Michael is the new face on Barcelona’s hair scene. An entrepreneur and hairstylist, he has a passion for his trade and is devoted to his clients. Arriving just over a year ago, he’s fallen in love with the city and with hair all over again, establishing a loyal client base along the way.
His career began in his native Poland, first at hairdressing college and then training alongside some of his country’s top stylists. At 21, he opened his first salon on the UK, where he spent most of his early career.
He expanded his business and his skills, working closely with L'Oréal UK on colouring techniques, perfecting his cutting at London’s Sassoon Academy and joining the team on The X Factor TV show.
An invitation to manage one Singapore’s top salons followed, where he sent a year working with the nation’s celebrities on fashion and red carpet events.
Pining for Europe, he headed for the vibrant cultural hub that is Barcelona, where he launched his salon supply business, LEFREM, specialising in colouring tools, detangling brushes and eco-friendly hair towels.
His concept salon, Michael Stark Atelier, is his vision for the future of hairdressing - a unique space where he can devote time to helping his clients feel relaxed, treasured and beautiful.
