Raquel Noriko 's passion for people as well as curly hair is seen through her intuitive approach and cutting style to each client and their needs.
In 2015 , she had the opportunity to travel, train and teach fellow stylists, students, and consumers throughout the US cutting and hair care techniques for textured hair with Deva Curl where she started her educating career. February 2020 she embarked on her own and is now educating and repping for herself.
While curly hair is a passion of Raquel's she also loves coloring and styling all hair types as it brings the true artist out in her craft. Raquel has worked at numerous blow dry bars and salons, such as Dry Bar and Blo Blow Dry Bar in Southern California, being well rounded in styling, updos, color services and more.
All hair textures are welcome although curly hair is now her mere focus.
"My passion for hair and love for people is what brought me into this beautiful career I have been blessed to have for the past twelve years. I felt called to Maui after stepping foot on the island for the first time on a vacation years ago. The indescribable feeling one gets when 'called' to the island is a strong one. I am so happy I listened to it and blessed that Maui embraced me. For me growing up biracial and identifying with both my African American & Japanese roots, I have always had a love for culture and diversity. Hawaii's culture is something I respect and have grown in adoration for since living on the island. I love helping women find their inner beauty and confidence through embracing what is naturally their own. With my Los Angeles native hustle and island girl heart, I am grateful to live out my dreams on Maui doing what I love and servicing others. I can not wait to share more with you all soon as I have more exciting things to bring to you all!" -Raquel Noriko
I help women embrace their natural hair effortlessly one curly head at a time.
I believe that our confidence as women starts with embracing ourselves at our core. For us naturally curly hair women, that begins with our hair. -Raquel Noriko
