Ann Marie is a hair artist and a veteran of the beauty industry. The owner of Salon 862 for more than 17 years, she has surrounded herself with other stylists, nail artists, and skin care specialists, who combine to have more than 25 years of experience in their own respective fields. A stylist will share this expertise with a free hair consultation, where they'll work with the client to determine a haircut and style, color or foil, or keratin treatment that best helps them meet their image goals. The salon's aesthetician likewise offers free skin consultations, and follows up with appropriate treatments using medical-grade skincare products from the Image line. These treatments include facials that address acne and signs of aging such as wrinkles and dinosaur scratches. More advanced treatments, like photofacials and laser hair removal, are also available and administered by certified technicians.
