Greg has been a hairdresser for nearly 30 years, and has the client roster to prove it. Cursed with the perfectionist trait of Virgo, he constantly challenges himself, traveling yearly to conferences around the country to keep up with fashion and hair trends. He has an intuitive strength in soft, natural hair colors and strong shapes, and specializes in corrective color and treatments for damaged hair to make it shiny, youthful, and beautiful.
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.
