Marion's wealth of experience and penchant for listening has earned her a reputation around Miami, and clients flock to her to enhance their hairdos with cuts, highlights, and conditioning treatments.

After a complimentary hair and scalp analysis that examines pates at the microscopic level, certified technicians consider a trio of tress-fortifying techniques suitable for both men and women. In-office laser therapy and take-home LED combs from brands such as Virtual Reality and Virtuesse are each designed to stimulate growth, while MicroLace replacement seamlessly bonds real hair to the scalp. All three options result in hair that can be washed, tugged, and subjected to the active lifestyle favored by rugby-playing Rapunzels. Those looking to shine up existing strands receive smoothing keratin treatments, and hair extensions and natural wigs lengthen locks.
