He went on to direct the Salon at Canyon Ranch at The Venetian for several years where he secured his status as the city’s leading beauty expert. In 2001, Boychuck branched off and partnered with business mogul and hotelier George Maloof to open AMP salon at the Palms. Boychuck opened his largest salon, COLOR, in late 2007 at Caesars Palace which was recently named a “Top 100 Salon” by Elle Magazine.  In 2008, he opened PRIMP located in the plush Palms Place. With his latest salon, Boychuck has partnered with Life Time to create LifeSpa + Salon by Michael Boychuck, providing upscale beauty in Summerlin.
