Popi McMichael, salon owner

Popi McMichael

Popi started her training in 1982 and through hard work and dedication she swiftly moved up through the industry.

During her travels across the country with Paul Mitchel and Tony Ina (Ina Perm Rods), she also trained in Toronto and California at Sassoon Academy.

Popi has worked behind the chair for over 35 years, creating new looks for each individual client.

She believes that education is the key to being successful in this industry. Drawing on her many years of experience, she mentors and shares her knowledge and skill with other stylists.

Bella Robinson

Since 2013, Bella’s passion for hair has become a reality. At a young age she was giving helpful beauty advice to friends and family. Her natural talent has evolved into a desire to make each person that sits in her chair look and feel their best. Bella keeps up to date with the latest styles and cuts, and is able to transform the ordinary into a look that expresses your inner beauty. Her skills range from a wide variety of color techniques, fashion-forward styles, and classic cuts, to men’s barbering and grooming.

In addition to co-owning the salon with her mom, she is a traveling on-site bridal hairstylist. To see more of what she does and to inquire about bridal hair styling, please visit her Instagram page @thebellabeautyco.
