New Artist/Assistant

Mara was born and raised in Colorado. As a young girl, Mara loved hair, makeup and fashion, so becoming a hair stylist was always at the forefront of her mind. After graduating high school, Mara took a job as a receptionist in a salon and loved seeing the relationships between stylist and clients grow. She noticed the very strong bond and level of trust between the two. Mara knew she wanted to be the person others trust to make themselves feel beautiful. To be the person others spend their self care time with was just so cool to her. With a dream to become that person, Mara attended the Aveda Institute for their brand and mission. She knew quickly that she had made the right choice. Coloring hair is Mara’s favorite thing to do behind the chair.  She loves creating blondes, balayages and lived in looks.  Mara is so excited to call Zinke her salon home. As an apprentice, Mara is inspired to be learning from beautiful, inspiring and talented individuals.

When Mara is not working on her craft, she enjoys hiking, reading and traveling.  Her boyfriend lives in England and they have been in a long distance relationship. Spending time with family, friends and her dog and two cats is important to her as well.

HOBBIES: Hiking, reading, traveling
