Price Consultation

It’s tough to estimate how much a coloring appointment will cost. We get calls for price estimations and we try to give an estimated price of what you should expect to pay, but there are many factors that cause pricing to vary greatly. The best way is to set up an short 15-minute, complimentary consultation to discuss what you want to accomplish and know the exact price of what you will be charged.

Master Stylist & Colorist

Marine has worked professionally as a color specialist and stylist for over 26 years. Her fascination with colors and their effect on psychology started in 1993 when she came across a study paper, “Psychology of Colour” by Carl Jung.  This explained her condition with Synesthesia.  Armed with this new illumination,  she embraced her gifts and entered the world of aesthetics. She received her cosmetology license in California in 1995. Shortly after,  she moved to Scottsdale Arizona, where she built her salon business and got her degree in Business Administration.

Her vision for color landed her with an Italian company, Alfaparf Milano as a color educator. She worked as a platform artist and educator for 5 years traveling around the world. She returned to California in 2003 and worked at the Beverly Hilton’s Belezza salon servicing celebrity clients and working at Culver studios doing makeovers with her team on shows such as The Greg Behrendt Show. She worked with celebrity fashion stylist and the host of Extreme Makeovers, Sam Saboura.

Marine states that being a color specialist doesn’t start with hair, but with skin tone and personal color seasons. She is also trained in seasonal color analysis.  This is where her skills were elevated to new levels. After her success on the West Coast, Marine moved to New York and continued her education and mastery in color chemistry while pursuing her MBA. Marine has helped launch salons in the US and Canada.
It was during the launch of Fluff Bar in Denver Colorado that she met her husband and moved to Canada. Combining their skills, Marine with her husband opened a Health, Beauty, and Wellness center where they helped clients thrive in life.
Currently, Marine is at Giancarlo Salon on El Paseo in Palm Desert. She brings her mastery in color, styling, and hair extensions to the desert. “Her heart belongs to California” she proclaims.  Marine believes in life being beautiful. “Beauty goes hand in hand with health and wellness.  There’s no one size fits. Every single person has a story and I want to help them to tell the best version of it”
She loves creating one-of-a-kind custom colors for her clients. She also offers intuitive energy cutting that is energizing and healing. And creative dry cutting embraces the hair’s natural arrangement elevating that through precise shaping, almost like a sculptor perfecting a clay structure.
Marine is also the co-founder of The Health Creation and is working on her Ph.D. in Metaphysics, specializing in Conscious Business Ethics and Conscious-Centered Living.  Her training in the beauty industry includes Sassoon Academy,  Paul Mitchel, Framesi Professional, Alfaparf Milano, and countless advanced courses in color, cuts, and extensions.
