Michelle is amazing! She did my color and extensions before my wedding and they turned out better than I could have hoped for! She is also super sweet and easy to talk to. I would 100% recommended her and will definitely be going back in the future!

Michelle is not only a hair color goddess, she is also so wonderful to chat with. never a dull or awkward moment. Whenever I send her a picture of what I am thinking, she goes above and beyond! I'm extra appreciative of her since my regular hair stylist moved away, and I was in desperate need of a new one! Blonde hair is very delicate and tough to execute perfectly (it's also very, very hard for me to gain the trust of someone coloring my hair!!) and Michelle has done an awesome job of keeping the trust and then some.

My professional image is very important as a Realtor. I can always count on Michelle to make sure my hair style is up to date and looks great. I always look to Michelle for advice on what style works best on me and how to keep it fresh. I especially love the service I receive and how relaxed I am while Michelle is working on my hair. I would highly recommend Michelle for her professionalism, knowledge of hair and amazing techniques.

Michelle by far is the best stylist I have ever had! As anyone with very curly hair can appreciate, it is very hard to find someone who can cut/style your hair. Michelle has been my exclusive stylist for 11 years now and I am constantly getting compliments! She started cutting my hair in Geneva and when she relocated to Columbus I make trips to have her do my hair. I will not trust anyone else!! She is simply amazing!

Michelle is not just a wonderful hairstylist, she is a wonderful person. Amiable, sociable, attentive, and committed, these are just some of the amazing qualities that make her such a wonderful stylist. She listens to your wants, and makes them happen. I had extensions for over a year that Michelle put in, and took out multiple times. With proper TLC (tender, love, and care) my extensions lasted a very long time. She is great at color and will get you to that level that you desire! I went from a soft, golden blonde to platinum, and I love it! Thank you Michelle for not only being a wonderful stylist, but also a great friend indeed! Go see Michelle Kissel and she will take care of you and make you feel fabulous! -Breanna Z.

The only downside to my last haircut from Michelle was that her amazing personality distracted me from to ridiculously amazing haircut I was getting. Usually I need to fix a few things on my own after I get my haircut by anyone else. Not this time I'll never get my hair done by anyone else

Michelle is phenomenal at doing hair! I am biracial and my hair is very frizzy and curly and she has been able to help me tame and maintain a great sleek look. I have been going to her for 10 years now and even make the drive to Columbus from Cleveland just to get my hair done by her. She is also hilarious and fun making the whole experience a 10/10.

I have been going to Michelle for years and she is the only hairstylist that i've ever gone to who has yet to disappoint. Every time I come to her with a vision on the way I want my hair, she does exactly that, but even better! I absolutely love going to her because I know when she is done I will be more than satisfied.

Michelle is simply the best! She's been doing my hair well over 13 years! I can't tell you how many compliments I get on my cut/ color:) She is by far the most talented cosmetologist I know!

I'm 58 years old, so I've had my share of stylists, Michelle for the last 7 years. I know when I tell Michelle go ahead and do what she thinks will look good, that it will. Its a 2.5 hour drive to get to her, but well worth it. Thanks Michelle you are the best!!!

Michelle is an amazing stylist. She gave me the best hair cut I've ever had. Her work is truly amazing. She has so much passion and drive in what she does it shows in every piece of work she has done. Nicole w

Michelle has been doing my hair for the past 12 years, and she is the only person that I trust will always do my hair perfectly! She cuts and styles my hair exactly the way I want it, without me even having to even explain what it is I want. I recently referred her to do my best friend's bridal party and she couldn't have done a more amazing job. I am a very picky person when it comes to my hair, and I really can't imagine trusting anyone else to do it. I would probably travel across the state if I had to!
Nicole C.
There is no stylist like Michelle! She has done my hair for 6 years and I have never looked back. It is hard to come by a stylist who can do EXACTLY what you want every single time. I am soooo relieved and thrilled Michelle is back in Columbus! Thanks for years of great hair! :)
Amy H.
Michelle is such a great hair stylist!! So great, that I travel almost 3 hours for her to do my hair! I get so many compliments on my color! Most recently I decided to go for a change & she pulled it off exactly like I was hoping!

Michelle is truly amazing! In the past, I have had terrible luck with stylists and updos for events. I was so fortunate to have had a friend put me in touch with Michelle. She did my hair for my wedding as well as all of my bridesmaids. She was extremely accommodating and professional. After doing a practice updo prior to the wedding, on the big day, Michelle came to our hotel and beautifully replicated my practice updo as well as styling the hair of all five bridesmaids. Everyone looked gorgeous!! She extremely talented and I will never use anyone else! Alicia.W.

Michelle has been doing my hair for 7 years now and there is no other person I would trust with my hair. I always tell her to do whatever she feels will look best and it ALWAYS, ALWAYS turns out beautiful. The cut and color are always exactly what I'm looking for and she is so much fun to be with. Truly a great experience every time :)

I am super picky with who cuts my hair, but Michelle is my girl! Not only is her styling abilities magnificant and creative, but the time spent in her chair is always so fun. She does such an amazing job working with my natural waves, I get an unbelievable amount of compliments on my hair after having Michelle cut and style it. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone, she is truly the best!!

Michelle is an amazing stylist! She has tremendous talent!!! For my 24th birthday I wanted fusion extensions. I was so worried, but Michelle quickly put me at ease. I loved my hair!! I felt so gorgeous after she was done with my hair. My hair looked so natural you couldn't tell that I have extensions in. Michelle really knows how to make a woman feel like a million bucks!! I highly recommend her: Betty T.

Michelle always does a great job with my hair. I went from dark brunette to blonde and everyone keeps telling me that the blonde looks like my natural hair color. I've been getting my hair done by Michelle for about 7 years and I wouldn't go to anyone else. Cuts, colors, highlights, and wedding updo's, she's done it all for me.
