As one of the biggest and most respected hair brands, I have always admired Wella, and I feel privileged our two brands will share a future together.”

Echoing the stylist’s sentiments, Uros’s wife and co-owner of Kinky Curly Straight Mojca Bizjak-Mikic added, “We are thrilled to be joining Wella in this exciting next chapter of our business.

With a renovation of our salon around the corner and celebrating six years of Kinky Curly Straight later this year, the timing to join this amazing brand could not be more perfect.

I have always admired Wella for the incredible business acumen they bring with them, and look forward to joining forces with Wella’s top salons.

Both Uros, myself and the whole Kinky Curly Straight team, are excited to see what the next decade will bring for our two brands, and how we can grow our businesses, influence and give back to the hair industry through collaboration and innovative work.”
