Salon Borealis - hair coloring - Brown with gold highlights.

Michael is the top colorist in the city. He is a genius with color. He should be world-renown or have a TV show, he is that great! I have been going to him for over 10 years, first at Zen Do and now Salon Borealis. He is the best of the best in town and on the entire West coast. I used to live in LA and went to many of the greats there like Jose Eber and Christoph, the salons of the stars, and I can honestly say, Michael is equal to or better than anyone in LA! I love this guy!

My first visit with Michael was exactly what I was hoping for! Very thorough consultation – we understood what I was hoping for and what Michael could create. He didn’t begin the process until we were “on the same page.” This is incredibly important when it comes to hair color. I was completely at ease with his talent and I’m over the moon with the outcome! Hopefully this won’t come across as vain however… I LOVE my hair! Between the outcome of my hair color and cut, along with the terrific conversation, this was an experience I will cherish. Honestly. Oh! And his price range is great! What a gem!

My hair was in dire need of a do. Michael gave me the most flattering haircut and the color was totally gorgeous. I will definitely make this one of my future hair style stops!!

The truth is that I cannot stop saying ‘Wow.’ It’s what I’ve said since I walked out of your salon, Michael. You are an artist, detailed and au courant in every sense, taking the time to explain your procedure so very thoroughly. Your ability to mix warm and cool tones to create an edgy yet natural look has produced nothing short of a gorgeous look that works, both in the office and onstage with the band! The effect has done wonders for my skin tone. You were spot-on, darling. Love the new color line from Italy. Thank you, thank you, for being you. xo!

Salon Borealis - hair coloring - Blond with dark under highlights,

I’ve been going gray since I was 17 and have been all “natural” hair colors under the sun. I came to Michael at Salon Borealis with the challenge of wanting to find a way of being my natural color mostly, but with a bit of pizzazz. Over the last 5 months, I’ve enjoyed beautiful haircuts by his hand, and creative color and highlight work that is quickly bringing about the transformations I seek. Accolades from my family (and a cat call on the walk home from the latest appointment) have me thinking that I’ll be facing my next milestone birthday in style.
