michael bio"The greatest reward is when a client looks at you and says, 'This is exactly what I wanted.'"

Michael knew he was meant to become a hair stylist from a very young age while growing up in his mother's salon. After college, he decided to follow his dream and began training at Pivot Point International School of Cosmetology. Four years later, he opened his own salon in Chicago. After thirteen great years of Salon Michael, he decided to close the salon to have more time to pursue other avenues in his career. He proudly joined the team at Fringe and also works in Nashville as a stylist for some of the biggest stars in the country music industry.

Michael realizes your image must work for you every day, every night, and on every occasion. That's why he works with you to customize your hair color, cut and style so you look and feel gorgeous day after day. Michael's mission is for all of his clients to walk out of the salon thinking, “It's exactly what I wanted!” From Chicago to Nashville and beyond, Michael has been hearing client after client utter those exact words for almost two decades.
