Mikel realized early in life that he had an interest in the exciting world of hairdressing. After he completed both cosmetology and barber schools, Mikel's love of chemistry steered his career towards a specialty in hair coloring. To start his journey he studied, tested, and obtained his certificate from the American Board of Certified Hair Colorists.
As a colorist, Mikel has been coloring outside the lines in Georgetown's top salons for the past 20 years. He has received both national and local accolades, including features in both Allure and Washingtonian Magazine. Mikel has also had the privilege to appear as an Expert Colorist on the Oprah Winfrey show and made appearances on 2 episodes of the Discovery Channel's Ambush Make Over. Sure, he's colored, cut, and styled many of Washington DC's who's who, but Mikel has a down-to-earth style that is anything but intimidating. Mikel is known for his collaborative approach to hair color and style. He loves new clients, listening carefully to each client's goals and talking with each person about the color "process" and the best ways to achieve each client's desired look. He views color as equal parts art and science. Mikel sees keeping copious records on all his client's appointments as a "must" so that he is able to reproduce colors that he has done before on a client or adjust as needed. If you'd like a completely satisfying experience and a head of beautifully colored, cut and styled hair, he'd love the opportunity to work with you.
