Today we’d like to introduce you to Marianne Strokirk.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Marianne. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I began in Stockholm, Sweden at the age of 17. My father was a hairstylist, and I was an apprentice in his salon for 4 years. Afterwards, I worked a year in London and Paris. Later, I moved to the US for 1 year to work, and here I am many years later.
I opened my first salon in 1989 and a 2nd one in 1994. I have trained many stylists globally. I have been a part of many hair shows around the world, including the Alternative Show and at the Royal Albert Hall, and runway shows including Armani, etc. My clientele includes many celebrities and high profile people. I recently opened a brand-new location and continue to grow some of the best hairstylist in the world.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Not always, but I feel very fortunate that as a whole it’s been an extraordinary road!
Please tell us about Marianne Strokirk Salon.
Marianne Strokirk Salon is a trendsetting salon. Our talented stylists spend a lot of time training and in education in order to provide exceptional skills. We specialize in hair cutting and hair color. I’m most proud of the team I have built.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from childhood is horseback riding.
