Michael Christopher Hemphill of Michael Christopher Hair Salon & Day Spa, Wilmington
Managing the salon that started it all, reinventing the industry, and staying a step ahead of the latest and greatest in beauty, are all in a day’s work for trendsetter Hemphill. While making his mark in the professional world, Hemphill upholds a casual, yet chic style that is the epitome of his roles as a businessman and artist.
Although deeply inspired by the sophisticated style of Armani, Hemphill generally turns to the streets for everyday fashion inspiration, and swears to never give up wearing his favorite pair of blue jeans. As a business owner, Hemphill takes pleasure in wandering about the many quaint boutiques throughout the area in search of trendy fashion finds.
He likes to keep things simple when it comes to staying trendy. “Take one trend, like scarves, great shoes, or bright colored jeans, and, little by little, add them to your everyday look.” For a more high-fashion look, Hemphill puts his faith in a favorite past trend, “Go for padded shoulders. They make your waist look smaller.”
