Originally from Tucson Arizona, Marci moved to Bend from San Diego 12 years ago and loves it more every minute. Marci has traveled the globe and Bend is at the top of a very short list of her favorites; that's why she calls Bend Home. She is very "up" on the local happenings and you can usually spot her at most music venues (especially the outdoor ones), art walks, live theater, hiking the trails, floating the river, enjoying a bon fire and bbq at my place with friends... you name it.. the list goes on.
Marci trained and obtained her License from San Francisco Barber College in 1976 and has been a barber for 38 years and over 10,000 cuts! She opened Studio M in the downtown area of Bend in October of 2007 featuring old school barbering to the latest trends in fashion including straight razor neck shaves with hot lather and steam towels. Marci's specialty is cuts for the active lifestyles of men women and children of Central Oregon.
