Mara – Hairpolice


How long have you been in the industry?
Oh geez… 6 years. 12 if you count my massage therapy career… if you count receptioning.

Dreadlocks & extensions.

What is something unusual/funny about you?
I’m a hippy and I make my own deodorant.

What are your hobbies/interests outside of doing hair?
Lifting weights, watching fights, snuggling my babies. Not necessarily in that order.
