From a family of hair salon owners in El Paso, Texas, Marlene went straight into the family business and quickly developed a love of hairdressing, and a deep admiration for its artists. After two years working as a stylist, she moved to New York to be a part of the trendsetting epicenter of fashion and beauty. Already aware of our work, Marlene made a beeline for ARROJO to join an independent brand that commits to the creative and artistic nature of the craft, while offering opportunities for career progression. As a colorist she blends knowledge of latest trends with a painter’s eye and technical excellence. “I love being a colorist because it allows me to transform the way people feel about themselves while doing something creative,” she says.
