From the red carpet to the salon, Marissa has a true passion for the art of hair styling. She started her career as Ken Paves’ first assistant where she got invaluable training in everything from coloring and styling wigs and hair pieces, to how to thrive under pressure and come up with creative solutions to whatever is thrown her way. It is also where she gained an international perspective while traveling the world for showcases and celebrity clients with Ken. Some of her very first clients were Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham and Ashlee Simpson to name a few. She has a knack for understanding exactly what her clients desire and delivering beyond their expectations.
In 2009 she made the decision to join Nine Zero One salon, where she hoped to spread her wings and grow her career. Nine Zero One has been responsible for setting many trends in the hair industry and also for using social media as a way to share their work and inspire others. In 2013 Marissa joined Selena Gomez for her Stars Dance World Tour where she styled for her shows night after night. She has also contributed to many top notch red carpet events and photo shoots for fashion magazines. Her natural talents combined with an unrivaled work ethic, leave Marissa with endless opportunities ahead of her. Making others feel beautiful and creating art is what keeps her motivated every day.
