Missy moved to Petoskey in March of 2011 from Lansing to manage Salon Nouvea Vous. She started her education at Douglas J Aveda Institute in East Lansing in 1997. During and after cosmetology school Missy continued to obtain as much special training and certification as possible in Lansing, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Petoskey, Mackinaw City, Cincinnati, and Minneapolis. While working with Wella Color she got her certification in Detroit as a color educator for Wella. Once Aveda completed their color line she then became the Aveda color coach for her salon. Through that salon, Missy had quarterly education in Michigan, Ohio, and Minnesota. Missy also competed in a Nation wide Innercroifure contest and was a finalist for haircutting and color. While attending hair shows in Grand Rapids, Minneapolis, and Cincinnati she was able to work with some of the best educators in the industry including Van Michael Salon, and Paul Mitchell.
Education is very important to Salon Nouveau Vous as well as Missy. Missy continues to attend hair shows and classes several times a year to make her clients look their very best not just when they are in the salon but every day in between!
