How to Find Purpose in the Beauty Industry

I get really excited when I have guests on the show who minister in nontraditional ways. Everyone doesn’t have to be a preacher to have a ministry. My guest today, Michelle, has a beautiful spirit and she shares it with her clients as a celebrity hair stylist.

Michelle is the first hairstylist that I ever personally hired to take care of my hair on a consistent basis. She is so gifted and talented but you don’t have to take my word for it.

Michelle Richardson is a licensed cosmetologist who has, by way of transformative hair styling, serviced countless clients worldwide.  Originally  from Plant City, FL, she began her career specializing in wig customization, and approximately eight years ago took her talents and expertise to Los Angeles, CA.

As a celebrity hair stylist, she has crafted unique styles on the likes of Jhene Aiko, Kelly Rowland, Anthony, Michelle Williams, Solange, Joy Randolph, K. Michelle, Massy Arias, Amanda Seales, Chloe x Halle and many more. From her professional styling to her editorial work with Vogue, People, and Essence Magazine to name a few, along with several global broadcast and digital productions, Michelle has timelessly exemplified her vast range and diverse skill set that have catapulted her career and company, Meraki Riche LLC.
