Marcy Schlichting-Licensed Cosmetologist


“Hi, my name is Marcy! I specialize in creating looks that fit each client’s life and style. My favorite thing to do in the art of cosmetology is to bring out a person’s natural beauty by picking cuts and colors that complement his or her face shape and skin tone. I am a great listener and make sure everyone who sits in my chair is my number one priority!


I love doing what I do because I get to make people feel good about themselves from the moment they come in until the moment they leave. I have had a passion for hair since I was a little girl and took it to the next level by attending Capri Cosmetology. I continue my education by keeping up with the latest trends and styles and attending

regular classes.
