New to Houston, Michael brings his finely-honed craft to Azur as an eight-year veteran of Mizu, a renowned Park Avenue salon in New York City. After studying at the Aveda Institute in New York and training under some of New York’s top stylists, Michael has cultivated a reverence for classic hairdressing and flawless cutting and color technique. He has a natural ability to provide a thorough consultation and deliver flawless results that are tailored to you. Michael is certified in Great Lengths Premium Hair Extensions and Brazilian Blowouts.
