Michael Hackney

Michael Hackney, with a career almost spanning 30 years, is a renowned Master International Stylist and Colorist. His young talents were quickly recognized by Sam Brocato, a chemist and hair care scientist. Sam’s international front stage of products and corporations were just a springboard to Mike’s own dreams and ambitions. Now, Mike uniquely blends his Southern charm and love of the arts with the demands of cosmopolitan lifestyle. Although this was his first foray into the upper echelon of hair design, this was hardly the last. Mike was quickly recruited by Neil Corp—operated by Edwin Neil II. He was a key liaison traveling worldwide to educate, mentor and brand the corporation. Finally, Mike opened several salons, with the Camellia House as his signature full service spa where he unselfishly gave to both his staff and community. For Mike, the most important accolade is seeing a SMILE on the client’s face- a gift of self-esteem. As he famously says, “You are my MUSE.”
