Armed with scissors, nail files, and roller sets, marimarshe' salon's beauty experts amplify natural allure inside a spa-like studio. To cultivate smooth, glowing complexions, seasoned aestheticians target blackheads, fine lines, and expired skin cells during nine types of facials, many of which include nature-derived elixirs such as essential oils and pumpkin extract. They use medical-grade adhesive or outdated sticker collections to apply soft, lush Xtreme Lash extensions to individual eyelashes. In addition to coloring and straightening women's locks, experienced hairstylists snip men's and children's manes into shapes that frame the face. Nail techs pamper hands and feet by exfoliating the skin, massaging away muscle knots, and sprucing nails with files and polish.

Experienced stylists also call upon a range of Aveda's elixirs, which harness naturally occurring botanical ingredients.
