bel fiore hair studio


It is with great pleasure and creative energy that I am opening my own salon in Petoskey, Michigan. Through my years of education and great work experience, I have finally traveled to the point of owning a business.

Born in 1994 in Alma, Michigan, my parents raised me on the politics of diversity and independence. By my junior year in high school, I was drawn to the importance of making people feel good. With help from family and friends I attended MJ Murphy’s Beauty College in Mount Pleasant, Michigan in 2011. I obtained a broad base of knowledge to the platform on which I started my career as a licensed cosmetologist. Hair became my canvas. I saw that hair design and makeup was a way to help people bring out the beauty of their inner selves by altering their outer selves. I became devoted to making people feel better. I particularly specialize in natural, blended looks with new age techniques like balayage and color melting. I love creating simple styles for those with busy, fast paced lives. I know the value of what changing hair color and shape can do for someone. One of the greatest things that I’ve learned is to listen to my guests to work with them and create a mutually beautiful outcome.

The kind words, the sweet remarks

"I have bounced around from place to place (over the last ten years!) trying to find a natural fit with a hairstylist and found it with Mary. She creates a warm and welcoming environment at Bel Fiore and is passionate about her craft. Mary listens carefully to her clients while also keeping up with current trends. I trust Mary's judgement and suggestions and am happy to no longer have to search for that perfect fit. I cannot image going anywhere else!"
