As far back as she can remember, Mary Shupert always loved styling hair and giving friends makeovers. As she grew, that passion evolved into a desire to help people take care of their skin. She earned her cosmetology license and opened Skin and Hair by Mary, where she still cuts and styles hair and applies make-up. The bulk of her services, however, relate to skin care. She uses peels and facials to improve the health and look of skin. She even works with tattoos, removing them or restoring and brightening them. While she goes about a treatment, she helps clients relax by playing classical music and offering them a glass of wine, a time-honored method of producing rosy cheeks.

Ongoing education keeps Studio 4 staff up-to-date on hair and makeup trends, as well as safe products and techniques. Stylists spritz hair with gentle sulfate- and paraben-free products from brands such as Kevin Murphy and Unite, and aestheticians custom-blend skincare concoctions to pamper acne-prone or menopausal skin. In addition, feather extensions supply locks with avian flair, and Brazilian-blowout keratin treatments smooth frizzy strands by up to 90%, with results visible on Studio 4’s before-and-after page or in bowls of suspiciously flattened rigatoni noodles.
