Owner, Kiyomi Schulz, opened the doors of Kiyo Salon. Starting out as a 3 chair Salon with no receptionist, Kiyo Salon has done nothing but grow and succeed since its creation.
Kiyomi saw a need for a spa in Nanaimo, and expanded Kiyo Salon into Kiyo Salon & Day Spa; building treatment rooms and offering quality spa treatments and products.
After months of careful location analysis, Kiyomi saw a need for a second location in Parkville. Previously named Mi by Kiyo, now Kiyo Salon & Boutique, opened its doors and has never looked back.
The itch to open a Boutique in Parksville came to fruition. With the careful addition of select jewellery and hair accessories, the boutique has taken off to carry full lines of clothing, accessories and jewellery, all sourced by Kiyomi herself.
Newly branded House of Kiyo now employs a team of over 30 dedicated employees; including a management team, front desk team, assistants, estheticians and of course, our roots, a talented stylist team with a hunger for education and growth.
Kiyomi begins to live her life-long goal and purchases commercial property in preparation to create a new home for Kiyo!
In mid-December, Josh De Waal becomes the new owner of Kiyo Salon & Boutique in Parksville and continues to operate as a sister-salon to Kiyo Salon & Day Spa in Nanaimo
The Nanaimo location official says farewell to our iconic Stewart Avenue location and says hello to the new, custom-built location at 256 Wallace Street in the Old City Quarter of Downtown Nanaimo.
Formally Kiyo Salon & Boutique, Mooi Hair Group is born and independently operated by Josh and the Parksville team.
