Designer & Colorist
Marika has been a hairdresser for nearly 40 years. She is originally from Chicago where she taught school before finding her real passion, hairdressing. She worked as master stylist for the premier salons in Chicago where she did many photo campaigns and even owned her own salon for 20 years. She was written up in the “Chicago Tribune” as best stylist. She has now been with Robert Leonard for 20 years. Her schooling has never finished. Marika doesn’t miss a class as she feels this is what continues to give her the edge her clients expect. She has the know how to interpret her clients need and wants even if they don’t have the ability to articulate it. She will lead you in the right direction weather it be a new color, hair extensions to give the client the density or length they have been wanting or a service to adjust texture in the form of a perm or a Brazilian smoothing treatment. These skills have earned her top client retention in our industry.
