I've had a passion for hair my entire life. I attended Hair Academy in Maryland and have been a professional hair stylist for over 10 years in Maryland and Virginia. IN that time I have mastered a wide range of hair techniques including long hair, cutting, styling and color. However my specialty and passion has been hair extensions and makeup. I believe in continual education and strive to stay at the forefront of my field with my knowledge of new products and services available in order to provide excellent service to my clientele. I stay updated on the latest trends so I can better meet your needs in today's ever changing beauty society. I place high value on listening to my client's needs and make it a priority to meet their expectations.I strive for unlimited creativity in the world of EDGE- by Mikelia. In my spare time I enjoy experimenting with makeup and keeping up to date with latest fashion and beauty trends. Looking forward to servicing you!
Mikelia is very good at her craft & it shows in her work while she's just an awesome hairstylist with a beautiful soul!!!

The first time I came to Mikelia I was in tears, literally! A stylist at another shop had over processed my hair and it was falling out in clumps. She was kind enough to squeeze me in and pretty much worked on me all day, from cutting out all the damaged hair to installing a full weave. Through the whole time she was kind and chatty helping to take my mind off my hair disaster. And the final results were AMAZING! I was a loyal customer from there on out. If you value customer service AND quality, come see Mikelia.

Mikelia is the best. She's the only person I let touch my hair, I don't even do my hair myself. She's done everything from extensions to color for my sister and I. She's the sweetest stylist ever and I always leave looking 500x better.

If you are a guy, and you care about your hair, you know how tricky it can be to find a good stylist. This particular one is pretty good, and Mikelia is hands down the best there. She's just good with people. (Awkward some times when someone has their hands in your hair but doesn't speak with you.) Been going pretty routinely now for over a year and no complaints. Definitely book in advance, and go during the week as it is seemingly more open.

"Mikelia did an amazing job on my daughter's hair. She is very nice and knowledgeable about hair care. She I will definitely bring my daughter back and I will for sure book an appointment for myself!!!"

Absolutely amazing stylist. I won't trust anyone else with my hair. You know how you go to a hairdresser and they just do your hair? Well not here. She really pays attention to who you are and can give you exactly what you want. She will eve make recommendations which is what I like. At this point I can sit in her chair and say "I don't know what I want, but I bet you do." And after a few clarifying questions she works her magic. She has hit the nail on the head every single time. I have NEVER, I repeat NEVER walked out of there without being completely 100% satisfied.

Mikelia is my hair salvation!! I don't trust my hair care to just anyone. I had decided to transition out my perm (which I was still on fence about) and not brave the big chop. So finding a hair stylist/dresser/miracle worker was a priority. So when my coworker (who usually rocks a more "liberal/funky" look) recommended Mikelia, I was a little skeptical. Mikelia has been so very patient and encouraging over the last nine months. She has suggestions, but doesn't push too far. She answers questions without being annoyed (and I had a lot of questions!). She treats her clients with the most utmost respect and professionalism. She has her own one-woman space. It's cozy, clean, and not subject to your typical salon atmosphere. I've never spent more than 2 hours in the chair for a shampoo/roller set (and/or blow dry/curl, trim and deep condition). And her prices are affordable! Besides her awesome skills as a stylist, Mikelia is just a cool person to know. She's sweet, caring, ambitious, genuine, and easy to talk to. I look forward to and find comfort in not finding another stylist in the DMV.
