Michael Reeves is a master stylist working in the 3-dimensional art form. He’s fine-tuned his abilities to make every style he executes unique to the individual. Born and raised in New Jersey, not only less than 10 miles from New York City, the energy of that city had a great influence on his artistic approach to hair styling and ultimately transitioned from being a master barber to a hair stylist. That really helped him develop a keen eye for balance and weight. He’s celebrating over 25 years in the hair industry. He’s been trained by some of the top educators in some of the best facilities. Michael is currently the owner and feature at the Michael Patrick hair studio.
