About a decade ago Michelle Pugh launched her career as a colorist with one of the industry’s best: Meche’s own Tracey Cunningham. Since then, Michelle has become one of the brightest talents in Los Angeles, having been named an elite Redken Artist who travels nationally to educate hairdressers on color technique in addition to creating new looks at hair shows. Inspired by rock and roll as much as she is by nature, Michelle employs a “haute couture” philosophy in every look she creates, customizing her work to suit each client’s unique style and flair. Given Michelle’s insightful, detail-oriented work, it’s no wonder she’s regularly booked for high-profile assignments, such as GUCCI’s 2011 campaign, in which she colored Jennifer Lopez’s hair. Her work has also been featured on HBO’s Girls, USA Network’s White Collar, ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, the CW’s Melrose Place and 2011 & 2012 Oscar Red Carpet
