Hey, Im Mikaela or Mikki, I actually really do love longs walks on the beach with my big furry dogman Bosley. After working 11 years in some of Melbournes’ top salons, having access to the highest standards of training in all aspects of hair, I really perfected my skills. I believe beautiful hair starts with the best knowledge – so educating my clients on how to achieve the best results is my passion.
When did you start hairdressing: I started hairdressing at age 15 already knowing since I was a little girl – it was exactly my dream job!
Do you have a specialty? I specialise in blondes and balayage, I could do a good blonde day in and day out. However I do go crazy for a good brunette or copper hair colour transformation
Which star sign are you? Im a Virgo technically but having been born 6 weeks early my mum still believes I should be a Libra
What’s your best hair tip? When curling your hair always let the hair completely cool before brushing out to get the longevity out of the style
What is your biggest hair regret? As an apprentice, my boss turned my hair white and that night at the nightclub I was the laughing stock because I was a walking glowstick under all the florescent lights
Who is your most memorable guest? Haha I definitely love saying I looked after Shane Warne or Warney – Just goes to show my bogan roots
What is your biggest industry achievement? I have been lucky enough over my years of hairdressing to have worked backstage at multiple Melbourne fashion weeks And have had my work published in fashion magazines like Lucy’s magazine and tinsel Tokyo.
Where’s your favourite place you’ve travelled to? I have been really spoilt in my life and done loads of amazing travel, but definitely Japan is my fave – I have been 4 times, to shred the snow and also to explore the amazing culture and eat all the food!
Who’s your celeb crush? To be honest, celebs just don’t really do it for me
“Ur famous who cares”
Sweet or savoury? Savoury all the way but don’t get me around if there’s choccy in the room – it’s not safe!
Beer or wine? Im definitely a vino drinker, whether I can handle my wines is a different story
Blonde or brunette? Blonde definitely
Stay up late or go to bed early? Weekends up late, school nights u won’t see me later than 9 pm
