Born and raised in Los Angeles, Michelle graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz with a double bachelors in Fine Arts and Psychology, before attending The Sassoon Academy to pursue her dream in hair. Her upbringing in the art world cultivated her creative flavor “I like to follow the hairs natural growth pattern to create one-of-a-kind looks for each client. When I have a client who is excited for the creative process and the continuing evolution of their look, it really inspires me.” When she’s not in the salon, Michelle likes getting her hands dirty with DIY projects and being outdoors gardening or hiking. She is also an avid volunteer in multiple humanitarian efforts.
