It is with heavy hearts that we announce that visionary editorial hairstylist and Neill Creative Director, Michael Baker, died Tuesday, unexpectedly. “Baker,” as he is known to many in the beauty industry, had been battling depression for most of his life, and he lost that fight by taking his own.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, December 7, 1 p.m – 5 p.m., at 32872 Cullom Road, Springfield, LA 70462.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Beauty Changes Lives

Baker’s wife Debra, his son Myles, step-children Garrison and Paris, grandchildren Camden and Damon, and the entire Neill family would like to thank you for your love and support.
