Since then, her work has taken to the far reaches of the globe, styling for some of the biggest TV shows in the world, and for various beauty and advertising campaigns. Her work can be seen on such notable celebrities as Vick Hope, Jennifer Hudson, Jordyn Woods, and Alesha Dixon. Michelle takes pride in her craft and in the art of working with all types of hair and textures, but what sets her apart is her nature and personality.
