๐ŸŒˆ Creative Color ๐ŸŒˆ

Onika has been doing hair magic for over 20 years, never losing her passion to make people look and feel their best. Her love of fashion & hairstyling came at a very young age when she was a hair model for a platform color artist through her teens.It was then that she became inspired by the creative energy backstage at hair shows and decided to do hair full time. She ended up working as a haircutter at a top intercoffuire salon where education and a strong work ethic were instilled from the very beginning of her career. A few years later she moved to beautiful San Francisco and never looked back. She began training as a color expert at Vidal Sassoon, which gave her a strong foundation in her career. She is very knowledgeable with all types of color, including corrective work. She is also well versed in the art of razor cutting and loves to transform a personโ€™s look through color and haircutting.
 
She has traveled all over the country to train with Bumble & Bumble, Vidal Sassoon, Yosh, Christopher and Sonya Dove, Oscar Blandi, Roxie Jane Hunt, Daniel Muldoon, Tracey Cunningham, and Nick Arrojo. She currently travels between San Francisco and Los Angeles for work and New York for fashion week. Her passion for what she does shines through in her work, and it is just one thing that sets her apart in the industry.
 
Outside of work Onika enjoys spending time with her husband and tiny chihuahua, treasure hunting at thrift stores, and cuddling up with a good novel. Inspirations include street art, Mod fashion, and style icons like Diana Vreeland and Grace Coddington.
