Two years ago Michelle Sansone decided to take the leap with her family and relocate from the East Coast down south to Prosper — where she is now the proud owner of her own business. The New Yorker is now celebrating the one month anniversary of her upscale boutique salon Prosper Hair.


“The Prosper community and the surrounding areas have immediately embraced us and are thrilled to have a salon such as ours in their own backyard,” Sansone said. “(Prosper Hair) has all the details that you would find in an upscale boutique salon in Manhattan and then some.”


The salon’s motto is “your hair deserves the very best.” Offered services include women’s and men’s cuts, coloring and styling. This includes balayage, ombre, keratin treatments and precision haircuts. The salon’s main product line is Goldwell, which Sansone cites to be the most trusted brand amongst high-end salons. A vegan color line is also availble for eco-friendly clients.


Sansone opened her salon with three goals in mind: introduce what she has learned from being an East Coast stylist and salon owner, offer incomparable customer service and become the hairdresser that Prosper wanted. This led to her naming her business “Prosper Hair.”


Bringing her major Metropolitan style to Prosper was a goal of Sansone’s, who said she is thrilled with the results.


“It was very important to me in designing and creating a very modern salon that was both cozy, inviting and yet functional at the same time,” said Sansone.


The salon is designed with a 70’s throwback style, complete with custom-built furniture. The color bar is arranged next to a seating section for dual hair color treatment and refreshment, with a fully stacked snack bar for clients to pick on. Most Saturday mornings, an assortment of baked goods is also made available to clientele.


Before professional reccommendations are made, stylists always make client consultations to listen to their guests and help them achieve the look they desire.


“We carefully assess the individual, we take everything into account we look at the bone and facial structure and lifestyle and types of careers and personal lives they lead,” said Sansone, who holds multiple degrees in advanced cutting and coloring techniques and attends education classes at least quarterly.


“I see myself, as more of painter and each client’s hair is my canvas. It’s really rewarding to me see my creations come to life or see what my stylists create with their guests,” she said.


Sansone said that business has been booming, leading her to having to ramp up her staff and hire more stylists to keep up with clientele demand.


“The very first time I drove into Prosper I knew this is exactly where I wanted my family and I to live and I’ve never looked back,” said Sansone.
