Marissa Bergstreser

Name: Marissa Bergstreser

Job: Hair Stylist, Mane Street Hair Design

Lives in: Dotsero

In high school I was … On the dance team. My friend and I started it our senior year in 2002 and it is still going.

If I was a T-shirt, I would be (fabric, color, any print?)… Lightweight and super soft.

What’s the best thing about your town? I grew up in Denver and moved to Gypsum my junior year of high school and have never left. I love that everyone knows everyone and supports one another.

The best thing about my job is… I get to change people’s lives. Some may say that I just cut hair, but it is so much more than that. People walk in and tell me that they feel “Blah, down, heavy, frumpy, drab, etc.” They walk out feeling like a completely different person and it is because of what I did that changes it. I also absolutely love the the relationships that I have made with my clients. They are not only my clients but my friends as well. Every single one of them has changed my life in so many ways and I am so thankful for them.

As a kid, I always… Was dancing and singing. I love to perform.

If I could be any superhero, I’d be… Super woman so I could save people’s lives.

If I was given a million dollars, the first thing I’d buy is… A house for my sister so she could move back to Colorado and we could raise our kids together.
