What does it mean to be an education driven salon? At Michael Angelo Salon & Blow Dry Bar we pride ourselves on dedication to higher education. We NEVER stop learning. Through our educational program our stylists master the fundamentals of product knowledge, advanced color techniques, and the latest inspirational cuts and styles.

We align ourselves with L’Oreal Professionnel Soho Academy in New York and travel annually to European shows…


Michael Angelo Salon in Wellington is a proud member of the Intercoiffure International organization. To gain membership a salon owner must meet certain criteria’s regarding education, salon values and commitment to setting hair trends. Only 1% of all salons are a part of Intercoiffure. This allows us to attend two symposiums and one European show per year, where we meet and brainstorm with the crème de la crème of our industry.

Level System

At Michael Angelo’s our service providers operate on a level system. This simply means that our senior stylists have higher pricing due to the fact that there is a higher demand of their time. A lower level stylist is not necessarily new to the industry, but new to our salon and therefore have more availability. All Michael Angelo team members undergo our two year apprenticeship program after cosmetology license, before they can begin at level 1 of our system.
