Salon Lofts - City Way

Loft 4


When I was in 6th grade, I visited a salon for the first time. I got a spiked hair cut that was lacquered with Paul Mitchell Freeze & Shine. (It was 1985, so this was really quite tremendous.) Having ditched my bowl haircut from the barber, I loved everything about the salon atmosphere. The smell of hair color and perms, people laughing and gossping... stylists dressed in punk rock gear with giant Duran Duran hair... it was intoxicating to 11 year old me.


Unfortunately, my parents didn’t share my enthusiasm for my prospective career and it wasn’t until I was 30 that I became a hairdresser with Aveda. I took every class I could get my hands on and excelled in corrective color, blonding and precision cutting. I opened my own salon in 2011 and three years later I expanded to an historic building in Southport, tripling our square footage and adding a spa. Our son was born about a month after our move and it was pretty common to see me doing haircuts with him strapped to me! Our family is growing again and I recently downsized to a more private studio downtown at CityWay Salon Lofts. My favorite thing about being a hairdresser is that it truly is an art... I feel so priviledged to create and enhance beauty for the best people in Indianapolis. Their lives and experiences have truly enriched my own.

Amazing experience! I've been coloring my hair for over 27 years and came to Michael to go gray. I had been using box color that was quite dark. Michael quoted me a time and price and came in under on both! I love my new gray and was so relieved to be in the hands of a true professional who takes his work seriously. Although he has a ton of knowledge, he is a joy to be around! His space is comfortable and I felt so welcomed. Thanks, Michael!
