Born in Houston and raised in eagle river Alaska, Annika has loved all things beauty her whole life. From braiding her teammate's hair in volleyball to doing her own prom hair and makeup she had fun with it all. During her junior year of high school, she was certain she wanted to be a hairdresser, so she took a leap of faith and planted roots in Austin texas after graduating from high school in 2019.
She went to school at Paul Mitchell school Austin and became licensed in august 2020. From there she completed a color internship, then assisted Laura to gain even more color & extension knowledge. She specializes in blondes and foiling, but loves all things balayage.
