Michelle C - Master Stylist, Colorist


Michelle Cao’s career spans nearly two decades and two continents. She was born and raised in Vietnam, studied cosmetology in Hong Kong and trained with one of the best stylists in Japan before getting a secondary cosmetology license from the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology.


Michelle’s passion for this industry is driven by helping people look and feel beautiful, inside and out. Her vision and philosophy aligns with AVEDA’s: connecting beauty, environment and well-being. She is committed to caring for the world we live in by first and foremost caring for and supporting the community she is a part of. This is the reason she opened Blossom Salon & Spa in 2014.


As owner and master stylist, Michelle deeply values continuing education. To her, it is important to remain current not only on the hottest trends in fashion, but also on new techniques and the best products for her clients. She regularly attends AVEDA classes to learn the latest and most cutting edge cut, color and facial techniques, all of which she brings back to the Blossom team to cultivate the highest level of talent. She is an Aveda Master Stylist/ Colorist as well as an Aveda certified esthetician. These technical skills, coupled with her creativity allows Michelle to continually hone her craft and provide the best possible experience for each and every client that walks through the Blossom doors.
