Meet Miho Kitajima, a Tokyo native who takes the art
of hair styling very serious.
She started her studies at home in Japan and in 1999
began braiding hair. After five years of working in
a professional salon in Tokyo, Miho made a very
important trip to New York to learn about Black hair.
Once in NY, she studied under an African hair braider
and soon opened her own salon on 125th street in
Miho now specializes in extensions for all
types of hair. She provides intensive treatment for the
hair and scalp, and is dedicated to helping her
customers solve any problems they may have with
damaged or thinning hair.
Her talent has been featured in many hair shows,
fashion shows and art events around the world. She
has participated in the International Beauty show in New York, as well as the Hair Brazil Professional show in Sao Paulo.
Her reputation as a hairstylist has led to many singers, dancers and models requesting her skills for their photoshoots. However, always looking for the next step in hair.
Miho has on occasion worked directly with hair manufacturers like Kaneka America,
for the promotion and development of their new hair products. In working with these
companies she provides hair product ideas and acts as a consultant for products they may
already have in pre-production.
Miho is also proficient in many hair styling techniques and has been known to provide tutorials at seminars. Her classes range from beginner to advanced level.
