Michael Barnes began his hairdressing career in 1972 at the Ricci Burns salon London. Working with Robert Lobetta, Michael flourished and became a member of the Renbow art team guided by Trevor Sorbie, traveling Europe and Japan where Michael's love of all things Oriental was awakened and has remained a huge influence in his life.
He is today one of the most respected hairstylists in British hairdressing, renowned for his international show and seminar work and in particular his avant-garde show finales.
Michael is often described as being one of the most down to Earth personalities in the hairdressing world.
His teaching approach is always straightforward and compelling. Michael encourages delegates to stretch, excel and to develop their hairdressing skills to the limit.
Michael's "outside the box" viewpoint has enabled him to pioneer revolutionary photographic and hairstyling techniques.
His hairdressing philosophy is simple, always putting clients first and firmly in the spotlight. His customization concept ensures that each client is treated as unique and every cut is precisely tailored to meet his or her needs and desires. This has led to a loyal client following for over 25 years and in some instances they travel great distances to receive an individual cutting experience.
