Dawn Marino

Freelance Hair Stylist      Based in New York



As a little girl growing up in her family’s hair salon, Dawn Marino would pretend to style the hair of clients while they sat in the chair. She would spend her days fascinated, watching her mother and grandmother as they worked. A graduate of the Aveda Institute in SoHo, Dawn started her own journey as a hair stylist.


Balancing her time styling hair at photo shoots and events in New York City, including designing the hair for various fashion designer look-books, she recently moved to London, England to continue her work in a new location. When not on set, Dawn enjoys coloring hair, with special focus on the art of balayage for custom hair color, as well as cutting.


Co-founder of Pretty Toxic, Dawn spends a portion of her time dedicated to advocating for safer cosmetics in salons. She chronicles her journey in her blog, Tousled, and has even lobbied on Capitol Hill to promote positive changes in the industry.  Affected personally by an unsafe product, Dawn focuses on a more non-toxic approach to beauty.


Dawn’s passion for hair is projected through her work, desire and drive, as she gives a piece of herself to each and every client. Constantly seeking the latest in education, she brings her enthusiasm to each service and welcomes her clients with the excitement that every service deserves.
