Creative Mornings: Nikki-Lee Hampton AKA. Kojo&Lee


CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community and 99 Mary St is delighted to have them back for the fourth time.

Nikki-Lee is the visionary creator behind the inspired hair salon Kojo&Lee. An oasis of calm hiding in plain sight in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Devonshire Street. With the January theme of anxiety, Nikki-Lee will be talking us through her journey in creating her own world and space and how as a hair stylist uses this creative outlet to help ease anxiety in others. 

“At the time I didn’t know if anyone was going to want to get their haircut in that room, but they did, and they loved it — and I loved it. I realised it was the way I wanted to work. There was so much more freedom, it was so relaxing, and I thought the one-to-one was special and personal. It seemed like people were so much more comfortable talking about their hair in an inviting environment like this.”

"I realised this is where I’m meant to be,” she says. “To be somewhere and feel a part of it.”
