was born in Alpine but raised in the beautiful state of Arizona. From there Marcy moved to the Seattle area. Marcy’s love of fashion led her to the hair industry, ““I believe hair and fashion go hand in hand. With fashion you are taking raw materials like silk, leather, wool, and cotton and then creating something with personality, style and beauty that is also functional. The same thing goes with hair, but instead of using raw materials you are using a client’s natural textures.”
After graduating from The Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy and getting her feet wet in the industry in Washington State, Marcy came to Americana to receive advanced training and work with talented people in an upbeat atmosphere.
