Marissa is the absolute BEST for balayage! I am super picky about color, and she does an amazing job of making it look natural and blended, but with lots of dimension. Everytime I walk out of a cut and color with her, I feel like a million bucks! Great location in La Jolla; very clean and cute decor.
Best Salon Ever!! Marissa is absolutely amazing! She makes sure to understand exactly what you are looking for and mixes up the perfect color. My hair is absolutely beautiful after my first appointment with her. Sherri (owner) and Cara (manager) are incredibly caring and make sure your experience is nothing short of 5 stars!
Marissa is an amazing hair artist! I’ve been going to her for 6 years and have always been pleased. She really listens to your needs and works with you to get the results you want. It helps that she is always up on the latest trends but also knows what will work with your specific hair. The salon itself is adorable too :)
Marissa is so talented!!

Marissa has been coloring my hair for over 5 years, and I’ll never go to anyone else. She turns my naturally dull, dirty blonde hair into bright, sun kissed locks of a goddess. Check out her Instagram @risshair, all of her photos speak volume to how amazing of a stylist she is.

Marissa is also just a wonderful person. You want to get your hair styled by someone that makes you feel relaxed and happy when you are sitting in their chair, and that stylist is Marissa.
