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!

Michael has been cutting my hair for years. He has a talent that is incomparable. I never have to worry when I sit in the chair. I always step out of his shop feeling beautiful. Michael, thank you for making my hair famous!

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!

I LOVE my hair! This is the third time I have visited Salon Borealis and walk away incredibly happy each time. My mom lives in Seattle and now only has her hair done by Michael when she is visiting Portland because he does such an amazing job coloring her difficult hair. While I was in the salon, two women were there who drove all the way from Yamhill just to get their hair done. Highly recommended, fun atmosphere, and fabulous color and cut!

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.

Michael is the very best! A skilled practitioner of color, style and cut, nobody does it better! Nobody! His first words to me 15 years ago when I entered his North Plains salon to set up my first appointment was “Your hair looks like hell, I know just what you need!” I looked at myself in the nearby mirror and realized how right he was! He’s been working his magic on me ever since!
