Michael Levine is one of Canada's most sought after and in-demand stylists, and is one of North America's most followed speakers on success in the hairdressing industry. Michael creates a very popular video blog for American Salon Magazine and does seminars all over the United States and Canada to standing-room-only audiences.
Michael was approached by Aveda in 1996 to lead their cutting and colouring education in western Canada, where he helped develop many of today's most widely used highlighting and cutting techniques.
Michael Levine was lucky enough to have been trained by, worked with and directly influenced by many incredible hairstylists, including Foster Eastman, David Adams, John Moroney, Antoinette Beenders, Nick Arrojo, Ted Gibson, Tim Hartley, Harry Josh, Robert Cromeans, Oscar Bond, DJ Muldoon, Takashi Kitimura, Edwin Johnston and many, many others.
But most importantly, Michael was influenced by his wife, business partner and master hairstylist Liz Abreu. Liz taught Michael the most important aspects of hairdressing and salon ownership: honouring the choice our clients make when they spend their time in our salons.
Opening Statik in 1998, Caramel in 2003, Tao in 2007 and Space in 2011 with his wife and celebrated hairdresser Liz Abreu, Michael has been behind the chair making Vancouver women's hair more beautiful since 1994, as well as developing young talent through apprenticeships and now at Vancouver's premier hairdressing school the Vancouver Hairdressing Academy.
In developing his philosophy on hair, Michael has alway tried to find the most direct way to the look he is after, often starting at the focal point and then working the rest of the hair around that key area.
With a strong vision for pretty hair, even when doing edgier looks or editorial projects, Michael has worked on many of Canada's most recognizable faces, as well as having been featured on countless Global News broadcasts and appearances on “Crash Test Mommy” and “Anna and Kristina’s Beauty Call.”
Michael works strictly by request and charges a minimum of $250 for a haircut. Please email him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for your appointment.
