how they only need a cut 2-3 times a year and how great they look rolling straight out of bed is her signature stamp!
Beyond hair Jikaiah is deeply passionate about helping women who have suffered trauma and advocating for equal rights for all, painting, practicing reiki and all things that have to do with empowering women and creating art.
With all of these passions and almost 20 years behind the chair, she brings a unique style to the industry. Coming to NYC from
San Francisco's famed Edo Salon & Gallery.
( Known best for bringing the Shag haircut and razored bobs into style.) She trained under the famed owner Jayne Matthews with numerous hands on classes while working there.
"I'm all about freeing and releasing the hair. I want my clients' natural waves and textures to come to life and I want to do it so it can air dry gorgeously. I am not a stylist of the roundbrush. My technique is about hand styling and teaching my clients how, with the right few products and personalized carved out cut, they can put down the brush and let their hair be free. I love loose shapes and big curls! I want to see the hair move from a sexy shag effortlessly into a swept up ponytail with French fringe and pieces falling out without care."
