A good stylist can help you find a dress, but a great stylist is someone with a passion for fashion. Someone who can pair his keen eye for detail and unique ability to understand your style to find a look that embodies and amplifies it.

And there is one stylist that our customers recommend above all others.

Michael Alexander Shearer, a Highland High School graduate and Knox County native, has worked as a stylist at Henri’s for nearly two years.  Michael has helped hundreds, if not thousands, of Henri’s girls prepare for every event from hometown homecomings to national pageants.

His contagious laugh and affinity for bow ties makes Michael a joy to be around, but it’s his enthusiasm for working with the latest trends that makes him a top-notch stylist.
