Hair Stylist & Color Specialist
In the industry since 2010, Michael has had the opportunity to work alongside several industry giants to gain experience and knowledge. He attended the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, worked for Aveda Corporate, had advanced education at Sassoon Academy London, and most recently worked as a color specialist at the Aveda nationally award winning Ruiz Salon in Austin, Texas. He has spent several years studying both curly and fine hair textured hair types, with an emphasis in education on the science of hair.
A Professional Beauty Association 2013 Beacon Award Winner, Michael has had the privilege to work on several North American Hairstyling Awards nominated teams, fashion shows, and fashion magazine editorial photo shoots. “I really enjoy helping clients understand more about their hair, making it easier to carry beautiful hair from the salon back into their home and daily life. Sometimes a small enhancement in color, providing new knowledge on product, or just a great blowout can change someone’s whole perspective. It makes my day when I notice the internal lightbulb go on and an excited smile appears on the clients face after sitting in my chair.”.
