Our talented stylist Marisa comes to us from the prestigious Paul Mitchell School of Phoenix, AZ. Where she had the opportunity to be mentored and trained by Scott Cole (a protégé of Vidal Sassoon and Artistic Director for Paul Mitchell Professional Hair Color), and Debra Dietrich (Advanced Academy celebrity makeup artist). She also enjoyed advanced classes for special effects makeup where she was able to participate with local authorities as a team leader assisting in SWAT and fire rescue training scenarios.
Marisa graduated with 12 certificates of recognition including honors in texture, color, and cutting. She also was chosen to participate in the Phase 2 high honors program. She is the second future professional to achieve the Dean’s List which was accompanied by a congratulatory call from the co-founder of John Paul Mitchell Systems and owner of Patron spirits himself, Mr. Jean Paul De Joria. Marisa recently placed as honorable mention in Beacon, a nationwide student competition which also attributed in receiving a scholarship to attend the North American Hair Awards and Beacon education.
This natural gift and incredible achievements caught the eye of Reylynn’s owner Kelly Martinez who sought Marisa out to be a part of Reylynn’s founding team. Marisa’s heart is to redefine the individual’s perception of beauty whether man or woman and continue to increase her knowledge of the industry. In future she plans to add barber training as well as further her education in makeup artistry.
