Mare Salon

With the opening of Mare Salon, stylists Mara Roszak and Alex Polillo and colorist Denis De Souza are making it possible for you to achieve red carpet-worthy looks like their clients Emma Stone, Brie Larson and Amy Poehler.

For every A-list head of hair in Hollywood there is the talented artist who tends to them for red-carpet appearances, photo shoots, premieres and press junkets. Three of those most in-demand hair pros have joined forces and recently opened their own salon where their clients — including Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Cara Delevingne, Amy Poehler, Rooney Mara, Kate Mara and Lily Collins — will head to for cuts, color and style (when not in need of a house call).

Stylist Mara Roszak, colorist Denis De Souza and stylist Alex Polillo have opened Mare Salon, situated in a converted home on a quaint West Hollywood side street. It’s the latest in the celeb hair stylist spinoff salons where the brightest talent in the industry see their clients (celeb and non-celeb) as often as possible considering their demanding travel schedules.

It’s why the trio has created a serene space with an outdoor area where clients' color can process. The architectural and interior designs were done in collaboration with Richard Petit and The Archers. Art, curated by Deborah Irmas and furniture from JF Chen, is all for sale in the gallery-like setting.

"We wanted Mare to feel like home as much as we could," says Polillo, "Being that it was a high-end hair salon, we needed to deliver some glamor, which we tried to accomplish with lighting and the glass block, and copious amount of marble."

In addition to the three hair stylists (De Souza focuses on color) will be a team of 12 other stylists who will see clients regularly.
