Marc Mena is a celebrity hairstylist who has been creating amazing editorial and red carpet hair looks for more than a decade, working on legendary supermodels like Christy Turlington Burns, master actors like Marcia Gay Harden and entrepreneurial powerhouses like Ivanka Trump.
Though he specializes in the seemingly more complicated aspects of hair (notably, sculptural dry cuts and are-they-or-aren’t-they extensions), Marc believes that the marker of a perfect hair day isn’t a quirky cut or pricey treatment—it’s simply well-cared for and healthy strands.His sister had alopecia her senior year in high school, so he started doing her hair to cover up her bald spots. It was then that he realized how good he was at styling hair, and how good it made other people feel.
When he was young in his career, he got scouted from a big beauty brand. He was discovered by a woman who was a client of the salon where he worked. She represented a haircare brand and started coming to him for blow-dries. But what he didn’t realize was that every time she came into the salon, she was actually interviewing him and finding out more about him.
After several times of coming to him, she thought that he would be great at representing the brand and it took off from there.The company signed him to be a spokesperson and from there he learned how to make people feel good and how to teach people how to use products at home. That really shaped him and made him able to teach people how to use a product and take care of their own hair.
His clientele includes: Christina Ricci, Cynthia Nixon, Emily Blunt, Eva Longoria, Joan Smalls, Madelaine Petsch, Mindy Kaling and Natalia Dyer.
