TEAM

KOJI 

Celebrated for his cutting edge style and flawless color technique, hair stylist Koji Toyoda’s undeniable craft is not surprising considering his extensive training in the art of hair design and color. Born and raised in Japan, Koji comes from a long line of renowned Japanese hairstylists. Beginning his professional career in Japan at the age of 18, Koji studied among the top hairstylists in Japan, becoming an established artist himself by the age of 20. During his six year stint in Tokyo, Koji worked in salons and freelanced, perfecting his skills on celebrities and musicians alike. Recognized by magazines and television programs for the most fashionable hairstyles of the year, Koji was praised for promotional work with Christian Dior and Shu Uemura. In search of a greater challenge, Koji moved to Los Angeles where he began his professional career in America at a prestigious salon in West Hollywood. Before long, Koji gained national recognition and acclaim for the creation of original hair designs for celebrities and models. In 2004, Koji opened his own hair studio—KOJI TOYODA AT KINARA—that flourished for 7 years. In 2011, Koji decided to open his own salon in Sunset Plaza to focus entirely on hair. Says Koji of his new salon—“I think I created a perfect environment to do the best work of my career.”

EUGENE COLOR SPECIALIST/STYLIST/EDITORIAL STYLIST

Los Angeles native, Eugene Seav would always experiment with his any willing participant.  This grew into a passion for the beauty industry when he realized how much the power of a blow dryer, curling iron, and a few bobby pins could change the self-esteem and persona of a woman.  The feeling of happiness he got from his transformed friends and family led to his decision to enroll at Paul Mitchell. At Paul Mitchell he was finally learning and doing what had become a passion for him.  After graduating, he delved into the freelance world of hair, gaining experience in editorial fashion shoots and film sets.  Although he enjoyed the excitement of freelance work, Eugene wanted the opportunity to further his skills in cut and color under a master stylist.  With extensive training and knowledge from both Koji and Takeshi, Eugene is now focusing on cut, color, and style in the salon environment. With a keen sense for the fashion-forward and intense creativity, Eugene is ready to become next generation’s star stylist.
