Michelle has been with Gordon Salon since 2003, and her experience is an invaluable part of our salon culture today. Michelle began her journey as an Aveda Stylist in 1992, and has continued with Aveda ever since. She has been an Aveda Purefessional, training with Aveda’s elite as cutting/styling specialist for over 12 years now. She is currently a Senior Master Stylist at Gordon Salon in Highland Park, as well as the Director of Education for all Gordon Salon locations. In addition to providing services on the salon floor, Michelle ensures that up and coming Emerging Artists at Gordon Salon receive top quality training by putting together multiple advanced education classes per month for our staff. Along with the rest of her education team which includes Renee from Gordon in The Glen, Alexis from Gordon in Wilmette, and Katie from Gordon in Lakeshore East, Michelle provides additional training for beauty school graduates looking to learn advanced techniques. Additionally, Michelle uses her industry experience and connections to recruit some of Aveda’s top stylists from around the nation to provide thorough training for our team. Michelle feels that “the ability to make people feel better about themselves through beauty and teaching allows her to maintain her passion for this industry.” She has a unique ability to connect with her clients and understand what looks good on them, which has made her one of our most highly sought after hair stylists. In addition to men’s haircuts, Michelle specializes in razor cutting and textured, curly hair. She has been an Aveda Purefessional, training with Aveda’s elite as cutting/styling specialist for over 12 years now.
