Michelle took my hot mess semi-curly hair and transformed me from looking like an unkempt 12 year old to looking super cute, with styling tips, product recommendations, and hairstyle ideas that look gorgeous and work with my straightish-in-the-back, super curly in the front, hair. The twist-up pincurls worked!! I feel gorgeous for the first time since I stopped flat-ironing. She knows how to deal with difficult fine hair, and recommends products that keep it from being crazy without weighing it down. She even tested some products on my ends that were going to be cut off to see how it responded and absorbed. She doesn't have a one-size-fits-all solution like some curly hair specialists- DevaCurl doesn't work for my hair, and she's familiar with lots of alternatives. I love the privacy of her salon- you are literally the only client in the room, she spent plenty of time with me, and my hair looks awesome. So happy to finally have found someone to cut my hair in the future!

She's amazing! Listens perfectly, super sweet and knows curly hair like the back of her hand! I have never had this smooth of a cut with this fabulous of a result. Her prices are awesome too, especially for how happy I was! I was practically throwing my money at her while in a state of sheer bliss, fluffing my awesome cut. NO DOUBT that she will be the only one to touch my hair from here on out :D

Michelle is the best hair stylist I've ever been to, hands down. She does a fantastic job cutting my naturally curly hair and really listens to what I ask. She is a master with color and has always come through with great results. She is also one of the kindest, most down-to-earth people you could meet. She takes GREAT care of her clients and goes out of her way to make the experience special. If you haven't already, RUN don't walk to Michelle, and you'll be so glad you did! :)

I am now enjoying one of the best haircuts I have had in a long time. Michelle knows her stuff and my hair looks amazing. I had my cut on Saturday and I waited to review her until after I came to work, thats where tough love lives, rave reviews!! The curly's that I work with are going to call her. I don't understand the one review of Michelle not seeking information about what the client wanted, all through my haircut she followed up with me on what I wanted, and what she was doing, I am very pleased and relieved to finally have a great cut!!

I went to Michelle Sullivan at M Salon. I have to say I am very disappointed in the cut I received. Did you ever go to a salon and get a lot more cut off than you requested? That is what happened to me. The cut doesn’t really flatter my hair and I only wanted a small amount cut but ended up with 2-1/2+ inches cut – maybe more from the back. Michelle did not talk and tell me what she was doing or why she would think cutting more would be beneficial. I could not really see what was happening until it was too late. It will take months to grow my hair back to where I want – very disappointed.

Wow, Wow, Wow! I've read a lot about how getting a dry cut is ideal for we curly girls but haven't been able to find anyone who does that until Michelle. She is amazing, my hair has never looked better and I get compliments all the time. Michelle really listens to you and gives you the best haircut for you. She just did my daughter's hair yesterday and the confidence and beauty she inspired in a twelve year old girl is a beautiful thing to behold. I would highly recommend Michelle no matter what your hairtype! She rocks!!!

After many hits and misses with various salons (fantastic sams, IKON, and home dye jobs) I was very excited to finally find a hairstylist in my area who knew how to work with my curly 3C hair. Michelle takes time to actually listen to what you want, and she works wonders with color .(toning down my brassy orange dye job to a nice ash blonde with highlights!) and only trimmed off exactly what I needed...I especially loved the cozy feel to her at-home salon, I can definitly say this is one salon I will be visiting again! So if your in the San Diego area, check her out!

My 5 year old daughter and I (both curly heads) had our hair cut by Michelle a few weeks ago and I love it. We drove out 145 miles- one way and didn't mind at all. The salon itself is very nice and private. Michelle is very friendly and listens to what you want. My curls were flat before. Now they have bounce and I am very satisfied!

Michelle was my first curly cut, and oh what a difference. I went to her when she was at mermaids (I left a review) and she gave me the most manageable, and better curl pattern, for my babyfine 2a-3a hair. She turned it into 3a,with ringlets, spirals, and it lasted a year, which my colorist trimmed traditional style, left my curls, wavy, and shaggy looking,went to another curly expert, here in SD(Beverly) asked for shape, and ended up with clavicle length hair,(started with BSL),and wanted to keep length. I will be back to Michelle. I've sent others to her new location, and they are now regulars,also. She's a keeper(if you want to keep your hair,ha ha!)!

My wife and I have been going to Michelle for 8 years now (my wife has actually been with her longer - 10 years). Michelle was first with Elias, then moved to the Mermaid. Now she has opened her own little salon (Hair by Michelle) in Rancho Penasquitos (Carmel Mountain Rd. off of the 15 freeway). Her new salon is private, cute and comfortable. As you can tell we have been getting our hair cut with Michelle for quite some time now. This truly attests to how great Michelle is. She is professional, but also fun and easy going. We have a blast every time we see her, but importantly we also get great hair cuts/treatments. More about the hair: My hair is fairly straight and short, while my wife's hair is long and extremely curly. Michelle gives me a "hip" haircut with a bit of texture. People often confuse me with Brad Pitt after I get my haircut. My wife gets a bit more done with her hair. She used to get really cute highlights that were the perfect balance of color (not too overwhelming like you see with some girls). From what I hear Michelle is an expert with coloring (and with extensions too). My wife doesn't get highlights anymore, but she now gets her hair chemically straightened. She absolutely loves this treatment. She goes once every few months, and her hair looks amazing. It looks natural and healthy - and extremely straight. Michelle also did her hair for our wedding, and it looked absolutely beautiful. When it comes down to it you couldn't ask for anything better. She has a cute little salon, she is a fantastic hair stylist, and she is a great person. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Michelle Sullivan, formerly of the Mermaid Salon, has swum out on her own. Michelle is a curly girl herself, who knows how to bring out the best in your curls. She did a great job there, but her new location in the Rancho Peñasquitos community of San Diego is even better. She will also travel to you. Your hair gets pampered, and there’s no sensory overload from competing dyes, bleaches, or shampoos from lots of clients in one big room. Michelle has been cutting my hair for more than three years. It was always a mousy brown which needed some highlights and a richer background. Now it’s got more gray, and she does a great job of covering that too! She cuts my hair dry, which is recommended by the top curl stylists, but hard to find. She has training from DevaCurl, and others-- Toni & Guy (TiGi), Aveda, and Vidal Sassoon. She is well-trained in products too, and has taught me what works with my fine hair, which can get weighted down with the wrong stuff. Call for an appointment at 619-726-2463 or get more info at hairbymichelle.com. She does special events, and doesn’t limit her practice to curls. Straight hair, extensions, theatrical, or special events like weddings—Michelle listens and gets it right.
