About Tik

Owner / Master Hair Stylist and Makeup Artist.

Sa-Wat-dee (Hello in Thai),

Born in the Thailand province of Si Sa Ket, Tik has lived in San Francisco for over 10 years. Her passion is beautifying her clients from the inside out, the essence of her Buddhist philosophy, a process that creates a sense of personal healing felt by all her clients.

She applies this philosophy in transforming your hairstyle with a cut, shaping, highlights, or color as she seeks out a client's inner beauty, something she complements with suggestions about enhancing makeup.

And you will love the transformation as she massages your scalp the Thai way -- with deep conditioning for healing and relaxation. The result: both Western and Eastern approaches that help you express your best self everyday.

She's a licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist, with training in the original Thai massage " Wat Po." And so much more as she interacts with clients and everyone she meets, bringing a message of love and peace.

Tik would like to offer special thanks to all her beautiful clients for the opportunity of sharing their inner beauty with her, just as she loves sharing with them the secret to aiding that inner beauty emerge and become more apparent to others.

She believes that formerly hidden inner beauty can easily radiate out, and she can do just for you as your stylist.

Love and Peace from Tik
