THE RAIKA STORY
by Kathleen Firth
Raika Studio truly is a family business. With support from my brother and business partner Noel, my dreams of owning my own salon have come true.
Raika Studio is named for the long winding lane that leads to my mother’s childhood home in Ireland. My grandfather cut hair in that home and my mother and father own a successful salon in Woodlawn, New York for 26 years.
Raika represents our family tradition in the beauty business and the long journey we have made to make our dreams a reality.
A special thank you to my brother Noel and my parents, Seera and Noel Sr., for their guidance and encouragement.
Many thanks to Frank Dwyer. A true friend to the Firth family, he built my parent’s salon 26 years ago. His expertise and ingenuity was integral in helping create my vision of Raika Studio.
An additional thanks to all of my family and friends who have supported me along the way.
