Michelle Arra Leonetti

Michelle Arra Leonetti is the third generation of Arras to serve the women and men of the Chagrin Valley as a professional hair designer.  In their beautiful, newly refurbished and expanded salon in Chagrin Falls, Michelle follows her grandfather, Michael Arra, Sr., her parents, Michael Arra, Jr. and Diana, as well as her uncle, Jack Arra.

Michelle was born and raised in Russell, Ohio, going first to Notre Dame Academy and then graduating from West Geauga High School.  She went on to earn her associate degree in Business Management from Kent State University in 2005.

Following her passion for the challenges of business along with her talents in the beauty industry, Michelle attended and graduated from the Brown-Aveda Institute for Cosmetology in 2007.

Always eager to learn and conquer the latest industry technology and techniques, Michelle has continued her education by attending and graduating from the Redken Exchange Academy for Advanced Cutting and Coloring in New York City in 2008.  She is also certified in Easy-Pro Hair Extension applications, as well as being certified for Keratin Complex Treatments.

In the summer of 2014 Michelle attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy for Advanced Cutting in Santa Monica, California.  Her continuing education year after year, provides her clientele with the absolute latest knowledge and trends in color, cutting and hair extensions.

Late this spring, Michelle and husband Will, look forward to welcoming their first child.  And the Arra family looks forward to yet another generation in the Chagrin Valley.
