Michael Helene has been in the hair care industry for two decades. She has worked behind the chair, behind the camera in film and television, and was the regional education director for Toni and Guy Tigi on the East Coast. Her dream of owning her own hair salon came about through her passion for the industry and making people look and feel great. While working in the salon and teaching for 10 years she honed her skill as a top of the line hair and makeup artist doing fashion shows, taking classes, teaching classes and even working on such films as Pirates of the Caribbean and Cold Mountain. She enjoys teaching her clients how to care for their hair themselves and promotes the idea of the importance of personalization to her staff. Michael is a master hair stylist, a precise hair shaper and a visionary long hair dresser, as well as a personal therapist to many of her clients.

“I believe that hair is the ultimate accessory. It’s the one thing you wear every day. It can be the deciding factor between a good day and a bad day in many of our lives. My job is to help you have many more good days.”

Michael Helene Says: Ok I can not write about myself but I felt I needed to have this section for balance purposes, lol!! I love hair though and I want to grow the industry and make everyone feel as beautiful inside as they feel outside…..hopefully after a visit with myself or my artists this is just drop dead gorgeous!! xoxo

Lauren is a Northern Virginia native, wife, and mother of two black rescue kitties. In her spare time she enjoys rock climbing, mud runs, baking, drawing, painting, and long walks on the beach. In college she majored in fine arts before finding cosmetology, the perfect combination of meeting new people and exercising her artistic side. Lauren started her hair career at the Graham Webb academy. Over the past 10 years she has used her skills behind the chair, at photoshoots, fashion shows, community events, and assisting educational classes for other hairdressers. Although she loves doing all textures and types of hair, she is most widely known for her specialization in curly hair. Through her continued education she has acquired many certifications for cutting, styling and coloring. She has attended classes from companies including: Graham Webb, Aveda, Wella, Prive, Aquage, and earned the title of Deva Certified Stylist from the Devachan Salon in New York city.

Michael Helene Says: Lauren is an enigma!! She is the only artist I have hired and kept that came from other training. She is amazing! She is a hard worker, a fantastic artist and a great educator.   Lauren is one of the best haircutters I have ever seen cut hair and she loves it to boot. Such a hard combo to find. You will be so pleased if you have her as your artist as you will come away with an experience like no other!!

Dani received her cosmetology license from the Chantilly Academy. She’s a vivacious, vibrant, and cutting edge individual. She has competed in several esthetics competitions with the ambition of making a courageous difference in the world spectrum and hopefully yours too! She loves doing hair and makeup more than anything in the world. In fact, on her days off she usually watches videos in order to improve her skill set!

Michael Helene Says: Dani was the first artist I ever hired to work for MHSG, what an amazing choice. My little pixie, she is artistic, talented and loves what she does. She wears her creativity on her body, her skin and her hair, she is always glittered up, tutu on and ready to do some rockin hair. She is currently getting a certification in Canada and I could not be prouder of her. She is really coming into her own and I cant wait to see what she does next!
