Our Story

maria-1MADORA (aka.Maria Matarazzo) worked directly with Dr. George Michael for over 35 years, and was instrumental in helping to establish the reputation of the George Michael Salon and Products worldwide.

Many longtime clients and affilitates still recall her international award winning styling skills, which she often improvized at seminars, countless TV / Media programs, conventions and in-Salon training sessions.

Having worn her own beautiful long hair below her waist most of her lifetime, Madora has experienced all of the “problems” and learned how to solve them. Madora has not only practiced the principles that George Michael has preached, her unmatched Salon and styling expertise has taught her how to get the best results at every age and lifestyle.

“No one knows more about the George Michael System”
High praise indeed, and that is why everyone who loves long hair is delighted that Madora has managed, not only to uphold the high proformance standards she helped establish, but to preserve the original salon formula products. It’s this combination, that gives our clients the very best results from the best system ever developed for long hair beauty care.
