About Michelle


  • Michelle is a Licensed Cosmetologist in Hawaii (BEO - 17450) and Texas (1014308).  She is currently working as an Independent Contractor inside of On Stage Salon doing business as Absolute Salon.   She completed her original cosmetology training at Aladdin Beauty College in 1991 and worked in Texas until moving to Hawaii in 2007.  From April 2011 thru July 31, 2019, she owned her own salon, Absolute Salon; however, due to rising costs for the salon lease she decided to close the salon and move to being an Independent Contractor inside of On Stage Salon.  By doing so, she is able to maintain her current price structure for her clients.  She values her clients and realizes that sometimes change can be difficult but she truly feels that this would be the best option not only her but for her clients as well.  On Stage Salon is located in the same shopping center that Absolute Salon was originally located.  So, if you have been a past client and know where the salon was originally located, you can still find her just upstairs from where Absolute Salon was located previously.  There are both stairs and an elevator available in the shopping center to get to her new location.  She is looking forward to seeing you!
  • Michelle regularly attends continuing education classes in order to stay up to date on current trends and styles and to perfect her techniques.  One exceptional training took her to Sydney, Australia where she trained with Sharon Blain in a Masterclass.
