Michael opened his salon in November of 2006. This new venture is a vision of his since 1997. The concept of, “Where Art Meets Hair” is an idea based on his travels to Europe. Michael recognizes the trends of smaller and personal experiences of art, mixed in with the creative energy of haircutting and color. The studio is an invitation to observe the art work, while the artist/stylists are creating a design tailored to you. Michael moved his salon in 2011 to the center of Locust Valley and is doing quite well with new digs
