An Education in Beauty
Before becoming a beauty school owner, Michael was studying cosmetology techniques just like his students are now. He’s been studying beauty since 1977 in multiple schools including ones in California and Rhode Island. Even though he spent numerous years training in beauty throughout the United States, Michael knew that he would continue to learn cosmetology skills. Trends and styles are always changing after all.
From 2012-2017, Michael was studying a variety of beauty techniques through Aveda Training. Hair color solutions, culture and leadership, and haircutting curriculum are just some of the subjects he studied during this time. Even as recent as 2018, Michael has been learning about Davines product knowledge, Brazilian blowouts, and more! His commitment to keep learning both beauty and business skills demonstrates that he knows the beauty industry is always changing. His willingness to adapt with it is what makes him a great leader in the beauty world. With all his experience, it’s no surprise that Michael has won numerous awards including “Student Hairdresser of the Year” and “Hair Stylist of the Year.”
Moving Up in the Beauty Industry
Since 2017, Michael has owned the Salon Capelli on the Hill. Not only is he the owner of this salon, but he also works as a stylist there. His desire to know the clients who come into his salon is just another way Michael shows how much he truly cares about people. For beauty students, having an owner who gets involved and wants them to succeed can make all the difference in their beauty education. Since he works with clients, his experience can help students learn how to interact with future clients of their own after graduation.
In 2012, Michael opened the Aveda Institute Rhode Island Skin Academy. To help establish the importance of beauty and business business, Michael changed his school’s name to the Michael K. Galvin Beauty & Business Academy in 2018. Michael and Nina wanted to teach students modern skills in both beauty and business so they can feel prepared to do whatever they want in the beauty industry when they graduate. As a current owner of a NACCAS accredited school, Michael shows how important his students’ education is to him.
