A cosmetologist since 2004, Mia Do will be joining KUPA Inc. to share her passion for the beauty industry as an educator and ambassador.  Founded by  Robert Upshaw and  Kito Ochi in 1984 to meet the needs of the young and growing nail salon industry, KUPA continues to keep the nail technician at the forefront of everything they do. 

Now a cosmetology instructor, Do says that the industry chose her as much as she chose it and that growing up with educators in her family instilled her with the desire to teach.

In addition to being a cosmetology instructor she also does private trainings and works with KUPA Inc. as a Master Educator/Corporate Liaison. She says her love for nail art is renewed each time she picks up a brush.

As a salon owner, Do is able to combine her love for creativity and communication. A true believer in the saying “Do what you love and love what you do,” Do cherishes learning as much as teaching.
