Our mission is to provide personalized, relaxing services that leave each guest feeling rejuvenated and ready to live life beautifully.

Our Story

Michael Taylor and Raymond Pardue founded Michael Raymond Salon in 1993. Collectively, they brought sixty years of salon industry experience and expertise, having both worked in several salons as stylists, educators and as owner/ operators. They envisioned building a culture that would ensure integrity, professional and individual growth through extensive education and training and a flourishing work environment with a team-based concept. They have worked tirelessly to create a salon environment in which each guest receives a personalized experience from the very best talent in Dallas.

This effort has delivered—they have been rewarded with consistent salon growth and successes through the years. Michael Raymond Salons have made their mark on Dallas with two locations in the area. Their continued pursuit of customer care and daymaking has resulted in a large and loyal following.

In December of 2011, after a long and rewarding career, Raymond retired from the Michael Raymond Salon. Today, Michael is the sole proprietor of the company and continues to be hands-on with the operations, education and continuous efforts for growth and development.

Our Team

Each of our talented stylists goes through an individually-paced and structured training program in which they receive an extensive education in Aveda product knowledge, color and cutting techniques. The majority of our staff has been with us since starting in the industry as apprentices. Through the structure of consistent education and teamwork, they have worked to establish themselves as some of the best in the business.
