Born and raised in Honolulu, Takara was introduced to the world of hair at a very young age. Growing up his family owned three successful salons in Hawaii.  So when he began his career with Luxelab in 2014, hair was already in his blood.

When Takara formally began his career as a Hairdresser he accepted a coveted apprenticeship with Luxelab, where only a chosen few are offered the opportunity. During this time he has had the privilege of being mentored by some of the industry’s top hairdressers in the arts of Haircutting, Color, Extensions and Styling Hair.
Takara fanatically insists on giving each of his clients the best experience possible. “I want my clients to come to me and feel like they can relax, be pampered and unwind in my chair… all while I bring out the absolute best in their hair”.
Over the years Takara has had the honor of working on exciting photo shoots and stage presentations, as well as being part of the Exclusive Hair Team of LA Fashion Week for several seasons along with some of LA’s top hairdressers, models, photographers, and designers.
When Takara isn’t behind the chair, behind the camera, or backstage, he practices his lifelong love of dance in some of LA’s top dance studios, hikes and explores everything LA has to offer in search of inspiration.
