Kayla Michele's stunning editorial and runway work has been instrumental in shaping the fashion scene.

Kayla developed a natural sense of design at an early age while working at her mother's floral shop. During this time, she refined her eye by learning balance and proportion, design lines and color theory. With this knowledge and a love of fashion, it was a natural transition into the realm of hairstyling. Kayla moved to New York City in 2008 to quickly find her work on the covers of magazines and working for Guido & Didier backstage on the top fashion shows internationally. Her attention to detail and limitless range makes her an asset to any team. 

When and how did you get started in this industry?

Growing up I had an influential history in design working at mothers floral boutique. I was introduced to hairdressing in my high school years and fashion had always peaked my interests which brought me to New York. 

“The consistency of the texture after every use is amazing, even wash after wash.”
