Niko, a hair stylist since 2005, moved to Portland in 2008. He draws heavy influence from Vidal Sassoon, has studied at the Sassoon Academy in L.A, and admires aesthetics, architecture, art, mathematics, and design. By working with your natural texture, growth patterns and face shape, he can bring your best assets forward. Whether it’s reviving classic men’s cuts or choosing the right approach to women’s hair — structured and graphic, soft and elegant, or somewhere in between — Niko enjoys taking the time to perfect your look with consistency and precision.

He has been in the PNW for about a third of his life and is an avid cyclist, touring whenever possible. Niko loves working with his hands and always has a project in the works. He enjoys music (playing and listening), comedy, board games, math, science, and reading (mostly nonfiction).

Testimonials

In Portland, a friend referred me to his hairstylist at Propoganda salon, Niko. Based on price, I expected the same results as I had gotten for the past 10 years.

But I can say, without a doubt, that first haircut was levels above what anyone has ever been able to do with my hair — even though Niko was very clear that it takes 2-3 haircuts to really learn my unique hair and head.

I’ve been back for every haircut since that first one. And with every cut, Niko’s been able to refine and perfect my style.

Niko Ray has been cutting my hair since I moved to Portland five years ago. I initially found him at a different salon, and I’ve followed him across town because he does an amazing job. His craftsmanship and attention to detail are exactly what I want in a haircut. I know he takes pride in providing a quality service. I am constantly complimented on my hair after a fresh cut from Niko. I recommend Niko to all my friends, male and female, all of whom look amazing afterword. He is super friendly and very professional.
— David Paulin
Niko is, hands down, the best stylist I’ve ever had.

I followed him here from another salon in Portland and I swear I’d drive a few hundred miles to have him cut my hair. Wait, I do that sometimes!

I’m a stylist/barber myself and I’m very picky. Obsessively picky. Niko rocks it every time. He’s been cutting my hair for a few years now and each time has been wonderful.

Niko makes my hair look so damn hip... For years I wandered aimlessly, getting my short hair cut every five weeks but never finding someone worth being loyal to. Niko is so easy to get along with, confident and professional in his work, present and concerned with getting me the haircut I want instead of just mindlessly cutting hair, and has never made me feel frumpy or judged. And my favorite part of the whole thing is, his rates are so reasonable that I can afford to get my hair cut at a “real” salon every time now instead of just on special occasions! Yay Niko Ray!
