Michele is the consummate artist! – Some background: I recently moved from Miami Beach. FL to L.A. and, without any point of reference beyond the reviews here on CitySearch, I began to look for a hairstylist.
In reading Michelle's reviews, I got the feeling that her clients respected and demanded talent, but didn't like the pretentiousness or outrageous pricing that unfortunately can come as a "package deal" with some purported high-end salons.
So at the risk of having Michele stolen from us by some famous model or actress, here goes nothin'!!
1. The Salon... Hair in L.A. seems at first glance very unassuming: it's in a strip mall in Tarzana, nothing's made of granite, marble or onyx, no Aeron chairs at the reception but it's impeccably clean, very friendly, comfortable, and here's the low key genius of the place: The wall facing the parking lot is WINDOWS, which means you view your color results in NATURAL LIGHT. Michele gets to see how the light "plays" off of your particular hair which yielded the most beautiful and natural tones and placement for the highlights she added for me.
2. Michele...Do you remember that friend you had when you were in High School? The one who was REALLY REALLY good at doing hair? Now pretend she grew up to be an expert stylist, able to interpret your tastes and choices masterfully, utilizing her talent and her obviously frequently updated skill-set. Michele has an uncanny knack for following the lines of your facial structure, translating your favorite styles to work with your hair type, and adding color to suit your skin/hair tones, AND your personal style. In addition, she's an excellent communicator, making sure you both agree and understand about how much length to cut, what the final product should look like, and how you like to style your hair. Michele makes hairstyling feel like a collaborative, creative effort, and her communications methods make a client feel empowered and confident of a great result!
3. The Experience: If you want to plant yourself in the rarified chair that your fave actress sat in for her last haircut, there are plenty of places you may patronize from Beverly Hills to Santa Monica to Brentwood. If you are a perfectionist who would rather LOOK like a star than share a stylist with one, if you appreciate professionalism, attention to detail. luxurious results and talented, skilled professional at the top of her game, call Michele.
Do it before some celeb gets wise and steals her from us!!
VERY happy with results! – I recently moved to Woodland Hills and was in need of a serious touch up to my hair before my best friends wedding. Of course waiting till the last minute Michele was flexible and really worked with my schedule. Not only did she do that but she did an amazing job on my hair! There is not one thing I would have wanted different. If you are in the Woodland Hills, Tarzana, etc. area you should definitely reach out to her...you won't be disappointed.
Top Notch All The Way – I came to see Michele after a hair cutting place, who's cuts weren't so super, botched a hair coloring job and left me with black hair. Michele fit me in right away and spent hours removing the bad color, re-coloring and cutting my hair. She made my hair into a masterpiece! My friends and family say I look years younger! Michele is professional, friendly, and has very reasonable prices! It is a great feeling knowing I will be in good hands from now on! I highly recommend Hair Designs By Michele!
Finally Found A Three-In-One Hairdresser!! – I'm so Thankful to have found Michele here on Citysearch!! I was looking to find a stylist who was able to perform a multitude of tasks on my hair. I used to have to go to 3 different stylists. One for color, one for extensions, and one for haircut/blowdry. I really needed to find a stylist who could do all 3.... to make my life easier! And I am happy to report that Michele did an A+ job accross the board. She has been doing my hair now for a few months, and in that time my hair is in better condition than ever. She works with high quality products, from the color she uses, to the quality of hair she uses for the extensions. It really makes all the difference! Michele pays attention to detail, and I really appreciate that, not to mention she's a good listener, and really nice too! Thanks michele, and I'll be seeing ya soon!
True Care & Talent: The difference between good & great! – I got highlights and lolights plus a cut from Michele -- the results are fantastic. She's a talented hair artist, and talent does make a difference! She was meticulous about the weave, cut, and everything. Just 100% great, outstanding exceptional results. Plus, she listens and takes time to discuss things and sincerely cares that the look comes out great.
Some stylists want to get customers in and out, their minds are only on money -- sadly the results show it, with either okay or so-so hair, and sometimes disappointing results. I had been to a few of those, who didn't really care, and my hair showed it.
Michele's results are **Beverly Hills/studio quality** and affordable, fair prices. She really knows what's she's doing. If you want your hair to look fabulous, you have found the place and designer.
Thank you for the rich texture and color. It looks like I spent a fortune on my hair but the only fortune here is finding this hair artist. Thanks!
Excellent in every way! – My sister and I went here to get our hair done; she wanted hers done for prom, me- just for kicks. Michele was extremely friendly and made sure that she did her best to get my sister out on time with great hair even though there was a scheduling conflict and a time restraint. My sister had her hair dyed dark with streaks of color to match her dress. It looked tasteful, fun, and beautiful! I had my hair done with red highlights that Michele helped me pick out (since I couldn't really decide). She picked a fantastic color that I'm in love with- and I normally don't like lighter hair. She stayed late to finish my hair to make sure that it looked good and it does! I can honestly say that she knew exactly what I wanted even though I couldn't really express it very well and she gave me pretty much the best haircut/ color that I've ever had.
Believe it...because it's all True! – Came across Michele's reviews while desperately searching for a stylist for my daughter & her multicolored mane. And there it was..in print- everything offered was exactly what I was looking for. And although I had a few other names of stylists from coworkers & friends, my gut kept telling me that Michele was the one to call. And I'm so glad to say that I was right !
Amber is extremely happy with her "purple" bangs. Michele spent an amazing amount of time - not only discussing what she wanted done, but then doing a tremendous job perfecting it . She is an expert in the truest sense of the word....and has made us permanent customers! Thanks Michele. Next time...its my turn, so I'll be calling you again soon!!
Beverly Hills Salon Hair Without The Price – Michele takes time to discuess what you what your hair to look like and does above and beyond your expectations. Her prices are very good and with todays Economy this is so important. I have never been happier with my color and cut. It looks great curly or straight and falls perfect everytime. I highly recommend this professional hair artist 100%. As a bonus they have TVs at everyone's station and it is very clean and oen and the parking is excellent and free chocolate.
Couldn't Ask for More – Not only did Michele do a great job with my hair she was very professional and affordable.
Terrific Hair Extensions!! – Just went to Michele on a reccomendation from a friend of mine who has been going to her for some time now. And I have to say that I was very satisfied with the Hair Extensions she gave me!! Michele did a terrific job, paid allot of attention to detail, which is so important to me, and the results are just beautiful!! The hair she uses is 'top quality', and they just look as natural as can be. I already have received a ton of compliments, and my husband LOVES them!! So, thank you, thank you thank you!!
