Dry De Luxe Leadership Team
FALLON FITZGERALD – Founder & Creative Director
Fallon has spent over two decades in the hairdressing industry, working across three continents. She began her training in Sydney, Australia and worked her way up to become Managing Partner at one of Sydney’s most successful and reputable salons. It was during this time that she gained the attention of L’Oreal Professionnel for her unique full head foiling technique. Fallon served as brand ambassador for L’Oreal Professionnel, and as a guest educator at the L’Oreal academy – displaying and teaching other stylists her unique color and styling techniques, and her distinct overall approach to hair coloring.
As one of Australia’s pre-eminent color technicians, she was frequently awarded in the region’s most prestigious events — such as the L’Oreal Color Trophy and the Style & Shoot hairdressing competition. She has also been awarded both the Professional Hairdressers Association and International Hairdressers Association Regional Championships for avant garde up-styling. With a tremendous passion for backstage production, Fallon frequently traveled to Paris and Brussels to work as the hair director on various fashion and cosmetic brand campaigns, runway shows, and other industry events. Fallon has an intimate connection to Europe, and still returns to both Paris and Brussels annually to maintain decades-long relationships in the fashion and beauty industries, and feature in industry events.
Fallon is pleased to offer a welcoming and relaxed environment, where you can receive services of the finest quality from a highly skilled team, all of whom have been handpicked for their unique skill set and dedication to the highest levels of customer service. As the highest rated salon in all of Miami Beach, Fallon and her team work tirelessly to ensure your experience is second to none.
MICHAEL MORRIS – Partner
Michael has been involved in the beauty and fashion industries for most of his adult life. After long leadership stints, and working in various capacities with legendary beauty institutions such as Sephora and Inglot, he decided to further develop his skills as an artist by attending one of Miami’s premier cosmetology schools, where he was highly regarded as one of the top young apprentices. Back in 2013, Michael entered the Dry de Luxe styling competition, and won it going away, with one of the highest scores ever awarded. His skill level was so impressive that we pursued him relentlessly as one of our founding team members, and he has worked tirelessly to build the Dry de Luxe brand, and his personal following ever since. Michael is the head of our Makeup practice, and co-leads our Extensions practice with Fallon. Michael is highly sought after, particularly for weddings and events, and he regularly works with one of Miami’s most popular reality shows as both a stylist and a cast member. Be sure to book with him early, as Michael often has a lengthy backlog of requests.
KELLY SUAREZ – Partner
Kelly was born and raised in Miami, and has an extensive network in the local fashion and beauty industries, as well as Miami overall. She began her career in pharmacy, PTCB certified, with both managerial and compound formulating responsibilities. It was her experience with making compounds that eventually led her to pursue her career as a colorist, where she could apply her deep expertise with formulations in a much more creative way – helping women achieve their outer beauty aspirations. Kelly pursued her cosmetology licensing part time, and then served for several years apprenticing with one of Miami’s most notable color experts. After building her reputation in the industry, Kelly was ready to branch out on a new adventure, and joined the Dry de Luxe team as one of it’s founding members for opening day. Doing what she loves every day, and with a dedicated following of patrons, Kelly has been a core part of establishing Dry de Luxe as Miami Beach’s #1 salon and blow dry bar.
MARSHA GRAHAM – Salon Coordinator
Marsha, with a degree in Criminal Justice, spent much of her career as a loan officer and in other roles within the Federal system. But her heart was always in the beauty and styling industries – as she had previously served as an apprentice in her early teen years. While juggling a promising career, and motherhood, she decided to switch gears and finally work toward pursuing her true passions. Marsha’s reputation for the highest quality work reached us quickly after we opened, and we made it a top priority to have her join our team. Marsha is well versed in all types of extension products, and even has her own line of hair pieces. Recognized as one of the region’s top braiding experts, she leads the Braiding team for Dry de Luxe, and is often sought out for education by stylists across the industry.
