Claire Michalak

Claire grew up in Chicago always knowing she wanted to be a hairstylist. She received her first mannequin head for Christmas when she was seven years old. Claire always loved styling her friends’ hair when she was a little girl. Since then, she has pursued her passion for hair and makeup in Denver, Colorado and has been in the salon industry for the past 3 years. As soon as she graduated high school, she eagerly attended the Aveda Institute Denver in downtown Denver. With hard work and love for the industry, she graduated from Aveda Institute Denver at the top of her class and received high honors.

Claire’s specialties include balayage, color melting, working with curly and textured hair, extensions, and keratin smoothing treatments. Her favorite part about being a hair stylist is the ability to completely transform a person’s image in just a few hours, and help them feel just as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. Claire is inspired by the confidence she sees in people when they look at their reflection in the mirror. The cosmetology industry is fast paced and always changing, which excites her because she is constantly learning something new. She loves continuing her education by attending hair and makeup shows around the world. She recently assisted Ergün in teaching at the National Hair and Beauty congress in Dusseldorf, Germany. Claire is able to set herself apart from other stylist because she also has a strong passion for makeup and the ability that it gives her to use her creativity. She has attended the International Makeup Artist Trade Show in Los Angeles and is looking forward to attending more classes.

Claire is very sociable and outgoing. She loves being able to create lasting connections with her clients. In her free time she enjoys to travel, spend time with friends, go sky diving and trying new things.
