  • Michelle’s done it again – created a funfest for the eyeballs as she designed her functional new work space. Hair artists supreme here, too – I’ve got seven years as a satisfied customer to testify!

  • Hi Michelle, I just wanted congratulate you on your new business venture. I look you up from time to time to see how you are doing and I am amazed at how much you have accomplished since I first met you. At your first salon when you were training your staff in Schwarzkopf color theory. I loved that space, hip, trendy and not pretentious. Now you have totally out done yourself!

  • Michelle, WOW! You and your staff is exactly what Newburgh needed. We have been hairdresser, client partners for over 10 years, and I believe you are a true artist! Your new place looks and feels amazing. Thank you for always taking the time and always making me look and feel and young. Good Luck Always! Erika
