Surfacing with Mio Sota


Surfacing, a NAHA winning collection with a difference – haunting, heartbreaking, moving, and empowering. Inspired by complete strangers Mio has met and their incredible stories that they were brave and kind enough to share with her...

"The body paint reflects the hardships we experience, sometimes feeling like those days will never end. But there will come a day, where we can open our eyes and breath, and see no darkness, only beauty, even if it's for a glimpse of a moment,” says Mio Sota, 2017 NAHA Hairstylist of the Year with this outstanding collection.
