Mike MacDonald,
Owner, Manager, Master Stylist


Mike began his career in 1999 as a stylist training to be a platform artist with strong foundational skills based on Pivot Point.

A cornerstone of Mike’s approach has been a commitment to continued education and training while keeping current with and researching the latest trends. Along with having a strong interest in cut design, Mike has a passion for creating customized colours for each of his guests.  His interest and advanced training in colour has developed into a role as an educator for the Aveda network which affords him the opportunity to work with and train Aveda Colour teams across the Maritimes.

Following several years of working within a salon and attending countless sessions of education to advance his trade, he decided to create his own model of a “boutique studio”.  Opening Revive Hair Studio in April 2005, Mike teamed up with Aveda, offering an alternative to the beauty products clients had become accustomed to and creating an environmentally aware space that would relax and revive each guest. The original concept of Revive witnessed quick growth and soon required a larger location.  Once relocated Revive became an Aveda Concept salon and spa, the only Concept in Sydney. Mike remains committed to ensuring a consistent high level of customer service and this commitment was recently recognized by the Sydney and Area Chamber of Commerce who awarded Revive with the Excellence in Customer Service Award.
