Michelle started as a client of Deeda in the spring of 2008 and found herself building relationships with the stylists by doing makeup for events and weddings. A couple of years later, she joined the team and began managing the salon alongside Angelina and Brian. She has done makeup for Shu Uemura and Christian Dior and continues to do wedding and event makeup in the salon. Michelle’s favorite part of working at Deeda is working on the seasonal campaigns and seeing collective creative visions come to life through video and photography. She loves being part of the process in her own way.
Michelle’s style icons are Alexa Chung, Nicole Richie and Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. She is inspired by minimalist fashion as well as mod, urban and bohemian styles. Her favorite hair and makeup looks are subtly beautiful, effortless but thoughtful. Outside of the salon Michelle enjoys travel, cinema and going to her favorite Sacramento haunts.
