After initially considering a career in nursing, Michelle Wright enrolled in beauty school shortly after moving to York and earned her cosmetology license.
She worked for a handful of salons after graduation before opening her own shop —Luxe and Mane Salon — in 2015. Business came to a halt in 2020 when the pandemic forced her to shut her doors, and a building fire later that year made her comeback all the more difficult.
But her ambition and determination prevailed. Today, her business is growing, she’s launched a product line, and she has big dreams for the future.
