Salon life runs in Shelby’s blood as much as her native Oregon. Following the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, she is a brilliant hair stylist and aesthetician. (Too bad she had to give up a potential rugby career!) We are happy that she opted to join our team here at 50th Avenue Salon instead 2 years ago. Fun-loving and fierce, yet subtle and refined, Shelby can do it all—from snazzy highlights to flattering cuts and facial waxing. She also loves doing kids’ hair!

MikaMika, Hair Stylist

Days:

Mika was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and absolutely loves the city she lives in–the great food, the incredible local music scene, the beautiful scenery and the awesome people. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from Portland State University in 2005 and has over 14 years of retail and customer service experience.  She has managed retail stores and a spa, working with soft-lines and hard-lines. In 2011 she decided to leave retail management, go back to school, and pursue her creative outlet and dream of being a hairstylist and colorist.  She is drawn to hair’s ability to connect with people and make them feel beautiful on the inside and out.

Style is her passion, and hair is her canvas. She is inspired by the music she loves and draws upon a wide range of influences, including 60’s mod, 70’s punk, 90’s goth and hip hop.  She loves to dance and work out; she enjoys film (all time favorite: Rosemary’s Baby), literature (anything with vampires), making hair clips, barrettes and collages, and keeping up with what’s current on the runways.

After the birth of her first child in August of 2015, she will be returning to work part-time in December of 2015 and available for all your hair coloring, hair cutting and special occasion hair needs.
