Owner, Michel FitzGerald
For Michel FitzGerald, lifting up others is at the root of his business. A master of his trade, his goal is the absolute satisfaction and happiness for his current and prospective clients. Michel’s Cut and Color offers a revolutionary new salon experience with soul.
Located in Tulsa at 111th and Memorial, Michel’s is part of a progressive new suite complex in the Salons by JC group. Completely new to Tulsa, this innovative concept provides a more personal and exclusive experience, unlike any other in Oklahoma. In contrast to other salons, the suites at JC house individual rooms for salon services, without the noise of busy, crowded, open booth space. “There are so many advantages to these four walls,” said Michel. “It’s comfortable, quiet and far more accommodating.”
Michel is confident that the space he provides is the best he can offer his clients, and with over 15 years of experience in his field, he is an authority on the subject. He has lived and worked in many other locations around the U.S., including three years in Manhattan, where he gained vast experience as well as training with top experts in the business. He worked for seven years as a color and keratin educator for the Southeast United States, and trained others on color correction, highlights, blending and more. A Tulsa native, Michel is grateful to be home, giving back to his community he holds dear. “There is a spirit in Oklahoma that I’ve never found anywhere else,” he said. “People are friendly and kind here.” In his off time, Michel is a Red Cross Disaster Service volunteer. “I want to give back as much as I can,” Michel said. “That’s something else about Oklahomans that resonates with me. We take care of each other and we never give up. This is why I came home.”
His gratitude extends to those who serve and sacrifice for our community. To show his appreciation, Michel offers free hair cuts to first responders and members of our military on the second Wednesday of each month, with ID. Walk-ins are welcome for these services, or appointments can be made for those who desire a specific time. He has a special gift for teachers and school support staff as well, offering 20% off any salon service, with school ID. These offers cannot be combined with any other specials.
“It’s really all about helping people feel great about themselves, and find their confidence.”
Michel’s suite provides for a personalized experience, but it is his commitment to relationship development with his clients that distinguishes his business core. “It’s really all about helping people feel great about themselves, and find their confidence,” Michel said. “The more I get to know somebody, the better I can make sure they are taken care of and happy with their look.” With such an inviting space, clients are encouraged to come as they are, and embrace a one-stop-shop providing services beyond cut and color, to include keratin treatments, masks, waxing and much more. Michel’s is also a Moroccanoil Loyalty Salon, providing the highest quality hair care products with an amazing scent, high standards in quality control, and safe for all to use.
It all trims down to the best practice possible in salon services. “If you’re not getting an experience, what are you paying for?” asked Michel. “I don’t want to be your last hairdresser; I want to be your final one.”
