Nadine Michelle

Nadine MichelleI come from a small town in Sussex, UK. From the age of 6 all I wanted to do was become a hair stylist & makeup artist so that I could make people feel great about themselves! The artistry that can be created through hair & makeup has always fascinated me. As a teenager I would linger over the editorial pages of British Vogue studying just how they applied the models eyeshadow, her lip color, her seamless foundation… how the texture of the hair was manipulated to create a striking look… I would meditate on those images as I lay in bed…
I did all I could to blaze the trail I wanted to walk. I enrolled myself in prestigious schools & studied above & beyond what was required because I was so enamored by the fashion & beauty industry. In my early twenties I moved to London & worked in London’s West End. I’m proud to say I’ve worked with some of the best hairdressers inNadine Michelle the world, been privileged enough to work at London Fashion Week & even styled hair for TV & celebrities (ok, it was just the one celebrity… but I still like to brag on it!)
In 2009 I took a much needed vacation & met the love of my life! At the same time as falling in love with him, I also fell in love with the beaches, the sun & relaxed way of life. We got married in a garden setting in Monterey in 2010. Now we have 2 incredible children that make us so happy! You’ll find us walking through Henry Cowell, admiring the giant Redwoods or chilling at our favorite beach enjoying the warm California sun! I have been a cosmetologist since 1998 & have taken education very seriously from the start.
I chose to train with the best academies in London, UK (also the best known in the hairdressing world) The Aveda Institute * The Toni&Guy Academy * The Wella Nadine MichelleAcademy * The L’Oreal Academy & The Goldwell Academy. I completed training & was certified with Glam Lab Makeup Academy in San Francisco in Dec 2014 & continue taking classes to keep up to date with current trends & techniques with QC Makeup Academy as well as workshops with Mac Cosmetics & Kryolan. I’m excited to announce that I have just partnered up with Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics.
The makeup is beautiful! But what I love the most is how clean it is. There are no petroleum ingredients, or other irritants or pollutants. It gives amazing coverage, pigmentation & lasts all day. I am licensed by the State Board of California Barbering and Cosmetology. I work on Wednesdays & Sundays at Purity salon, in Midtown Santa Cruz, cutting, coloring, styling hair & makeup application. I am also available for styling bridal hair & bridal party members on location within Santa Cruz County & locations within San Francisco Bay Area, as well as for editorial, fashion, television & corporatePrint Stop hair & makeup projects.
My guests come to me knowing that I will listen to them & consult with them to create a style or look that will suit their needs. They know that I care deeply about them, that I value the time they have chosen to spend with me & I love to hear about their life! I typically greet with a big warm hug, but if that’s not for you, no problem! A big warm smile will do! It’s people I’m most passionate about, so if you are ready to take the next step & have the best salon experience ever with me then click a link below to book now!
