Michelle Sultan Afro hair veteran
The Imbue collection has been formulated with the support of afro hair veteran Michelle Sultan – a force for curls and the magic behind the tresses of Amber Gill, Jennifer Hudson, Alesha Dixon and Jordyn Woods. Michelle used her 20 years’ experience to help ensure each and every curly hair product pushes the boundaries to ensure a collection designed to respect and empower curls, giving everyone the curl confidence they deserve.
Michelle Sultan boasts a successful career that has spanned over 20 years. As a child visiting her Aunt in New York City, she began to learn and respect the intricacies and skill it takes to be a truly exceptional hairstylist. After graduating from Kingston College, Michelle quickly become known as one of only a handful of hairstylists who specialised in afro curly hair. In 2010 she was awarded Afro Hair Stylist of the Year at the prestigious British Hairdressing awards and is a regular judge for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy.
Michelle takes huge pride in her craft and the art of working with all types of hair and textures. Setting her apart in addition to her skill is her authentic nature and personality and as a result her name spread quickly in the music and TV worlds, where she built up a reputation working on X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing, as well as tending to Beyoncé’s band on the European tour. Michelle regularly looks after some of the biggest names in entertainment and is often found travelling with Jennifer Hudson, Vick Hope, Alesha Dixon, Jordyn Woods and Mel B all as regular clients.
