He is passionate about challenging himself with continuing education to keep his skills sharp and current for his clients.

Michael prides himself on truly learning someone’s hair. He loves color, especially balayage with a money piece, or something more “lived in”. He Has a true passion for long hair with layers that create beautiful movement throughout the hair. He also is very talented with the clippers, making him all the more equipped to craft a personalized style for any guest that sits in his chair.

If you have the pleasure of sitting in his chair you will find he loves to chat, especially about coffee, food and animals. Expect him to ask you what you are having for dinner, or lunch that day.
