Meet your bridal hairstylist

Hi, I’m Kira!

I’ve been in the hair biz since 2013, and started my career working behind the chair doing colours, cuts, and highlights at a salon. In 2018, I branched out on my own to focus on my passion, bridal hair, and Pärla Hair was born! I love building genuine connections and going above and beyond for my brides, it’s just who I am! When you book Pärla Hair for your special day, you know you’re working with a stylist that values consistency and high quality hairstyling. I want your wedding day to be just how you imagined it!

Kira was so amazing! She styled my hair along with my 3 bridesmaids and 2-year old flower girl for my wedding in April 2022. She was so personable, professional and easy-going. She listened to what each girl envisioned and styled everyone's hair so beautifully! She was able to do loose buns with them staying in so securely all night long. I did a trial with Kira and she was so open to feedback and remembered every detail for the day of. Kira also lent me beautiful hair clips for the day of which was so kind! I cannot recommend Kira enough!

Even better than expected

Even better than expected

Our wedding was made infinitely better by having Kira part of our day! When my fiancé and I were looking to find a hair stylist for our groomswomen, we found Kira's Instagram and were immediately in love with her talent. In between then and now, us and our groomswomen have been DROOLING over her photos. Her hair styling on the day was even better than we expected. Everyone was so pleased with their hair and it lasted perfectly all night. Also, Kira was a wonderful and fun addition to our getting ready room. Thank you again!!!

Surpassed all of my expectations

After postponing our wedding countless times, I needed to find a new hair stylist with 1 month of our new date.... I found Kira on instagram, and within 20 minutes of me messaging her in a panic, she replied and also had our date available! Going into your wedding day without a trial can be a little scary, but Kira surpassed ALL of my expectations and even more!!! I absolutely LOVED my hair, and received so many compliments!!! It was a low updo, loose texture that stayed in all day/night. She even provided hair pins that were absolutely stunning. I would recommend Parla Hair 100000% (and already have to friends who are getting married!!!!).

Absolutely amazing

Kira and her assistant are absolutely amazing. From the moment I contacted her about booking for my wedding day down to the final details before walking down the aisle, she was absolutely amazing! Quick to respond to emails, honest feedback and truly a fun gal to get ready with! Her time management and creating a schedule template for myself and all wedding party girls to get hair done was so helpful (and she stuck to the allocated time slots!!!). Cannot recommend her enough!!!
