About

At a very young age I found my talent and fell in love with making people look & feel beautiful.

 

Following my passion for the beauty industry, I obtained an Advanced Cosmetology License, before graduating High School in 2011. Shortly after, I moved to New York, receiving advanced Hair Color, Cut and Style training at Bumble and Bumble University and then continued on in the Makeup Artistry field as an Educator for Sephora in Manhattan.

 

I quickly became an expert in the art of makeup and body-painting, my work has been featured on NBC & ABC.  I also teach Special Effects & Theatrical Makeup Classes in schools across Ohio. This has opened many new doors to my career. I am also talented at special occasion Makeup and love to apply for Weddings, Proms, Homecomings, important pictures or just a special evening out. And if your interested, I am more than happy to give makeup lessons, empowering you to look your best for everyday looks.

 

As a Hair Stylist, I have an affinity for hair color and sun-kissed hand painting, I pride myself as an expert in vibrate fashion colors, Balayage, Ombre, Color Melting and Color Correction. I am also a master in creating the unique, perfect blonde for each guest capturing the image they want to present.

 

The Industry continues to inspire me as an Artist, Performer, & Professional.

Michael was exactly what I needed! My hair hadn't been professionally cut in a year and really needed some TLC. From the moment I walked in, my hair and I were taken care of. I left the salon feeling beautiful and sassy with my new style! Additionally, he took the time to explain everything he was doing to my hair in a way that I could replicate it at home. You can tell that he really cares about his clients. I will definitely be going back to see him.

Michael gave me the exact cut I was looking for! I had described it to various other stylists in the Columbus area and Michael was the first to really listen and make it happen. His passion for the industry and his clients really shows. I’ll be headed back soon for color. Thank you Michael!!

After relocating from LA and San Diego, where I loyally followed my stylist for over 10 years, I truly never thought I would be able to find someone in Columbus that shared my passion and appreciation for being a blonde! When I met Michael I immediately knew that I had found a GEM!! Having come from the West coast I recognized his genuine talent and knowledge for hair that he brought with him from his experiences in NYC salons. In the year that I have known Michael, I have followed him from his first and second salon locations to his very own Salon Loft!! I have also referred my Mom and sister who are now regulars too. Michael has that special touch that every woman wants from their salon experience and he makes me feel more at home in a new city both inside and out!!!

Michael is amazing! He completely transformed my hair from a very blotchy bleach-job with a distinct line to a beautiful color blend with new blonde pieces. Every time I go to him my hair looks more and more fabulous! His personality and overall vibe makes the entire appointment that much better. I am so happy to have finally crossed paths with a talented stylist who knows exactly what I want without even having to discuss it in depth. His perfectionist technique will have you leaving his loft feeling like a new person! Love him!

I cannot wait to go back! Michael did such a terrific job on my long hair with both the color and a cut. I got so many compliments! Not to mention I was in awe of his knowledge about hair color. Michael not only explained each step in the coloring process, but he also ensured I was happy with what he was doing. I also enjoyed visiting with Michael and learning about how he became a stylist. His shampoo massage is fantastic too!
