About Michael

To me, true beauty is not just a “look”. Rather, it is the achievement of a confidence projected through the unification of Mind, Beauty, and Soul. At Michael’s we believe a healthy spirit and mind are an essential part of true beauty.

The confidence gained by rejuvenating your hair, skin, face, hands, feet and body is an important way of releasing everyday stress. At Michael’s our services, products, and skilled professional staff are constantly striving to help you achieve this perfect balance.

Come and see why Michael’s Hair Design & Day Spa is a place for Uniting Mind, Beauty & Soul.
