Despite being a Junior Artist, Ashley has the talent of a seasoned artist at a young age. As Michael’s apprentice for two years, she learned many techniques, tips, tricks and ideas; and has already taken more advanced classes than most stylists take in 20 years! She loves color and personalizing, much like her mentor. With a warm, casual personality and style, she is easy to chat with. This allows her to form close relationships with all her clients. They love and trust her, just like we do. We are so excited to see her blossom!

Michael Helene Says: Ashley is a one a a kind person, she is sweet and genuine but a diva in disguise (in a good way). She has been with me a long time and I grow to love her more everyday. My fav. thing about Ashley is that she still comes to me after 6 years when she does something she loves and raves about how much she loves doing hair!

Michael Helene Says: What to say about Nino, a character, talented, fun loving! I knew the second I met Nino that he was a great addition to the team. He may not be the neatest person in the world but he is a hell of a hairdresser, always has a smile on his face and keeps me motivated everyday! He loves hair and makeup and does it like he was born to do it!

Michaela is a junior stylist and front desk coordinator. She graduated from Chantilly Academy Cosmetology in 2013 by the same amazing educator many of our staff had, Mr. Wayne White. Michaela worked with us as an assistant from 2012-2013, she then went on to gain experience and more confidence at Hair Cuttery from 2013-2015. Michaela has experienced taking 3 levels of advanced Hairshaping courses at the prestigious Graham Webb Academy, Celebrity Artist Candy Shaws’ Balayage class, and an updo class with three time Emmy award winning makeup artist Susan Patterson. She loves to learn new techniques and to do everything she can for her clients. She recently joined our front desk coordination team as well, due to a medical restraint limiting her hours behind the chair. Michaela is enjoying the new opportunity to see hair from both the business and creative sides. She looks forward to getting to know all of MHSG guests and growing her business management skills.

Michael Helene Says: Michaela was a find from the same school I went to, she is kind hearted and sweet. Michaela wants to do well at everything and never wants to disappoint. She always steps up for new projects and is always willing to learn new things. She is now helping at the front desk and planning events for MHSG due to an injury…but she is still killin her cuts and colours!
