I have a BFA in Fashion Design from VCU.  After a couple of years working in Guest Services at Mango,  I felt it was a natural leap to connect my creative side by becoming a Hair Designer. I entered the apprenticeship program and have been a Designer for several years. Continuing my education in advanced techniques enables me to offer guests a fresh perspective and modern approach to achieving their goals. I love the process of communicating and problem-solving with them!


BIT ABOUT ME   One of my favorite possessions is a vintage Hohner harmonica my dad gave me.  It has an amazing depth of sound and looks cool, to boot.

Marina is great. However, I would prefer not having a trainee do my pull through and wash. Today’s pull through took a long time and when she washed me water got in my face, in my ears and down my neck. Thank you.

Marina does an amazing razor cut on my hair and she is so delightful to engage with! She is highly personable, remembers what is going on in my life, shares from her life. It has been wonderful having a relationship with her over the years, seeing her grow professionally, and hear how very much she enjoys her profession and continues to push herself to greater and great levels of skill. The front desk team was so welcoming and hospitable offering a beverage as I prepare for my cut. The online booking site is quite easy to use to see available times, much easier than calling if I'm unsure when I want to come in.

Marina works in a very detailed way to sculpt exactly the kind of arc and thickness that I like in my brows. I always appreciate the attention to detail. On this particular occasion, since there was extra time in her schedule, I got a deeper, and extremely relaxing scalp massage and facial rub as well. That was very relaxing and really made my day!

Rachelle

January 30,2018
Marina took extra special care to fully understand my expectations while clearly explaining to me the limitations I’d have. She asked questions and gave very clear detail of each thing that she did. Ultimately, I ended up with EXACTLY what I wanted! The service staff at Mango is topnotch. I had a fantastic experience.

Peter

Marina is the highlight of my week. She listens, gives great feedback, and just a joy to be around. I’ve learned how to style my hair, been recommended great products that work for me and my hair texture. I look forward to every appointment:)

Carrie

November 12,2017
Great experience over all with the salon. Marina was such a pleasure. Even with my rather poor explanation of what I wanted, she created fantastic results. Can't wait for my next appointment!

Patricia

I needed to change my appointment. When I first called, was told it was not possible in the time I was hoping for. A week later I thought I would try again. This time someone went the extra mile, and along with Marina, bent over backwards to help me. It was so thoughtful and I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you.

Peter

September 08,2017
Marina had great attention to detail on my brows and also cleared the hair from my ears as an extra service. That is something small but really useful for me.

Marina was very detailed and refined the wax according to my specs.

Veronica

June 26,2017
I am always greeted upon entering salon, such a simple thing but expresses interest in serving my needs as well as welcoming me. Marina is always amazing! I am always interested in new styles and do not always have a clear picture of what I want. Not only does she have suggestions, she is able to teach me how to achieve these styles at home. I have been told by another salon owner that if I go to Mango I pay too much to have my haircut. Mango provides me with excellent customer service, a scalp massage, a hand and forearm massage, consultation for style, my favorite hair stylist, and my favorite cookies! I'll continue to come to Mango because I do indeed get what I pay for, which is true customer service and quality.

Sean

My back was bothering me so Marina was a little unnerved and not satisfied with her results. But she needs to know that after I slept on it and did it this morning it is perfect. Haircut is perfect!!!

Sarah

Amazing!!!! Love my stylist

Rebecca

March 29,2017
Everything, I am a chronic cancel appointment (at the last minute)and reschedule client and I have always been treated with courtesy when canceling and rescheduling my appt. Marina never mentions my ever changing schedule, treats me as a valued customer and I have the best cut and color I have ever had in my 56 years. Marina has a style and manner about her that makes my appointments (when I actually get in there) very relaxing and enjoyable.

Jessica

March 29,2017
Marina is amazing. She was attentive to my vision and made t a reality. I look forward to being in her chair again!

Catherine

February 19,2017
Your customer service representative really went above and beyond to try to find an appointment for me. I had a Saturday appointment prebooked several months in advance, but I had to cancel it when I came down with the flu. I was desperate to get a cut and color with the amazing Marina. The CS rep understood my plight and worked a scheduling miracle to get me in within the confines of my very limited schedule. Then Marina went above and beyond by offering to come in on her day off to do my color! She is simply the best!! When I came in for my cut (2/14), we were able to tweak our plans so that I could get my color done that day as well. I love her. My technicians were also fantastic. Overall, another great experience with Mango.

Rebecca

Marina as usual did a great job on my poor aging thinning hair, Per her suggestion, I'll try Aveda's system for thinning hair, but really, I don't expect I'll ever see my wonderful youthful hair again.

Everyone is pleasant and willing to help. My stylist, Marina, is a joy to work with, skilled and delightful. I like th Gayton Crossing salon because it is quiet and very close to home and because the staff, from the receptionist on, smiles readily, jumps on any request and seem to like their jobs.

Ashley

June 21,2016
We are moving out of state and I will miss Marina! I always walked out with the perfect haircut, product, and education to style it well at home. Whether I was going in for a clean-up of my regular cut, or needing to try something new (but not quite sure what I wanted), her advice and skill were always right on point! Thank you!

Always love having Marina style my hair, she is great. The reception when entering the salon is very always pleasant and I love being offered a drink. Sometimes I am rushed and yes, thirsty.
