As a beauty, hair care and wellness expert Michelle has grown, exploring new and different ways to provide quality service and products.
March 1987 she opened Salon 21, after 23 years of providing a great place for other beauty professionals to work, learn and grow, along with providing quality customer service and products, producing an 8-page newsletter, all you can be campaigns and a healthy lifestyle festival, she sold the business but kept her business name SALON 21.
God has fulfiled another dream, it's better than anything she could have dreamed up herself, she is still doing what she loves, providing quality beauty services and products, she continues to educate, and inspire women to look good and feel better. She teaches the consumers the benefits of going to a professional and using quality take-home hair care products for healthy hair. Plus the benefits of skin care and makeup application for women of all ages.
Michelle is operating her business SALON 21 at O My Hair Studio in Westchester, CA (LAX Area).
