Celebrity hairstylist Taka Tokuyama made his way from Japan to New York City in 2004, beginning his career at the prestigious Warren-Tricomi Salon, and then moving to Patrick Melville Salon.
In 2011, he first opened his own Salon in the Upper East Side, Manhattan. Taka has been able to perfect his craft by creating classic, chic, and sexy styles. Using his unique abilities, he has been able to successfully attract and satisfy a diverse clientele. Mixing his structured Japanese background with a New York City edge, Taka more than meets the demands of the everyday woman, the sophisticated Manhattan elite, and a number of illustrious celebrities.
Throughout his career, Taka has not only worked as a successful stylist in some of the most renowned salons in Manhattan, but as an editorial stylist as well. He has worked with some of the best names in the business, gracing the locks of celebrities such as Lindsey Lohan, Petra Nemcova, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Jessica Szohr, Edison Chen, and Masahiro Tanaka amongst others. Editorial work is like second nature to Taka. He has worked for magazines such as Vogue,Teen Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Nylon.
In addition, he has also done hair for a number of high profile fashion shows in New York City. Taka continues to diffuse his craft in part by training other Japanese-American stylist in his method. His dream is to build a bridge for other Japanese stylists to follow in his footsteps. He has worked with several loyal assistants which he has helped to establish as New York City stylists. This is a part of his work of which he is especially proud.
