Michael Avery


Michael Avery
with Avery Goat
at Farm Sanctuary

Michael is a talented artist with 20 years experience. Working most of his career in small, neighborhood salons in Rochester's Southwedge, Michael prefers an intimate atmosphere with a focus on individual attention.

Michael has worked as an educator and platform artist with the design team for the former Professional Nexxus Salon Products, honing his skills working with some of the top national design artists.

Michael prides himself in creating "wearable hair." That is, styles that his clients themselves are able to make look fantastic beyond their salon visit. He enjoys teaching, giving his clients the tips, tricks and tools that will make them look their very best!

Michael prefers Rochester city living for the many parks, trails, ever-expanding vegan eats and cultural opportunities all within walking distance. He loves walking his dogs along the river, gardening, and spending quiet moments taking in the beauty of Highland Park.

Michael loves adventure travel and is passionate about animal advocacy. He loves smokey jazz, blues, folk and country music. He prefers dark chocolate, an extra dirty martini, and a "multi-faceted" Cabernet.

Michael lives with his crazy dogs, Fenster and Pete in the Southwedge neighborhood.


Michael is accepting new clients on a limited basis by referral only.
