Meet The Hair Goddess

hair goddess michelle

Michelle Clifton began her career in hair on the East Coast, where she grew up; however the winds of change soon blew her to the West Coast to experience exciting and new designing opportunities.

During her eight years Juan Juan Salon in Beverly Hills, she added to her repertoire with freelancing, print work, and photo shoots with some amazing LA talent. While this satisfied her desire for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, she fell in love and relocated to the Pacific Northwest. After working in some of the best salons in Seattle, Michelle joined the team at Eleveight Salon. 

To keep her work up-to-date with the latest style trends and state-of-the-art techniques, Michelle regularly attends hair shows and takes advanced training courses to keep on top of the ever-changing beauty and hair industry.

Her love for the art of creating with hair led to Michelle's certification with Hairdreams, one of the leading hair extensions companies in the world, which also gives her the opportunity to offer integrative volumizing systems to help each client achieve the beautiful hair they desire.

With Michelle’s natural artistic talent, great attention to detail, and her ability to customize for each client with innovative and new ideas is what makes her a true hair artist. She is always striving for the perfect match for your personality and comfort level.

I am inspired by all the creative people I’ve been blessed with in my life, and each person that sits in my chair affords me the opportunity to create something beautiful with details and integrity.

Hair Lengthening

Long hair has been considered the epitome of feminine beauty.  The dream of long hair perfection is, often  met with great difficulties.

Environmental factors, stress, chemical treatments all a burden on the hair that tend to worsen its condition. Hair should always be trimmed, therefore, only with great care and patience, (hair grows approximately one centimeter per month/ 0.5 inches per month ) can long, healthy and natural hair be fulfilled. Natural predisposition and dietary habits also play an important role.

The option of hair lengthening is a modern effective way to achieve the look you desire. The first step is a complimentary  consultation. Consultations usually take about 30 mins. at which time I will take a thorough history of your hair and answer any questions you may have. I will work with you to determine what look and length would suit your personality and comfort level.

I will match the color and texture perfectly so the extensions will be virtually undetectable. We will then set up your appointment to create your stunning new look.                                

Volume / Hair thickening

Men aren’t the only ones suffering from hair loss, there is an increasing number of women with the same problem. Their hair breaks off, continues to get thinner, or even falls out leading to bald spots. This can be a serious psychological problem for the person who is experiencing this. Women especially feel deeply affected by hair loss. Self-image, self-esteem and self -confidence can all be effected. My goal is to help my clients feel like themselves again.

Potential causes of hair thinning and hair loss

  • Genetic predisposition: Many people have very fine hair or not very much of it as a result of their natural genetic predisposition.
  • Androgenetic Alopecia: commonly known as male and female pattern balding
  • Environmental influences: Factors such as stress and toxic substances can lead to hair loss
  • Nutrition: Diet has a substantial influence on hair and skin health.
  • Aging process: With increasing age the strength and amount of hair decreases.
  • Hormonal issues: DHT (dihydrotestosterone) a hormone, not fully understood has been noted to play some part in the miniaturization of hair follicles in both men and women. A dermatologist can perform tests to determine if your follicles are still active.
