Homegrown on the West Coast, Miko grew up in the free-spirited Kitsilano of the 80s, spending summers in Northern BC on her dad’s fishing boat. In 2010 she began her training at the Aveda Institute and has continued refining her skills through Aveda’s Advanced Academy, Vidal Sassoon and various specialized courses.
Miko is known for helping her clients achieve a style that suits their individual needs. She takes the time to make each guest in her chair feel comfortable, and considers everything from hair type and texture to maintenance and personal style during consultations.
Her colour work shines with seamless natural colour and lightening techniques, and she loves rooty blondes and bright beachy highlights. She’s very proficient with freehand cutting to release wave and curl, and texturizing for volume and movement. 90s-inspired grunge looks, classic shapes, short barbered fades and fringes of all kinds are some of her favourite cutting styles, and her attention to detail and refinement gives longevity to her cuts.
Miko loves to travel and find inspiration from people and cultures around the globe, but is most importantly inspired by her clients’ own unique personalities and visions.
