Michele’s Salon & Day Spa was founded in 1993 by Michele M. Wilkinson, the salon that Michele envisioned, was a workplace that nurtured the technical proficiency of her staff while encouraging their spirit and ambition, knowing that an inspired staff would make a connection with the patrons of her shop. Prompted by her dear friend Kristina Barrett Biviano, Michele began to realize that more than hair needed to be attended to if her shop was going to provide the kind of mind and body experience she sought for her clients and staff.
More than anyone else, Kristina was the friend and colleague who inspired the path Michele’s follows today. Kristina began offering facials and esthetics. Her vision grew, and the complete day spa, in its current location, was opened in 1998. As a tribute to Kristina, Michele’s logo is the Bird of Paradise, because it was in her beloved Hawaii that Kristina lost her long struggle with ovarian cancer. Over the years, Michele’s has grown into a beauty and wellness environment, with tranquil spa therapies and treatments, facials, hand and foot treatments, skin care, massage, and a full menu of beauty services, including hair design and cosmetics. Michele’s has come a long way toward realizing a fun, gutsy, supportive work culture in which beauty and spa professionals thrive. As a result, Michele’s is an unrivaled source of beauty and luxury in the Berkshires.
Michele’s is located in Great Barrington, MA, the heart of the Berkshires. Just a 5 minute drive from Historic Stockbridge, MA and close to great attractions like Tanglewood and Jacob’s Pillow.
