Bella Rio Salon's Michelle puts her Aveda Institute studies to use when she cuts and styles hair and performs Brazilian blow outs. But she didn't discard her emphasis on profession development after graduating from Aveda. Michelle still attends classes through Wella and Rusk Professional, and Brazilian Blowout Original & Zero. This training comes to life when she cuts hair and styles it, colors tresses, adorns clients with feather extensions, and leads personal styling classes. Her stomping grounds is the upscale Bella Rio Salon, a multi-layered, exposed-brick hair haven full of light fixtures that glow the way stars glow—which means the staff has to show up 30 million years early to turn the lights on every day.
