MARINE VONBRAUNBEHRENS 

Front Desk Coordinator 

Hi! I’m Marine and I’m from Oakland CA. I’m passionate about customer service and generally just a people person, I’ve had my cosmetology license since 2013 but I’ve shifted gears in the last couple years to concentrate on front desk and more behind the scenes work. I love problem solving and generally just supporting the people around me so they can concentrate on the art of hair. When I’m not scheduling or helping out at the salon I love to write music and poetry. I’m so excited to be a part of the Parlour Team and I look forward to meeting you!

SERINA GAGNON

Master  Stylist 

Hi, my name is Serina and I was born and raised in the Bay Area. From an early age I have always had a love for color and creativity and became a licensed cosmetologist in 2005. I love being in this industry because I have met so many people, learned a lot about life, and have been able to connect with others in a unique way that not many people get to experience. Every client that has sat in my chair has left a lasting impression and it keeps me passionate in what I do. I am so excited to join Parlour and feel honored to be a part of this talented team!
