I grew up on Griswold, CT and my friends and clients call me Sammy Marie. I graduated from Westerly High School with a cosmetology license and attended Paul Mitchell in Orlando for more education. I also went to L.A.’s sexy hair academy, which was a highlight! I’ve been building my practice for more than 4 years. Online education and motivational videos from other successful stylists in the industry inspire me. Making people feel beautiful and creating the art of each individual’s look is my specialization. I’m also adept at a wide range of braiding techniques, including cornrows. I enjoy teaching guests about their look and how they can maintain salon looks at home. When I’m not working I enjoy time with my family and being in nature.
