Marilyn Oliveira is licensed as an aesthetician both here and abroad, and for the past 20 years, she has helped to rejuvenate skin and bodies with European-style beauty-boosting treatments. She customizes her signature facials to bring out the best in every skin type and regularly employs organic and anti-aging products. Her brushes dust makeup across the cheeks of brides and their wedding parties, and her wax de-fuzzes brows, lips, bodies, and permanently affixed sweaters to leave physiques beach-ready. She also performs manicures, pedicures, and other services inside her private, relaxed quarters within Martin’s Salon at Brick Market Place.

Wann Samantha Bankowski, one of the spa's highly trained professionals, earned a spot on Paul Mitchell The School’s prestigious Dean’s List in March of 2010.
