Marie Robinson is arguably the best hair colorist in the country, with loyal clients like Scarlett Johansson, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. The fact that she’s finally opened an offshoot of her beloved Manhattan salon — in Miami — is news enough. But the whole concept is novel: Rather than simply putting her name on the door, Robinson now works at both locations along with her NYC-based staff.
At her sun-washed Marie Robinson Salon in trendy Little River, Robinson, her husband/business partner Abell Oujaddou and their talented creative team pay concentrated attention to famous and non-famous clients alike.
“We hope to bring that extra-special degree of service, where you come into a beautiful environment and every single person is happy to see you,” Robinson told INDULGE. “Hair should be a living, breathing piece of art, so people stop to ask where you got it done. To me, that’s the ultimate.”

3. Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen
“I’ve never been the best at keeping up with my skin. These make it simple — and I think they’re working.”
4. Ironside Kitchen
