Marina

Quick Facts: Marina has been living in Virginia for nearly 5 years with her 6-year-old son and husband. She loves to travel, drawing inspiration from new places, people, and their styles. She adores watching the red carpet and examining the hairstyles of celebrities. She also enjoys a cozy family evening at home, watching a family movie.

Beauty Background: Marina’s first hairstyles were created on dolls, then on her younger sister, and at 9 years old, she asked her mother to curl her hair with thermal rollers. In middle school, she braided her classmates’ hair, and in high school, she prepared girls for their first dates. At 16, she asked her mother to take her out of school and enroll her in beauty college, where she studied for two years, and started working at 18. Over 17 years, she can’t count all the brides she’s styled, but she knows she loves being part of their wedding day, creating beauty. The year 2024 was remarkable; she went to study for her license and joined the women’s team at MAB, who beautify every bride and their friends.

Favorite Hair Product: Texturizing spray and MoroccanOil hairspray.

Favorite Beauty Hack: Spraying MAC fix+ on a brush to apply shimmer to the lid.

From The Artist: "There’s nothing more valuable than a happy bride; that’s when I’m happy with my work."

Testimonials

  • "We are so incredibly thankful for having the MAB team by our side on our wedding day. They were so incredibly flexible with all my million questions and requests.... At the last minute we made some changes that were throwing off our schedule for the day and their team continued to be beyond flexible and added another artist to our team. We are so glad to have gone with MAB for our hair/makeup on the big day and we couldn't recommend them enough!"

  • "MAB Studio made my hair and make-up vision come to life! When I had my trial sessions, both artists made recommendations that I would not have considered myself that truly brought my vision to life. This means a lot especially as someone who is not always comfortable in full make-up. I am so grateful to have worked with such experts in their craft! "

  • "I had a phenomenal experience working with MAB. The booking process was so easy, the bridal trial was perfect (a must!) and very convenient to plan with the artists/stylists. I loved not having to worry about the day-of timeline AND the artists/stylists all showed up early, which really eased my nerves. I am absolutely obsessed with how it turned out and got so many compliments, especially from my groom! Thank you, thank you, thank you! "

  • "We got married in May 2023 and I would high recommend Makeup by Ana B. I found them in summer of 2022 and they were available for my date needed. It was difficult looking for other hair/makeup vendors and trying to piece together the cost and if they were available, that is why I recommend makeup by Ana B! It is one stop shop for all of your hair and makeup needs. They will provide you with the best hair and makeup artists and it was a great experience start to finish!"
