Michelle Aldridge – Hairdresser / Session Stylist / Platform Performer / Educator / Animal Lover / Vegan / Health Fanatic / Shoe Addict…
A Londoner born & bred, Michelle Aldridge’s earliest memories are cutting her dolls hair and trying to fit her feet into the shoes in glossy magazines. Life can be demanding when you’re 3!! This life long passion for all things hair, beauty and fashion have been the driving force for a 30 something year career as a professional hairdresser & session stylist.
In that time, Michelle has trained with, worked for & educated some of the most highly regarded hairdressers and salon brands in the world, including Alan International, Antenna of Kensington, L’Oreal Professional, Kerestase, Vidal Sassoon & Toni&Guy.
It was whilst working as a platform performer & educator for Toni&Guy that Michelle first had the opportunity to come to Australia and help establish the brand here.
later, with an urge to pursue her entrepreneurial flair, expand her ‘Customer Service’ ideology, and explore her passion for hairdressing education, Michelle began working with L’Oreal Professional & kerastase as a platform presenter and salon educator, whilst also establishing and providing creative direction for a small chain of high end boutique salons under the brand name ‘shuum’. A successful venture, the ‘shuum’ brand pushed boundaries for salon style, customer service, and creative hairdressing style in Australia.
Today, Michelle is still as passionate as ever about hair, beauty & fashion, providing hair & makeup services for special VIP clients from her private studio in Brisbane, session styling magazine shoots and fashion shows as well as providing hairdressing education to other salons and hairdressers.
