What People are Saying

“A Total Pro”

”Michele is a total pro and I always feel great after she gets her hands on me.”


“Hair Whisperer”

“This was my first visit to Michele. If there is such a thing as a “hair whisperer,” Michele personifies the term. By looking, feeling, and talking, she got to know my hair and cut it exactly as it needed to be cut. Also gave me superb pointers for care and feeding. Already booked the next appointment!“
