he’s moved on to open eponymous salons at the Montage Hotels/Resorts in Beverly
Hills, Laguna Beach and Las Vegas, it is nice to see that he also has an eye
for talent that live up to the standards of elegance he established a decade
ago. I had the privilege to spend a few hours having my hair revitalized
by stylist, Mika Fowler and colorist, Toyomi Ishukura. While Toyomi
clearly possesses Vo’s knack for spot-on hair color (even with an easier to
maintain single process and much-needed root coverage), Mika performed her
signature dry cut on me cleaning up my unruly six-week frizzies. With the
eye and focus of a surgeon, she not only reconciled my too-thick bangs with the
rest of my hair but also explained how she would fix the stray short piece to
blend more readily into the rest of my still-growing-out tresses.
Although their client list reads like an issue of In Style (Olivia Munn, Annalynne McCord, Emma Roberts, Rosario Dawson, Karina Smirnoff, Ali Fedotowsky), Mika and Toyomi are as personable and attitude free as you would want a reliable cutter and colorist to be. Name recognition aside, like Vo, everybody’s a star in their capable hands.
