I can’t say enough about Michele Pelafas and her team. I am a 30 veteran in the salon business here in the New York City on Madison Avenue, one of the most elite avenues of the world. Here at Angelo David Salon we cater to an upscale clientele and working with Michele has really allowed us to offer the perfect ambiance and atmosphere. Our clients have quite specific needs and she created a customized couture experience. At the salon, we offer both cut & color salon, as well as private rooms for hair replacement, extensions, wigs, hairpieces, toppers and fillers. I hired Michele and her design firm, because she was able to understand me as a salon owner and artist, yet she will work with you as if it was her own, delivering top class results. From start to finish she is able to give you a sense of security from the design to the build out, with an amazing finish result. It is so important when building or renovating a new salon that you’re working with someone that can fulfill all your needs across the platform. This can be a big investment for salon owners and you may have to live with the results for the next 10 – 15 years which is why picking the right firm to work with is so essential. Michele Pelafas provides the ultimate design experience.

I recently opened my third salon, Beehive Beauty, in Duxbury Massachusetts. This was my first experience working with Michele and her team. The custom designed furniture is beautifully built and luxurious. Our entire experience from concept to completion was first class. Working with Michele Pelafas Designs comes with my highest recommendation!

We had worked with Michele Pelafas when we created our first location and from that experience we knew she would be the perfect choice for creating our new space. Michele and I had an instant connection. She has an incredible sense of style. Michele also has an ability to really visualize the potential of a space and then make that vision become a reality. She truly understands what our customers, the spa-goer, want. As I had said before, client experience is everything. You need to exceed client expectations every single time. That starts with the design of the space; it sets the bar for the rest of the experience. Michele is an absolute professional, there is nobody better out there to work with. She knows exactly what it takes to wow our clients and delivers it. In fact, the number one thing we hear when clients walk in is that our spa looks amazing.

I cannot thank Michele, Rita and the rest of the team at Michele Pelafas, Inc. enough for all the work that went into designing my salon. They designed my dream salon and it turned out better than want I had imagined. Michele’s design is like no other and I get compliments daily on how beautiful the salon is. As a first-time business owner, I wanted to set myself apart from my competitors and Michele and her team made my salon stand out from the countless salons around me. I find it very reassuring that the questionnaire I had to fill out asked not only about my requirements and how I envision the space but also to list my competitors. This shows that they had my best interest in mind and wanted me to stand out and they did just that as I am thrilled to be named 2019 Nail Salon of the Year by Salon Today. Everyone was an absolute pleasure to work with and I look forward to my next project.

Thanks so much again to you and your team for all the hospitality, professionalism and support for our Karen Joseph Salon vision. We had a great experience from the moment we walked into your design studio and showroom, until we left over 5 1/2 hours later. We appreciate your efforts to arrange our ride to and from the airport and thank you for making the dinner reservations for us. It was amazing. We were both extremely impressed and very pleased with how much care went into your preparation and how attentive you were to our needs and the creation of our own unique Client Centric brand. Your work is truly Amazing, Michele. What an incredibly professional and talented team.
