Anike is a New York based, Nigerian born (Yoruba) vessel of creativity with an infectious smile and effervescent personality.
Following a spiritual directive in 2013, Anike enrolled at the Aveda Institute in SoHo which prepared her to receive her NYS Cosmetology license. With her license in hand, Anike (by chance) met with TRESemme Spokesperson Jeanie Syfu who provided her with sage advise and invited Anike to assist her Lead Team on various shows during NYFW and Bridal Fashion Week. After which, Anike began assisting Lacy Redway full time for two years and later went on to assist several high profile artists within THE WALL GROUP , BRIDGE ARTISTS, Art Partner (to name a few).
Currently, Anike travels internationally during the fashion seasons, working on shows in New York, Milan and Paris with teams led by Guido Palau, Didier Malige, Damien Boissinot, Holli Smith, SHOW DIVISION and James Pecis.
Anike continues to follow that inner calling to learn, collaborate, create and recently completed additional training from the great Sam McKnight in the Hair: Mastered program in 2015 and with Guido Palau in 2017.
