My name is Marissa Neel and I have been a licensed stylist since 2011. I have an amazing, supportive husband who has been by my side in building my business and I couldn't be more grateful. Through all the stressors of growing and owning my own business, I truly don't know what I would do without him! He keeps me sane. We had our first baby December 2017, and we couldn't be more in love! My family will always be my first priority.
My first passion in life was painting and drawing. Two of my sisters and my grandmother introduced me into the artistic world and as soon as I had a taste I couldn't get enough. As I grew older, I started channeling my passion for art, through hair. I decided to attend Cosmetology school and right away I knew it was the best decision I could have made. I can't say it was an easy start right out of school; there is so much to know about this industry as a whole and it was completely overwhelming. There was a point in time I considered giving up on being a hair stylist but with a little patience and a lot of faith, my business took off! I have made my share of mistakes but I have learned so much over the past 8 years and continue to learn more each and every day.
As my career grew, I had the opportunity to start sharing my knowledge with other hairstylists from all over the U.S. I have been independently teaching for 4 years now and it has become a huge passion of mine. I love being able to share what works for me, with other stylists who are eager to learn and grow their careers. Community over competition!
