One of my favorite perks of being an established beauty blogger is that I periodically get invited to experience some of the most coveted and talented beauty professionals in Los Angeles. My most recent indulgence was scoring an appointment with celeb stylist Mika Fowler at Gavert Atelier one of the hottest and hippest hair salons in LA.
Mika Fowler is one of the most sought after hair stylists in Beverly Hills, especially among some of Hollywood's A-List celebrities. Why all this fuss about Mika you ask? Mika is a super sweet, trend savvy and uber talented stylist who specializes in the art of the DRY CUT, a cutting technique that she has developed and mastered over the years which takes a person's natural hair chemistry, flow and bounce into account to perfectly shape each creation. This unique and finessed haircut is done on dry hair so that Mika can precisely see how your hair falls and moves and then she customizes your cut to the unique shape of your features and flow of your hair. Her inspiration for each hair creation comes directly from the client – the client’s face, style and bone structure are all taken into account prior to the first snip of the sheers.
I loved Mika's bohemian chic outfit!
Mika first developed her dry cutting technique in Japan, one of the most fashion forward places in the world, and then later she perfected it at Vidal Sassoon. Following her success in Japan and at Sassoon, Mika took on Beverly Hills and now works at Gavert Atelier where she continues to impress her savvy clientele with stellar cutting precision.
Right when I met Mika, I knew that I was in gifted hands because not only did she look hip and fashionable herself, but she really took her time analyzing my hair, face and lifestyle to create a cut that not only flattered my face, but it is also super easy to manage and style myself. Plus it has grown out beautifully. Here are a couple of pictures that truly capture the beauty of this stunning cut
So what do you think? Pretty nice cut, right? My hair looked SO healthy and refreshed after this cut that I just marveled at how beautifully it fell into place and how much it flattered my face. It's certainly nice to be treated like a celebrity every once in a while, and in Mika's gifted hands I certainly felt special.
Mika can be found at Gavert Atelier at 9666 Brighton Way in Beverly Hills, CA 310.858.7898. Mika's haircuts are $250 and are worth every penny!
