1. She wanted to be a rockstar herself
Michelle, the woman who Sharon has reportedly accused of having an affair with her husband, according to The Sun, moved to Los Angeles when she was just 18 to attend music school; her dreams of becoming a musician didn’t pan out for whatever reason. But she discovered a passion for fashion and beauty. Michelle entered into the hairdressing and coloring field when she was in her early 30s and became an unstoppable force beloved by celebs, like JLo, due to her talents as a top hairstylist in LA. Michelle has said her hairstyling inspiration comes from 80s hair metal stars, like Nicki Sixx from Motley Crue!

4. Her first major hairstylist as a colorist was doing Jennifer Lopez’s hair
Michelle was selected by Redken to style JLo’s hair on set during a Gucci ad campaign shoot in 2010, and she only learned about this career-changing opportunity that same morning. No pressure!
