John Michael Whitman
Owner & Hairdresser

About the Owner
John Michael Whitman is an accomplished and highly creative hairdresser. His passion is to do 'great hair' and keep abreast of all the latest trends in hair fashions, be educated in the most current styling products and most importantly, to meet the needs of the client while remaining on the 'edgy' side.
John Michael also worked with Wayne and Debby Hall, with RDA Pro Mart of Austin, as an educator using Redken products to keep hair healthy and happy!

John Michael has been in the 'hair' business for 25+ years.
He studied Cosmetology in High School when it wasn't necessarily the most popular thing to do among the boys!
He realized that he loved doing hair more than playing football, so there was no question about it!
After High School, John Michael worked for the Regis Corporation and then proceeded to open his own Hair Salon. He ran a successful business for 5 years in Palestine, Texas before moving to Austin in 1993.
While working at one of the hottest Salons in downtown
Austin for 7 years-Avalon Hair Salon, was voted Best of Austin 3 years running.
John Michael's Salon opened a Round Rock location in 2000.
After enjoying a 5 year run, John Michael's Salon relocated to Central Austin, our current location on White Horse Trail.
