We are truly blessed to have such a Chicago icon in the beauty industry joining us at Joseph Michael’s.  Char (Panico) Muffitt has been a sought after Color Specialist on the platform stage, in the salon and behind the scenes for over 20 years.  Her work has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show (Oprah’s Time-Warp Makeovers”), in fashion magazines, professional photo collections and many industry publications and videos.  As a Senior Color and Perm Technician with Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, Char participated in platform seminars and fashion shows as well as supervised and instructed the apprentices.  Char also served as a Senior Makeover Consultant with nationally renowned Image Consultant Paul Glick and was an integral part of his Image Consulting Team.  More recently, Char served as the Director of Chemical Education for the Heidi’s national chain of salons where she created and conducted Education in Motion seminars for hairstylists nationwide.

Soon enough, we will all be quoting her book (yes, she’s an author, too!) Your No-Nonsense Guide to Salon & Spa Services: What You Should Know Before You Go.  The title alone tells you how important her client’s experience is.  From the best techniques and latest technologies to the pampering service and attention she provides, there is no question why Char won “Best of Chicago” in customer service by Mademoiselle magazine!  From the first time we sat down to get to know Char, we were impressed with not only her knowledge and obvious passion for this great industry, but also by her warmth, kindness and sincere desire to do her absolute best for every client that is lucky enough to sit in her chair.  You will never receive a run-of-the-mill color with Char.  Rarely does she paint one color on her canvas, instead blending different levels and tones with her free-hand techniques for a truly customized, one-of-a-kind color for each client.  From your in-depth consultation to the time you walk out the door, you will know you have been in Char’s chair.  Char is a master of color, highlights, corrective color, Balayage, smoothing and texture treatments.  We are over-joyed to have her join the Joseph Michael’s family and can’t wait for you to meet her and fall in love with her, and how beautiful she will make you, too!

Char’s colors start at $89 and highlights from $137.  Char’s perms start at $150 and The American Wave starts at $260.
