My favorite thing about being a stylist is watching the transformations each day as they take place in the salon. I love seeing your faces light up with confidence in the mirror for the reveal at the end of each visit, and I love that I can play a small part in helping you to see the beauty in yourself that was really always there to begin with.

As a single mama, I know self care is an important part of your well being. I want you to have a relaxing experience, enjoy some "me" time & walk back out into the world feeling completely confident and recharged. 

I'm most known for creating custom natural looks, including low maintenance blondes, dimensional color, balayage and natural looking seamless extensions. I'm passionate about education and I love staying up to date on the latest trends and education so that I can offer you the most up-to-date experience possible.

I’m a solution-based stylist and love helping you find a style that both reflects your personality AND works with your hair type! I work together with all of my guests to create a long term hair care plan, ensuring that their color, cut & style always looks fresh while still feeling effortless. I'll be checking in at every visit to see if any new issues have come up, and we will work through them together. 

When I’m not behind the chair you can usually find me barefoot in the grass, exploring our beautiful Arizona outdoors, doing yoga, dancing, or cooking a fun healthy meal, with a glass of wine in hand.


I look forward to connecting with you and helping you achieve all of your hair dreams!



I have struggled with acne and acne scars for most of my life and always wished there was something that I could do to just make it go away! When my Mom’s best friend did a series of intense pulsed light treatments on me for facial redness I was hooked! I knew from that moment that laser was the job for me! 


When my kids grew up I decided to go to school. I Graduated from the National Laser Institute in May of 2009 as a Certified Laser Technician. I am certified to do Laser Hair Reduction, Photo-facial Skin Rejuvenation, Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing,Facial Redness, Broken Capillaries and Spider VeinReduction, Age Spots, Freckles, Wrinkles, Skin Tightening, Acne Scar Reduction, Adult Hemangioma Reduction, Surgical scars and Stretch Mark Reduction.


I’ve been doing laser for over 10 years now and the power and endless possibilities never cease to amaze me! I have seen beautiful, dramatic changes in both my skin and the skin of my clients and am so grateful to be a part of peoples skin transformations! My goal as a Laser Tech is to not only help people have the radiant, smooth and glowing skin of their dreams, but to also educate people about the countless benefits of clean, safe and professional laser treatments.

Mariel Guzma 

With seven years of experience as a skilled hairdresser, multiple extension certifications, and four years as an educator in the industry, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my craft. My specialties lie in both natural color techniques and bold fashion colors, allowing me to create a diverse range of looks for my clients.


Originally from another state, I followed my dream to Arizona, a place I always believed to be a safe haven for me. Outside of work, I enjoy immersing myself in the beauty of nature through hiking and exploring new and exciting restaurants. Two of my favorite pastimes include thrifting for unique finds and caring for my collection of plants, which bring me joy and relaxation in my free time.


As a warm and friendly stylist I love getting to know all the unique people who come and sit in my chair. I thrive on collaboration and teamwork and bring a positive energy to Desert Rose and to every client experience. 

I am a hair enthusiast who has conquered the challenge of dealing with fine, straight hair. Through my own personal journey and experimentation, I have cracked the code to achieving volume and body for this hair type. I understand the frustrations and struggles that come with trying to add volume to fine, straight hair, and I am here to share my insights and tips to help you achieve the voluminous hair you desire. Let me guide you through the techniques and products that can transform limp locks into full, bouncy styles that will leave you feeling confident and fabulous.

As a blow-dry stylist, my passion for creativity and artistry shines through in every hairstyle I create. With a keen eye for detail and a flair for the unique, I strive to bring out the best in each client's hair, enhancing their natural beauty with my skills. When I'm not busy transforming hair in the salon, you can find me enjoying quality time with my family and friends, cherishing those special moments that inspire me to bring joy to others through my hairstyling expertise. Let me work my magic on your hair and help you look and feel your best for any occasion.

As the salon coordinator, I also ensure that each guest feels pampered and comfortable during their visit. I also serve as the salon photographer, capturing stunning before and after pictures to showcase the transformative beauty experiences our clients undergo.
