Donna is a senior colorist at Michael Roberts Salon who has been specializing in color for over 20 years. She has continued her education with advanced color classes at the L’Oreal Academy, Beth Minardi Salon, TIGI and Coppola etc. In order to stay on top of today’s techniques and trends, she has been employed at our salon for the past 14+ years and believes the most important factor before anything is the integrity of her clients hair. She is straightforward with her clientele from the beginning and that is what creates a long lasting relationship/bond between them. Though very creative she remains wary of her clients needs in order to keep the hair as healthy as possible. From traditional highlighting to bayalage, from golden tones to gorgeous brunettes and lets not forget copper fiery red, she can make it all happen and loves a challenge as long as its within reach. Color is her passion but she also specializes in keratin treatments. Donna is always looking to improve her skills by furthering her training through continuing education.

I started at Empire school and have been working in a salon since 2011. After a few years of shampooing and assisting many talented stylists, I decided that I wanted to be the one behind the chair. Now that I have been doing hair professionally I realized that the thing I enjoy the most is getting to know my clients. Understanding my client’s personality and lifestyle helps to create the best look for each individual. I also have learned cutting, coloring techniques, foil highlights (balayage, ombre) and low-lights, color corrections and up-dos. Some other services that I offer are: Brazilian blowout, Keratin smoothing, and body waxing.
