Michelle Hungate - Stylist Level 2
Like most salon professionals, Michelle was educated by some of the brightest minds in the business and passed a rigorous skills exam to become licensed. But unlike many stylists, Michelle brings raw talent cultivated by a passion that began when she was in high school. She earned a bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of Tennessee before following her dream of becoming a salon professional. She was educated at the Paul Mitchell School of Hair Design and was given a position at Salon Biyoshi before she graduated.
Michelle’s skills have grown by leaps and bounds since she began at Salon Biyoshi. A challenge that many salon professionals face is understanding their guest's vision and articulating a realistic timeline and path to achieve it. Michelle understands the science behind hair design and she uses her advanced communication skill set to put guests minds at ease.
