You could say my interest in hair began as a teenager. I used to give my friends haircuts and, in some cases, color their hair using wild colors. Looking back… what can I say? It was the 80s, and my early influencers were punk bands, which is the music I was into at the time.
I pride myself on creating one-of-a-kind looks. To me, this is achieved when you combine art, design, and being creative, which I believe is everything a good haircut should entail.
Men’s hair is a particular passion of mine. After graduation from cosmetology school, I did an apprenticeship that focused heavily on men’s hair. As a result, this became a leading focus in my career. That being said, if you look at my clientele, you will see a variety of men’s and women’s styles that run the gamut from the classics to current trends.
Hair is not a job to me, it’s my living canvas.
Michael received his formal training at Toni & Guy and went on to receive extensive training with Bumble and Bumble, Wella, and Kevin Murphy. He continues to seek out continued education.
To help you get to know Michael a little better, we asked him to share some information about himself.
Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
Yes, I paint artwork that I hang in my home. One of my favorite paintings, a rooster, was also featured in a coffee table book. They were there to photograph a unique room I had designed that was all done in fur and the rooster painting was on the wall in the room they were photographing.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Ice cream. I love chocolate chip mint.
