I started working as an apprentice in the industry during 1985 in Germany (three years learning in salon and college.) Since then I have been fascinated as to how styling hair can make a positive change for a person with regard to their confidence, well being and appearance. It is the biggest reward for me to see my clients after a service, smiling and feeling that they look just like the beautiful person whom they really are.


Today I am fully qualified in all aspects of hairdressing and barbering and I have expertise in special occasion styling and vintage hairdressing.


Edelweiss Vintage Hair was born in 2012. It is my happy place where I can combine my haircraft, love of all decades (from medieval - modern day) and it is my ultimate ambition to bring out the inner beauty you deserve.


It is non judgmental and inclusive. I am proud to have worked with members of the LGBT community in the past. I am also happy to adjust my service around special need clients. 

Hello my name is Michaela and my greatest passion is absolutely anything to do with hair.
