I washed and styled my curls first making sure they have enough product throughout before diffuse drying. This helps with sectioning with ease and no tangling. I had previously treated this set with Olaplex No.0 & No. 3 before styling them so they are nicely hydrated and bouncy!
Text 818-275-1636 if interested in a set of your own! 😉 From 18 years old to 30 years old... Embracing my curls has taken me further than I can imagine! It has not only helped me in embracing my curly hair & advance me in my career, but more than anything it has helped other’s embrace themselves and their natural hair as well.
All the years of straightening the life out of our natural texture just to feel better about ourselves due to our world reflecting on to us that straight hair is more beautiful, sexy, and accepted.....phew..Honey , that’s long gone. Byy-yeeee! 👋🏽
Harsh Relaxers/chemical straighteners have been the fore front of many as the number one go to when curly hair is just “too much to handle” Not to mention, wigs or weaves that are not anything like our natural texture. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have options in hairstyling . I love a smoothed out blow dry once in a while for a little switch up. Although, I’ve come to realize that’s not my only option for my natural hair to make me feel beautiful, sexy, or accepted.
The point of it all is acceptance of your truest self😉 #howitstartedvshowitsgoing Laughter kills all ills!
Stay joyful & Keep shining 💫 They told me I could be anything I wanted . I wanted to make people feel beautiful so I became a hairstylist!
For appointments text 818-275-1636 You guys My client has NEVER seen her curls look like her after before!
I am so happy to help bring out this beautiful head of natural curls and be a big part of her new look! That’s what it’s about is serving and helping bring out that inner shine!
I used Olaplex No. 1 & 2 after cutting. Styled curls with @innersenseorganics ICreate Hold Gel and gave her No .0 & No.3 to use at home so she can strengthen her curls before we color in a few weeks!
Watch out everyone we have a new curly on the island😉 Olaplex is my right hand product to go to when it comes to strengthening hair whether it be from chemical , heat or even environmental damage. Living on an island, environmental damage is what my curls combat with and I am so happy to have @olaplex to rely on! Major #curlflex !

I’m Raquel Noriko your Blasian Curl Queen specializing all color, curly cuts, and all things beautiful hair on Maui.
I absolutely love with a passion what I do helping women embrace their natural texture just as it is. It’s the bringing out the confidence in you guys that really does it for me!
11 years ago I visioned myself behind the chair when at the salon getting my hair done . It really started from getting really badly done hair jobs just because I have curly hair. Settling when the stylist turned me around to see my “blown out” hair (still puffy, frizzy) just because they didn’t know how to really do curly hair was what I did alot of. It wasn’t until I became a stylist then that I started really embracing my own natural texture and wanted to really help others embrace theirs too. The number one topic of discussion that come and sits in my chair is growing up with curly hair. Whether from a biracial background , black, asian or white. It’s all relative. Seeing my client’s faces light up when they see what their curls or waves can do is everything to me! I absolutely love helping you guys!
This year makes 5 years servicing Maui and I’m beyond thrilled to be back home here doing what I love! My native Cali girl hustle and island girl heart has sustained me and I am pumped to be serving you while we seek to live out our best lives! The best part about this career is seeing such beautiful souls shine and thrive ! ⠀ ⠀ Its been huge to witness the love and community on Maui come together to support the black and brown community here.⠀ ⠀ We are all in this together and honing in on the love toward each other as a sisterhood and simply as a human race is what it’s about. ⠀ Being a part of something way bigger by celebrating the legacies are represented. ⠀ Collective collaboration with @angiediazphotography and @wovenlens was nothing short of straight magic and made with love for you beautiful melanin queens
