Who is Marco Pina?
"Hairstylist Guru & Father of Two"
Meeting Marco Pina
From the moment I walked into the salon I got greeted by the receptionist who offered me some tea and asked to hang my coat on the coat rack. Marco my hairstylist then greeted me and asked me what exactly I had put my hair through and what I was hoping to get out of our consultation today.
After my consultation and showing Marco a picture of what I would like to do with my hair that day I was then escorted to change into a black robe and sat down back at my chair while Marco went to prepare the colors for my hair and offered me a mimosa while I wait.
Not to mention, I wasn't feeling too well that day I had a horrible headache but I didn't want to miss it for the world my appointment with Marco because I had heard wonders about him, so it was worth it! I had originally heard about him when I walked into Aveda at Pacific Place when in search of one of their products I had tried at my brother's girlfriend's house, "Be Curly", by Aveda and I feel in love!
Sydney had given me a consultation and some demonstrations on some products when I had gone to purchase, "Be Curly", by Aveda. She was absolutely wonderful because she wasn't sales pushy and seemed to genuinely care about finding a solution to repair my damaged hair after color treatment. Sydney made some calls and did everything she could to find a day that worked best with my work schedule and when Marco was available.
When Marco was done parting my hair and putting my new color in he than escorted me to the back of the salon where it was very peaceful and I sat down on these comfy couches and got my feet massaged. What more could I possibly ask for after having such a horrible migraine? The customer service at VannEdge was off the roof! Marco even offered to run to the store to buy me coconut water, a banana and an egg salad sandwich because I had not ate yet that morning and I was not feeling well.
One my hair was done soaking up my new color and I finished eating my food and hydrating myself with my coconut water. Marco then came and got me to get started on styling my hair. He blow dried my hair first which was really nice before cutting my hair so that he would be very precise when taking off length and dead ends because I had mentioned to him I wanted to grow my hair out. He was very accommodating and thoughtful in regards to what I wanted done with my hair.
Marco taught me how to properly blow dry my hair and picked out the products he recommended for my hair. He not only demonstrated on my hair the products but he also explained to me how to use each product one by one and how to apply it to my hair and when exactly. Shortly after came the receptionist to follow up with Marco when the next time he would like to follow up with me and he grabbed a basket and got all the products ready that Marco had picked out for me to purchase.
While Marco was finishing styling my hair I noticed the receptionist customizing a plate for me. He then approached us and handed Marco the finishing touch to my transformation. Marco applied on my face very gently a lip stick color customized to my skin color and some bronzer to top it off. VannEdge hands down had superb customer service and exceeded all of my expectations and I highly reccomend this salon to everyone!
