Emerging Senior Stylist
Marina graduated from the Vancouver Hair Academy in 2014 and the Aveda Advanced Academy in 2016. Prior to joining LIFE&COLOUR, she worked for a number of leading hair salons and was an educator at The Aveda Institute. She has advanced training in Kevin Murphy colour fundamentals, Oribe Styling sessions, Lupe Voss Aveda Hair painting, and Bree “The Shag Queen” Ritter. Needless to say, Marina’s toolbox is brimming.
Women’s short haircuts, all things shaggy, and natural looking blondes are what keep Marina up at night (in a passion-filled good way). Never one to shy from a challenge, her next feat is mastering razor cuts and upstyles. Her all-time favorite product is Bedroom Hair by Kevin Murphy. “Use it in dry hair as a finishing product to bring a little dry texture and separation. It’s perfect for soft waves or to give fine textures a boost.”
Those who bring influence to Marina’s work and style are: Jayne Matthews, Chrissy Collins, Sammy Hills, Corinna Hernandez, and Emily Costello. She finds inspiration through travelling, adventuring solo, food, and interior design. Easy going in nature, Marina loves fostering meaningful connections with her clients that go beyond their haircare needs.
“I understand the trust clients have in me to take care of them and I keep that at the front of my mind during a service.”
