Ever since Mikayla walked through The Hair Parlour’s doors in 2017, she has been an integral part of the salon. Her kind spirit matched with her detail-oriented mindset makes for an amazing client experience that leaves everyone feeling beautiful on the inside and out. But Mikayla is more than a stylist—she’s also a friend, mother, partner, and overall beautiful soul. To better introduce Mikayla, we interviewed her and asked her some of her favorite things. Each week, we will be introducing the women of The Hair Parlour on the blog so that our followers can get to know us on a more personal level. 

Favorite Local Shop: Dear Society! @shopdearsociety has two locations, one on Broadway and one in The Bauer, where The Hair Parlour is located. The woman owned shop carries the best vintage and contemporary brands, always styling their clothes in a new and unique way. They have the best style inspo if you’re wanting to up your fashion game.

Favorite Way to Practice Self Care: Showering and stretching at night followed by a cup of hot tea is Mikayla’s favorite way of putting her day to rest. Yes, she’s an old soul at heart. 

Favorite Hair Trend: Cool Girl Waves! With the warm weather finally here, she’s all about those natural, lived-in waves that make it look like you just walked off the beach. 

Favorite TV Show and Music: If you haven’t seen AP Bio on Hulu, you’re seriously missing out. Glenn Howerton from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars in this show that will make you laugh out loud. When it comes to music, Mikayla has been digging Logic, Halsey, and of course, Ariana Grande.

Favorite Hair Product: Our newest addition to our shop, the Oway Root Spray has been Mikayla’s latest fave. It adds lift and volume without weight down your hair or toxic ingredients. Her long time favorite, Project Sukuroi, is the smoothing balm you didn’t know you needed. Filled with golden specks, this product will add hold to your hair while smoothing it naturally.

Favorite Thing About The Hair Parlour: The shop energy makes Mikayla feel good. The strong team of women especially has created such a good workspace. “We’re all close, get along together, and vibe well. We’re in it together!”
