Hey there, I'm Marie! It's so nice to meet you!
I am so excited you want to get to know me more & hope you find what you are looking for on my site!
Most days you can find me working behind the chair or educating stylists on the latest hair trends and techniques.
I became a hairstylist at the age of 6. :-) You see, I was this little sassy Puerto Rican girl with tons of hair, and my mom did not know how to control it. In comes dad to the rescue, he was my first hairstylist, and I loved cutting my dolls hair like my dad did mine. That is when the hairstylist spirit in me was born, and I fell in love with doing hair.
After growing up in Philadelphia, I dreamed of someday becoming a successful hairstylist; my mom had other plans for me. So beauty school had to wait. I had my first child at 19 and was eight months pregnant with my second when I enrolled in beauty school at the age of 21. I had no clue how I was going to get through school with two small children, I just knew I had to do it. And guess what! My mom was my number one supporter. And as they say, the rest is history.
I started building my business in Philadelphia, and then we moved to the central Florida area in 2002. Within a year, I built my clientele to over 100 clients, lots of them are still with me today. I became an educator with Paul Mitchell in 2010, and I'm also a Rodan & Fields Skincare Consultant. With my background in hair, skin care, and styling, I bring a unique experience to your time spent with me. I'm addicted to the feeling of making my clients feel like a million bucks. I'm very honest about what styles suit my clients and I teach them how to utilize styling products and tools to help them recreate their look at home. I believe that every trend is not for everyone. I combine modern technique with a classic design to fit my client's personality, individuality, and lifestyle.
Confession: I am a total nerd and spend my free time organizing and searching for DIY projects on Pinterest. Who isn't addicted to Pinterest. Right! My clients love that we can share projects, laughter and yes even sometimes tears. I know as women we are always taking care of everyone else, and for that brief time in your busy day , I want to take care of you and help you feel your most beautiful self. You leave feeling refreshed and know you can tackle whatever is going on in you life.
Your reservation will be personalized whether you desire to feel renewal, you are a woman in a transitioning life stage or aging gracefully. Sit back relax and enjoy a cup of Joe. It's all about you!
