HAIR STYLIST (NEW YORK, TOKYO)
Yukiko Tajima grew up in the popular tourist and surfing destination town of Shonan, Japan. As a teenager she spent much of her time drawing and painting comic strips before she realized her true passion for styling hair when she was just 14 years old. After finishing high school and attending beauty school, Yukiko moved to Tokyo where she worked in a prestigious salon frequented by fashion clients, designers, models and actors.
Yukiko says her creativity is inspired by nature and particularly the beautiful four seasons of her hometown, and that “a photo shoot is just like drawing” for her. Yukiko is now based in New York City and works for a wide range of editorial and fashion clients.
