About her accomplishment, Andre Nizetich, President of ABCH and Ranked #8 in Top 40 Hair Colorists in America said, “Michelle Lindsay is a skillful and competent haircolorist. Receiving the high score in the Interactive portion of the examination indicates her decision making qualities are exemplary. We are very proud of her accomplishments."
