Colorist & Designer
Kaio possesses a deep understanding of the bygone eras that laid the foundation of hair styling and glamour, and prides himself in his ability to translate those ideas for the modern world. He studied cosmetology at Tony & Guy Academy, where he was chosen as the first recipient of the annual Michael Mercurio Foundation Scholarship Award recognizing his talents and passion for the hair industry. He also studied makeup artistry at Makeup Forever and M.A.C. in New York City. Kaio was named Best Upcoming Stylist of 2011 by Guia & Laser in Boston. In Los Angeles, Kaio apprenticed with George Papanikolas at Andy Lecompte Salon and Corey Powell at Sally Hershberger. In both of these salons, he regularly worked with celebrity clients, including the Kardashians, Sarah Michelle Geller, Daisy Fuentes, and many others. Kaio’s humble and welcoming spirit immediately puts his clients at ease, but it’s his sophistication, vision, and talent that truly delight them and keep them coming back.
