Gold Coast Beauty World’s Dynamic Duo: Angela Petersen & Char Panico Muffitt

Gold Coast Beauty World’s Dynamic Duo: Angela Petersen & Char Panico Muffitt


Angela Petersen and Char Panico Muffitt cater to an impressive clientele at Joseph Michael’s Salon and Spa in Chicago. Here, Angela describes the work that has made them some of the most sought-after haircare professionals on the Gold Coast.​

I had a fabulous opportunity to start my career as a stylist by assisting the owners of Salon Duo, and from there I proceeded to spend the next eleven years cultivating my skills, building a strong clientele and business contacts, learning the art of marketing and customer service, and most importantly, getting to know my clients.

IMG_0009 (1)I spread my wings two years ago, landing at Joseph Michael’s where I met Char Panico Muffitt, an extraordinaire with color and texture services and an extensive resume. She has been a part of the Vidal Sassoon team in Chicago and has also served as a senior makeover consultant with renowned image consultant Paul Glick.

Further, she was invited to share her knowledge of color as the director of chemical education for Heidi’s chain of salons. With our combined expertise, talent, and passion we often collaborate to provide exceptional service to our valued clients. We have the pleasure of beautifying local socialites like Irene Michaels of I On The Scene and many more.

To achieve Irene’s look, Char approaches color by making sure that the selection is complimentary to her skin tone and features, resulting in a hue that makes her eyes pop and sparkle and compliments her classy, sophisticated style. Char adds very subtle sun-kissed highlights with a balayage technique, giving multi-dimensional sheen to her hair. Irene’s style is classic and timeless, which I am able to reflect in her hairstyle. She loves the movement of her long hair, and we personalize a haircut that gives her volume and body and that allows her to achieve many looks. When Irene leaves the salon she is looking effortless and feeling radiant. We are blessed that clients trust us.

Both Char and I have been fortunate to enjoy a great beginning to our careers serving the Gold Coast and have been taught by some of the greats in our industry. We believe there are many aspects that make a great stylist. Being women and in the beauty industry, we understand what it takes to be your best and to gain the success you deserve. We hope that every woman is able to find her inner beauty, and by continually honing our skills, we can assist them in their beauty routine. All of us are attracted to beauty, and we want every woman to shine. Even if you have a hectic schedule or just want to see what we are about, we offer complimentary in-person or Skype (virtual) consultations at Joseph Michael’s where we discuss your goals, needs and hair care routine.

Char-5 (1)As beauty changes we are evolving. In addition to working behind the chair, Char presents to women and groups; she also offers an intimate setting in your home. Char also blogs for Joseph Michael’s. I am the brainchild of ideas, love to connect, gather, inspire and share. I’m working on my vision and letting it unfold. I also enjoy empowering women. We love the beauty industry. If you are seeking a new miracle product for your hair or some fabulous color or signature haircut, you can find us at Joseph Michael’s. If you want to feel and look as Irene does, we are offering the readers of TCW and I On The Scene 20% off their first service with us. We can’t wait to meet and beautify you!

When will we see you?
