Le Nalu Noir was born from that convergence of art, travel, and design. Its name is an evocation—Nalu (wave) representing the Hawaiian heritage of her husband's family; Noir (black) in French, and, of course, the waves within hair design. The studio setting offers a private, one-on-one experience, where clients can consult with Karyn for personalized recommendations, solutions, and fresh ideas in a variety of aesthetic arenas. Le Nalu Noir uses exclusively organic products, including O&M for color and Oway beauty. In addition to hair, Karyn offers makeup and wardrobe styling services through Le Nalu Noir.
