master esthetician / owner
I'm Marissa and I began my esthetics journey in December 2017 here in town at Josef's. After realizing entrepreneurship is for me, I started Bloom Beauty Bar in August 2018. I absolutely loved it! I wanted to teach young estheticians my way of customer service and service techniques, along with offering them job opportunities. So with that in mind, I opened the "New Bloom" in June 2021, and it has been completely life changing! I love my job.
I grew up in the Devils Lake area. I now share a home with my sweet rescue puppies, Kobe & Waffles! I have four adorable nephews and one spunky niece.
My favorite part about my job is getting to know each of my clients on such a personal level while making them feel incredibly confident. I am so excited for what the future holds for Bloom Beauty Bar.
Hello! I’m Chloe. I grew up here in Grand Forks. I decided I wanted to be in the beauty/skincare industry my sophomore year of high school.
Originally I wanted to become a cosmetic injector but quickly changed my mind when I found out about the esthetics program at Josefs School of Hair, Skin and Body here in town.
I recently graduated the program in January 2021. Shortly after I was in touch with Marissa and now I am a part of her team! I am extremely excited to start this next chapter in my life. I can’t wait to meet so many new amazing people and help them build their confidence. I hope to see you in Bloom soon!
Hey I’m Lexy! I grew up here in Grand Forks with my 3 other siblings. After beboppin around to a couple different colleges, I found my passion with beauty in September 2019 when I enrolled in the cosmetology program at Josef’s. I really enjoyed learning lash extensions and foiling blondes. I graduated in March of 2021 as a cosmetologist, however am focusing on esthetics since working at Bloom in June! My favorite services to perform are lash extensions and waxing! I am very attentive to my craft and my clients. I would like to show my appreciation for everyone and their continued support over the past few years!
I love to spend my free time painting, traveling, and hanging out with my boyfriend Wyatt and our kitten, Timmy.
Hi, I’m Shawna! I was born and raised here in Grand Forks. I attended Josef’s in Grand Forks in 2020 when I realized my passion for hair, skin, and body. While in cosmetology school, I took a lash class taught by Marissa! I picked it up quickly and was eager to keep learning. Marissa kept an eye on my work throughout the rest of my time in school. After graduating in May 2021, I passed my boards and received my license. That July, I started working for Marissa at Bloom. My top 3 favorite services are lash extensions, henna brows, and body waxing.
My clients have been so supportive, and have become near and dear to my heart! Thank you all for accepting me with open arms. In my free time you can find me hanging out with my friends and family, or cuddled up at home with my black kitten, Binx.
Hi, I'm Mataya! I am from Goodridge, MN. I met Marissa through Mary Kay in 2020, and soon afterwards realized that I wanted to become an esthetician.

Take advantage of my $99 full lash set promo happening through May 2022. I am looking forward to improving my skill in lash extensions. On the weekends, you can find me hanging out with family, friends, assisting with wedding makeup, or at the Silo Boutique downtown Grand Forks!
Hi, I'm Elle! I was raised in Hunter, ND with my two older sisters and younger brother.
