Michelle is fabulous! I have had many stylists over the years but after working with her for almost 15 years now, I will never go to another. She is on trend, meticulous and is a great collaborator. When I first went to Michelle, I was a little resistant to change, so she would make suggestions to slowly "bring me along". But it didn't take long for her to earn my complete trust in her skill and expertise. Michelle truly is a rare talent, both in terms of her technical skill and artistry. And she is one of the kindest people you'll ever meet.

Michelle has cut my hair for 10 plus years. I have straight thin hair that just doesn't look good without a great cut. Michelle always gives me a cut that I love. I now also have to color my hair and she has always given me great advice on color and highlights. She is a perfectionist so I always feel great when I walk out of the salon. My daughter now goes to her as well and looks great. I highly recommend Michelle for your next cut.

Michelle is not only talented but is also very sweet and caring and a perfectionist stylist- it is just such a great overall experience getting my hair done with her. I have fine hair and her cuts are so precise and pristine that she always makes me look and feel like a million bucks even with my baby fine locks. Yesterday I just had my partials appointment, getting my blonde fix and some lowlights added for an autumn look, I am extremely pleased every time I have an appointment. She is a true expert and professional, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Michelle!

I just moved to the DC area last month (July 2017) and was looking for a good hair stylist. My neighbor mentioned “Hair By Michelle” in Sterling. The salon is about 45 minutes from my house but since it was highly recommended, I wanted to check it out. I needed a great impression for my first day at work. Michelle was very accommodating and flexible with my unpredictable schedule. I had to juggle several errands on the day of the appointment. Finally, my hair appointment was the last one for the day and Michelle really took her time and explained what would work best for me. I really appreciated her attentiveness and listening to my concerns and desire. She is a true professional and extremely detail oriented which is a great quality in a hair stylist. Her salon is stylish, inviting and relaxing. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being pampered and in the end “looking gorgeous!” She colored, cut and styled my hair and I look 10 years younger. Thank you, Michelle! - Heidi P.

When you're looking for a stylist, you want someone who really knows hair. And Michelle REALLY knows hair. Mine is straight and literal, and I can't tell you how many times it's been cut and it just doesn't fall right. You know what I'm talking about - looks great leaving the salon w all that styling, but what happens when you wash your hair the next day and every time after that! Michelle has cut my hair for probably over a decade - meticulous, detailed, finessed in such a way, that my hair looks effortless, moves, almost like I have waves - when in fact, my hair is straight. I've also cut my hair super short, and talk about being edgy, Michelle does that also. If you want a beautiful cut, no matter what the style, call Michelle. She'll know what will work or not, based on the texture of your hair, the amt of maintenance you want (or don't). Yeah, I think the world of her - how she handles hair is BRILLIANT. - May L.

Michelle has been my stylist for more years than I am willing to admit. She is an amazing colorist. Her recommendations are always spot on. She stays very current and consistantly gives me great hair cuts and styles. I really like the atmosphere in her space at Salon Lofts. It is comfortable and relaxing.

Michelle is a true professional and a delight to have as a hair colorist and stylist. Her work is detail-oriented and careful and she knows style trends. She makes her clients feel comfortable and at ease. I have enjoyed going to Michelle for at least four years and my hair has looked great after each appointment.

Michelle has been my stylist for over 5 years. Her professionalism and friendly manner drew me in right from the start. Michelle's keen attention to detail sets her apart from other stylists I've worked with in the past. I'm confident knowing that with my hair in her hands I'll always come out looking great! She continues to be on trend, and since I've been going to her, I've consistently received compliments on my hair. Michelle's passion for her work shows every cut I've ever received; she's amazing!
