Tracy began her career as a stylist in the late 1980s at a high end chain salon in the Western Suburbs of Chicago.  There she became fully versed in hair cutting, coloring, and styling. Additionally, Tracy gained the invaluable experience of working as a platform artist as her salon provided all the education for the entire chain. In the early 90s, Tracy secured a position as a freelance artist for Sebastian International which launched her into an exciting and adventurous career involving constant cutting edge training, travel, teaching and platform work over the next 15 years. Tracy has worked on numerous hair and fashion shows all throughout the United States, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Holland, and Japan and has built lasting relationships with famous photographers and visionaries within the industry such as Geri Cusenza and Robert Labetta. As her work and experience became more revolutionized, Tracy sought out a place to work amongst others who were extremely talented and where education and trends were at the forefront and immediately chose Marianne Strokirk Salon. The unique aspect about Marianne Strokirk is that all the many talents are combined in the education process to stress continual learning and growth. Tracy was able to bring additional education to the Salon’s apprentice program because of her extensive Sebastian experience. Tracy continues to work and thrive at Marianne Strokirk Salon as one of the top stylists and colorists while remaining involved with the apprentices and their ongoing training. Tracy’s work has been featured in Town and Country Magazine as well as many other professional magazines.
