Meet our team: Yumi Ishii – Front desk manager


About Yumi I. 


Yumi was born in Chiba, Japan, home of Narita Airport and Tokyo Disneyland.

Throughout her school career, she was extremely interested in her International Culture courses, specializing in the English language. This led to her receiving her degree in International Economics from Reitaku University. She hopes to use this interest and expertise to blend the cultures within communities.

Her true passion, however, lies within the world of dance. She is a House and Hip-Hop dancer. She has used these skills to perform on stages all over the world, and has appeared as a featured dancer for the Latin American group Axxent, and as a dancer for the Persian artist IDIN. She recently danced on "LA'z Finest" dance crew in Hollywood.

She would like to take this chance to say “Thank You” to her family and friends who have been so supportive during all of her endeavors.

She realizes that working for PIA hair salon could be a perfect platform to be a positive influence throughout the world. She takes courage and inspiration from the brave people of Japan, who have survived such recent tragedies as a large earthquake and tsunami, and also constantly reconstruct and reinvent themselves. 

She is extremely excited to begin the journey to bettering herself, and will not hesitate to use the skills she obtains to help others to be their best.

Since moving to the United States in 2004, She has been fortunate to realize her dream of meeting people from all over the world, and to refine her skills as a dancer. She looks forward to the opportunities that the beauty industry has to offer.
