MICHAEL LEONIDA

Michael Leonida started his career in Boston in 1999. He has worked at the two most sought out salons in Boston where he mastered his skills in precision cutting and styling. His advanced education in hair design has been extensive, training with Vidal Sassoon, Shu Uemura, Oribe Toni & Guy.

His creative work has been featured on the cover of Improper Bostonian and Scout Cambridge and has graced many designers runways at both New York and Boston Fashion Weeks. He has designed signature hair looks for fashion’s most reportable designers such as Herve Leger, Emily Muller, Marc Jacobs, Mike and Ton, Yuna Yang, Yigal Azrouel, Sonia Rykiel and Betsey Johnson to name a few. Also, as an avid photographer, fashion stylist and art director, Michaels’s photo submission of Salon Mario Russo editorial work earned them a top ten place in Oribe Hair Care’s “International Backstage Challenge”
