Why Choose A. Michelle 

  1. You Will Speak To A Live Person- You will speak to a knowledgeable hair specialist when you call to ask questions or book an appointment. The only time you will get a machine is when I am privately servicing another client, or the salon is closed.

  2. Honest Pricing- No sales gimmicks, no hidden costs. My prices are based on the quality level of all of my work.

  3. Communication- You will be very happy to know that I am very big on communication. You will have a chance to discuss what you want prior to any service. I am also very honest, and I will inform you if a style is not right for you and why.
