Pierre Michel Salon, New York City: Three-year intensive apprenticeship under Pierre Michel Style Director and celebrity stylist Jerome Lordet. At Pierre Michel, Kaela learned from the most sought after stylists in NYC, working hands-on to assist Jerome on numerous notable celebrities/actors/athletes, red carpet events, weddings, and photo shoots (Harper’s Bazaar, WW magazine, Miss USA, Met Gala etc.) as well as day to day clients in the salon.
French Haircut: The French Haircutting technique that Kaela specializes in is designed to create wash & wear styles which work with the hair’s natural texture to create a shape that falls effortlessly into place. This fast and precise technique creates soft, feminine styles that look gorgeous styled curly, straight, or worn natural.
Curly Cut: As a curly girl herself, Kaela is excited to offer “Curly Cuts” where she uses a fusion of the French technique and the Deva Curl technique to cut and refine curly hair. Curly Cut includes: curl evaluation, shampoo, haircut, diffused styling and product/styling instruction.
Milbon Treatments: Kaela introduced the Japanese Milbon deep conditioning treatments to our salon! Trained by Milbon in NYC. These restorative treatments transform the hair from the inside out with lasting results.
French Balayage: Balayage is a French word meaning “sweeping”. Using this artistic technique of highlighting, Kaela hand paints each highlight piece by piece. Lightener is applied in a sweeping motion on top of the hair and open air processed using only cotton and plastic wrap. This gentle approach results in the most natural looking, sun kissed highlights that grow out without any harsh lines of demarcation. Ideal for any hair color (Blonde, brunette, red, or grey blending)
