I am not a person who writes reviews online but I just received an email from Markirk so I thought I should share my experiences. Marlena, the owner is my hairdresser. I drive about 45 minutes to get to Markirk and it is definitely worth the trip. No one can do wonders on my hair as Marlena can. My hair is in the best shape it has ever been and her straightening techniques, haircuts, and styling is superb. She is an expert in hair care and is really knowledgeable about the latest trends and styles. The salon is gorgeous, the service and atmosphere is 5 star. I would not have my hair done at any other place by any other stylist. If you want your hair to look and feel the best it can be, this top notch salon is the place to go.
